We had fun at the Drag City party. I got to sing backups for Bonnie Prince Billy!! That was so cool. He played two songs but I didn’t know the second one so I laid out for that. It was soooo packed in there. At midnight I was running around the crowd trying to find John while everybody else was kissing and hugging each other all around me. One minute later I found him so we did the 12:01 kiss, oh well, same diff. We didn’t stay very long after that; the Scene Creamers were playing when we bolted around 1. I didn’t have the nerve to take any pictures, but I should have. I’m out of the habit; I didn’t take a single picture when we were down in Texas either!

I found Muze listed at FuckedCompany.com, that’s another place I used to work ten years ago. There was always a lot of controversy there between the workers and management, so I wasn’t surprised to see people had complained about it. But despite all that, we had a super excellent team back then, and I made more lasting friendships there than almost anywhere else I’ve worked. One guy who commented on FC actually listed the nicknames of our whole ’93 crew and even gave me a personal shout-out!! I mean, as one of the NICE people, as opposed to somebody he’d complain about. I know who it was, too, and I feel the same way about him, and everyone he listed.
This is a four-song 12" EP / CD-EP. I did backups on all 4 songs, along with a whole bunch of other singers like Bill Callahan (Smog), Kelly Hogan, Archer Prewitt, and Laetitia Sadier (Stereolab).
Drag City: This Means War
©1996, Jade Music / Toy’s Factory #TFCK-88784 (Japan)
My song "Calling Over Time" (the same version that later appeared on my first album of the same name) was included on this Japanese compilation CD, along with tracks by Palace Brothers, Royal Trux, The Red Krayola, Gastr del Sol, Smog, Flying Saucer Attack, Plush, Silver Jews, and Cynthia Dall.
Released sometime around the spring of 1996; I’m not sure of the exact date. I can’t read Japanese, but it’s almost certainly out of print, and isn’t available on Drag City’s site either.
