Recently yelled by a very drunk me at a Teasers show: "Are you Mark E. Smith or a mirage?" To which Ben, the singer, stared me down. "Fuck you!" I yell. And then he played "Drove a Truck," the song that I asked him to. Fucking pushover!

And the new SAME record was a dud for me at first, but now I totally
love it. "I'm a New Person Ma'am," "Secrets In Welsh" and "Adam Wakes
Up" are fantastic songs.
Yes! I'm glad someone agrees. I've only got the first two singles and
am desperately trying to track down the Patrick Swayze record, but
everything I've heard is amazing.
Ben Wallers from Country Teasers was in The Male Nurse, and they may
have shared other members as well. Information is a bit sketchy on
that one (Googling "The Male Nurse" gives you more links to pages
about the film "Magnolia" than it does info about the band).
Of course there's always late period Yummy Fur...

I can't believe how gorgeous this Rebel stuff is either.

I've been pretty obsessed lately. anyone catching Wallers on this current US tour? and is it just he and a drum machine or is he rolling with a band? my job is being a dickhead and I'll probably miss him in Atl. hopefully I can get to NOLA tomorrow or Memphis next week.
