Thanks Jon, much appreciated. Awfully kind of the band to share that out on FB.

A tribute:

Tempted to smoke a cigarette in honor of Don.

I think I'd like to have a cigarette now. Where are my cigarettes, David?
They're on top of the refrigerator.
David, I'd like to know what you did with my cigarettes.
They're under the house.
My cigarettes are missing, David. I'd like to smoke. What did you do with them?
They're in the toad cage.
David, I'd like to have a cigarette right now but I can't find the package. I put them on the table and they're not there. Did you take them?
I think we may have left them up at Grandma's house.
My mother doesn't smoke, David. What did you do with my cigarettes?
I told you, they're on top of the refrigerator.
I looked on top of the refrigerator. They aren't there. will you please tell me what you did with my cigarettes?
Maybe you left them in the car.
I haven't been in the car all day. You must have put them somewhere and I can't find them. You better tell me now or I'm going to really get mad.
Oh yeah, I think I know where they are. They're in back of the TV set, where all the parakeet feathers are.
As you're cleaning the orange carpet, there'll be a voice that says: FETCH MY CIGARETTES.
Another voice will say: THEY'RE ON TOP OF THE REFRIGERATOR.
And then of course you've forgotten completely about the green slime.

And now praise in turn for MP's own words and remembrances:

30th anniversary of Helter Stupid this year. One of the all-time "you could never get away with that today" stories. Imagine some metal band trying to piggyback on a school shooting by claiming the killer was an obsessed fan of theirs.

I could see the edgelords trying.

I saw Hosler solo on Halloween (with The Weatherman opening!) - was way more groove-based, at times leaning dubward, than I would have expected. Very few vocal samples, and no explicit cultural-critical aspects at all.

Helter Stupid is great, supreme entertainment.
