    I don’t think we’ve ever even discussed this, but it is strange that you picked this song – it’s one of my favorites, ever. Maybe there is a reason we are in a “band” (that is extremely inferior to Magazine) together.

    Since I came to love this song I have thought it would be very cool to try to write ” a song from ______” some other inanimate place, basically stealing their idea, but ruining it, MPT style. Do it.

    Yeah, I’m not sure when I came to know about Magazine. Maybe Matt played something for me once. I have one of their records and like it quite a bit. And, yeah, I like the idea of having a song come from “out of the ventilator,” or whatever.

    Speaking of vents, do you remember the YL/MPT show where the rest of you played downstairs in the basement of some house in Ann Arbor, and I ran a super-long bass cord through an air duct and into the living room upstairs? Playing bass while sitting on a couch at a party while the rest of the band was playing downstairs is still one of my favorite band memories.

    Was that at Tubbs’? Vague memory. Sounds authentically like one of your lazy-ass ideas, though.

    I think a guy I used to work with – Alev – was staying at the house. As I recall, it was near Treasure Mart. I was upstairs on a couch, drinking beer, and playing along with you guys in the basement. It was perfect. It was all the fun of playing in a noise band, with very little of the pain.
