Dr Desert Flower is playing Direct TV's "Alternative" station today as we throw things out and get ready for this week's move, further south in California. I heard a song by Ski Patrol... and I thought... "I liked them when they were called the Violent Femmes". Then.. the song got more whiney, and had more back-ground guitar music... and I said.. no... this is like if Morrissey and the Violent Femmes had drunken sex, and then 9 months later, they'd give birth to Ski Patrol. (hard to do, since Morrissey & all the Violent Femmes members are all male... but the analogy still stands).
I still do like the Violent Femmes. I have never really liked Morrissey (too whiny, too self absorbed, too preachy for me. I am undecided on Ski Patrol.
