Built To Spill are such a great band. "Ultimate Alternative Wavers" got many plays in Chez Mortimer back in the 90s.

Uncle Tupelo used to play Cortez as an encore with Brian Hennemann playing lead. Goddam those were good shows. Wish I'd seen more.

They're one of my favorite bands. Did you ever pick up Keep It Like A Secret? It's their masterpiece.

This was another tough choice. I'm going with Cortez because the trumpet guy's head didn't explode.

I must have heard it, but I don't remember it at all. Time to renew my relationship with it, I reckon.

He's one of those guys that every time I hear a song, I wonder why I don't listen more often.
