It’s honestly not my favo(u)rite song off their new album, but it is a good song all the same and I like the video of ‘day in the life’ moments from their recent US tour.
Believe it or not, I actually tried quite hard to avoid making this month’s mix too current – starting with Wanda Jackson‘s incredible haunting 1961 country/rock “Funnel of Love,” as well as including a few 90s tracks that I think are just as good now as they were 15 years ago. RIP (Gaunt frontman) Jerry Wick.
I can’t be the only person who grew up on Superchunk and then spent my early adulthood enamored with Les Savy Fav. (LSF lead singer) Tim mentioned last week that he sang “Precision Auto” with Superchunk at San Miguel Primavera Sound (that’s in Spain), which is like the 90s punk rock version of the Arcade Fire/David Byrne on-stage pairings of 2005.
For those who can remember back to 2007, Les Savy Fav covered “Precision Auto” at Citysol in New York. Here’s a video of the event, courtesy of bittermelodies on Youtube. Kudos to them for taking a relatively watchable video… there’s no way I would have been able to keep a steady hand while bouncing around like a maniac had I been there. And I still say that On The Mouth is my favorite Superchunk album, although I have absolutely nothing against the later releases.
