"I took my nephew to their first Portland, Maine "rock show" a couple of years ago. Best concert experience of my life--and I've seen Dylan, Willie Nelson, and Hag. It was one of their last gigs with Shonna Tucker, so…"
Seth (Palookaville) is one of the triumvirate of autobiographical graphic novelists along with Chester Brown (Yummy Fur) and my favorite, Joe Matt (Peepshow). Seth and Chester Brown are Canadians; Joe Matt is an American who live illegally in Canada for several years. I think you would enjoy their work. I certainly enjoy yours.
Shawn...I've enjoyed reading your comments regarding the new Wilco effort and also your thought on the whole Jeff Tweedy/Jay Farrar relationship. I love Wilco and pretty much everything they have done but also feel the same about Jay Farrar. One thing that can be said about Farrar is that he stayed true to his alt-country roots. I certainly wouldn't classify anything Wilco has done as alt-country but I still love their music nonetheless. I too have Read Learning How To Die and I find myself fascinated at the relationship Tweedy and Farrar had and exactly what went wrong and who was to blame. I am thankful that there once was a group named Uncle Tupelo and that two outstanding groups were formed after the breakup. Trace might be the best album I have ever purchased. I am going to see Jay Farrar in Bellinghman WA next month... can't wait. Cheers!
