Just got a whole mess of video of live MTX ca. 1995 from various venues throughout the country. Whole lot of interesting stuff, many memorable shows that I'd largely forgotten about till reminded of them now. Previously unattested songs. In other words, Odin-fodder. Check back on Wodnesdæg. From Shayne Stacy. Thanks very much!

Donna Reed is not my mom... https://youtu.be/zd9u49P75VA Thinking of this REM cover my band did for an REM covers album called Surprise Your Pig way back in 1991 because of a twitter post responding to something about mishearing REM lyrics: https://twitter.com/HitlerPuncher/status/1169253864165560321?s=20 "Have you ever heard the Mr. T Experience cover of “Can’t Get There From Here?” They made up their own nonsense lyrics instead of trying to figure out Stipe. It’s fairly hilarious." Subsequently he says: "I mean it’s musically a fairly generic pop punk cover but my god it makes me chuckle." Grateful that it still makes people chuckle, and I understand the impulse to offer a caveat/disclaimer when citing something from a band like mine in polite company. "Pop punk" isn't exactly respectable among real important people these days if it ever was. I'd probably want to offer a disclaimer myself. As I often do. Not saying this is all that good but it does have its moments.... I've been writing this all over the place about my songs lately, in fact. But that said, and not saying this is all that good but: "generic pop punk" isn't the descriptor I'd choose for this recording. Blown-up? Bombastic? Barely intelligible? My idea of generic pop punk sounds very, very different from this, which is, in fact, very very weird. If I'm to be perfectly honest I only *wish* I were capable of generic. Generic is just another word for stuff people like, right? Anyway, the lyrics-swap is funny and justifies its existence as far as I'm concerned, generic or not. A re-mastered version was included in the 2018 compilation MTX Shards vol. 1: https://www.discogs.com/The-Mr-T-Experience-Shards-Vol-1/master/1414333 #music #songs #poppunk #genericism #minds
