Kind of feel this 1990 Eric Flaum letter to Bill Callahan has been neglected since we first posted it on 11/8/13. Bill slags The Bob. Which one of you - rockscissorsgunexcluded - can provide a detailed explanation of why that was funny 24 years ago? No Googling!
Bill Callahan is an internationally renowned artist and musician who is touring the United States in October and November of 2013 behind his new album Dream River, which you can buy at Drag City.
Holy moly! Bill certainly could not have really meantthis: “I fear that Gone II will indeed be a little too far gone for some folks (esp. girls, as a friend pointed out).” Is that a put on or did he fabricate the imaginary friend as cover? Hard to tell from this distance.
Would the female musicians currently mining the low end crust of prime Dukowski/GinneraSSTinFLOWNandWHORE PAINTthink it’s too far gone? They (and you) can write Bill about it atDrag City and tell him: P.O. Box 476867, Chicago, IL 60647; Phone: 312-455-1015; Fax: 312-455-1057
If Jerry Seinfeld was still doing stand up and was enamored with the music and fuckinrecordreviews on display at our tumblr, he could start a 2013 routine with, “What’s the deal with Greg Ginn?”He could do that.
