I started drinking. The first thing I know, I'm in a card game. Then I'm in a crap game. I wake up in a pool hall. Then this big Mexican lady drags me off the table, takes me to Philadelphia. She leaves me alone in her house, and it burns down. I wind up in Phoenix. I get a job as a Chinaman. I start working in a dime store, and move in with a year-old girl.

Then this big Mexican lady from Philadelphia comes in and burns the house down. I go down to Dallas. I get a job as a "before" in a Charles Atlas "before and after" ad. I move in with a delivery boy who can cook fantastic chili and hot dogs.

Then this year-old girl from Phoenix comes and burns the house down. The delivery boy - he ain't so mild: He gives her the knife, and the next thing I know I'm in Omaha. It's so cold there, by this time I'm robbing my own bicycles and frying my own fish. I stumble onto some luck and get a job as a carburetor out at the hot-rod races every Thursday night.

I move in with a high school teacher who also does a little plumbing on the side, who ain't much to look at, but who's built a special kind of refrigerator that can turn newspaper into lettuce. Everything's going good until that delivery boy shows up and tries to knife me. Needless to say, he burned the house down, and I hit the road. The first guy that picked me up asked me if I wanted to be a star. What could I say? People have different emotional levels. Especially when you're young.

Back then I guess most of my influences could be thought of as eccentric. Mass media had no overwhelming reach so I was drawn to the traveling performers passing through. The side show performers - bluegrass singers, the black cowboy with chaps and a lariat doing rope tricks.

Miss Europe, Quasimodo, the Bearded Lady, the half-man half-woman, the deformed and the bent, Atlas the Dwarf, the fire-eaters, the teachers and preachers, the blues singers. I remember it like it was yesterday. I got close to some of these people. I learned about dignity from them. Freedom too. Civil rights, human rights. How to stay within yourself. Most others were into the rides like the tilt-a-whirl and the roller-coaster.

To me that was the nightmare. All the giddiness. The artificiality of it. The sledge hammer of life. It didn't make sense or seem real. The stuff off the main road was where force of reality was. At least it struck me that way. When I left home those feelings didn't change. I'm coming out of the folk music tradition and that's the vernacular and archetypal aesthetic that I've experienced. Those are the dynamics of it.

I couldn't have written songs for the Brill Building if I tried. Whatever passes for pop music, I couldn't do it then and I can't do it now. There was no fitting into it then and of course, there's no fitting into it now. Some of my songs have crossed over but they were all done by other singers. They started out anti-establishment and now they are in charge of the world. Celebratory songs. Music for the grand dinner party.

Mainstream stuff that played into the culture on a pervasive level. My stuff is different from those guys. It's more desperate. They made perfect records, so they have to play them perfectly My records were never perfect. So there is no point in trying to duplicate them. Anyway, I'm no mainstream artist. Sometimes I might shift paradigms within the same song, but then that structure also has its own rules. And I combine them both, see what works and what doesn't.

My range is limited. Some formulas are too complex and I don't want anything to do with them. The myth of the starving artist is a myth. The big bankers and prominent young ladies who buy art started it. They just want to keep the artist under their thumb.

Who says an artist can't have any money? Look at Picasso. The starving artist is usually starving for those around him to starve. You don't have to starve to be a good artist. Bees Around The Lime Tree Memory Gore Confession Bay It's A Low Decompression Carcass The Golden Bough Babes Of The Plague Four Bibles Wherever they may roam. Four Bibles is their twelfth studio album and the first to be released by London label ALTER, whose sole proprietor the electronic producer Helm encountered the group at their first gig in The band has also fine-tuned to leave some room for extra depth.

Like every other Hey Colossus record before, the line-up has altered and the sounds reflect this. Several songs on the album feature guest vocals from Lewis, as well as vocals from indie rock musician Jen Wood.

Tamborello and Gibbard's Death Cab for Cutie bandmate Chris Walla produced the album [ citation needed ] , with Walla also playing the guitar and piano on several tracks. Although both Gibbard and Tamborello's main projects were still active at the time, The Postal Service supported the album with a successful concert tour, and stated its intention to tour again in the future.

Give Up received gold certification by the Recording Industry Association of America in March , and later receiving platinum certification in October The album was Sub Pop's most successful release after Nirvana 's debut album, Bleach.

The album produced three singles , the most well-known single being " Such Great Heights ", which was released as Give Up' s lead single. A cover of the song by Iron and Wine was featured on the soundtrack for the film Garden State. Confide would later release a music video for their cover of "Such Great Heights". The third and final single, " We Will Become Silhouettes ", was covered by The Shins , and the original version was featured in the trailer for the movie Funny People.

On June 22, , it was revealed that The Postal Service had begun work on a new album, though the specifics of the production and the release date were vague. Gibbard stated, "We're slowly starting. We're crawling right now, and whether that crawl turns into a walk remains to be seen. But we'll know more towards the end of the year. I've just been touring so much and trying to find time to make it happen and make our schedules line up.

I definitely want to do another one. On February 29, , Spinner released an article stating that The Postal Service may not release a new album. Ben Gibbard stated, "Jimmy and I are still throwing ideas back and forth, but as time goes on, we find ourselves busy with our own music. We have some stuff, but it's been difficult to find the time and the drive to do the record.

World Gone Wrong. MTV Unplugged. Time Out of Mind. Love and Theft. Masked and Anonymous. Bob Dylan: Les Chroniques, Vol. Sony BMG. Modern Times. I'm Not There [Original Soundtrack]. Together Through Life. We are doing this woman a favor to even let her come and sing with us. She came in and she was dressed like a little Texan. She didn't look like a hippie, she looked like my mother, who is also from Texas. She sang real well but it wasn't like, "Oh we're bowled over. It was probably bowling her over.

I am sure we didn't turn down enough for her. She wrote letters home about how exotic all of us were. The names of the bands. That kind of thing. In other words, we weren't flattened by her and she wasn't flattened by us. It was probably a pretty equal meeting. She was real intelligent, Janis was, and she always rose to the occasion.

She sang the songs. It wasn't like this moment of revelation like you would like it to be. Like in a movie or something. It wasn't like, "Oh my God, now we have gone to heaven. We have got Janis Joplin. It took her about a year to really learn how to sing with an electric band. It took a while for some of the band's followers to accept the new singer. Her music was completely different from that which Big Brother was playing at that time.

Big Brother had a very experimental and unconventional sound, but with Joplin, they became more disciplined musicians, their songs adopted a more traditional structure, and the band started to increase its popularity in the San Francisco psychedelic scene. In September , the band was stranded in Chicago after finishing a gig there at a venue called Mother Blues located on Wells Street. The venue's owner paid them for two weeks' worth of their concerts but could not pay them enough money for them to buy plane tickets to San Francisco.

Big Brother signed a contract with Mainstream Records. Mainstream was known for its jazz records, and Big Brother was the first rock band to appear on the label.

  8. This books is kinda hard to follow at times, but it's still a good read. I read Ben Weasel's "Punk is a Four Letter Word" first so i could guess what some of the semi-fictional stories were. I could imagine writing a book from the second person perspective would drive someone crazy so my hat goes off to .
