God. Life sucks enough and now this...



Dave Blood hung himself and John McGeoch keeled over...



As the immortal pop stars rape our senses and morals (if any) the real winners fade and die.



Rest in Peace fvckers.







Punk Rock Girl {The Dead Milkmen}



One Saturday I took a walk to Zipperhead

I met a girl there and she almost knocked me dead



Punk rock girl

Please look at me

Punk rock girl

What do you see?

Let's travel round the world

Just you and me punk rock girl



I tapped her on the shoulder

And said do you have a bell?

She looked at me and smiled and said she did not know



Punk rock girl

Give me a chance

Punk rock girl

Let's go slam dance

We'll dress like Minnie Pearl

Just you and me punk rock girl



We went to the Philly Pizza Company

And ordered some hot tea

The waitress said well no we only have it iced

So we jumped up on the table and shouted anarchy

And someone played a Beach Boys song on the jukebox

It was "California Dreamin"

So we started screamin

On such a winter's day



She took me to her parents for a Sunday meal

Her father took one look at me and he began to squeal



Punk rock girl

It makes no sense

Punk rock girl

Your dad is always president

Who'll joust the duke of earl

Yeah you're for me punk rock girl



We went to a shopping mall

And laughed at all the shoppers

And security guards trailed us to a record shop

We asked for Mojo Nixon

They said he don't work here

We said if you don't got Mojo Nixon then your store could use some fixin



We got into her car away we started rollin

I said how much you pay for this

She said nothin' man it's stolen



Punk rock girl

You look so wild

Punk rock girl

Let's have a child

We'll name her Minnie Pearl

Just you and me

Eat fudge pack and a swirl

Just you and me

We'll travel round the world

Just you and me

Punk rock girl

    Right...couldn't get into the site and trusted another losers take on the lyrics. I knew the band (even...years later had a job interview with Dean...liked my Iggy Pop stuff). Saw them many times and went home with many punk rock girls (thanx)...memories, oh...the memories...



    Guess nobody else cares...but if you want try this...enjoy it while it lasts...

    Well, I feel sad for his family and friends - the suicide of someone you care about is a horrible, horrible thing - and I feel sorry for him for feeling driven to that for whatever reason...but I can't say that the Dead Milkmen were a huge musical influence on me. I guess I have a bit of a soft spot for Beelzebubba though.



    "Smokin' banana peels sounds like this!"

    The Dead Milkmen are a truly under appreciated band. I'm sorry for their loss. Had the pleasure of seeing them perform a couple of times and I cherish those memories.

    I saw the last Dead Milkmen show EVER at the Troc in Philly. It was a great show but a sad night to think I'd never see them perform live again. Apparently Dave never got over the bank retiring.

    ...and there doesn't seem to be any Dead Milkmen on iTMS. What a horrible time/event to remember that you never got your CD back from a friend.

    I hate it when the cool rock stars kill themselves. Though I would never figure a guy from the Dead Milkmen to be a tortured soul. It'd be like Gene and Dean Ween signing a suicide pact.



    Crap.

    A friend told me about this last night when I started quoting lines from "Stuart" to him. I'd had the pleasure of meeting them all after a show on South Street in Philly a while ago. I'll never forget Rodney Anonymous pulling off a sweater adn wearing a New Kids on the Block Tshirt. and screaming:

    "I know that I'm crazy

    I know that I'm nuts

    But at least I admit it

    And I think that takes some guts

    The specialist doesn't care

    What the voices say

    He's got a lot of pretty pills

    To make the voices go away

    Take me to the specialist"



    <sigh>
