No, wait, they started the show with "Still and All." I knew it couldn't be
something so cheerful as "Racheland."
I think Glass did go under. What a magnificent label. I remember being
seventeen and buying "50,000 Glass Fans Can't Be Wrong" (on clear vinyl, no
less!), then writing them a letter begging to be some sort of American
correspondent. Butcher, Eider, Sudden, Kusworth, Spacemen 3, Mayo Thompson,
Pastels, David J, Outskirts . . . and a band I've never heard from again,
Peter Sellers and the Hollywood Party. A supergroup one-off? A joke? A
damn fine song, in any case. "Chaotic Shampoo and Strange Rock 'n' Roll" or
something along those lines.
