[music |surprisingly, nothing]

I went to Everyday Music yesterday and bought Log 22 and Private Suit. I haven't listened to PS yet, but L22 effing rocks.

(also bought Sonic Youth's Goo and Buffalo Tom's Big Red Letter Day.)

I realized this last night [Aug. 27th, 2007|05:31 pm]

There's a 2-hour radio program called The Bottom Forty that I listen to every Sunday night. I requested (read: begged, pleaded, cajoled) Greg Glover, the host, to play some Bettie Serveert for me. He agreed and played "Kid's Alright" last night, which means he wins everything ever. Before he did, he frontsold the song with "and now, requested music from Holland's Bettie Serveert..." (and then delved a little bit into the history of the band and the origin of their name, which I thought was cool even though I knew it already. I'll ask him if he can quote it for me and if he does, I'll post it here) And I thought "Wait a second, that's not right, they're from Denmark," but then two seconds later I realized he was right--although I think Holland is called The Netherlands now--since the Betties are Dutch, not Danish. I personally get Dutch and Danish mixed up all the time, but I just thought I'd let you (the moderator) know that they're from the Netherlands, not Denmark.

I've been looking for Palomine and Log 22 for the longest time. I thought Music Millennium would probably have them, but they only have Attagirl and Bare Stripped Naked (which, of course, I've bought).

Any help is appreciated. I want Palomine so badly it almost hurts.

EDIT: Sorry: it seems that besides the moderator, I'm the only member. And she lives in Denmark. Sorry. Well, I'll keep it up here anyway just in case someone from PDX does decide to start posting here.

I've only been into the Betties since about 2002... I found out about them via an interview (or something) I read online with Janeane Garofalo, whom I'm a huge fan of, and who said they're her favorite band. (Not sure if they still are--the interview was from like 1995) So I checked them out and holy crap are they awesome. They're not my favorite band, but according to my last.fm, they're the band I with the most plays out of all the CDs I have. I love Carol's voice and the instrumentation is very beautiful and rockish and fantastic. So far my favorite track is "Love and Learn" off Bare Stripped Naked. Sometimes the simplest tracks are the best.
