Addendum to my last post

Uh, I don’t remember clicking the quote format.

Addendum to last night’s post
Apparently Courtney’s twitter is full of magnanimity over the hall of famejam. So pretend I wrote “piss off Gene Simmons” unless he too is wiping tears from his eyes.

grungebook:

coslive:

The surviving members of Nirvana will be fronted by St. Vincent, Lorde, Kim Gordon, and Joan Jett during tonight’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. Read more.

Not sure if this is true, but it would be pretty crazy. (Yet still no PJ Harvey!)

Man, this is a brilliant way to confirm nirvanas anti macho subversiveness and piss off Courtney Love at the same time.

On the 9th of April, 1994, following their triumphant performance at the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Virginia (which Chelsea Clinton could not attend because she had ballet lessons), the members of the popular music group Pearl Jam were invited to the White House to meet the then-President of the United States, Bill Clinton. Mudhoney (a less popular Seattle “grunge” act who were touring with Pearl Jam at the time) were not invited. Nevertheless, as firm believers in “coattail riding,” the members of Mudhoney went along anyway. This brazen act of near trespass prompted President Clinton to ask Pearl Jam’s singer, Eddie Vedder, “Now, who are these Mudhonies, and are they popular with the MTV?” What follows is an account of the two bands’ visit to the White House by Mark Arm, the then-vocalist of Mudhoney. (And just so you know, in term of dramatis personae, Matt is Mudhoney’s bassist, Dan is their drummer and Steve the guitarist).

We were supposed to meet Pearl Jam at their hotel at 10:00 a.m. Realizing we didn’t have much time, I ran down to Matt and Dan’s room for some wake’n’bake, so to speak. On my way out the door I could have sworn I heard Steve mutter, “Fuckin’ stoners! I hated ‘em in high school and I hate ‘em now.” After that, we hooked up with the guys in “P.J.” (as we call them) - all except Dave, their apolitical drummer, and Eddie, who had spent the night at Ian Mackaye’s house. Then we all piled into a van for the hungover hell ride to the White House.

Unfortunately, every time I tried to catch some Zs during the brief van ride, the driver would announce something idiotic over the brutally loud P.A. “OVER HERE ON YOUR RIGHT IS WHAT YOU CALL A SOUNDWALL YA SEE, THERE’S HOUSES OVER THERE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THAT GREAT BIG WALL YA CAN’T SEE ‘EM BUT THEY’RE THERE. AND THAT WALL, THE SOUNDWALL, KEEPS THE FREEWAY NOISE FROM GITTIN’ OVER THERE TO THEM HOUSES WHERE PEOPLE LIVE, SO THOSE FOLKS DON’T HEAR ALL THIS FREEWAY NOISE. THAT’S WHY THEY CALL IT A SOUNDWALL.” I shit you not.

The opening of the '94 Grand Royal piece about Pearl Jam and Mudhoney meeting President Clinton (ha, I thought it was for Addicted To Noise or some shit). Probably more of a transcript than an essay, but nonetheless, Arm’s use of “I shit you not” was very influential to me.

20 Years Ago Today: On April 9, 1994—the day after Kurt Cobain’s body was foundPearl Jam met President Clinton in the Oval Office. You can read all about the encounter in my book Everybody Loves Our Town: An Oral History of Grunge.

I’ve posted the first two photos before, but the third—
in which Clinton shows off his The Thinker sculpture to Pearl Jam and the band’s political and community advisor, John Hoyt—has never been published.

STONE GOSSARD WORE SHORTS & SANDALS TO THE WHITE HOUSE

Mark or Steve from Mudhoney wrote an essay about this day, which I read online many years ago. It was the first time I ever saw the phrase “I shit you not.” I have done my part to keep it alive ever since.

The Manthony’s TunaMac Superblast

Ingredients: Albacore tuna, macaroni & cheese, the bottom of a bag of Tostitos from this weekend, sriracha, salt, pepper.

GodDAMN Anthony, you fucking genius. Sometimes it’s just cloves, tom collins mix and a pie crust, sometimes it’s a patented space-age moon waffle. This was the latter, omg. So good. Perfect meal to go out on.

The Manthony’s TunaMac!

ingredients: albacore tuna, macaroni & cheese, salt, pepper, chili pepper.

Our penultimate “while the cat’s away, the mouse will eat crap and play with Spotify” post. Albacore tuna is currently my favorite meat to scramble into a package of mac & cheese. Leila was all “wtf” when I told her but, yo, Tuna Mac & Cheese is like a real thing. Google it.

The Ad Libs, “Kicked Around”

I know this sounds like it’s been mashed up with a Young Marble Giants remix, but this is the actual arrangement on the B-side to the Ad Libs’ one-hit "The Boy From New York City" from 1965. Amazing.
