Just because it’s been nearly two weeks since I’ve posted an update on the hunt for yo la tengo, don’t think we’ve given up the search. As you’re no doubt aware, in this the 50th anniversary of the Mets’ first season, we are attempting to pinpoint the precise moment that Richie Ashburn hollered “yo la tengo” and collided with Frank Thomas. Ashburn, Thomas and Elio Chacon have not been in the lineup together since April 28.
Instead, I’ll mention Occupy This Album, which includes a contribution from Georgia, James and me, in collaboration with the Lost City Rumblers–Rick Brown, Sue Garner, Willie Klein and Chris Nelson. Its release date is May 15, but you can order it now.
