If 8 was 9

Inexplicably, nothing we’ve done on this day over the years is as memorable as all three of these shows that I didn’t get around to mentioning in yesterday’s all things Clean post.  1991: Running late in Dortmund on our tour with Eleventh Dream Day.  Past curfew, with the audience requesting more music, we’re allowed to continue, so long as we play acoustically, which we do for another four songs.  1995: Our English tour with Stereolab concludes in London.  When it is discovered that Sebadoh are booked to play London the same night, the two shows join forces.   With Quickspace on the bill as well, our set is but a half hour, comprised in its entirety of a medley of “From a Motel 6” and “Blue Line Swinger.”  2011: Live at Leeds, the spinner lands on Sitcom Theater, and we discover that though it appears on English cable tv, not everyone is as au courant with Judge Judy as we are.  Nevertheless, Georgia’s performance as Robert Williams and James’s as John Lydon win plaudits from the critics.
