Your music is like a sleeping pill to me

Named after the above taunt hurled at us by a disgruntled Dutch audience member, our alter ego Sleeping Pill debuted on this date 22 years ago, on a bill with Mofungo and Chain Gang at CBGB.  Our set debuted the as-yet untitled new songs “Sudden Organ” and “Double Dare,” the latter eventually ending up as the B-side of “Big Day Coming.”  In other news of the day, a pair of guest drummers gave Georgia a breather on January 31:  John Convertino played “Little Black Egg” (sung by Georgia and Joey Burns) in St. Louis last year, and Todd Barry handled “Jeepster” during 2007’s Super Bowl week in Miami with his customary aplomb.
