mp3 - Mr. T Experience

I had to retire my MTX "Nein Danke" t-shirt recently. It was tragic, almost as devastating as the day I had to retire my Sonic Youth orange yarn doll tee. I feel guilty about throwing it away. I imagine it's cold and entangled in a pile of rotting food, used condoms, and jagged can lids. I should have burned it with dignity.

I bought it in Denver in 1996, the year they released Love is Dead, at the Snakepit. It looked like this, except it was green:

At least I still have some of their CDs. I don't listen to them as much as I used to, but yesterday, Love is Dead demanded a play. It was the least I could do.

From the name and cover of the band, I wouldn't have given them a second thought to actually listening to them. But thanks to canowine I listened to the CD and it is an awesome punk rock CD. I really like "Can I do the Thing?".

Happy to be of service, especially to friendly neighborhood nihilists.

I had a very simar experience, except I saw them in Chicago. This pic linked below was the day that my band Pousto finished up in the studio on our album. Circa 2002.

Google led me here because I was trying to fi d a replacement.
