In an Icky Mettle Moment the Day will Come Following You

Today's minutiae that maybe matters comes to us from that great '90s band sadly buried beneath Pavement, Archers of Loaf, and its pure adrenalin push of a single "Web in Front." It's complete irresistible drive that calls its own motto--"there's a chance that things could get weird"--but not too weird, despite Eric Bachmann's Neil Diamond-esque mumble (not even lyric sites on the internets can figure out all the words), despite the way the second guitar line splits off after the first verse almost to play its own song (it does what Exene did to John Doe, mug him, love him and leave him in the dust), then it all becomes a momentum tumble until the instant. Ten seconds from the end bassist Matt Gentling pulls up and throbs out 3 notes that gives the song one last mighty oomph into ecstasy. Thanks, Matt.
