Today's rip

My only Smithereens album. I don't remember where/why I bought this one. But in 1986 I was working the closing shift at a pizza restaurant and we always put MTV on both big screens when we were cleaning up. Possibly I saw a video of theirs, maybe "Behind the Wall of Sleep."

Great album. Some interesting remarks on it at Wikipedia.

  1. Back in the day, I remember seeing the Smithereens at the old converted theater at Five Points in Raleigh. I remember thinking that the bass player must've thought that he and his instrument were God's gift to women.
