Civilization is unbearable, but it is less unbearable at the top.

Night time is the right time for a burst water main in Geilston Bay. May, 2010.

    As someone who is quite fond of Sonic Youth, I have to say that "Teenage Riot" makes that entire album worth it. So much so that the mere mention of it has me rushing to open iTunes right now.

    If it was my list, I'd add "Debaser" from Doolittle. Although honestly, your list would make a damn good playlist as it is...

    Your picture doesn't do justice to the burst water main.
    So, you to have problems with your computer. It frustrates me no end. Especially when you can't remember exactly what it was that you had typed in. It never looks right the second time round.

    Me, my favourite of all their tracks, by some margin.
