the state of denmark
last night jason @ tvt records invited me to check out a band called the blue van. they're adorable danes ("coming at you straight from copenhagen!") and every single one of them had on the absolute tightest jeans i've ever seen. plus the bass player had on these slick glasses that i thought only architects wore. what's going on in denmark? [hopefully it's not low sperm counts.] the good news is, the band rocks. catchy, sort of retro rock, with a blues influence (they were even channeling muddy waters). it's like somebody put the doors, the kinks, the monkees, and the hives in a blender, sprinkled it with zeppelin, shipped the concoction to scandinavia and poured it into a pair of tight jeans. delicious!
