not sure if Urusei Yatsura ever wrote a song about Calvin Johnson, tends to be things about spaceships, glitter, and plastic ashtrays…September 28, 2001 at 11:09 am #67644
John-that song about Calvin Johnson has lyrics like "he`s the greatest dancer in the USA;he has his own label;and it starts with K;and he`s really cool and he`s really hip".
Javro-ok I`ll stop with the trivia,the answer to the Ned`s Atomic Dustbin question is Mogwai;Stuart and Dominic met each other at a Ned`s show.September 28, 2001 at 9:27 pm #67645
