(JP: 'This is Mudhoney and part of the soundtrack of the film 'Singles', which I have not seen and frankly don't intend to see, to be perfectly honest with you. But does Mark Arm really shout "Go it, Stevie!" in the course of this? I suspect he does.')
(JP: 'As long as they continue to retain their nice sense of irony, I shall continue to love 'em.')
