“….And the thing is,” McCaughan said, referring to the Seattle young pups who’d bashed out a really decent sunnyindierock opening set, “they’re gonna wake up tomorrow and go ‘yahhh! Another gig!’ And we’re gonna wake up tomorrow and go ‘ohhh, maaan, we HURT.”
Yeah, Superchunk’s yet another batch of reunionized indie rockers to get back on the campaign trail.
But that’s wayyyy cool. Particularly if you’re trawling for a new husband…for Superchunk command a most-respectful sea of dudes in their audience.
But annnnyyyyway. Their energy was great, the songs crunched, and Mac, bassist Laura Ballance (his co-founder in Merge Records) , guitarist Jim Wilbur and basher Jon Wurster pounded out a really, really decent set of young and old, much to the nodding heads and GBV-t-shirt-wearing smiling crowd. “Digging For Something” and “My Gap Feels Weird” from the veryquitegood new platter Majesty Shredding bounced, while “Everything at Once” politely raged. And did “The First Part”, “Let it Go”, ”Punch Me Harder” and “Slack Motherfucker” actually sound a bit better now than then? Whatever. They had me at their encore – a cover of Sebadoh’s “Brand New Love”.
Yer Majesties, shredding.
