the swoons.

I'm starting a band. We will be a clean-cut, well-groomed, Pepsodent-smiles easy listening lounge combo positioned sonically somewhere between Bing Crosby and The Archies, and we will be called The Swoons because we will only do Swans covers. I think our first cover will be "New Mind." Toodly organ intro, kicky snare drum, side-step-finger-snap-head-bob smiling singer in narrow-lapeled navy blue suit: "The sex in your soul will damn you to hell! Yeah! Damn you to hell. When he calls my number I will be there. Let the light shine in, damn you to hell! Let the light shine in, damn you to hell! Let the light shine in, damn you to hell!" I think we're going to be big.

Hmmm. I hadn't thought about go-go dancers. They would have to be very restrained, maintain an open-mouthed smile and not pull any funny moves. No body makeup or anything like that. Hula hoops maybe. If you feel you can keep it "Annette Funicello" rather than "Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black" then you're in for a trial basis.

i'll join briefly, swearing and spending all our profits on drugs despite contributing nothing, before fucking everyone in the band and leaving, never to resurface until they are writing the retrospective biography
