I guess this is one of the first “indie” songs I really got into. The term indie, however, was unknown to me for years. In Colorado we just called it alternative.
The unforgettable Spike Jonze, Jason Lee, redefining-of-cool video had a whole lot to do with my obsession with this catchy feedback rock classic. It was released on the album Dirty, which I'd probably read about in Sassy magazine, had originally featured genuinely dirty pictures of plushies doing their thing. (The people photographed were actually performance artists Bob Flanagan and Sherry Rose). Imagine my disappointment when the CD I bought from Wal Mart featured no such dirtiness. You just can't pull one over on those huge corporation guys.
