(Minneapolis, MN) I Am A Fossil

by Tom Bozzo

Oh, the humanity.

Suzanne led me into a big record shop in the uptown neighborhood, where the 'modern rock' section alone was the size of about three Madison B-Side Records.

Suzanne's selection — a used copy of Everything But the Girl's "Idlewild" (1988), was in modern rock.

I found my selection, the Rhino Records extended reissue of Echo and the Bunnymen's "Porcupine" (1983), in 'classic rock.' In fact, the whole frickin' early eighties alt-rock catalogue seemed to be in classic rock — except (incongruously) Cocteau Twins: formed in 1980, first album released 1982.

Note to Jeremy: "Could You Be The One" is my favorite Hüsker Dü song, too. Consistent with the title of the post, my copy is on a 7" vinyl single.
