A late night gathering for non serious palaver that does not speak of that night’s show. Posting a spoiler will get you brollywhacked. You don’t want that to happen to you. It's a fate worse than a fate worse than death.

SOME JINGLE JANGLE MORNING
Mary Lou Lord started her career playing acoustic guitar and singing in Boston subway stations and Harvard Square in Cambridge. Some Jingle Jangle Morning (1993) is from her first 45. It’s a song written about/to Kurt Cobain (one of several in the MLL catalog) — a not insignificant factor in the Courtney Love feud that played out in the music press and AOL message boards during the 90’s (which flared up again a few years back).
As difficult as it was for a time to hear over the din of Mary Lou Lord’s notoriety as the cherubic face on Courtney Love’s dartboard (thanks to a brief but subsequently well-publicized pre-Love love affair with Kurt Cobain), the Boston busker renders the infamy irrelevant on her self-titled Kill Rock Stars mini-album, an affecting acoustic gem that is alternately sad, funny, malicious and tender.

My friends are all I have now
But they're so far away
They all moved out of Seattle and back to L.A.
And they ask me how I'm doing
And I ask them if they've seen you
But no one sees much of anyone these days
Now LSD and Ecstasy don't help me
And my dance with Mr. Brownstone got too rough
Will you wake me without warning
Some jingle jangle morning
We'll fly away to heaven on a star
‘Some Jingle Jangle Morning’ (Live 1998)
I’ve seen Mary Lou Lord’s music described as Anti-Folk. What is that? She sings, she plays guitar!
The next two are from Mary Lou Lord’s mini-album on Kill Rock Stars (Olympia, WA).
Mary Lou Lord shoots light-years ahead of both the cassette and the 45. Using a whispery soprano that can only paraphrase the harsher emotions in the lyrics and a guitar captured in all her rhythmic imperfection, Lord mixes and matches an exquisite selection of songs… Trouser Press
‘He’d Be a Diamond’ (1995)
Next one is a Daniel Johnston cover (the bonus is one too). Daniel Johnston is an “outsider” musician from Austin. I’ve had a hard time getting into his recordings although he’s written some beautiful songs — I just prefer when other folks perform ‘em.
‘Speeding Motorcycle’ (1995)
BONUS: Spectrum ‘True Love Will Find You in the End’ (1992)
