Listening Post



You can tell a lot about a person by whether or not he or she loves American Music Club or even knows who they are. As far as I'm concerned, AMC's 1993 album Mercury is one of the best of the 90s.

Here's something from their latest release, The Golden Age. This is All the Lost Souls Welcome You to San Francisco. The video stars perennial go-to weirdo Grace Zabriskie (Laura Palmer's mom in Twin Peaks).

Grace Zabriskie, more importantly, George Costanza's girlfriend Susan's booze-addled mom on "Seinfeld."

Absolutely, yes. Check out Sunshine Club's "Visit To A Small Planet" (around the time "San Francisco" came out) - an excellent CD influenced by AMC.
