Once upon a time I had a decision to make. I was emigrating to the UK and could either fly over and see the Shellac curated All Tomorrow's Parties or I could sail over aboard the QE2. Ended up sailing. (A few years later I found myself sailing back, finding the expatriate life not nearly as romantic as I was hoping. ...Meaning I ran out of money.) Anyway, it seems I now have a chance to play catch up with the release next week of a best-of DVD featuring many of the great shows to date.
To quote Steve Albini, "There are three things in the world that I endorse, Abby Road Studios, Nutter Butter Sandwich Cookies and All Tomorrow's Parties."
