Thanks for being the musical highlight of a kick-ass 2010. "Everything at Once", and so many others, took me back to the mid-90's again in all the best ways, feelings and excitement and energy I never anticipated experiencing again....

Happy Holidays to you & your family.

Couldn't agree more with Dan the previous poster on his sentiments. Speaking of "Everything at Once," if I had to condense everything I love about Superchunk and music into about 45 seconds (minus the lead guitar work), I believe 2:15-3:00 of that song may just be it. If I ever get around to running the Boston Marathon, I'm saving that 45 seconds to physically propel me over the worst of Heartbreak Hill. The album and tour were both such a needed, welcome and completely unexpected gift of 2010. Thank you all so much for making it happen, and here's to great 2011.

Happened upon your blog for the first time this week. Enjoying reading backwards. Been listening to the Avengers in my workout playlist this week. Always loved their 1983 self-titled album, from CD Presents. "American in Me" and "Corpus Christie" are my favorites. Still remember the thrill of finding it on CD in a music store near where Cosmic Cantina is on Franklin Street in the 1990s. The thrill of that kind of hunt is gone. Thanks.
