Fiction & False Unicorn

The Hold Steady

I really wasn’t into these guys when I got their album Boys and Girls in America when it came out and everyone was going crazy over it. But, since my friend George started to get me into Springsteen, when I went back to it recently, I started loving it.

Here’s a live version from Letterman of the opening song Stuck Between Stations, and I was thrilled to see the front man looks like a mix of Woody Allen, Randy Newman, and Michael Moore. And the pianist is a dead ringer for the front man from the Fabulous Thunderbirds (and also George and I’s friend Michael Boumenot).

Here’s the video for the second song on the album, Chips Ahoy!
