Eels – Last Stop: This Town

September 5, 2008

I recently finished Mark Oliver Everett’s Things the Grandchidren Should Know, which has restored my faith in the rock autobiography.  It encouraged me to root out some old Eels albums and even go buy a new one. Here’s a great track from Electro-Shock Blues.

I also managed to see the brilliant Parallel World’s, Parallel Lives, in which E explores the ideas that made his father one of the most important, yet cruelly under-appreciated, quantum mechanics of the twentieth centure. (I think all the parts are on you tube and there’s a torrent or two floating around.)
