I'm not sure where to put this, so this thread seems like a decent bet. Thanks to the robots of Spotify, just learned that the Uncle Wiggly-related Fly Ashtray had a new album as recently as 2012, and it turns out to be pretty good.

Saw a few minutes the Friends episode with Jon Lovitz as a stoned restaurateur last nite. Anyone ever seen him and Wm. Berger in the same room together?

So this thread isn’t about Uncle Wiggly’s Hot Shoes Blues Band? https://open.spotify.com/album/6L11w9CFt0LJgkliAItWsL?si=C-Rg2mFxSjKp1IpPDs6HJA

farfetchedness is a masterpiece, an utter masterpiece that deserves a Loveless-size rep
