Stuff Your 'Cool' Uncle Likes

"Paperhouse" by Can

Can? Aw, holy shit! I saw those cats back in '73. No, '71. I dunno, before you were born, your Mom probably remembers. I had hair down to here, kiddo! No shit. I was backpacking through Europe, saw them play for free in Stockholm. I mean, they weren't playing for free, I think they sold tickets somewhere, but nobody cared back then, that's just the way it was.

Hey sport, you goin' back towards the fridge? No, you don't need a...yeah, they're twist-offs. You da man, dog. What, people say 'dog' still, I just heard it on TV. Hey, mute that while you're up, will ya? Can't find the...okay, cool. So Can, they were German and...aww, this part kicks ass, turn it up! Nah, my old lady's cool, don't worry about it. Oh yeah, so I'm in the front row, and they get to this part here, and I guess the dude next to me thinks the Chinese guy's saying, "You just don't care 'bout your balls," 'cause he looks real sad all of a sudden and starts yelling, "I do! I do care about my balls, Danno Suzuki!" It was hilarious. I don't know kiddo, I didn't ask, but he was bogarting, whatever it was. Yeah, Suzuki was the Chinese guy. Asian, sorry. The other guy that came later and him, that's what that band you like named themselves... yeah, The Mooney Suzuki. That Paul Mooney could wail, man. See, I told ya you'd dig this shit! Hey, just don't tell your Mom about that stuff on my Frisbee, okay? Cool.

I'm no one's cool uncle, but I got into Can about a year or so ago when a friend played the "Soundtracks" album for me. "Mother Sky" is probably my favorite track by them, it's minimalist, repetitive, and about 14 minutes long. Perfect for zoning out to.

Yeah, Your 'Cool' Uncle actually has some pretty good taste in music...if you can get past all his rambly stories about the good old days and his rec room that smells like Spencer Gifts.
