“I just wanted to say thanks-a-million to Jean Smith and David Lester for responding to my comments A N D sending a [FaceBook] friend request. For those unfamiliar, Smith and Lester form the inimitable and fearless duo Mecca Normal (BC, Canada). They’re now inching toward their 35th year of activity, and continue to repudiate any form of guile that would rescind the raw rudiments of their real-time rock ‘n’ roll; the kind of harbingers of ‘Riot Grrrl’ that make Nirvana’s In Utero, sound like 5 Seconds Of Summer.
On a personal note, after reading about them in Trouser Press, this was the first song I ever heard, and remains among my favorites. Smith is also a noted artist and author, Lester also a respected graphic artist, nominated for his work.
— feeling thankful.” – Doran Scott, PEI
