This might have been mentioned before on the mailing list, but here's an interesting piece of trivia about Nine Thirty:
On the original LP, the song Georgia East included the lyric "Talk about Negroes"...but this lyric was removed when Nine Thirty was released on CD. 

The rep wrote that the reason for removing it was "social responsibility". 

Pretty cool.

My last few fixes were a little iffy in comparison to my surroundings, so I'd like to ask if anyone could recommend a decent Jandek record for the road... I'll be heading down to Savannah, Ga next month, if that's any help.
