Has fall got you thinking about leaves, school, blah, blah, blah? Have you reached a stage in life where the word test is always preceded by urine, blood alcohol, or pregnancy? If so, heres a multiple-choice blast from the past. A Sunset Rubdown is which of the following? (a) Where Johnny Drama and Turtle go for a happy ending massage. (b) A band that toured third on the bill with Bang Tango and Faster Pussycat in 1987 (and yes, typing Bang Tango into Wikipedia makes it laugh at you). (c) The quintillionth side project of Wolf Parades Spencer Krug, whose formula for Random Spirit Lover (Jagjaguwar, 2007) is Pogues + Fems x Modest Mouse2 = absolutely ingenious. P.S. If you answered anything but C, youve probably failed one or more of the aforementioned tests. With Magic Weapon and Johnny & the Moon.
