This is as much a study in sociology, as it is a document of great music staring bias and fear in the face in 1964 Erie, PA.

(This is a fun mix that was inspired by track twenty.) Please to enjoy...

Track 10 from Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga
Length: 00:02:56
Year: 2007
Track Description:
Hailing from Austin, TX. The band with the largest setup was told to perform first. This was great for Spoon because they had a gig at Vilipiano's in an hour. It is right by the airport, you know? Chrisi Thompkins had a four-minute crush on Britt Daniels, but had an inherited fear of all things Texan from her mother. Miss Thompkins would fall in and out of love several time during the rest of the famed talent show.

It is a historical shame that no audio recordings exist of this night's performances, but these New Yorkers may have played the best song of the evening. (Of course this is all subjective.)

What the film failed to show was the awe and confusion by the last talent show band, Brooklyn's own TV on the Radio. As they entered the stage after The Oneders, jaws dropped, hearts fluttered, but no one knew what to make of this bearded lot. They received a "Not Terrible" nod. Few people know that, in fact, Kyp Malone was Faye's last "honestly good and kissed" kiss. Now you know.
