I’ll admit that I have never spent more than $1 on any S PRCSS record. On the other hand, I’ve never been asked to spend more than $1 on an S PRCSS record. I bought “MNML” for 99 cents while writing this story because Justin Moyer said that they were good. He was not wrong. Thus, when I found two more of their records lingering in a Seattle thrift shop, I had no qualms about laying down some cash in order to buy them. As it turns out, this only requiered $1 a piece. The band’s Frenchkiss label mates, the well loved Les Savy Fav, have a song called “Meet Me in the Dollar Bin.” Could this song be about S PRCSS?
Indeed, it cost less for me to buy all three of these records than it did for me to see S PRCSS perform live last year when they played at The Hosiery. But you know what? It was worth it. “A once in a lifetime experience!” I though. Not so, turns out S PRCSS is playing this weekend in Layne Garrett‘s basement, where I will surely pay to see them again, although it’s unclear how much. Anyway, here’s the info:
