What a Way to See the Old Girl Go
Vinyl LP pressing. 2017 release. On Volume 6 of Tales from the Grease Trap, Voodoo Doughnut Recordings' series of live archival releases from early '90s Portland, Oregon, garage punk heroes, Dead Moon close down a legendary all-ages club. The night is August 16, 1994. A few songs into an already cathartic set, marked by the themes of an ending epoch and an inevitable changing-of-the-guards, Toody Cole remarks to the crowd, "What a way to see the old girl go!" The old girl is the venue-the black velvet painting-decorated X-Ray Cafe-, which helped spawn the careers of venerated Portland acts such as Quasi, The Dandy Warhols and Elliott Smith.
