Indie Rock's Don Rickleses Release Their Hello Dummy!

One of the ways in which Shellac fans are like juggalos is that they're so extremely intense about something that just cracks my shit up. And my favorite thing about the band is that the three of them seem to find the situation—a bunch of dudes head-nodding in 7/8 time to a song about baseball—just as hilarious as I do. Chunklet publisher and live-punk-tape enthusiast Henry Owings has edited almost four hours (!) of onstage banter from 17 years of Shellac shows into a 105-minute best-of compilation (!!) that quite rightly leans heavily on Bob Weston's not-giving-a-shit audience Q&As, though Albini is good for a couple of zingers too.
