"Flood": A story based on "Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands" by Bob Dylan, as suggested by musician Patrick Fleming of The Posion Control Center (32/100)




[I couldn't find a video, unless you want
to see some dickhead covering it in their
mom and dad's living room (trust me, you
don't). Besides, if you have never heard Bob
Dylan you either don't give a shit or you
have no interest in music, in which case,
you're in the wrong place.]


Bob Dylan is the dad of that guy from the Wallflowers.

Patrick Fleming is one of the guitarist/vocalists for the Iowan band The Poison Control Center. The first time I saw them, Patrick did the splits for the majority of the first song, then did a solo on his back with his legs in the air. He then went out into the crowd, smoked someone's cigarette before putting it out, drank someone's beer before throwing it down, and then kissed this meathead dude right on the lips. It was rad as hell. Also, the band has a great combination of pop hooks and weirdo guitar freakouts. They're the band I'd listen to most if I took a bunch of pills and figured a Frank Zappa album might kill me. But, since I don't take pills, I'll have to settle for enjoying the band in an unaltered state of pop rock bliss. Flip through their discography page and pick something to buy!

"Make Love a Star"

"Torpedoes On Tuesday"

"Shot In the Face"
