U.S.S.A. is Gary Call, Johnny Rabb, and Paul Barker, all of whom used to play in a little band called Ministry, plus Duane Denison, who used to play in a little band called the Jesus Lizard. From what I’m reading they sound about like what you would expect, which is basically the best splitting headache you’ve ever had. Anyway, they’ll be at the Casbah in two weeks. By then, all of my job applications will have been sent off, my dissertation chapters will have been duly updated and polished, and I’ll be ready to blow off some steam.
