i was a mazzy star fan from she hangs brightly and love hopes solo work too : hoping to catch her either in the uk or US over next few weeks depending on whether my crazy personal life has settled down or not !
throught i would share this little story ... from the uk but spent a year around 91/92 travelling in the US after graduating , finally landing in the bay area where i lived and worked for several months ... one such job was in a restaurant on fishermans wharf by pier 39 ... one day i was outside the restaurant ( tarantinos ! ) and these two guys about my age wandered by , one of them wearing a mazzy star shirt ... as mazzy were then fairly obscure but ultra-cool and very dear to me i collared them and we got talking ... i think just a few months before leaving the uk id been lucky enough to catch a load of legendary bands live - lush , throwing muses , galaxie 500 , cocteau twins , pale saints etc and during the conversation with the mazzy star t-shirt kid i kind of it talked it up a bit too much and told them id seen mazzy star play in england too ... thats when the one guy turned to the other and said " are you going to tell him ? " and then the mazzy star t-shirt guy said " im hopes brother " !
so i need to se her live if only to redress that wrong !
wasted all day long
