Tacoma's Got Coal Mines, Too

A patio debate over country savior/faker Neko Case

G: It's also slicker, though. As I said, I pretty much like this album. I really like "Margaret Vs. Pauline," especially the part about how the worst thing that ever happened to Pauline was when she left a sweater on a train, but the other girl lost three fingers in a cannery.

M: That's a great lyric! I don't know what most of these songs are about, maybe she doesn't either, but a lot of phrases and images stick with me: "parking-lot eyes," "my nightgown sweeps the pavement clean," "I'm holding out for that teenage feeling," "hey there, there's such dandy wolves 'round town tonight."

G: Is it "dandy wolves"? I thought it was deadly wolves.

M: Maybe it's deadly.

G: Hmm.

M: You really should quit smoking.

G: I know.
