mp3: Big Troubles "Sick Days"

My Tummy Hurts
Big Troubles "Sick Days" sounds like a sick day. Your head hurts, your mom is forcing Robitussin down your throat, while simultaneously making you drink flat Coca Cola and pressuring your into taking an oatmeal bath. (Side note: Was I the only one forced to bath in oatmeal?) Anyway, Ian and Alex apparently know this sentiment all too well, as the boys have crafted a song as uncompromisingly slacker, sedated and washed out as any sick day I've ever had, and I've had my fair share. Sort of sounds like two teenage kids who couldn't afford weed decided they should just go steal Coricidin from the Grand Union and make an afternoon out of while Mom and Dad were at work.

Big Troubles- Sick Days

only when I had the chicken pox did I have to take an oatmeal bath...I eventually ate my way out and regurgitated Quaker Oats for weeks

an oatmeal bath sounds delicious.

I like it. It reminds me of something really awesome like Joy Division and/or Guided by Voices.

i too was forced to take an oatmeal bath by mother when i had the chix pox. the weirdest part was it wasn't in our tub. our bathroom was being worked on at the time so we had to use our neighbors, the Quigleys, while they were out of town. to this day i dont think they know about it...
