Certain Songs #1156: The Miss Alans – “The Shiny Unfeeling”

Album: Smack The Horse
Year: 1990

I hope I don’t die
I hope I don’t die
I hope I don’t die

Things were not good with The Miss Alans in early 1989.

Sure, Manny had recovered better than anyone could have hoped from being knocked off of his motorcycle by a woman who missed a stop sign on Labor Day weekend 1988 — and I’ll write more in-depth about this when I get to “Angel Death Blues” — but he still had a long way to go. For one thing, there was a hole in his memory on how to play some of the newer songs, and for another one, it wasn’t clear he even wanted to re-learn them.
