a song about eric's trip.



some of you may have heard of a band from nyc called
run on.

they're on matador and i believe their new album is called
_start packing_.

there's a song on it called
"xmas trip".

it was inspired by canadians who come down to ny to sell
xmas trees, and by eric's trip.  rick brown from run on
saw them at cbgbs in nyc and fell in love with the band.

the song has lyrics like "drove down from st. john" 
(either he got the city wrong or he's using a little
 indirection -- he doesn't actually refer to the band
 although he name-checks julie).

there's a line in it something like 
"wore out your tape of _daydream nation_".

anyways, check out their record, it's pretty good.
