  1. I haven’t listened yet, but I just read FE’s linked article. I was amused at “Better Alone Together,” a song about Alex Chilton and Lesa Aldridge. “Better Alone” would be a better title. Or “Frankenstein Meets Wolfman.” It’s funny how some younger people romanticize them and that whole milieu. It was sordid as fuck.
