Last night I had a dream about the Strokes.
I haven’t listened to the Strokes (by choice) for at least three years. I liked the first record for about two weeks. I remember playing it once on a drive to Vancouver. That’s not the point. The point is, the Strokes mean nothing to me. But last night, there they were in my dream, playing on stage while I ran around a weird party in a field looking for something or someone or… something. I don’t remember all the details, I just remember the Strokes. And someone introducing them as the Strokes. And waking up thinking “WTF? The Strokes?”
Then, this morning I walked into a coffeeshop down the street from my house, and playing overhead was the first soing on the Strokes’ first record. And they’re playing it in it’s entirety.
I liked it better when the Beach Boys were stalking me.
