robyn seemed rather relaxed and the electric segement, in particular,
was inspired. he appeared to really enjoy playing with sebadoh and, in
return, jason loewenstein appeared to really appreciate playing with
robyn -- he looked as if he was fulfilling a life-long dream.

yes, a recording was made. interested parties know where to inquire.

woj "zzzzzzzzzz" the wojster.

The highlight of the Lips show came toward the end, when Coyne sang "Over the Rainbow" -- introduced as "Cornelius' favorite song" -- with ICU's Oiwa on theremin, and followed it with a send-up of "What a Wonderful World" with Hitchcock and Barlow. They were goofing around, sure, but at least it felt spontaneous and alive.
