I don't think Calvin Johnson knows how to make bad music. I like pretty much everything thing he's done. If anyone likes Built to Spill, The Halo Benders don't disappoint. I guess Jamboree is my favorite Beat Happening album.

Awesome band, and even better label. I've got 3 of their albums.. the self titled, which is my favorite, Jamboree, and Black Candy. love 'em all. Calvin Johnson's twee factor is set to kill.

Anyone read Our Band Could Be Your Life by Michael Azzerrad?
Calvin comes across as being quite the interesting individual.

Outstanding band, I only had You Turn Me On for a while, but downloaded the rest today. Teenage Caveman is a great song.
