H. SO MUCH FOR THE AFTERGLOW
H1. What's the name of the secret track at the end of So Much for the Afterglow?
It's called "Hating You for Christmas".
H2. It says in the liner notes for SMFTA, "This record is dedicated to
the memory of Brent Fusco (1969-1996)". Who was Brent Fusco?
Brent was one of Everclear's earliest proponents and biggest fans. He started the first
Everclear fan web site, Nehalem,
in the fall of 1995. It soon became the "officially-endorsed" Everclear site. In
January of 1996, Brent started the White Lightning
mailing list, a meeting place for Everclear fans of all kinds.
In October of 1996, Brent passed away suddenly, suffering a seizure while
at his apartment in Fayetteville, Arkansas. He was 27. Only with his loss were others made aware
of the contributions that Brent was making for the Everclear community.
In many ways, his presence is still felt throughout the Everclear community.
Nehalem still rests in the state he last left it, standing as a monument to the
Sparkle and Fade era. He may no longer be with us, but his spirit and his love for
music live on.
H3. In "Why I Don't Believe in God", Art mentions Edgar Cayce. Who was he?
From an Edgar Cayce web page:
"Considered by many to be the greatest psychic of the 20th Century, Edgar
Cayce was born on March 18, 1877 in Hopkinsville, Kentucky and died on
January 3, 1945 in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
From 1901, when he was 24, until his death he give over 14,000 'readings',
many of which were transcribed by a stenogropher and are available for
research. The transcripts of his 'readings' consist of one of the largest and
most impressive records of intuitive information. Although most of this
information deals with health problems, other topics were covered."
H4. At the beginning of "One Hit Wonder", what are the words
spoken in the background?
That would be "bigger, badder, better than you" repeated four times.
