Weekend – “Monday Morning/Monongah, WV”

A seven-minute earful of feedback goes a long way towards making a Monday morning palatable.

Let’s run through the Weekend-named bands, so we’re all on the same page:

1. Weekend (this video): shoegaze trio from San Francisco;
2. Weekend: short-lived Welsh band formed by Young Marble Giants’ Alison Statton;
3. The Weekend: London, Ontario pop band, responsible for one of the best albums of 2000 (we’ll hit you with one of their videos later this week);
4. The Weeknd: Toronto R&B singer Abel Tesfaye;
5. Weekends: Baltimore art-rock two-piece;
6: Vampire Weekend: pretentious wankers.

    3+4 are the same act idiots.

  2. They’re not, actually, but nice try! The Weekend (#3) was a four-piece band, led by singer Andrea Wasse (who still plays solo). We have all their CDs at TM headquarters! They ceased operations back in 2005.
