if you had told me back in 96 that there would ever be a song about the NBA’s most stylish crew cut enthusiast, Detlef Schrempf, I would not have believed you. but alas, the universe works in mysterious ways. the new Band of Horses album, Cease to Begin features a song titled, “Detlef Schrempf.” unless “Detlef Schrempf” is the German equivalent of John Smith, it is likely that the song is about the Seattle SuperSonic. You can listen to the track on NPR’s Song of the Day. Soon enough, there will be a song titled, Tony Kukoc.


Also check out “No One’s Gonna Love You” from said album. It contains one of my favorite lines for a chorus.
