Since the thrilling, almost-like-a-dream rocket launch time of their first record,they've been on stages that are bigger than the whole clubs they used to play in. We even saw them on the big screen as the band playing when that Grade A Lunkhead Vince Vaughn stood up the fetching Jennifer Aniston in The Break Up. (What in god's name was he thinking?--oh yeah, he's a lunkhead...)With so much water under the bridge, and so much time passed, it's not only easy to take what the 97's are doing for granted, but easy to forget how radical and riotous they were at the time. They perfected a template and have had no real relevant usurpers to their throne.
