Even with boosters such as Paul Westerberg, Guided By Voices, and T-Bone Burnett, this DC native remains very much a cult figure after three decades in the business. Power pop's gone and in out of style enough times since then to warrant a re-examination of his catalog, but not to the extent that it's lifted him up to the level of his most famous fans. Just be thankful that he still hasn't thrown in the towel and that you have another chance to become a booster yourself. With Wormburner and Ben Wise.
