Pavement's Stephen Malkmus explains the "oysters and dry Lancer's" lyric from "Shady Lane."
When I was a kid, the Lancer's commercials used to freak me out. Lancer's was like swingers' wine: It came in this cheap, green bottle that looked like a bad Spanish terracotta knockoff. They would advertise it on TV like you were going to get laid if you drank Lancer's. Maybe it was a California thing -- they've got a lot of cheap grapes in Stockton. I'd actually like to get a discussion group going about Lancer's.
OK. But what I really wanna know: Why "Swingin' nachos like you just don’t care" in "Unfair"?

Other notes of interest: Liz Phair, Violent Femmes and Nirvana.

And Michael Stipe takes some venom out of a lyric I always found cruel, "A simple prop to occupy my time."
