I love Fee Waybill! And this allows me to post one of the greatest music videos of all time: Fee and The Tubes performing White Punks on Dope. And more Fee below the fold. And Fee Waybill can still rock.

From the Wiki:
During late Miocene and early Pliocene epochs, one of the largest flood basalts ever to appear on the Earth’s surface engulfed about 163,700 km² (63,000 mile²) of the Pacific Northwest, forming a large igneous province with an estimated volume of 174,300 km³. Eruptions were most vigorous from 17–14 million years ago, when over 99% of the basalt was released. Less extensive eruptions continued from 14–6 million years ago.
Erosion resulting from the Missoula Floods has extensively exposed these lava flows, laying bare many layers of the basalt flows at Wallula Gap, the lower Palouse River, the Columbia River Gorgeand throughout the Channeled Scablands.
I just love our geology. 🙂
This is our daily open thread — rock on!
