Connecting Magnolia & Sjamboksa

In The Positions track-by-track when Dave talks about Magnolia, he says “I felt outnumbered. I felt wretched and wild. All glory. All trash.” That’s obviously a reference to the lyrics.

As I was just reading that, the “outnumbered” bit reminded me of the opening line of “Sjamboksa.”

Can I just fight for the winning side?

Guess it seems kinda obvious in retrospect, but I never connected the two before…

I have recently come to appriciate Sjamboksa. I have never connected the two before either, as Magnolia is such a torch for The Positions and Sjamboksa kind of hides in the background. I’ll take a deeper dive with you here on this one Matt.
