A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Yé-yé (French pronunciation: ​[jeje]) was a style of pop music that emerged from France, Italy, Spain and Portugal in the early 1960s. The term "yé-yé" was derived from the English term "yeah! yeah!", popularized by British beat music bands such as the Beatles. The style expanded worldwide, due to the success of figures such as the French singer-songwriters Serge Gainsbourg and Françoise Hardy. [Wikipedia]

This is a very different TVP version than i have heard, I know where "Syd Barret Lives" The album version gives an address at the end of the song.. which turns out to be in Munich, but that was not Syd's real address..

I lived in an apartment building on Commonwealth Avenue in Boston where Aerosmith had lived years before when they had no money. Anybody else?
     Thu. 7/13/17 11:08am tadpoles:

@jt.. You're probably thinking of a live version and if it was Munich it was probably a German tour.

TVPs once opened for Pink Floyd and gave out Syd's real address at the end of the song which enraged David Gilmour and he kicked them off the tour.
  Thu. 7/13/17 11:08am Sam:

I saw Michel LeGrand in a tiny little club in Paris. His son was there too, who's also an amazing musician. What a great night. I drank a whiskey that was older than I was. Later I and ended up at the urinal right next to Michel LeGrand's son and said made a little small talk.

@Kev I had a bunch through the record store-- Peter Wolf, Andy Pratt, and Damon Krukowski were all regulars, plus memorable appearances by Courtney Love and DJ Kool Herc. Then there was the time Ron Jeremy scorned me in front of an auditorium full of people, and the time I was in St. Vincent's apartment (though I can't remember if I met her, and it kills me).

Brushes w/ Fame dept. : I knew a guy who, over the years, happened to live on three different streets in three different cities where Leonard Cohen had also lived. Parquet Courts had a 'band' photo done in my stairwell, but I had only realized that by looking for their tour dates. I once owned a short that Arlo Guthrie had owned. I eventually gave it away. Heavy aura. Wish I still had that shirt.

The instruments were fantastic! Pure happiness! Dunno how many compositions tho. There is a book that goes w/ the exhibition--it was organized by the Denver Museum of Art first, and it's well done. By the way, MM told me Eno showed them the Sharpie-dollar thing first--he was making ENO dollars, so they stared making DEVO dollars. Ha!

Thanks for your nice mix today Trouble.
