Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

and here was i thinking this was a Slade song. still think the Slade version is pretty staggering, though...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/1/17 8:31am ausmanx:

i thought Bruce was a bit disappointing in Sydney this year, Doctor J. it's become The Bruce Springsteen Show, really, if you know what i mean. he's lucky to have van Zandt still there though; that guy's got charisma to burn

Bruce has extended his run on Broadway till summer. Check again for tickets.

I liked this song and I liked The Muppet Show, but not when the two were together.

“One Way Or Another” was the last great Blondie song, in my goddamned opinion

Sometimes trying to place/recall the timing and late crests of song airplay on album stations vs top 40 stations can put a knot in my rock and roll hair.

So, grew up in a Canadian military family. Posted in the 60s to a Base in the middle of nowhere, in the province of New Brunswick---think Maine with with less savoir faire, but generally more teeth per person. Just off-Base was the only, and I mean ONLY, fast food joint for thirty miles in any direction. Called? The Hinky Dinky.

Hi UM:Listening on archive. Tanya Tucker, Not Fade Away. I had seen her at the state fairs a couple times previous to this year. Went to see her in 1979 at a bar somewhere in KCK. She was trying to "crossover" from country to rock or pop. She came out in all red spandex with a rock and roll band - electric guitars and long hair. Not quite what we expected. TNT! Still remember it was fun.
