Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Options

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.

I was kind of hoping for that Monty Python bit where UK goalies wax poetic about the Yangtze River and it's followed by a football-song-style ode to the Yangtze.

Buddy Emmons did a talking-pedal-steel version of "My Buddy" that made it onto one of Monica's (uniformly great) marathon premiums.

Dominick, I was subscribing to "Guitar Player" magazine when the Frampton album was a hit. They had a monthly column on DYI effects boxes, and were deluged with requests for a column on building a voice box. I saw Stevie Wonder using one of those on TV around that time, highlighting his reading of "Papa Was a Rolling Stone".

I actually just found Extricate at a Salvation Army store just about two weeks before MES' death.
It's not too bad. Most of the seminal lineup intact. It's his 'fresh from divorce' from Brix LP, so has an incredibly snotty cover of The Monks I Hate You, for some reason entitled Black Monk Theme.

It could've done with a little honk line, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 2/2/18 2:56pm Jeff Golick:

@Rich: I'm with you on that timeline, tho. That Infotainment record was, I think, their first on Matador, and my thinking at the time was that the label just got there way too late. Meanwhile...two more decades.

Doctor's office this morning. He plays message on his machine from patient seeking appointment today for tough continuing issue, but caller but says, if not, "I will survive." Doctor references the song. That's a firm footprint, there.
