@Granny sounds about right. As long as it is leisurely and sharp objects are left at home.

When wallpaper is properly applied, with sizing, you don't even need a stripper to get it off. So you may curse whoever put it there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 6/10/19 9:48am Andrew Waterloo:

I think wallpaper masks a lot of the undesirable character in plastered ceilings.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/10/19 9:48am Phillippe Bastille:

@Brian I cannot even imagine how difficult putting wallpaper up on the ceiling would be, let alone removing it. And I'm sure scissors are involved in that equation somehow.

...'Ultimately the group left the label and joined Capitol Records, where they recorded songs by Nicky Chinn and Mike Chapman, the writing/producing team behind the UK act The Sweet, and released the album "Farther On" in 1975'...

@randy/nicky: Yes, dead ringer for the Sweet's version from the "Billy Don't Be a Hero" gang.

This'd make a great double header with Stashu's "Jump Off the Bridge" polka!

@Revolution @Joe @nicky cool so the similarity was not a coincidence

wow haven't heard Flamethrower in a long time. One of the black stations in Detroit played this in '81 when it was released cuz it has such a good groove.

@Brian A lot of that scene is still hanging around-- saw Peter Wolf at least once a week in my Cambridge record store days, and once spotted Roger Miller eating a sub on a park bench in Davis Square!

@randy - weren't J Geils pretty huge in Detroit?

I had a crush on Peter Wolf in 6th-7th grade.

@tim I didn't move to Detroit area until '91 but in '81 I moved to Sarnia Ontario which is on the Michigan border about 60 miles from Detroit - that's when I started listening to Detroit radio. Yes I learned that J. Geils Band was really big in Detroit!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/10/19 11:22am radioronan:

Peter Wolf is the og zelig of rocknroll. Still making great records & leaving his rubber soul on the stage.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/10/19 11:22am tim from champaign:

Speaking of sketchy characters in bands, I love the description of Mitch Ryder's band Detroit in the Detroit music oral history Detroit Rock City. The joke around the scene was band tryouts for the band Detroit consisted of opening the the county jail doors.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/10/19 11:23am randyfrommichigan:

@tim that's funny
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/10/19 11:25am The Oscar:

One time at the store a cop rushed in to buy a J Geils record for Wolf to sign, all breathless and starstruck. We joked that he must have been new on the beat-- it's hard *not* to spot Peter Wolf in Harvard Square!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/10/19 11:26am tim from champaign:

@randy - cool! I'm a Michigan dude myself. In high school, there's be a twice annual field trip to Stratford. We'd cross over through Port Huron/Sarnia.

There's a restaurant here in Waterloo that the J. Geil's band used to frequent. The owner used to run a great blues bar

@Oscar does he still hang around there? If so I should make a day trip like I used to and watch for him.

@tim very cool! I've been to Stratford a couple of times back in the 70's/80's when I still lived in Canada.
@Brian my son lives in Ann Arbor going to University of Michigan but it's funny he doesn't care for Ann Arbor. He's in Silicon Valley CA right now for summer internship and loves it there, said that's where he hopes to get a full time job and live.

@melinda To the best of my knowledge-- he was still a regular fixture when I left the store a few years ago. He's pretty unmistakable!

you turn a melancholic morning into something sweetly hopeful. I saw Sachiko Kanenobu at Summer Stage on Saturday. Did I dream it or did she sing: "do you think i'm sexy?" in Japanese?
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 6/10/19 11:46am Joe McG:

Glad you enjoyed that, Trista! Thank you so much, emily. I missed the Saturday show, but I doubt she sang that one! :)

Dare I say that Fairport's Meet On The Ledge is a modernish take on the Circle.
