Do you have any Dwight Twilley on you, Joe?

Good deal, Joe! I saw Dwight Twilley about a month ago and have had Twilley on the brain since.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51am tim from champaign:

Great set by the way, Joe. I joined in during the Spies.
  Swag For Life Member 9:51am Ralphine:

I just read this interesting tidbit in the NY Times' obituary for Slim Whitman: "Paul McCartney said Mr. Whitman gave him the idea of playing the guitar left-handed."

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:15am tim from champaign:

I got this record when it came out. In retrospect, I think this might be one of the first non Top 40, pure pop records I got into.
Avatar 10:15am Cecile:

I can take them, they just don't move me. When they went pop, there was always something about Patridge's songs that put me off. I'm told the handful of songs I like by them are all written by Colin Moulding. Good to know.

This next tune goes out to Rich Hazelton.

I should revisit them. Thanks to Sgt Pepper's being overplayed and bad radio, I had an allergy to a lot of "classic" Britishness that didn't dissipate until I started doing college radio.
Avatar 10:18am PKNY:

I have the "Mizrab" LP, but I don't remember Gabor's version of "Summer Breeze" was this dope. I'll have to dig that out when I get home.

BTW, there's a track called "Thirteen" on this record that is that heat.

@joe: Anywhere you can find room, my friend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23am tim from champaign:

The early 90s Fantagraphics roster really changed my perspective of art and writing. In recent years, I got back into reading comics because the local library carries just about every graphic novel that comes out.

A mid-show hello , Joe & all. Taurus reporting heah! But it's all bull ( bad rim-shot!). Great Suzanne Vega show in Mad Sq Park last night...but nothin' compared to our present Surface Noise.
Avatar 10:36am Cecile:

this was what we grew up on as kids, not Radio Disney. All those weird little nursery rhymes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36am joe:

@ Tim totally with you tim. I had been involved in the "comics world" for years but there were many artists I did not get into until older and Fantagraphics made it so easy. About two or three years ago I finally found myself appreciating Crumbs work and those Complete Crumb books have been indispensable to me.

Hi Joe, and friends. Really reaching into our collective back pages with SF this week, eh?

@Parq: Always! @Cecile: I wish!

Fantagraphics were so broad in their taste in reissues, weirdos like Fletcher Hanks, oldies like Prince Valiant and Peanuts and of couse Love and Rockets.

Is that Linda chiming in?
  10:49am will:

Is this Paul re-imagining Prince as played by Talking Heads??
  Swag For Life Member 10:49am Ralphine:

If I remember the video for Coming Up rightly, McCartney played all the instruments and was made up to look like Ron Mael on the keyboards.
Avatar 10:50am Dr. Goot:

  Swag For Life Member 10:51am Ralphine:

I think Ringo's hairdyer does a better job than McCartney's.
Avatar 10:51am Joe McG:

Wow, a lot crud on this record. Pop city! I oughta clean it.
Avatar 10:53am Joe McG:

Just pretend the pops are part of the tribal percussion vibe.
Avatar 10:54am Cecile:

hahah, that video is fun. And it probably cost a fortune to make back then...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56am Parq:

Actually, I *did* think the pops were part of the effect. Still working on my first coffee. Looking forward to hearing the story behind that 45, by the way.

Brian, you aren't kidding on how hard it was to find things back in the day. Even in the 80s, I had a huge list of LPs and comics for friends all over the world.

A-Rod is no All-Star fielder, but nobody on the team is as awful a fielder as Eduardo Nunez. Guy couldn't catch a cold.

Not true, he would of caught the baby, but would of thrown it away,
