"Lay it on the Line" -- my favorite Partridge Family track.... March 1972 -- I was up in the blue seats at Madison Square Garden at a riotous (of screaming 14-year-old girls) David Cassidy concert. Opening act = Tony Orlando and Dawn. My first time at a concert and my first time to MSG.

Nah, the Hip arent as good as Ween, but theyre good - Gord was an excellent front-man. And surprisingly, he was a huge GBV fan, and has covered them!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 11/27/17 9:22am pantz:

Gord died a month ago and people are still talking about him. I'm not sure Bowie got as much buzz after he died. The Hip were a thing, but North of the border.

Feeling good, mostly (sore throat). I don't feel very cyber-y, though. Sitting down and watching QVC for a while should fix that right up.

Call me crazy, but I actually kind of loved the covers album Danzig put out a couple years back. Some of it was just dumb hard rock covers, but the oldies he does are pretty great, and he opens with a couple of obscure biker movie themes which are legitimately fantastic.

Joe, this has been an outstanding show, even by your normally sky-high standard.

Thanks so much, Uncle Michael! @Oscar: I like the Senor Coconut album of Kraftwerk covers even though it's silly.

love this orbison with it's chord progressions - it's like a cheery 'it's over'

Senior Coconut's "Showroom Dummies" outshines the original!

sounds of mods working the cowsills vibe very hard.

@RW, that's Paula Frazer, who did a fine vocal on Cornershop's "Good to Be on the Road Back Home Again." Haunting voice.

Oh man, I think I have this on some comp or another (maybe one of the Rhino DIY albums?). You could make a pretty great album of just fake Elvis Costellos.

@Glenn: CN Tower was an amazing single. They did a nice live set once on CFNY that i still own the cassette of. Syrinx were good - didn't they provide the theme to a CTV show?

From the heart of Acadie, from whence those who would be called Cajuns were expelled in 1755 ( Le Grand Dérangement), and in their expulsion created an entirely original culture out in the swamps and bayous, this is goodbye for now, Joe, and McGaskoes. Later.
