Getting caught up on all my “thanks for stuff”:
•First off, thanks to Sue in North Carolina for the Sugar Hill CD’s further expanding my traditional country/folk/roots horizon.
•Next up, Stephen in Elmhurst , Ill. for the collection (Sunburst Finish – Live! In The Air Age – Modern Music) of Be Bop Deluxe CD’s. I particularly like this quote about BeBop Deluxe’s Bill Nelson:
In Be Bop Deluxe, Nelson proved himself one of the most technically accomplished British guitarists of the 70s. Even Julian Cope, ex-Teardrop Explodes leader now turned eccentric musicologist, recently commented, â€œSure, Nelsonâ€™s muse was mightily â€˜effectedâ€™ by David Bowie, but this angular harlequin was more the Ziggy Stardust character than Bowie himself…â€
•Lastly I want to thank Patrick from Music Hates You for the black T (my first ever black T…imagine that) and the pre-release CD. Patrick notes that Music Hates You plays “desperate angry music for desperate angry times.”
These guys are really good.
