Re: Relatively Insignificant EC Stuff. . .

From a recent Rolling Stone article about Justin Townes Earle: https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-features/justin-townes-earle-songs-harlem-river-blues-tribute-1112709/ As a budding songwriter, Justin was eager for his father’s approval, which didn’t come easily early in Justin’s career. “Stev...

Cool stuff, as usual. This is interesting:

Re: New album Hey Clockface released October 30, 2020

Graham Parker's live double-LP The Parkerilla has an unusual format. He can't stand it, apparently, and it was a 'contractual obligation' LP, but it was actually my introduction to GP and I love it to this day. However, I digress. My point is that it has three live sides, with four songs on each, a...

In later years, the song would also take on a notable change of lyric: In the recorded version the words are “She’s listening in to the Venus Line, she’s picking out names, I hope none of them are mine.” That meaning is clear enough: Whatever mating ritual the TV woman is doing, the singer wants no...
