Re: Trust Survivor - Round 8

This has the same rambling, tumbling character of Dr. Luther's Assistant -- was this recorded solo like that song and Ghost Train...? Sounds like it to me. Love it. p.s. just realized that this is a good reason to have such polls, for me, anyway. I stopped "voting" but still look in for co...

Re: Armed Forces Survivor - Results

Well, I find that Accidents sounds worse without all those other songs crowding around it, and that each one that got excised weakened what was left behind. "Our meddling intellect Mis-shapes the beauteous forms of things:— We murder to dissect." Differently put, I get the game, but, reall...

Re: New song ‘Hetty O’Hara Confidential’, July 10, 2020

yes, i mentioned dr. luther in the no flag thread. this and n.f. have the same sort of stumbly self-coordination as exactly that e.p., i'm finding. love it...the right horse indeed.

Re: New song ‘Hetty O’Hara Confidential’, July 10, 2020

speaking of oldies, yes. the spark in this is just fabulous. playing it and noflag videos back to back is downright cinematic. paintings are garish and lyrics are like hot spit...fit together fabulously. Funny, cutting. Yes!!Kill a man with a single stroke!

Re: This Year's Model Survivor - Results

i actually still have a beatles songs list that i used to type out [top ten in red]...it is the list where i added by hand in ink the new songs from Rubber Soul. So we're talking late December 1965/early January 1966. I do remember it being a form of dedication to them, a way to think about them --h...

Re: This Year's Model Survivor - Results

This dismembering of albums, limb from limb. Hmm. Every song that is eliminated makes the remaning song list look worse and worse. This "winner," standing alone, is, for me, full of the grief of the loss of its surroundings. "If I'm gonna go down, you're gonna come with me." With...

Okay, this is the definition of irony. What is the first song out? Exactly the song that North American releases removed in favour of Radio Radio. Now what!! :? :lol:
