Re: Farewell, OK 2020: new song!

I like it a lot. Reminds me a lot "Beaten to the Punch" and also "Go Away".

Could he also be referring to Trump? I think so.

I will gladly purchase anyone's extra 7" copy of No Flag with Wish it Would Rain on the B-side. For a reasonable price of course.

Ugly Things - Brinsley Schwarz

Had never heard this before, until it popped up on my FB feed somehow. Not sure how I missed it, but a pleasant surprise. B side to the Other Side of Summer?? Would like to know more about it - who were the musicians? Marc Ribot on guitar? Has an early 90's kitsch to it, but I dig it on some strange...

Re: Elvis sings I WISH IT WOULD RAIN

I can’t find a way to purchase this single. Is it only a part of a bundle?

Re: Elvis sings I WISH IT WOULD RAIN

Love this single. The tone of the guitar and the pure soul he put into it . . . . can't get the song out of my head.

Re: Almost Blue

Good question. Why did Elvis name that album Almost Blue? Imperial Bedroom came after, right?

Anyway, I am reminded of the Chet Baker-ish, Almost Blue - trumpet flourishes on the new album on songs like "I Do (Zula's)" and maybe another track, I forget which. Love it.

Re: The Complete Armed Forces (Super Deluxe Edition)

Nick Lowe bundle at least got me a cool metal lunchbox. Though this looks pretty nice, I have my original Columbia Armed Forces, and then the Ryko that I think came out of the very first box set. Can’t justify this one. Mostly packaging or am I wrong?

Re: New album Hey Clockface released October 30, 2020

I received my vinyl over the weekend. Really digging all of the ballads, not so much the other tracks. Byline and Whirlwind are amazing.
