    FSotD: Anything I say to you is gonna come out wrong anyway

    Pinback's "Concrete Seconds" for me today. What a great song, really captures a feeling. Kind of an existentialist view on this one, the waiting and the inability to communicate, but she's always there. Those semingly endless "concrete seconds". Love their minimalist sense of style, and how smart they are. Not to mention, it's good music that seems to flow right into my ears and makes a biorhythmic connection with my sensory system

    Sitting at a bus stop
    Trying to take my shoes off
    But my laces are all knots and you
    Looking for an answer to an old question
    So easy I can't explain it
    Anything I say to you is gonna come out wrong anyway

    Ooh Yeah Pinback

    For me it's DCFC's Title and Registration

    the glove compartment isn't accurately named
    and everybody knows it.
    so I'm proposing a swift orderly change.

    cause behind its door there's nothing to keep my fingers warm
    and all I find are souvenirs from better times
    before the gleam of your taillights fading east
    to find yourself a better life.

    I was searching for some legal document
    as the rain beat down on the hood
    when I stumbled upon pictures I tried to forget
    and that's how this idea was drilled into my head

    Cheers
    Mike

    I'm going with an old Canadian standard this week.....Little Bones by The Tragically Hip.

    $2.50 for a hi-ball
    And a buck and a half for a beer
    Happy hour, happy hour,
    Happy hour is here....

    $2.50 for an eyeball
    And a buck and a half for an ear
    Happy hour, happy hour,
    Happy hour is here

    Au contraire, mon ami. You must not read many of my posts! You Canuckleheads know not of real cheese, except in your collective musical taste

    I have one

    I'm going back 35 years....1971....Nine Feet Underground from Caravan's In The Land Of Grey And Pink. Its an unadulterated prog/jam-fest that clocks in just a little over 21 minutes long but never bogs down or gets boring. Just got through listening to it.

    Hey, just trying to keep it real

    Hey, I really like that. Is the rest of the album that good? Yes, I've determined it's Tapes'n'Tapes -- I'll go back and see if I can find your posts on the subject, I seem to remember you street-teaming them for a phase.

    It never rains in California, but girl don't they warn you,

    it snows, man, it SNOWS!

    I'll Come Running

    I'll find a place somewhere in the corner
    I'm gonna waste the rest of my days
    Just watching patiently from the window
    Just waiting seasons change, some day
    Oh, oh, my dreams will pull you through that garden gate.


    I want to be the wandering sailor
    We're silhouettes by the light of the moon
    I sit playing solitaire by the window
    Just waiting seasons change, ah, ah
    You'll see, one day, these dreams will pull you through my door
    And I'll come running to tie your shoe
    And I'll come running to tie your shoe.


    Friday was ALL-ENO ALL-DAY!

    Did you play my Brian Eno Greatest Hits compilation? That caused me quite a dilemma when I made it, you know, pondering the age-old question of whether it is okay to strip the hot tracks from the original albums, or should they only be played as the artist intended since they're all so strong? I have the same problem when I do any of my modern rock comps too, like Foo Fighters or Goo Goo Dolls. Do you have the complete Another Green World? How much Eno do you have, Princess?

    * you'll have to read the link for the meaning behind the last bit

    I think you need a copy of 801 Live. They remastered it awhile back for Manzanera's own label but made a few errors and so are apparently gonna do it again, but this time with the care it deserves and are even asking for fans to help out with concert footage and the like. Most won't notice the problems, and the older remaster does have a couple extra tracks that shoulda been on the original, but they had to chop em for vinyl play time. Eno and Manzanera and friends.

    801 Live
    (1976)

    Track listing

    1. "Lagrima" (Manzanera)
    2. "TNK (Tomorrow Never Knows)" (Lennon/McCartney - The Beatles)
    3. "East of Asteroid" (Manzanera/MacCormick)
    4. "Rongwrong" (Hayward - Quiet Sun)
    5. "Sombre Reptiles" (Eno)
    6. "Golden Hours" (Eno)
    7. "Fat Lady of Limburg" (Eno)
    8. "Baby's on Fire" (Eno)
    9. "Diamond Head" (Manzanera)
    10. "Miss Shapiro" (Manzanera/Eno)
    11. "You Really Got Me" (R. Davies - The Kinks)
    12. "Third Uncle" (Eno)

    Personnel

    * Phil Manzanera (guitar)
    * Brian Eno (keyboards, synthesizers, guitar, and vocals)
    * Bill MacCormick (bass and vocals)
    * Simon Phillips (drums and rhythm generator)
    * Francis Monkman Fender Rhodes piano and clavinet)
    * Lloyd Watson (slide-guitar and vocals).

    Maybe we should do a thread about songs that mention shoe laces and/or tying shoes? I can think of a couple more right off the tip of the vestigial point on the top of my little head.

    Yeah, it's great but not all of the songs sound like that one. Actually, none of them really do. Some are pretty synth-heavy but guitar is always the main focal point. I ordered the CD last Saturday but it's still not here. I can ysi it when it arrives (in wma lossless or ALE) but if you want to hear more sooner I got the whole thing from Limewire.

    Heheheheh. Good times.

    Just the comp you sent, Davey. I think its 74-78? There's no track list but that's okay, cause I'm doing the discovery process as I get to know the songs. I'm glad you resisted the temptation to put the "hits" on it.

    Its funny that the song I know the best - Baby's on Fire - is the one that sounds the least like the rest.

    Well, there's the two in this thread already, and of course, Dylan's classic epic "Tangled Up In Blue", one with also a bit of that Samuel Beckett existentialism between the characters, like in my first pick.

    Your turn

    Your turn
    No takers on a dead Saturday, eh? OK, I'll add another recent one from that great Abattoir Blues / The Lyre Of Orpheus double CD from those Bad Seeds guys. Called "Let the Bells Ring" and comes toward the end of the Abattoir disc, supposedly written as a tribute to the great late Johnny Cash ...

    There are those of us not fit to tie
    The laces of your shoes
    Must remain behind to testify
    Through an elementary blues
    So, let's walk outside, the hour is late
    Through your crumbs and scattered shells
    Where the awed and the mediocre wait
    Barely fit to ring the bells


    Almost made another thread this morning about that great Songs:Ohia song with a similar theme, "Ring The Bell". Has some of that Nick Cave and the holy ghost feel to it. Especially toward the end where Jason sings about ...

    I know that serpents will cross universes to circle around our necks
    I know that hounds will cross a universe to circle around our feet
    They're always close
    Always so close
    Step by step, one's beside me, to kill me or to guide me
    Why wouldn't I be trying to figure which one out
    Why wouldn't I be trying to figure which one out


    Funny that we can't get any more chatter around here than this. Seems like a lot more people stop by than the meager number of posts would indicate, but how come none of them make any attempt to say anything. What's the point of visiting if you don't post something and at least say hi? Guess when it gets this bad, most people don't feel it's worth the trouble anymore.

    Maybe they're all busy listening to the amazing song I posted
    Didja like it?

    I only have dialup at home so don't download much here, and none at work, and I thought you had posted a big fat file, but now I see it was lossy so I'll go ahead and give it a try. It'll still take about 10 minutes, so keep your panties on.

    EDIT: Ya, fun song. Listened a few times. Thanks. At first it seemed a bit over dramatic, but that feel mostly went away. Almost a touch of progginess to it in the middle, with kind of a Calexico meets Madness sound. Haven't read anything about them yet except from you, but haven't been paying much attention lately.

    Might be CD-TEXT on it. I made a few different versions, as I'm prone to do. The last people I gave copies to got a cover and everything. Your tracklist is probably almost like the one below, but likely there are differences. Glad you're enjoying it still, or finally, or however that worked out. I probably have more albums by or with Eno than anyone else. He's omnipresent in my music world. Well, maybe not omnipresent, but some word like that. You already knew that

    Heart of Gold

    I want to live,
    I want to give
    Iíve been a miner for a heart of gold.
    Itís these expressions I never give
    That keep me searching for a heart of gold
    And Iím getting old.
    Keeps me searching for a heart of gold
    And Iím getting old.

    Iíve been to hollywood
    Iíve been to redwood
    I crossed the ocean for a heart of gold
    Iíve been in my mind, itís such a fine line
    That keeps me searching for a heart of gold
    And Iím getting old.
    Keeps me searching for a heart of gold
    And Iím getting old.

    Keep me searching for a heart of gold
    You keep me searching for a heart of gold
    And Iím getting old.
    Iíve been a miner for a heart of gold.
