    Grilled Possum

    I was just trying to rhyme with that other thread. This one's mine.

    I'm sensing a purpose with this thread. Nope, sorry, can't post here.

    Once, someone (I think it was Jay) said "if you don't like 'Oh Bondage, Up Yours!', you'll just never like punk rock." I've been thinking about making a mixtape along that line... not necessarily my all-time favorites, but just songs that-- if you don't understand why I love these songs, you'll just never understand me. This will be my first selection:

    WARNING: SPOILER ALERT: Frankly, this video is offensive to everyone I've ever met...The views expressed in this song do not represent the views of the poster...it is merely representative of the punk ethos alive in this thread...none of you should click on this video...I'm not sure who Jerry Curlan is/was, what he did to engage such hatred, but here goes....Nice work, Rae...you're welcome...

    So, I broke into the palace
    With a sponge and a rusty spanner
    She said : "Eh, I know you, and you cannot sing"
    I said : "That's nothing - you should hear me play piano"

    Hmm, I'm not sure that I think that's of a piece with the rest of this thread, but I do love me some Samoans, even though I agree with you that their sophomoric politics are simultaneously repulsive and their raison d'Ítre. Some quick Googling unearthed this explanation from the band:

    "At the Turner family house at 4857 Beeman Ave, North Hollywood, sometime in 1981 —Gregg Turner's mom was reminding him of this guy Jerry Kurlan—an old high school buddy of Greg's little brother frat-type Ron Turner—"Jerry's such a nice guy, he's in pre-law, interned for the state legislative, why, he's even got friends in Sacramento!" (Gregg is at this time living at home, no job, no income, "working" as a rock critic and general neer-do-well, playing air guitar in this strange garage band...)

    In the meantime, Jackie (Mrs.) Turner — a nice lady, BTW, we practiced in the garage at Turner's parents house and both his parents are real nicepeople — was making these invidious comparisons, as mothers will—"why can't YOU make friends? why do you play in this disgusting punk rock band?"— and between the tirades, Gregg and Todd Homer were intermittently sneaking back to Greg's bedroom to scroll Jackie's comments verbatim and interject the truth about Jerry: "sleeps with midgets, drives a Ferrari, and fucks assholes, fucks black assholes!"

    Add the fact that Gregg's mom is a first grade teacher, for life, and you begin to see the whole picture. She doesn't even notice they keep disappearing and reappearing. Kurlan had to be changed to "Curlan" because the guy later became a lawyer, and Jackie Turner refused any and all songwriting credits to this day.

    This story reminds me somewhat of Dire Straits' Mark Knopfler taking notes from an audio-display-workmen conversation he overheard while he was looking for a new TV, and them notes became "Money For Nothing."

    OK, that's all I know. Probably Gregg really got an earful from his Mom after I went to Cornell Grad School to study Economics (failingly), no doubt that's what drove him back to Cal State Northridge to finally get a useless doctorate in Mathematics out at the Claremont universities (besides the certain knowledge that Rock and Roll Does Not Pay!)."


    Here's a couple more for good measure:
