Heat, definitely. Down to 1 degree this morning, and -0.4 yesterday morning in Perth. (But then, 20 or 21 degrees during the day, so who's complaining?) OK, the sea then. A good opportunity to dig out some old Tracey Thorn - A Distant Shore and Plain Sailing.
Youse guys read my mind. I am doing the sea. Yes, Tracy Thorn has been trotted out, with exactly those two songs in mind (although as much as I love 'Plain Sailing' I don't think it's really about sailing, so...) I also have tracks from the following selected:Mark EitzelAriel PinkThe BedriddenThe Dirty ThreeYo La TengoEssential LogicDonna SummerAir MiamiVia TaniaPenny IkingerDave GraneyFred Neil (guess...)XL CaprisSilver JewsWalker BrothersJames ReyneHappy Lonesomeetc. Not that I'll have time to play them all of course.
fabbo! looking forward to hearing it (time-shifted, of course. i hafta get up at 6).
Plain Sailing's ok - the sea as metaphor for our daily life. I wrote a verse of A Distant Shore on a toilet wall in the basement of the Melbourne University Union once. Someone wrote back that it was beautiful. I wrote back where it was from. Sort of like early blogging really.
When is this show - not the 11pm punk show is it? and how good is that little time-shifting device Andrew? Maybe I might get one.That's an eclectic list alright.
Two to the Valley Sunday nights 3CR. It's really good.As it happened I didn't get to play half of what I wanted... there just wasn't time. Who ever thought up the idea of a 90 minute radio show? It's like you start eating and they take your plate away.
