Gem Club, "[Nowhere]"
youtube.com/watch?v=NF2N_dLIxV0


A little while ago

My mother told me
Jesus loved the world
And if that's true then
Why hasn't he helped me to find a girl
And find my world

'Til then I'm just a dreamer
I'm convinced of it
The hypnosis of our minds can take us far away
It's so easy now
You see someone up there high
And heaven's here to stay

Still I dream of it
Of that happy day
When I can say I've fallen in love
And it haunts me so
Like a dream that's
Somehow linked to all the stars above

I'll find my world

Hi paul!

We all have our own idea's and perceptions of what Heaven is and ain't....

They sure don't make country songs like this one anymore!!!

Sounds heavenly to me - but some hell in it:

- not quite the book of revelations,
but another a partridge take on what's to come...
'...watch out, here comes bony boy'

pierre henry's album, really, not spooky tooth,
early electronic-concrète, with proto-heavy metal overtones...
most enjoyable at the time.
certainly of its time!
can't say i'd heard this for decades, so ta for that.
ceremoniously noted.
any 'everything connects' moment:
luther grosvenor (arial bender) joined stealers wheel after this
(later widowmaker who we saw support the who at charlton '76)
and mott the hoople, replacing mick ralphs, who left to form bad company.
mick ralph's blues band 
includes
i) superb drummer sam kelly,
who i've had the pleasure of booking playing with friends of ours,
 alabama blues players debbie bond & 'radiator' rick asherson
(give 'em a listen - she's a great electric guitar player and resembles bonnie raitt)
ii) guitar player jim maving,
who i just met last week when he joined our dear chum from edinburgh dean owens
for his 'southern wind' album launch in london last week
(contender for 'album of the year', honest)
before dean played another house concert for us
(then met jim again last weekend at ramblin' roots revue,
where he was with his case hardin band).

end of ramble...

of Montreal, "It's Easy To Sleep When You're Dead"

The lyrics suggest the Great Beyond isn't so great. The final verse:

You get to spend eternity thinking about your life.
Think of all the time that is. Eternity is forever, is forever, is forever. What will I do forever?
At this time there is nothing you can change. You can only sit and watch and hope they understand.
It's easy to sleep when you're dead. Cause there isn't anything else to do but sleep.

popeye (nts), sugarpie - i think my teeth just fell out!

larry f - that gem club track sounds spookily too much like the 'twin peaks' theme.
not a place i want to hang out in!
eels, i've never got into.
this has undertones of the great sparklehorse
(and that spooky badalamente 'twin peaks' organ again)...
- i could listen to hank williams all day some days
(and our chum dean owens - see below - does the odd great cover).
the the recorded a fab album of his songs and
belfast's bap kennedy also.
the raving beauties (a sort of americana supergroup,
including brighton / belfast's brian bell)
just released a 10" vinyl of great bap kennedy songs
in support of marie curie cancer who looked after bap at the end.
ed harcourt , hmmm, i s'pose '...dream of it' might be extrapolated
as it's '...somehow linked to all the stars above'
i just love where he takes this tune after the main song drifts to an end. 
back into sparklehorse territory again
(and that's not necessarily a place you'd want to hang out, really,
given what happened to mark linkous!).
have a listen to the album 'wanderlust' 
that ed harcourt  co-wrote arranged and produced for sophie ellis bextor
- he's a great talent, working with others at the expense of his own solo career.
here's a somewhat apposite track 'interlude' - '...i'm heading home...'


al (grovelly grovels for mixing you in earlier...)
- our pal tim pope, who did all those the the diveos,
made a diveo for ms tunstall
(not one of her better songs from 'eye to the telescope', alas),
but i suppose we can all think of 'another place to fall'.


off to see our wiggy-out friends alex neilson and the awe-inspiring trembling bells
tonight along the road (fellow blueboarder john e will be there, too)
touring from glasgow with their new album 'dungeness'.
we'll be bringing 6 musicians home with us later!
i intend to have a very good time...

Reverence to Mr. Zevon, and to Hunter S. Thompson who loved his music... and Spalding Gray and Iris Chang.

Which reminds me, I misheard the lyrics to "Desperados Under the Eaves" for many years.

I heard "don't the trees look like crucified bees."

I thought he was, looking up at palm trees in Los Angeles, where the sun certainly can look angry. 

but actually, I'm told, he sang "crucified thieves" which along with the line about "heaven help the one who leaves" makes that song appropriate to this topic...

I don't think I'd ever heard of Ed Harcourt before yesterday when YouTube presented his "Still I Dream of It" cover with the extended fadeout. Right now I'm listening to the music he wrote for S. Darko, an attempted sequel to Donnie Darko. Almost everyone seems to have hated the movie, but his music is very good. 


Neil Young & Crazy Horse, "A Dream That Can Last" from the album Sleeps With Angels

I feel like I died and went to Heaven
The cupboards are bare but the streets are paved with gold

I saw a young girl who didn't die
I saw a glimmer from in her eye
I saw the distance, I saw the past
And I know I won't awaken, it's a dream that can last

And all the lights were turned down low
And no one wondered or had to go
Out on the corner the angels say
There is a better life for me someday

I was inspired this week:
youtube.com/watch?v=FsKRdnj0SDg
(spoke to someone who said their mom was D. Hall's manager - maybe) (Am I - out of touch with my religion?)

VOTES:
Gold to Mr. P and XTC and company - I was going this all the way.  Still a fan of Simpleton though.
Silver - Nick Cave (don't believe in angels?  Whaaaaaa?)

Second tier this week
Bronze - Brian and company - don't know about this.
Tin - I'm a respectful person of the Talking Heads but not this song. Heaven is bar alright.

Got me kind of spiritual this week.

My votes :

Gold - Brian Wilson - Let's Go To Heaven In My Car
Silver - Nick Cave - Into My Arms
Bronze - Talking Heads - Heaven
Tin - XTC - Dear God

I'm stumped for a video without using the obvious "Heaven" word...... so how about a bit of Gospel...its all connected !
