Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

It was a glorious decade for all recorded sounds (mostly) and damn! if "Panic in Detroit" doesn't sound like its absolute peak, right now, as it often does. Those Bo Diddley polyrhythms, the electronic effects, feedback-wah squall, supremely panicked vocal (+Linda Lewis!), Dylan-jive lyrics plus that undefined Bowie alien quality....wow. This is a goddamned hard rocking (and rolling and bouncing) masterpiece worthy of the motor city's musical legacy, and the heavy Detroit radio airplay it still receives. (My first exposure, 1985ish - one of the benefits of living right on the Michigan border!)

Just discovered that there is a Song Exploder podcast for the first song on one of my favourite albums ever, The Microphones' The Glow, Pt 2. You get to hear all the different parts isolated; it's really fascinating, particularly when it's something that was buried in the mix before.

I forgot those existed! They are so brilliant. Spoiler: the death star explosion times perfectly with a certain piano chord.

Welcome back!

"Leia's Plans" is amazing in all aspects.

I'm listening to the Arctic Monkeys' "Four Out of Five" and hearing David Bowie.

That new AM record certainly had a lot of Bowie in it. Not on his level, though a-hard-days-night-john-6

Well, yes, and the sky is also blue (except when it's grey, as it is now where I am) mccartney-shrug_01_gif a-hard-days-night-george-10

Was:
'Criminal World' - Metro (I think I still prefer Bowie's slightly because I'm BIAAAAAASED, even though the original has all that cool 'IWY(SSH)' guitar at the end)
'Ram On ' - Paul and Linda McCartney
'Real Cool World' and 'Lucy Can't Dance' and 'Real Cool World' again - the Bowie
'Criminal World' again - the Bowie one
'Afraid' - the Bowie
'Absolute Beginners' - that Bowie

Am:
@50yearslate's favourite album by TAhT eIWoB !

Reality (2003) for those who don't know

I was thinking about giving "Rocket Queen" a spin last night, but didn't. 

Taking a cue from Matt and playing the New York Dolls
