A covers edition of Flashback Friday
Additional track: Chromatics covering Sprinsteen’s “I’m on Fire”
Word is that a few people had asked about my daughter. Thanks to the Scissorheads for their kind words and encouragement a few weeks ago. We made it through the initial trauma and have transferred to a major research hospital with an amazing staff. I can’t say enough good things about the teams that have been working with us at this facility.
We’re dealing with the neuro injuries and recovery that come with anoxic brain injury. Even though progress is slow, there is progress every day. We won’t know where we’ll land through this recovery process for weeks or months. It’s going to be a long road with a lot of hard work. All things considered, the rest of the family is doing well as we figure out what the future holds.
Apparently there are a lot of old Conan O’Brien musical guest clips on youtube.
I’ve been listening to a lot of Run the Jewels lately waiting for the remix of their latest album dubbed Meow the Jewels that will be remixed with all cat sounds. I figured Killer Mike’s song “Reagan” qualifies as a Flashback based solely on it’s choice sampling of Reagan quotes. There hasn’t been too much in recent pop culture pushing back against the St. Ronnie image.
To flashback more along that line:
Happy belated Friday To you all. I had to call in sick yesterday since I caught a case of Cocteau Twins Fever. It appears to have swept through Ohio circa 1985 rather viciously. Make sure you’re up to date on your vaccinations.
Since everything is recorded and photographed with miniature devices nowadays, I’m glad someone decided to add a bulky camera during these studio sessions.
Honorable mention to Peter Gabriel. And yes, that was Huey Lewis in the background of the Albert Lee clip.
One song, four takes. Halloween hint: they get creepier as they go along.
Apologies to Scissorhead GRS who runs the music normally. I couldn’t resist.
I’m borrowing from John Richards at KEXP and going with his Friday song. I don’t understand the video either, but the song is happy.
