That Aldo Nova song takes me back to High School, right on the cusp of discovering weird music.

HOLY CRAP, how could I have missed the Aldo Nova tune?

Hey Joe Bach is our dog's favourite composer.

I am surprised it was as late as '81. I have this false memory of having ditched our local classic rock station by then for something else. Guess not.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/10/15 11:15am Rev. Turnip Druid:

My mental flashback playlist always sequences Fantasy with Billy Thorpe's "children of the sun" -- must be the pew-pew.

well, I can see you transitioning pretty smoothly into mr. Belock. And Chris M's black metal-lish leanings complementing Diane

Complementing? That's a lot of salvage yard in a short amount of time. Thank heavens for Charlie.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/10/15 11:34am Brian in UK:

Joe, is this a new one from Martin Newell? Any verbals on it?
  Thu. 9/10/15 11:34am Brendan:

Always the summers are slipping away
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/10/15 11:35am Joe McG:

@Brian: Yes! Most of them are verbals. I love that, BTW, I'm using it from now on for songs with vocals.
  Thu. 9/10/15 11:38am Dean:

I am just now midway through Alistair MacLeod's short story, "The Closing Down of Summer."

Brian, the more salvage yard the better! Let the war banners of me-TAL unfurl.

and on Monday, the checked picnic cloths of country and folk may also unfurl.

and the pit barbeque of Southern rock 'n' roll in all its variations let loose its tantalizing smells

Too homogenous for me. All the banners are gray on gray.

@Tommy: I was just thinking how odd it was that I liked something by Van. This is a first. Thanks, Joe.
  Thu. 9/10/15 11:47am Dean:

MacLeod was a writer from (and about) Nova Scotia, where his stories tend to take place. The stories are beautiful and painful at once. I was reminded of his work after Trouble recommended Jane Gardam. Based on that rec, I read a collection of her stories, and it occurred to me that she treated similar themes in similar ways.

When Ryley Walker played at Poisson Rouge a few weeks ago, he mentioned he's got a new album coming out soonish.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/10/15 11:51am Listener Scott:

Had to check that the 2015 release date for Ryley was accurate. Really liked that.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/10/15 11:51am Brian in UK:

@Dean have you sampled Annie Proulx?
  Thu. 9/10/15 11:52am Laura L:

@Scott--it's a very good album--a keeper.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 9/10/15 11:53am Brian in UK:

Ryley Walker was playing a 1000 year old church in Guildford last week. Guess who missed him.
  Thu. 9/10/15 11:53am Dean:

@Brian in UK: I haven't, alas. Truly, I don't often have an opportunity to read for pleasure as I have lately. I regret not being able to read (and reread) the works of Anita Brookner, which I adore, or Henry James, for that matter. But I've managed to fit in some reading lately on the bus, on an airplane, etc.
Avatar Thu. 9/10/15 11:55am βrian:

Annie won't further the illusion you're reading for pleasure, so don't worry. Oy. Great writer, though.
