Great song! Not to be *too* geeky, but this was originally by The Clique in '69, the same Texas band that did "Sugar On Sunday". In case, you didn't already know...

Hi Therese! Hi everyone in this almost-prime time slot!

Helllllloo there, Therese!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm Matt from Springfield:

Hiya, Wexford Carm!

I saw the movie "Brooklyn", where Saoirse's character emigrated from Wexford to Brooklyn post WWII. If you've seen it, I got to ask, was Ireland/Wexford really like *that* in the mid 20th century?
  10:15pm P-90:

Hello Therese! Still getting that time-warpy vibe, I'm so used to you being a "Midnight DJ", which you may always be in spirit
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm Matt from Springfield:

Hi P-90! Midnight is still associated with this time slot, fortunately.
  10:18pm Carmichael:

@matt, yes generally. I was born in County Wexford in the 50s. Quite rural and a bit tough.
  10:18pm P-90:

@Matt:Hi! Missed you on Goddamn Dave's show the last few weeks. Curious: which '*that*" surprised you about the depiction of Wexford in "Brooklyn"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:22pm Matt from Springfield:

Thanks Carm, the writer was also born in that area and time, was wondering how accurate that was.

@P-90: Mostly the *that* was the busybody inconsiderate shop owner :) though the low economic prospects and lack of heat in the winter were also kind of stereotypical of old Irish villages. Just wanted the opinion of someone from there how that depicted the reality of that time.
  10:24pm Carmichael:

Great bed music, Therese.
  10:25pm JakeGould:

@P-90: You’re from Ireland?

FWIW, friends of mine who went to school with me in the 1970s lived in what were essentially bungalows in Brooklyn. No hot water or even central heating if I recall as well. And that only ended sometime in the 1980s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm Matt from Springfield:

I love The Clique, *BUT*...I wouldn't have known about their version if not for REM's. Thus, proving your point!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm Matt from Springfield:

@Jake: I don't believe P-90 is, but Carm has said before that he was.
  10:28pm Carmichael:

The only reason I know the Clique is from their cover of Tommy James' Sugar on Sunday.
  10:28pm JakeGould:

@MattFromSprinfield: Oh, okay… But have you ever seen these photos of what life was like in Birmingham in the 1960s? Pretty sobering. www.dailymail.co.uk...
  10:32pm Carmichael:

This sounds a lot like Roy Wood. Because it is ..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm Matt from Springfield:

Wow, great photostudy, thanks Jake.

From my love of British public information films PIFs/PSAs, I once found 2 from the 70s about this type of "modern squalor"; how to get funds for an interior bathroom and hot running water for urban houses without it.
  10:34pm P-90:

I remember them Dynaflex records. The elder audiophiles held them in generally low regard, as I recall. They felt the sound reproduction quality was actually a little poorer that the conventional LPs that weighed more, and they picked up more "rumble" noise because of their lower mass. Generally, dismissed as an excuse to use less material, produce records that could be shipped more cheaply because they weighed less, and didn't suffer as much breakage in transit because they were so flexible. But: Dynaflex was a real cool name, and the font was real Mod

Keen Pop sensibilities - Metal guitar sound - The Ramones just took the best of everything w/out having too very much of anything...
  10:40pm JakeGould:

I think at the end of the day, I really get sad about Dee Dee not being around anymore. He always seemed to be the Ramone who would be most likely to help you move.
  10:40pm P-90:

@ Matt: we tend to not be so conscious here in the States of just how hard things were in Europe and the UK in the postwar years. They had sugar shortages, meat shortages, shortages of fabrics, building materials, you name it. The West was in a Depression even before WWII, and the war left another economic disaster, took decades to recover. The Liverpool the Fabs grew up in, for example, was still climbing out of that hole
Avatar 10:42pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...DeeDee & PostWar UK not having too very much of anything...Why Pete smashing guitars was so nihilistic to them...

I guess Lee Scratch Perry has replaced his studio equipment after his last fire....

George Harrison: 'You couldn't get a cup of sugar - much less a Rock'n'Roll record.' & Dylan in the MidWest stealing a friend's Guthrie LPS: 'They were scarce as hen's teeth.' Donovan saying his lot learned Blues off 78s - &tc.
Avatar 10:45pm northguineahills:

...studio fire....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm Matt from Springfield:

@RRN63: Not to mention in Dylan's early days, the old blues and folk records usually weren't in the catalogue or on comps - once the limited run was pressed decades ago, that was it. If you wanted that record, you had to put in shoe leather and find it yourself.
Avatar 10:48pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

You could listen to records in the shops then. Dylan said he could learn a song hearing it once, maybe twice. 'I had an agile mind.' No kidding.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48pm Matt from Springfield:

"Ghost Town"!! (Speaking of poverty/slums/and now the racism resided there)...
Avatar 10:50pm Veronica (OG):

Hi all...Great show tonight Therese! And speaking of The Specials, that reminded me Prince Buster passed away on Sept. 8th. Where would Two Tone have been without that influence??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm Matt from Springfield:

Oh dear, I hadn't heard Veronica!
RIP Prince Buster - he was quite influential on ska, he did the original "One Step Beyond".

Dig new time frame, Therese!
  10:58pm P-90:

@Matt: Colin Macinnes' 1958 novel "Absolute Beginners" vividly depicts the economics of life in the UK in those years. So yeah, "low prospects" and lack of heating oil in the Irish countryside, etc. were the reality. Young people were fleeing places like that for London and Brooklyn looking to escape that bleakness

I want an absence note from Springsteen :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:54pm Matt from Springfield:

In NJ at least Springsteen's signature should be legal tender. The Boss' word is as good as money.

I should go to a book signing and get Bruce to co-sign my next round of student loans
