Saw Tinariwen at the weekend. They were feckin magic.
Avatar 7:06am duke:

The song describes a soldier waiting to go into battle who thinks of the woman he loves and his hometown of Galveston, Texas. The song was originally sung by Don Ho, who introduced Glen Campbell to it when he appeared as a guest on Campbell's Goodtime Hour, and the second verse was originally transcribed:
"Wonder if she could forget me
"I'd go home if they would let me
"Put down this gun
"And go to Galveston."[7]
However, in Campbell's version, this was changed to read:
"I still hear your sea waves crashing
"While I watch the cannons flashing
"I clean my gun
"And dream of Galveston."[8]

Avatar 7:24am Wild Neil:

PEACE all. I SAW an FMU shirt on a bookstore employee in Buffalo. We had a nice chat about who our favorite DJs are (Clay you are one of them!) and how we can simultaneously love and hate the music we hear, sometimes in a single show. I told her how my 13 year old was blown away by the fact that some shows (Bryce? Fabio?) were literally NOISE and that listening to that made the "weird music" (from his 13 year old perspective) I listen to (King Crimson, Brian Eno) seem pretty tame.
