Life During Wartime, May 2, 2006

Huh. Usually don't post two playlists in a row, but whatever. A cold, windy, shitty day and a show that felt four hours long... but not in a bad way. So I guess this show has a retro core, now, an unavoidable side-effect of being an ancient geezer. I don't mind; digging back offers just as much as guessing forward. Like... Television? A name, a concept until a few weeks ago. But now, as happened with Devo -- what was it... thirteen years ago? -- I'm decades-belatedly getting into a defunct band from a gone time... and Tom Verlaine's new record(s) is/are pretty special. Lots of learning left...

So, if my new job is to give Twenties their first taste of Six Finger Satellite, that's cool with me. Go Oilers.
