DVR alert. Tomorrow morning at 5:15 am EST, TCM is airing an old documentary about Lightnin’ Hopkins. I have never seen this film so I have no idea if it’s any good. But it sounds like something worth taking a chance on.
If it's the short one by Les Blank, it is strange and wonderful. Best watched after a bourbon or two.

Speakin' of poor ole Lightnin'...

how prog and new wave intersect....

Both members of the Buggles were members of Yes for the album Drama after Wakefield and Anderson left the band.

Pretty sure they're not old timey, but there's a band playing Boulder next week called Pruitt. Would have grabbed a pic of the poster, but I was running late for the bus and a beer at the pub with the wife before we had to go grab the kid from daycare.

You still have to be in good shape to be in Byrne's band. Everyone danced the whole damn time when I saw him last fall.
I took a two hour nap and cried during parks and Rec. it was awesome and terrifying.

Funny thing When I saw the talking heads in 1980, there was no dancing on stage at all. Just a four piece band standing there and playing. Not even much conversation with the audience.

Long, long, long before they became a brutal self-parody, this was the greatest rock band in the world.

Certainly considering all that came afterwards in the world of rock - that is one of the most influential albums of all time.

It's not in my typical wheelhouse, but I love Strangeways, Here We Come.

Johnny Marr's licks. Just so perfect.
