    Wow, kinda forgot about Pete Ubu. Nice reminder.

    Looking through my old albums?

    Next time let’s talk about Ryuichi Sakamoto or Laurie Anderson or Sylvan. I applaud anyone with wide taste in 70-80s music.

    Just a great song (but perhaps not so great video).

    I always thought Dave Thomas was a trip. Waiting for Mary was one of those tunes that could always brighten my mood.

    Their album Ray Gun Suitcase is always in rotation here on Planet Peegoo.

    It's different and it's not radio friendly--but most really great music is that way.

    Greetings from Sunny New Jersey
    I worked in a bar in Syracuse, NY many lifetimes ago... around closing time we'd put on Modern Dance to get the late night stragglers moving toward the exits. It worked very well.
    I went from hating that band to loving them - kind of a musical version of Stockholm syndrome :)
