    Truly loved that Plimsouls album, and they were never able to follow it up. Not sure what happened, but Peter Case has been indulging his Woody Guthrie troubadour fantasies ever since.

    Good for him... but not so much for me.

    yes guitars are great, a million miles away is great. It reminds me of The Flaming Groovies:shake some action, different but similar re: the feeling

    Thought this thread was about pedals, but never even heard of this group. Maybe just showing my age.... I'll move along now :lol:

    Great thread!
    Some cool people hipped me to The Nerves, which Case was in before Plimsouls.
    Even early on the cool guitars were present

    Appreciating Peter Case's work with the Plimsouls requires that you listen to the Nerves.

    I got to sing "A Million Miles Away" with Peter Case at a show in Cambridge last year it was a total power pop thrill. If he comes to your town, and he probably will go see him! He is a masterful songwriter sand great player- he does a lot of fingerpicking in a drop C tuning on a Taylor 12 string that sounds enormous.

    I did not know that Peter Case was in the Nerves. I love Hanging on the Telephone, though I'm much more familiar with Blondie's excellent cover. Their's has much more on an edge to it.

    And I have the Plimsouls CD in the collection.

    Saw them open for the Bangles. I still perform A Million Miles Away, which is a great guitar song. Of Peter Case's solo work, "Paradise, Etc." is as good a song as there is.

    Nerves, Plimsouls, Flamin' Groovies... it's called 'power pop.' And it makes me happy.

    A buddy is pretty good friends with Peter.

    Saw the Plimsouls open for the Tubes. Weird bit of the story. The venue was at a university, and it had squash courts in the basement. And I was there playing squash when some of the band members wandered by. Security was probably looser back them. We almost talked some of the guys into playing with us. Probably a bad idea. But I remember talking to one of the Plimsouls and he had bird **** on his shirt. Ah the glory of the touring musician. We hadn’t really planned on going to the show but after talking to a couple of the guys - possibly a Tube or two as well - we bought tix and went.

    First, great show. Second, the shirt with bird **** made it to the stage.

    Haven’t seen Peter since, but he’s been able to keep a music career alive all this time so kudos to him.

    Cheers,
    Geoff
