A Little Pre-Xmas Pop for You

Not sure how I could have missed this...

Jon Brion plus Pete Thomas plus dreamy amazing pop songs.

And Paul Simon's kid.

Nothing To Hope and Nothing to Fear

I'd Sign It For You Dude If You'd Only Request

Presented without commentary from me.

But with a tiny bit of commentary from Mr. Hitchcock.

Because, you know, it's his song.

But I'll say that I read on a long-gone listserv from the era that a Robyn Hitchcock fan mentioned asking Robyn to sign weird things after a concert and joked that he almost brought an Indiana Jones poster for him to sign. A few years later this song appeared.

Coincidence? I think not.

Thirty Five

Get your healing from a song...

Written and recorded 35 years ago tomorrow.

In the face of great tragedy, you can only turn inward.

And Some Days All You Can Do is Listen To This Over and Over

Days like today.

Fucking days like today.

More and more of them.

Almost every day it seems.

A time to dust off the vinyl. And listen to this 30 times in a row or so.
