Well. Not quite. But by way of apology to Nathan Nothin\’ – whom I mortally offended with my opening line to the recent Baden Powell post – here\’s something by Sir Richard Bishop of Sun City Girls instead.
Actually, I\’m fairly ashamed to confess I have little in the way of Reinhardt. All right, all right. Nothing. Nada. Ø.
There. I\’ve said it.
The third selection winds it\’s way over from the ever excellent Record Robot with the admonition: \”Your uncle Jim smokes pot.\” Indeed.
Here\’s a comment I left over there earlier (like, nearly two years back), regarding Honk Kong diva, Chan Pao Chu:
\”Completely fucking surreal. Maybe it\’s the cumulative combat shock of listening to this, Johnny Wright, and the Sun City Girls back to back… but this shit is like eavesdropping on Shonen Knife blasted back in time to do some in-country gig for the troops as the huey blades whir overhead and your body bleeds out in the paddyfield. Just as uncomfortable as it is eerily funny.\”
Hope this will suffice, Nate. Oh, dear.
