It isn't a newspaper. It's a page from the Richard Henry Dana novel.

Wait, TYBtM isn't a novel. It's a memoir.

I hafta buy a new car. I hate cars. Any suggestions? I'm thinking as cheap as possible: Hyundai, Mazda, Lamborghini...

Mazda's are very good. Hyundais give great value. Lambos will get you laid.

Dean: Subaru Cross Trek - simple and swell, and cool too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/7/15 12:19pm Uncle Michael:

Also...don't buy a new car. Find a three year old car with under 30k miles on it.

plus, not that you'll need it much, but a tank in the snow!

1975 Datsun pick up truck. Nice and simple.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/7/15 12:20pm Uncle Michael:

The Cross Trek is very nice...until you realize how much you pay for how it looks and see what a similarly equipped Forrester costs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/7/15 12:20pm Carmichael:

Hondas are a little more expensive, but the total cost of ownership is very low. Hyundai SUVs are very popular these days, but I don't know much about their maintenance record.
  Tue. 7/7/15 12:21pm Dean:

Thanks, UM, but I'm really looking for a vehicle comprising all three benefits. Yeah, used is an option.

Thought of Subaru, too, VP, but 1) the local dealer is also a Ford dealer and I'm sick and tired of them , and 2) I don't live in Oregon or Washington.

Pickup won't work, βrian, unless I relegate the kids to the bed where they can roll around.

Great advice, all. Thank you. Keep it coming!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/7/15 12:21pm Uncle Michael:

Hondas seem to be resting on laurels they earned in the '80s and '90s. They're not as bulletproof as they once were.
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 12:22pm Tony Coulter:

How about a Trabant?
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 12:22pm V Priceless:

@ UM - I lease mine, but sticker is a very reasonable 24K (2014)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/7/15 12:23pm Uncle Michael:

I was in buying mode not long ago when I was facing an expensive repair on a 13 year-old car. I avoided the repair but I was very close to choosing the mazda CX-5.
  Tue. 7/7/15 12:23pm Dean:

Exactly what my auto repair person told me, UM.

Good idea, TC. There's a dealership just blocks from our house.

Thought of leasing, too. Downside is I can't come up with a business write-off.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/7/15 12:24pm Uncle Michael:

The CrossTek I liked priced out over 30k with all the goodies I couldn't resist.
  Tue. 7/7/15 12:24pm Dean:

Same situation here, UM: a 13YO car in need of new oil gasket, struts/shocks, and new transmission. Other than that, she hums like a Ferrari, except for the funky electrical issues with the auto-locks and the trunk.
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 12:24pm βrian:

If they still made Volvos, I'd recommend a sedan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/7/15 12:25pm Uncle Michael:

They still make Volvos!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/7/15 12:26pm Uncle Michael:

Volvos aren't bargains.

I'd recommend VW but for two things. Most of the dealers are shitheads (not all...you might be lucky) and parts are EXPENSIVE.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/7/15 12:26pm Carmichael:

SUVs are always a good choice. You can seat 4 or 5, and also haul around all the associated kid gear.
  Tue. 7/7/15 12:26pm Dean:

Also thinking a Harley with a sidecar for the kids. But then I'd have to invest in leathers and get tattoos.

Maybe a horse? But I need one with get-up-and-go. Any chance I can find a 200HP horse?
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 12:27pm βrian:

They stopped making Volvos in 1998. The brand name is still in use, but who wants to drive a logo?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/7/15 12:27pm Carmichael:

Oh, and Hi Tony!
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 12:28pm V Priceless:

Hyundai was OK - drove a Genesis (fantastic) and a Santa Fe, but I discovered their financing tactics were down-right criminal, so never again with them.

cool thing about the Cross Trek is it has more of a car footprint to it than a larger SUV. Plus, their add campaign features dogs driving them, so what's not to like?
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 12:28pm βrian:

Yeesh, had a quick meeting, so I missed S&tFS and, OMG, Herbert Howells!

More good car advice, thank you all. Hyundai Genesis is WAY out of my budget. (This, despite the fact that I'm pretty sure I can afford $150K amplifiers, but you know, priorities.)

On the subject of cars: I'm currently driving a very well-cared-for, 20-year-old automobile that, I sense, is getting ready to give up the ghost. Just hoping the most recent thousand dollar repair gets us through the summer voyages (mostly to and from camp). I've learned to ignore the "engine oil low" and "check coolant" warnings, as they are not accurate, but the recent appearance of "brake light circuit" did give me pause.
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 1:57pm Jeff Golick:

Lovely set, this, Tony.

@JeffG, those are hard bits of math to do, and I'm not talking algebra. Hate gambling on whether a car's gonna crap out and ding my wallet. Hope yours is a low-drama vehicle throughout the summer and beyond.
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:02pm Jeff Golick:

Quite right, βrian. Had the classic case of bringing the car in for the brake light check, and the problem did not reappear, so they just had me pick it up again. Fingers crossed, @ljfw; thanks.

@LJ. Never do trade-ins! Keep the transactions separate. That's the only way to properly parse the numbers.

does that include Federal Law as well - or if I open my own WEED store the FBI will arrest me and confiscate the lot?
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:09pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

Speaking of classical prog, about an hour ago i was listening to Chris Squire's epic "Safe (Canon Song)" from his 70s solo album. It blew my teenage mind when i heard it once on late night radio, still sounds pretty worthy, although a bit bombastic for my current tastes...

never heard Chris Squire solo stuff - he was in Yes wasn't he?
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:10pm Tony Coulter:

Heya, Canterbury wood-elf! Don't shoot me anyone, but I actually prefer the Squire and Steve Howe solo stuff to Yes itself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/7/15 2:10pm Carmichael:

Yes.
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:11pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

Yes indeed, Mr. Pot Man! The only person to play on all of their albums. I was checking his solo album cos he recently died : (
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:12pm The Pot Man:

for that matter Tony - do you rate Steve Hackett solo stuff better or worse than his stuff with Genesis?
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:13pm Tony Coulter:

@ Pot Man: I like the Hacket stuff quite a bit too, but I also like early Genesis, so it's sort of a tie there.
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:14pm βrian:

Yes, when they were just considering the idea of starting a band ...
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:14pm The Pot Man:

love Steve Hillage's solo stuff more than his work with Gong!
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:14pm V Priceless:

Hackett still doing fine work - I think his departure from the big G was more critical than PG's, IMHO.
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:16pm The Pot Man:

PG1 V TRICK OF THE TAIL - I much prefer Trick to the 1st PG album!
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:16pm Tony Coulter:

@ The Pot Man: In the case of Hillage, I far prefer him with Gong. I do like "Fish Rising" though.
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:17pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

Hillage's "Fish Rising" is the best of both worlds: basically a solo LP, but with all of the classic Gong lineup (minus Daevid) playing on it...
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:17pm βrian:

Clarinet or oboe?
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:18pm Tony Coulter:

Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:18pm The Pot Man:

which album had his version of Hurdy Gurdy Man on?
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:19pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

That was "L".
  Tue. 7/7/15 2:19pm Dean:

Can't get started in the pre-PG/post-PG Genesis dispute, nor the Yes/solo matter. My tastes tend to be conservative. But Hillage: as Cw-e notes, FR is pretty much a Gong album, and one listens to Gong for Gong, Hillage for Hillage. Khan remains masterful. The solo albums are hit-miss, but the recent issues of live shows from the '70s are killer. I also enjoy System 7.

HGM was on L.

Clarinet by a long shot.
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:20pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:20pm The Pot Man:

didn't like the System 7 stuff - Hillage doing Beats and House music - no thanks!
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:21pm βrian:

What a nice, silky set this is!
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:21pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

System 7 live completely blew me away a couple of years ago, total mastery...
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:22pm V Priceless:

not taking anything away from Gabriel, or Banks, mind you - it's just that Hackett was a cornerstone in the compositional element; it's obvious to hear the slide after "Wind and Wuthering"...though I dig "And Then There Where Three" and "Duke"...the challenging musical element (to my ear, at least) started waning after Steve's departure...
  Tue. 7/7/15 2:22pm Dean:

Hillage started the trends, and I give him props. Listen to System 7 with Rovo, Phoenix Rising (get it?). Killer.
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:22pm βrian:

Does it inspire morsures d'amour?
  Tue. 7/7/15 2:23pm Dean:

"Oboe d'amour" sounds so much more tasteful than "love oboe."

"St. Radigunds" is the name of the street the band lived on in a shared house during their student days in Canterbury, one which I regularly cycle past.
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:30pm Tony Coulter:

I love all three of their albums. A (relatively) little-known branch in the Canterbury family tree.
  Tue. 7/7/15 2:31pm Dean:

So, Radigunds Street?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/7/15 2:32pm doctorjazz:

Really nice show.
  Tue. 7/7/15 2:32pm Dean:

America, fuck yeah!

Aaam-da. 'Murika!

@Dean "St. Radigunds Street", named after a female Saxon saint who renounced a life of privilege to help lepers.
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:33pm Tony Coulter:

@ doctorjazz: Thanks!!!
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:33pm βrian:

I was reading that lepers are a real problem on the Golden Gate Bridge.
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:34pm Tony Coulter:

You can always tell a leper by their spots.
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:34pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

@Tony Yeah, some Canterbury scene purists don't want to talk about Spirogyra, see them as a separate entity whose only link to Canterbury was a geographical one (whereas Egg, National Health, etc. had no direct geographical links but are considered quintessentially "Canterbury"). But Barbara Gaskin went on to sing with Hatfield and the North, and Geoffrey Richardson from Caravan was briefly in late-period Spirogyra, so they were definitely part of the soup...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/7/15 2:34pm Carmichael:

Big America fan here. I used to play in a similar style band. We moved the "smooth" slider all the way to 11.
  Tue. 7/7/15 2:35pm Dean:

Well, actually, they're a problem *off* the GG Bridge (which I can see when I step outside my office).

There's no Ave. Radigunds, then? No Radigunds Hwy.?
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:37pm Tony Coulter:

St. Radigunds & the North
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:40pm βrian:

I keep trying to scoot, but Tony keeps reeling me in.
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:40pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

There is a St. Radigunds Road down in Dover. She was popular in these parts!

Richard Sinclair from Caravan used to show up for jams and parties at the Spirogyra house, and Martin C recently caught up with him in Italy. A couple of members of Spirogyra ended up in one of his bands before he left England. And his first (unrecorded) band post Hatfield was called "Sinclair and the South" (Bruford was involved in one gig). OK, enough of this Canterbury scene geek-out, i'm going to sit back and enjoy this Curtis Mayfield!
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:43pm βrian:

I'm tootling down St. Radigunds now. Just passed The Dolphin ...
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:43pm V Priceless:

@ Tony - nice job revisiting the soul groove!
  Tue. 7/7/15 2:44pm Dean:

I distinctly remember wandering into Middle Earth Records in Downey, CA, while National Health was playing over the system, pre-first album. The clerks identified the band to me and indicated Bruford was drumming. Must have been an early tape. Middle Earth was, so the story goes, the home of Amazing Korneyfone.

@βrian Google Streetview? Or for real?
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:45pm βrian:

Oh, look. There's the Jolly Sailor.
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:46pm βrian:

Yep, I'm still on the isthmus.
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:46pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

@βrian Don't forget the headshop on the corner...
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:46pm βrian:

Hah. Skunkworks!
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:49pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

@βrian: You're following the line of the old city wall. The old Northgate used to arch over the street between Skunkworks and The Jolly Sailor. Further down was the 19th century red-light district (closest to the military barracks), disreputable music halls, etc. Now it's just drunk students...
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:50pm βrian:

The Jolly Sailor has a U.S. flag in the corner window. I'm perplexed.
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:51pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

I think there was some kind of 4th of July themed event (with a bluegrass band, etc.)
  Tue. 7/7/15 2:53pm Dean:

They have a Fourth of July in England?
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:53pm βrian:

Looks like a fun place to explore by bike...
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:53pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

No, we skip from the 3rd to the 5th.
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:53pm Looms:

Very nice show, thank you.
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:53pm βrian:

@Dean. What, do you think the skip a day?
  Tue. 7/7/15 2:54pm Dean:

I skip from the third to the fifth, too. Boy are my ankles tired.
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:54pm listener james from westwood:

Enchanting program, Tony; thanks for stopping by for a spell!!
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:54pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

@βrian: Indeed, Canterbury's great for cycling. All kinds of quirky shortcuts, etc. And a nightmare to drive around, according to my driving friends. Medieval walled cities just aren't very car-compatible.
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:54pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, Looms! A late-inning hello as well!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 7/7/15 2:55pm Michael:

Lovely show TC - Thanks!
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:55pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, Michael!!
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:55pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

Thanks, Tony, really loved the last hour, wish I'd tuned in earlier. Have a great week...
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:55pm V Priceless:

thanks for a swell show, TC!
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:56pm βrian:

In Wisconsin we have medieval walled politicians.
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:57pm βrian:

Yes, thanks Sir Courtly Tone.
Avatar Tue. 7/7/15 2:57pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, everyone!! See you all next time!
