Heya Meghan. You're going to Scotland? Awesome!! Are you hitting Ireland and England as well?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/9/18 1:21pm Meghan:

Just Scotland. Start in Edinburgh and finish in Glasgow. I only get to hang out in the Dublin airport for transfers

greetings Meghan, forest snorkelers
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/9/18 1:26pm Carmichael:

Still good. Edinburgh's wonderful, the Scottish Highlands are spectacular, and the brogue is indecipherable.

I grew up in southern Ireland, btw. My cousin is Scottish, and we both live in California now!

So, a certain lushness from the mid-80s - The Chameleons - Swamp Thing - 1986 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYNHjmnlZbA
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/9/18 1:35pm Meghan:

foreign_listener_K- That is ABSOLUTELY one of my all time favorite songs ever. I searched out that album for a long time because I used to borrow my brothers and needed my own copy
  Thu. 8/9/18 1:35pm foreign_listener_k:

Chameleons UK . not sure why that was wrong
  Thu. 8/9/18 1:37pm foreign_listener_k:

And I see you know
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/9/18 1:38pm Meghan:

oh yes..... brilliant!!!
  Thu. 8/9/18 1:45pm foreign_listener_k:

The youtube link has some interesting information about how this song was recorded - there was a certain echo in the mid 80s of actual craft making music worth listening to. And when it pays off, the result can be fantastic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/9/18 1:47pm Meghan:

wonder what other songs it was used in?!
  Thu. 8/9/18 1:54pm foreign_listener_k:

From the comment by Mark Saunders - ' I can't remember what the other two songs were that were recorded at the same time as Swamp Thing but this was by far the best song of the session and my favorite on the album. Such amazing guitar riffs and incredible mood.' Looking at the past tends to be that way - still, it was interesting to realize that this song was somewhat in reaction to getting lazy and piecing a song together - and it is really a good song for the mid-80s
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 8/9/18 1:57pm Sem:

Thanks, Ms. M.. Catch you and all next time 'round.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 8/9/18 1:58pm Stanley:

Tuning in late.
Bah!
But love this Pigbag disco thing going on here.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/9/18 1:58pm Meghan:

I'm throwing it in! I looked up how many times I've played it and I've only played it twice, which I must say surprised the hell out of me.
  Thu. 8/9/18 1:59pm Sigurður:

I'll repeat my comment from last week... Ohh Meghan
