'Satisfaction' would have been a good cover for the Lizards.
Avatar 7:45pm Bill Mac:

Thanks NGH!
Avatar 7:46pm Bill Mac:

@BiUK - I was just watching Devo cover Satisfaction... first time I ever saw them they covered that... blown away

I love covers especially when I don’t recognize it right away
Avatar 7:51pm Bill Mac:

When you think of it, Sparks was doing new wave stuff years before these bands were
Avatar 7:52pm Franco Twinkie:

Okay, excuse me for not jumping on this sooner, but I just came in from driving around in the miserable heat. Before me sits the 45 of Summer time Blues by The Flying Lizards,with the picture of a woman throwing a glass of milk into her own face! that's what I''m gonna do now.
Avatar 7:54pm Bill Mac:

I'm for a glass of milk in the face right about now!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Devo predated most of what we know as 'Punk' proper...much attention to Jerry Casale being motivated by witnessing KentState to do something positive to counter the negative...
Avatar 7:59pm Bill Mac:

Since they were from Cleveland I was wondering whther they ever shared bills with Pere Ubu when they were coming up
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I can see Beefheart albums being passed around...
Avatar 8:00pm Franco Twinkie:

First time I saw Devo was in 1977 at the Hollywood Palladium with Blondie and the Weirdos. They were so far ahead of everyone else it was shocking. The audience was dumbfounded with their mouthed hanging open during their set.

I like overtone singing.
Avatar 8:11pm Bill Mac:

I was expecting a better segue....
Avatar 8:12pm Brian in UK:

As Benny Hill sang on Ernie (the Fastest Milkman in the West)

She said she'd like to bathe in milk, he said, "All right, sweetheart,"
And when he'd finished work one night he loaded up his cart
He said, "D'you want it pasturize? Cause pasturize is best,"
She says, "Ernie, I'll be happy if it comes up to my chest."
Avatar 8:13pm Brian in UK:

Great to hear you Bill. Time for some shuteye.
Avatar 8:14pm Bill Mac:

..... is this thing on?
Avatar 8:14pm Franco Twinkie:

I was at the Starwood too! But it would be years before I met Chresti. The L.A. County Sheriff was also in attendace that night itching to kick some ass.
Avatar 8:15pm Bill Mac:

@Brian - you shoulda followed the joke with a 'thank you and good nght'
'thank you and good nght, Brian'
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm Parq:

It tells you pretty much everything you need to know about me that I can't hear "John Henry" without thinking of the Smothers Bothers version.
Avatar 8:30pm Bill Mac:

The soundtrack in yr head should always have a dash o humor in it.
  8:33pm chresti:

Have to go pick up a rental -be back in a few!
  8:44pm V Priceless:

@ Bill - u get my note about Strawbs big 50th 3-day shindig in NJ next April? Sounds like all breathing members past and present should be there!
Avatar 8:45pm Bill Mac:

I did! I checked the website and nothing specific has been posted yet. Are they playing the strand in Lakewood NJ?
  8:46pm V Priceless:

Yes I think that’s the venue.
Avatar 8:47pm Bill Mac:

Not far from work.... I've seen some of your posts coming from Monty Hall... how is it we never met?
  8:47pm V Priceless:

Well I know John Ford and Blue Weaver will be there, for starters...
Avatar 8:49pm Bill Mac:

I saw John Ford with them the last time they toured with the Grave New World Band back in the 80s
  8:50pm V Priceless:

I dunno Bill! Good question! I’m sneaking in to the next H&M, if nothing pops up sooner!
Avatar 8:51pm Bill Mac:

Judging by FB, I think you have a 1/2 dozen connections to get in there.
  8:52pm V Priceless:

Yes! I was at all those shows! We became good friends. He lives here on Long Island. Did many gigs as part of his backing band. Super guy and huge talent.
  8:53pm V Priceless:

good point. But I hate to ask people for favors. LOL Nice Kinks, by the way!
Avatar 8:54pm Bill Mac:

I remember hearing that he lived in NY. Real nice that you got to play with him.... miss the Kinks, I got there late, this was the first of their songs that got stuck on me.
I'll get you in no prob
  9:00pm V Priceless:

that sounds like a deal, Bill! Looking forward to it! Kinks rule. Was fortunate to catch them regularly from ‘77 to their last tour in ‘95.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm Parq:

I thought that sounded like Mahmoud Ahmed
Avatar 9:18pm Bill Mac:

I haven't touched the Ethiopiques stuff in ages.... truly great stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19pm Parq:

The time he shared the stage with the Ex and others at Lincoln Center was far and away one of the few truly jaw-dropping-open shows Ive seen.
Avatar 9:21pm Bill Mac:

Sorry I missed those years where Ex was in cahoots with all those African artists.

If only I had stuck with the accordion lessons my parents made me take as a kid...
Avatar 9:29pm Bill Mac:

Who knew that it would become kinda cool
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:31pm Parq:

I saw XTC only once, on the Black Sea tour, but all things considered, I fee lucky to have seen them at all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32pm Rich in NC:

Nice show going on Bill!
Avatar 9:33pm Bill Mac:

I saw that tour and the Drums and Wires Tour,,, Didn't much like them the first time, but I was ready for them the next time-then blip- no more touring

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42pm Scraps.:

I want my swag! .... actually, I’m a little worried now, since “your swag is coming” message is now taken down. Has anyone else still hasn’t got their swag?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42pm melinda:

Bran Flakes, yay
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43pm melinda:

@Scraps someone mentioned a few days ago that they didn't have theirs.
  9:43pm V Priceless:

I haven’t, but Joe said my shipping label printed 7/26, so it should be going out soon
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm Parq:

Whoa, they're mixing the Scott original and Irwin's Raymond Scott Orchestrette together there. Love it.
