I'm with you, Zopa. Punchy bass and two interesting, interweaving guitar lines.

That set was kinda like shopping the Clearance aisle at Walmart, an odd collection of disparate pieces with the red and white Clearance sticker the only commonality.

Handy: oh
  4:16pm Listener Robert:

Didn't "Spilt the Beans" remind you of Y. Bekhirst? (And didn't someone claiming to be Y. Bekhirst come forward a few years ago?)

"The windows in my house spill the beans." Makes me think it's about voyeurs looking in.

I meant Sting, that guy from the Police band.
Avatar 4:30pm Irwin:

They had a hit called "Rocks Anne."

sting sings and plays guitar

I don't believe it.

He said he was Sting.

Shook his hand one time and got a dirty look.

Always thought it was Stink
Avatar 4:35pm Irwin:

flash: That's HIM.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm Ike:

Pretty sure you saw the washed-up wrestler Sting, not the singer. That's understandable. It's a common name.
  4:35pm flashbazbo:

To clarify it was probably me not him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37pm dave wuz here:

if sting and karen carpenter had just shared a sandwich they would both be alive today.

Whoa, Cactus. Takes me back to high school.

The Police band that sang "Galway Bay" in the Pogues' musical Christmas cards? That was Sting?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38pm G:

"Judge a Book" -- covered all the time by live bands here in New Orleans. Will probably hear it at least once at JazzFest in April...
Avatar 4:38pm Irwin:

Willie Dixon classic.

Rhythm section: Carmine Appice and Tim Bogert.
Avatar 4:39pm AnAnonymousParty:

Police had a band here. didn't work out well, they had to keep stopping mid song and write each other tickets for disturbing the peace. Made for a great drinking game though.
Avatar 4:40pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...Did you think @ the time you & others like you might be making some sort of template for Stoner Metal ??

...Sorry...didn't understand a word you just said...
  4:40pm PJ:

This Cactus cover reminds me why I dislike "blues rock". (Apologies to all who are enjoying it.)
Avatar 4:40pm Jack:

And here I thought it was Beck, Bogart and Appice

Houseguests coming Friday for the rest of Mardi Gras. The housekeeper and I spent hours fixing things up here, moving rugs and couches etc. I hate when the housekeeper doesn't leave till after Irwin starts. She comes weekly on Wednesdays... Such is life...

Jim McCarty ?? - the Murikan gittarist not yARdbiRdS drummer...
Avatar 4:42pm AnAnonymousParty:

And the drummer was a ham-fisted guy that used nightsticks instead of regular drumsticks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Ike:

Agreed @PJ. Now Wire, here's a band that knows how to rock cleanly and purely, without getting too much smegma all over everything.

Avatar 4:48pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Doesn't Irwin vacuum for you if you play long Jazzes ??...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50pm Ike:

The singer Sting is still in pretty good shape, perhaps working out so that people will think he actually has all the tantric sex that he claims to have.
Avatar 4:53pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...or not have...
Avatar 4:55pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...aka - Sting - where is thy Little Death...

Irwin. How did you answer me before my post? I so did not see yours at all. Weird

Hello Irwin and everyone. I'm free for a bit and ready to groove out!
Avatar 5:12pm Little Danny:

Hands down one of my fave Blakey recordings, "So Tired." Sam Jones did a great version, too. Should be have been a more-covered Bobby Timmons composition. Fine bones it's got.
Avatar 5:14pm Irwin:

Timmons - so good as a keyboardist and composer. Died young.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm Mr. Pumpy:

Yeah, what Fredericks said.

How's the week treating you, Mr. Pumpy?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm Mr. Pumpy:

Came home for the first time since Sunday...and rushed to open a window for some air, only to slice my finger open as part of the window frame broke. Pointer finger on my dominant hand. Real fun finding no band-aids and trying to cut gauze and tape with that thing gushing. Anyhow...typing with my middle finger, just putting that out there in the event I come across a bit salty.
Avatar 5:25pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...aka - if it ain't baroque, he don't need a fix...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm Mr. Pumpy:

Not too bad, Handy. One day at a time. Back at work after taking the week off last week, so that's cool. How about you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm zivilars:

Loving the current set!!!
Avatar 5:26pm Irwin:

I'd fuck it up completely if I played more Cactus, eh wot?
Avatar 5:27pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...like opening a window 1st time in Spring - & actual air circulation blows dust around in the smoke alarm & the fire dept. comes by...only w/ blood...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm Mr. Pumpy:

@Revolution...whaaaaaaa?! Ahhh...yeah, I didn't have to deal with the fire dept. at least. All good now, but what a kick in the haggis!
  5:30pm spodiodi:

to your tetnus shot, Mr. Pumpy -- hope you mend quickly. i had an old lead window bite my left index finger twice recentlyish (now have a boss scar tho)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm Handy Haversack:

Ow, shit, Mr. P, that sucks. I am more frequently than one would recommend gushing blood and trying to apply some half-assed bandage one handed and all alone. Part of my charm?

All good otherwise. One cocktail in. Kate comes back from visiting her folks in Seattle tonight. I'm kind of planning a trip to Nashville (Nashville!) for September -- half-assedly. And the domestication of the dog proceeds apace.
  5:33pm Dave Miss:

Popper Dobby n Jonesy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34pm Mr. Pumpy:

Handy...one brew in. 8.2 percenters. One good thing about staying at the old man's is I drink far less...so that's something!

Nashville...sweet! I need to plan a trip. It's been far too long. Even though I'm single, I shouldn't stop going places. Nashville sounds like a great trip.
  5:34pm Dave Miss:

Kat Edminson has new album too

@HH, at least she got some good weather in Sea Wash for a change.
