Streak's blog misses Streak, but less sad.
"nobody told us that the bastards were hereall the rogues and the scoundrels are shedding their tearsno, nobody told us that the cameras were here"
I've been meaning to give them a listen ever since Will Johnson from the band toured with David Bazan and Vic Chesnutt on the Undertow Orchestra tour.
Yeah, I have "Fort Recovery" and "Love You Just the Same" and both are excellent. They were one of the highlights of the ACL fest for both SOF and myself.
Good deal. On another note, you might like James McMurtry. He won Album of the Year and Song of the Year at the Americana Awards Show earlier this year. A few free mp3s here (scroll down), including a nice protest tune.
Yeah, WJ, love McMurtry. I really regret not catching him at the first ACL, but I really didn't know that much about him. I love his songwriting and while I don't have that much of his original stuff, I have several covers by other artists. Lucy Kaplansky does a great cover of "Off and Running," and Robert Earl Keen does two different McMurtry songs: "Levelland" (a fabulous song) and "Out here in the Middle" (perhaps even better) with the great lines: We got justification for wealth and greedAmber waves of grain and bathtub speedNow we even got StarbucksWhat else you needOut here in the middleWhere the center's on the rightAnd the ghost of William Jennings Bryan preaches every nightThanks for the link, though. I had "We can't make it here" but not the other two.
This is for you Streak and you Wasp.
