For our seventh show of the second season, Drew returns from vacation, and we're joined in the studio by local musician Ashley Peacock. Thanks for joining us on the show, Ash!
LATER THIS SUMMER:
(the listings follow this format: Artist Name / Song Name / Album Name / Album Year / Comments)
Men At Work / Overkill
/ Brazil / 1998 re-release / Drew: Ashley says that these guys are
all professors in Australia now. I dunno... Bruce: That's
rubbish. One or two of them are. There were 6 members of this band. I'm sure
the others are farming goat or something. Never cared for these buggers when
I was young, but this song is really well done.
John Walsh & The Sinkholes / I Got You / Antimatter Eisenhower / 1997 / Drew: Buddy of mine from WAAY back. Nice poppy music.
REM / Folk Song 89 / Stand
CD3 single / 1988 / Bruce: A nice and semi-rare acoustic version of
one of their more inconsequential lyrics. The video for the album version
had a topless Michael Stipe, with black bars covering his nippleage.
Foreigner / Juke
Box Hero / The Very Best and Beyond / 1992 / Drew: Bruce loves Foreigner.
Bruce: And Foreigner loves Drew, so by the transitory
property of love, Bruce loves Drew.
/ Little Known II / Trespass 491 / 2001 / Bruce: Ash said this was
the least radio-friendly cut on this, his latest CD, so we went for it. And
it had some parts of "Lady" by Styx in there too...
Dream Girls / Everybody Let's Party / unreleased / 2001 / Bruce:
"I just can't get enough. I just can't get enough..."
Ashley Peacock / Girl With the Serious Face / Live, in studio! / 2001 / Drew: An awesome in-studio performance by Ashley.
Cowboy Junkies /
I'm So Open / Open / 2001 / Bruce: When did the Cowboy Junkies decide
to be happy again?
Squeeze / Squabs on
45 / B-Side to Labelled with Love / 1982 / Bruce: Who knew they had
so many tracks near the same tempo?!? Fun.
Ashley Peacock / Etcetera Whatever / What It Takes To Please You -- A Tribute To Over the Rhine / 2001 / Drew: Ashley's contribution to the Tribute CD project that should be completed within 30 days.
Peter Gabriel / Shaking
The Tree / Shaking the Tree / 1990 / Drew: Peter Gabriel's music is
so richly textured and melodic. I just wish I could find the studio version
of OVO! Bruce: Yeah, and I wish I could find my washed up trailer after
the floods last night. Well, we all have dreams.
