Happy 46th birthday to The Zombies’ album Odessey and Oracle, released April 19, 1968 in the UK!
When I listen to it, I’m instantly transported back to autumn ‘74, sitting in my mate’s flat overlooking Woking Park and the leaves falling and turning gold and green and orange. We would be hanging out, writing songs together and plotting how we were going to make it. -Paul Weller (x)
Glad to have played a bit on the radio this morning (“Friends of Mine”). Did not know today was an anniversary. What an amazing record.
We don’t usually celebrate death anniversaries around these parts, but the 20 year mark of Kurt Cobain’s death is something to be acknowledged.
Here are a few snippets from 1991’s “The Year Punk Broke” which I watched over and over and over and over and over again with my very best friends during the early 1990s. These clips sum up the majority of my feelings about why Nirvana was a band for the ages: humor, absurdism, intellect, wild abandon, and throbbing musical thump of the nth degree.
