A Man Who Has Nothing In Particular To Recommend Him Discusses All Sorts of Subjects at Random as Though He Knew Everything

Battle Of The Bands!

In this corner, my new favorite band that doesn’t exist anymore, Jellyfish!

And in this corner, the re-assembled wreckage of a band that actually made me some money, along with the public debut of the heir spanking the plank.

The heir is so very much better than that now. A year is a long time. For a young man.

  1. Very good — early exposure to the masters may inoculate the boy against the taint of bad teenage music. I'm adopting the same strategy with my five year-old. This morning he's been walking around singing I Wanna Be With You by the Raspberries.

  2. The Badfinger catalogue is finally being remastered & reissued with bonus tracks October 25. If you sample the last track, the demo version of No Matter What, I think you guys sound just as good.

  3. G Bob!
    The Rasberries were great fun. I'm always fascinated to see what hoary old tune interests my teen son from when I was a teenager. Learning No Matter What was his idea.

    No Matter What is the song I'd point out to explain to a Martian what the radio was like in the early seventies.

    It occurred to me when I was re-watching that video that I'll never play music with those guys again. They're five hours away now since I moved. A melancholy thought.

  4. Daughter number 1 approved heartily ~(play it again dad!) number two just ried to eat laptop…one out of two ain't bad.
