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

Going Out Of Business, Music Industry Style

This video is accompanied by a Going Out Of Business sign on its YouTube page:

the eve of this milestone release, Belleruche announced that they are
saying farewell, or at least, “see you in a bit”; the close-knit trio
have decided to pursue individual creative and personal avenues after
eight hardworking, exhilarating and globetrotting years of Belleruche.

I remember there was a furniture store in the little town I grew up in. It had a going out of business sign in the window in big, block letters. It was painted on.

Me? I prefer my Minor Swing to be played by actual minors, thanks.

  1. My brother is a drummer. Drummers are born, not made. They twitch and tap and bang and pound from the time they are about 1 1/2 years old. All the time. They bang on furniture, floors, walls, tables, school desks, etc. Then they discover drumsticks. Then it all goes south. Then they drum on furniture, floors, walls, tables and desks with the drumsticks LOUDLY!! Constantly! Incessantly!

    Then they find out about perididdles and cymbals and drum heads and my oh my, bass drums. Big, hollow, LOUD bass drums. What's a person to do. His wife finally bought him an electronic drum set. Now all anyone hears is tippy, tapping out in the garage. Except for him. He has the earphones on and can hear the whole thing in thrumming stereo.

    His band plays stuff like:


    and some John Prine. Oh well. Just keep on tapping.
