Work has been getting a bit outta control as of late and doesn't look to be slowing down anytime soon. So for now, I guess I'm out of business here. I will try to post from time to time, but unless something changes, that's about it. Suppose I could find time here and again on the weekends... so don't give up just yet.
Now for the song...
The Fall - "Mansion" - 1985
(Buy The Fall - This Nation's Saving Grace from Amazon.com)
As everyone knows by now, John Peel passed earlier this week. There's really nothing much for me to say about that other than everything that has been said already... so R.I.P. John. Strange though that nothing much was said in the blogging community that I've been able to find about an equally brilliant man who passed just a week earlier... That man was Greg Shaw of Bomp! Records. Check out Bomp! here: (BOMP!) Both are great losses to the music world and my deepest sympathies go out to their families... they will be missed.
John Peel was probably the main reason The Fall ever made it to radio, and so, for that reason, I chose this song. If you play it loud enough, maybe John will hear it from that great big mansion in the sky.
Thanks for listening,
