Saw this bloke strappin’ on the dilly bag:

Please don't let this pic be misunderstood.

Please don’t let this pic be misunderstood.

I didn’t have my scopes with me so wasn’t sure but as I was heading out the parking lot I spot this on the nightclub next door:



So I went back and captured the bloke.

Rockodial Hunter has left The Hall.

  1. I will let someone else guess the band that must have shown up in this movie. Yesterday morning I read some article in the New York Times on REM bassist Mike Mills’ obsession with fantasy sports leagues. He was cheerfully geeky about the whole thing. Later in the day I was at Nordstrom’s, when what do I hear playing over their sound system but an REM deep cut. Don’t ask me what song it was; it sounded like just about every other early REM song whose title I don’t know.

    I don’t know about the song, but that’s not a ute that the guy’s driving, it’s a van. A ute is a car based pick-up truck like a Chevy El Camino or a Ford Ranchero that’s very popular Down Under.

    Also, I just remembered that there’s an article about Eric Burdon in the latest issue of MOJO to hit the shores here. He’s got a new album out.

  4. Thanks for the tip — had not seen the Mike Mill story — also I heard “River of Dreams” in a CVS on Friday and laughed out loud!

  5. Rockodial, my thoughts are with you and your mates Down Under since reading that Christine Amphlett, singer for The Divinyls (“I Touch Myself”), died of breast cancer and MS at age 53.


    She was a great…woman.

  6. Oh my, Rockodial is going to be furious that you pulled a pince nez on him. Guard your brisket!

    Think yore clever mate? Haven’t seen you lately throwin’ backa Foster’s in the pub! A ute is anything I say it is! Watch yer back mate before I add “blokes that can’t spell ‘disco’ ” to my list o’ prey.

    Thanks mate.

    Awww….man. That bums me out. I don’t know why, but I really like the What a Life! album. I liked it so much, I went and saw them. they opened for Southern Death Cult, and I left while they were boring me to tears, but Christina Amphlett was terrific and I swear she made every guy there think she was performing just for him. It was kinda weird and I’ve never seen anyone else do that. Boy, cancer and MS both; that really sucks.

    I’m still trying to place the song. Sort of Hot Chip voice but more likely some Ben Gibbard project.

  11. An old friend posted an unreleased cover of “I Touch Myself” that some of you may dig:
