I gotta wash this ZZ Top / Thorogood shit out of my consciousness. It reminds me of Lou Reed’s words, back when his music sounded like it was supposed to: “And since I don’t have to choose I guess I won’t…”
eMusic just released two live Pink Floyd tunes, Interstellar Overdrive and Nick’s Boogie from Peter Whitehead’s Tonite Let’s All Make Love In London documentary. Most of us have probably seen it, but if you haven’t it is a pretty nifty time/place capsule that includes a healthy dose of The Floyd before they officially released anything. The YouTube clip is from the film.
I immediately downloaded the tunes upon release and though I enjoyed them enough, I must say that they aren’t nearly as satisfying as listening while watching a hunched Syd meld with his guitar while the rest of The Floyd looks mildly unclear on their own concept.
Oh and shots of painted boobs help too.
So if you’re tiring of deciding who’s dumber, “dumb or dumber”, take a break from your workaday, crank up The Floyd and fly your freak flag high and strong.
