Planet Earth
And the muscular cyborg German dudes
Dance with sexy French Canadians
While the overweight Americans
Wear their patriotic jumpsuits


Hard to believe that it was almost 25!!! years ago that I went and saw them based solely on hearing Going The Distance and seeing the accompanying video on MTV. Tiny bar. Never forget how they played it VERY early in the show and then how immediately after, lead singer John McCrea tells the crowd “alright we played our MTV hit, everyone who showed up to hear just that one song can leave now”. People were leaving as he said this. All time good show.

"What a live an bamba yay, when the two sevens clash..."

My good old prophet Marcus Garvey prophesized it
St Jago de la Vega and Kingston is going to meet,
And I can see with mine own eyes
It's only a housing scheme that divides

Marcus Garvey was inside
Of Spanish Town District Prison
And when they were about to take him out
He prophesized and said
"As I pass through this gate
No other prisoner shall enter and get through"
And so it is until now
The gate has been locked
What!

i love that album. 1982?

carl precoda’s guitar!

steve wynn’s lou reed is pretty funny too!
kendra the bass player was a longtime family friend and although she was older than me like everyone else I had a big crush on her. this helped balance my punk rock mind, i had their original demos on cassette back as a kid, good stuff..

if you pick up the rhino reissue of tdow&r, it’s got a bunch of pretty good bonus tracks on it - maybe from the first e.p. + demos?

i knew a guy who had a record store in philly & he knew them (at cal davis?) & had some good stories ( drug related...) but i forgot what they were.:foreheadslap:

I had a dream of the ocean blue
Sweet and warm always there for you
She's so happy, She's so lovely, She's so free
And in my traveling I find
I need Her waves just to sooth my mind
Cuz I'm neva, no not ever, never at ease
This country is very, very nice, but it's not the place for I
Absence makes the heart grow fonder they say
Good to know I have a resting place in the sun
Yeah in the sun

And everywhere is so very bright
Shining clear it's no ordinary light
Majesty and power, give it to She
And in the night I would sit on Her shore
Trying to give but I'm always taking more
Of Her magic and Her beauty, all Her mystery
These mountains are very very fine
But I could neva be satisfied
Till I am barefoot once again
Laughing in the sun with you my friend
In the sun....yeah in the sun

These mountains are very very fine
But I could neva be satisfied
Till I am barefoot once again
Laughing in the sun with you my friend
In the sun.....yeah in the sun....where I and I from
Tropic vibe, don't you be scared, where I and I from
Let me take you there
Tropic vibe, don't you be scared, where I and I from
Let me take you there
Juice from the mango, milk from the coconut
Tropic vibe is the vibe I really love
Juice from the mango, milk from the coconut
Tropic vibe is the vibe I really love
Love I love I love....de tropic vibe
Love I love I love yeah
Love I love I love....de tropic vibe
Love I love I love it yeah

Some awesome soul put that Lost video On the Road with Spike on youtube. I could just put the song up but screw it, let's throw up the whole video as it's a long time favorite that the VHS ate long, long ago:


G-Land section: 51:20
Frank Black - Calistan

Great song. Background of it is good too. :shaka:

Said it was ninety-six degrees in the shade
Ten thousand soldiers on parade
Taking I and I to meet a big fat boy
Sent from overseas
The queen employ
Now excellency before you I come
With my representation
You know where I'm coming from

They caught me on the loose
Trying to be free
And they show I a noose
On the cotton tree
Entertainment for you
Martyrdom for me
