music stuff 

i can't belive its ten years since kurt cobain died. i remember clearly because i was recovering from some jerk assualting me in a shitty nightclub; probably not a bloggable story....bob copper has died. respect due. see thecopperfamily.com...mary lou lord is playing machester at the end of may; i will be there and i'm hoping to ask her who the four kims are in his indie world (this has been a subject of far too much debate for far too long).... xrrf.blogspot.com (amongst many other sites) has information on the glastonbury nonsense. perhaps i'm just bitter becuase i didnt even try to get a ticket but grrrrr.... new pj harvey album out soon.... i'm very excited about seeing the butchies play in atlanta next week.... i'm still loving the wrens.... we've been discussing childhood rhymes and i remembered the rudest song in the world when i was about 6 was the one that went "bum, tit, tit, bum, tit, tit, play the willy banjo"

well trusted sources tell me you should try and see abner burnett "a prize purveyor of eccentric musica Americana, has a musical sweep that may at first seem baffling - he's made choral settings of Jack Kerouac poems and for many years played in a blues trio in his hometown of Odessa, Texas - but the eclecticism is unified by a singular wit and intelligence. The new album Sal Si Puedes is a defining moment and his strongest collection of original songs to date. Abner Burnett has now retired from his law practice and owns a farm in Mexico that sells trees, ornamental shrubbery and medicinal herbs."
