Get Me To The World On Time

So Barack Obama made it through his inauguration, then.

There’s a big burden of expectation on him.

Too big.

Speaking of psychedelia (as I was last time.) On You Tube that night, linked from The Nice clip, I also found The Electric Prunes.

Magic.

This one has that tape-played-backwards sound in it and some echoes of the Tornado’s Telstar. It furnished me with the perfect title for yesterday’s post.

{ Edit:- The first link seems to have been removed for some sort of copyright violation. I’ve added a second.

End of edit. }

And this one gave me today’s.

    Love this band, so I do. Saw them play Glasgow a couple of times (and shook hands with Jim Lowe and Mark Tulin). This was after they reformed, of course, but their newer albums are not bad either, even if they have a tendency to drift off into Tom Pettyness. As for ‘Underground’ and ‘Mass in F Minor'(yes, I love the Axelrod stuff): you just don’t have a record collection unless you own them. Works of genius.

    Did you know that Jim Lowe engineered the first Sparks album and produced the second? It explains a lot.
