tenderly (again)

always had quite a spot for captain beefheart and his magic band even though almost everything he's done i've struggled to listen to so here's something i only bought cos roddy frame said it was his favourite song in some long ago nme thing and aw gee it's beautiful.

originally posted a couple of years ago and if i had my records handy i'd've played too much time off of the same lp - i'll dig it out when i'm home...

let's start the week all quiet and gorgeous and remember that we can find the tenderest soul in the most unlikely spots

captain beefheart - my head is my only house unless it rains

goggle eyed

sorry it's been a while sweet dears but oooh what with this and that assorted what have yous and the obligatory duck feeding there's been barely a mo to spare and what moes that have squeezed through have been filled with the first series of breaking bad on the computey machine and they've been moes well worth squeezing in i can tells ya if decidedly dark squirmy and desperate. this ditty of true hugeness popped up in it too which made me even keener. do tune in if you're able

darondo - didn't i

is there anything else i should be sitting too close to and ruining my peepers?

there's a song that they sing...

now the first of december was covered with snow
and so was the turnpike from stockbridge to boston
lord, the berkshires seemed dreamlike on account of that frosting
With ten miles behind me and ten thousand more to go

with thanks to the always debonair mr mark fincher
