The best Husker Du cover you will ever hear.
Only angels have wings girl
And poets have all the words
The earth belongs to the two of us
And the sky belongs to the birds
You’ve given me so much happiness
That i’ll wrap up and give you this song
You gotta grab it with both hands
You gotta keep hanging on…
The cat walks to the window
And i hear the key turn in the door
No one knows and anything goes
And everything falls on the floor
The apartment starts shaking
And the roof opens up to the sun
The crows flying in parallel lines
And golly isn’t this great fun?
Laying in each other’s arms
We’re sleepy, we begin to nod
And we start to dream of grandiose things
Oh, god, oh, god, oh, god
You gotta keep hanging on
I think Madonna is pretty cool. I’d like to go record shopping with her and see what interests her.
May we never forget… Joey Ramone, RIP. I took this in 2009 when I took the trek to Mt Zion Cemetery to pay my respects to the greatest frontman of all time. #joeyramone #legend #punkicon #punk #mtzioncemetary #fuckcancer
And another from the Silverchair support. Man, we were pretty full-on to be opening for a band like that. I don’t even know how we got the support but it was one amazing experience. I lost it a bit at the end and I smashed my drums during the last song. I thought that was on YouTube but it’s not. Oh and yeah, I am only wearing a pair of boxer shorts cos it was hot as hell that night on stage and I was wearing jeans when i turned up. My chicken legs are on show but whatever, that’s rock n roll. The bass player threw his bass or something within the first few moments of the song starting and had to grab a second one quickly. It was quite chaotic being in this band.
That time I played drums for the Blood Sucking Freaks and we supported Silverchair and played in front of a sold out crowd of 3500 people. Seriously, times like that go by so quickly and they just don’t seem real. Was so bizarre. I should upload the whole gig to YouTube. I am aware I am a terrible drummer.
