New Bohemians was a 3-piece art-rock band on the local club circuit in Dallas in the mid-80s.  I was in a local band on the same circuit at the time.  They had a small but loyal following.  Edie was at a gig one night and being a bit tipsy started heckling the band, who went back at her saying something to the effect of "if you think you can do better, jump up here.  She did, killed it, and the rest is history.  She wasn't a professional singer at the time.  She joined NB, they added a guitar player, and put out the first album, which at the time was a pretty good offering in the mix of crap out there.

So...as the band said to her...if think you can do better, get up there.

Hey, I just got back- here's the report: The Rolling Stones "Satanic Majesties Request" LP was freakin' great, totally beloved by all. But most of the the folks back there I talked to were under the influence of some wicked good drugs! Form your own conclusions.

Wow. Not surprised you heathens miss the subliminal Christian message. 

And if you listen very hard, the truth will come to you at last:
Exactly 666 refrains in, you can CLEARLY hear him sing, "There's always The Son."

BAM! You just got punked by The Stranglers' "Always The Son" — a favorite played (& played & played & played) in revival tents worldwide.

Bonus Feature on original album sleeve notes:

What is there always?
A: The Sun
B: The Son
C: Thus, son
D: This song
E: This On (and on, and on, and on, and on...)

I thought it odd that they used a photo from their first US tour for that album cover.  Maybe it was a reference to the album title, saying: "Here we are - London Calling", plus using the layout design from Elvis' first album.

I understand how that could be true for quite a few different albums, including London Calling - it was pretty epic to me, especially added that I was at the concert where the cover photo was taken.  I guess it depends on how important music is to each individual.

I was working as a roofer in Texas during the summer of '81. We used to bring a small boom box up on the roof with us to listen to the radio while we worked.  One day, just before quitting time, "Rocket Man" came on the station we were listening to when Wade declared, "I'M A ROCKET-MAN!" and jumped off the roof. Broken ankle, trip to ER, and workman's comp—clearly that "smoke-break" he had in his car at lunchtime was more than the usual Marlboro Reds he usually smoked.  

This one's for you Wade—not the cleverest Rocket-Man out there.

Ugh, more derivative tripe.   Sorry, I just chafe at all the revisitation that goes on in the "creative" enterprises.  As a design professional, I can assure one and all that there is no creation in the redo.  Movies, TV shows, music, architecture, cuisine...pffff!!!  It's become all tripe; that's why cows have 3 stomachs, so they can continue to digest what that already ate.  

 
They have three stomachs so they can produce three times the tripe.
