    Back through the decades when they were at their best I most certainly did not get it. I liked my rock to rock and remember hearing them on occasion, a few minutes was enough of what seemed plinky, plonky, wishy, washy, folky, country, mixed up background music with little direction and few vocals.

    Now as I listen with the headphones on I do get it and can imagine sitting in the California desert sun, imbibing some substances, drinking a beer and lying back as they grooved on for a few hours.
    Don't roll with a pig in poo. You get covered in poo and the pig likes it.

    There was an op-ed piece in the New York Times yesterday (I know I know) by Bret Stephens

    Donald Trump and the Damage Done
    A little part of it in everyone.


    The title is a reference to Neil Young's song The Needle And The Damage Done which is about the death of his guitarist Danny Whitten (of Crazy Horse) from heroin. In the fourth verse:

    I've seen the needle and the damage done
    A little part of us in everyone


    This was very far from a hit record (just a poor selling album track) but it made me think about singer/composers whose lyrics are quoted more generally - with the outstanding example being Bob Dylan.

    But Neil Young? Not too bad at all.

    Remember out plodding/running around Goyt Valley when this track came on a few years back now.

    Ahh, Jon Hopkins is great! Hadn't come across this before, lovely stuff. Him and the likes of Nils Frahm and Olafur Arnolds are making some really beautiful, interesting music right now. This put me in mind of some of Penguin Cafe's stuff: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DKL_9qd_gNw

    Thanks for the introduction to Pengiun Cafe, Hank. Its one of those groups that I've been aware existed without knowing what they did. Will check them out now!
    The Jon Hopkins track was from an album he curated called Late Night Tales. Essential listening if you like this kind of music.
