A freind whose opinion I sometimes trust saw this duo of rock royalty at Music Fest last weekend and liked what he heard. The first song I listened to was pretty bad, but this one has some things going for it: good melodies, harmonies, and chording. It’s too long and proggy in places, and perhaps owes too much to the White Album and Pink Floyd. Whoever made the video has worshipped too long at Terry Gilliam’s altar. It mostly just makes me want to go back and watch the real thing.
Chernobyl started this week on HBO. I’ve always been fascinated by this disaster, and the abandonment of Pripyat. The first episode was fantastic, I thought. Who’s watching with me?
