Friday Random Ten

David Bowie "Love You Till Tuesday" David Bowie
Elvis Costello & Allen Toussaint "The Sharpest Thorn" The River in Reverse
Jon Langford "Invisible Man" Gold Brick
The Buzzcocks "I Don't Know What to Do with My Life" Peel Sessions
Waco Brothers "Out in the Light" Cowboy in Flames
Joan Armatrading "Lost the Love" What's Inside
Paul Simon "Under African Skies" Graceland

Otis Ball & the Chains "Hooray for Flowers" Time for a Change--Bar/None Sampler #2
Chris Mars "City Lights on Mars" Horseshoes and Hand Grenades

Weird. After a song from the album River in Reverse, on the next cut Jon Langford first sings, "There is a bridge where the river flows backwards." Spooky. Otherwise, mostly just strange.

I like the strangeness and the arc. Sorry no post today, but I'm in ATL for a Dirty Projectors show, which was pretty amazing. Hopefully I'll be able to write it up.
