Earl greyhound i'm on jupiter waving my arms at you: earl greyhound live at the calhoun school
The music that they let course through and out of their bodies is from on high, from where the mountain snows are the purest and where the dirt's the bitterest. It's the sound of a Trans-am kicking buckets full of gray gravel and driveway dust into our faces as it peels away to carry its Hendrix and 80s arena rock-loving passengers off to do some bowling, hit the county fair for some hellraising and then cap the night off with some drunk driving. It reminds of those days when there was nothing faux pas or illegal about having the steering wheel in one hand and an Old Style in the other. You could smoke in hospitals and you could get away with living based on animal instincts just a little bit more. It's about wolves chasing the day, or running away from it. It's about nothing but the most natural urges and sensations that usually just get shrugged away and forgotten about because in a daily life that - at most - consists of a long or short commute to a shitty desk job, soulness responsibilities, household repairs, domesticity, trips to the Laundromat, take-out meals and the occasional affair or stress release they serve no purpose. They cannot be acted upon. These Earl Greyhound songs are our shady nights and the fantasies of our inner Jaggers and Hunter S's. These are the bullet holes in the wall, the ones that have great stories. These are the eyes that strain when they step out into the bright lights of the morning and Thomas singing, "You know I love you daddy," and having it sound like a seedy and wonderful revolution, even if it's temporary.
I would be interested in the criteria for categorizing the keys. In addition, I have particularly enjoyed your more recent blogs as I believe they have more universal appeal. Individual track commentary is excellent if you're going to handicap that track. Ever since Iowa, I have respected your commentary and your database.
