When two of them became Win.
Yep. So stop moaning.
. . . and even more perplexing is that fact that you suggest that I am being the bizarre and incoherent one here.
I know you are but what am I?
Sly & the Family Stone. I ignored them until this week because they didn't fit my expectations. Foolish me. I'm just listening to all their records on Spotify and I simply don't know what to expect next on each song. Listening to Everyday People now. Perfect. Never heard it until this week.
Edit: Is it wrong to compare them with Can (it's a better comparison than with Parliament)? I'm going to put Running Away and Moonshake on and then repeat and then repeat.
Edit more: I love trumpets.
Edit still more: On Underdog now. Blimey. Can now see where Gnarls Barkley are coming from. It's like a hole in my world has just been well filled.
Keeping on keeping on editing: Advice was the song that made me prick my ears up. Not just that rhythm - great but very of its time. That trumpet run - doesn't quite work but brilliantly so if you see what I mean. And those backing vocals - weirdly spooky on an upbeat song. Not a normal soul band. What's going on here? Very eclectic influences. Exciting stuff.
Why did i waste decades not listening The Clean? wtf was i thinking?
I know why as it goes, because i thought they would be like an indie crowded house.
Dirty rock style hippy i thought. Not so. Well, not what i've found yet. I suspect the late 70s and 80s are going to be horrific though.
I have become obsessed with this song. It's from 1983 and it sounds likes like Japanese pop-opera-indie over a "Road to Nowhere" beat. The album is good too. I'm in love with it.
Title translates as -"My Life is Big" apparently, but there must be an Urb with the language level to take issue with that.
