It has been a stomach churning hell ride just watching Putin’s brigade commit war crime after war crime. My heart breaks for the Ukrainian people, as by now at least a million and a half have fled the country, mostly women and children. We knew he was a thug but to target civilians and especially children with murder. His treachery and calculated slaughter of Innocence leaves no name or tag low enough to place on his hateful balding head. There will be recompense eventually, I need to believe that. I do suspect he is either Insane or Ill and wants to go out by starting WWIII. I had to retreat to the studio and keep music playing as the level of Armchair Infectious Disease Experts has nothing on the numbers already of newly minted Global War Experts. Coupled with footage that causes a deep unrest only experienced on previous events like 9/11 or any number of School Shootings or for me, 11/9. At least there are some very tasty new morsels to ingest. Mike Campbell & The Dirty Knobs second effort finds Ian Hunter and Margo Price guesting, Calexico are typically brilliant, Band Of Horses “Things Are Great” album really is, Belle And Sebastian are rocking and Cheap Star is my favorite record of the year, at least today. We also wish Robyn Hitchcock Happy B’day and try to make sense of it all by threading through a diverse yet sympatico choice ride. The Clash, Arthur Crudup, Negativland, The Woodentops, Angelo Badalamenti, The Promise Ring, Al Stewart, David Bowie, Prince, The Teardrop Explodes, Violent Femmes, Gigolo Aunts, Ween, Chicago, King Crimson, Jonathan Winters, Wesley Willis, Leon Russell, Bruce Springsteen, Lee Michaels, Siouxsie and much more. Thanks for the love at https://www.paypal.com/pools/c/8HFOsNAncK and especially for listening.
