From The Basement #168
Another week of witnessing unspeakable horror still happening in Ukraine, while the signal is clear at home that a woman’s right to choose is in the main agenda of the GOP and will fix what’s wrong in the country. If there was any doubt that our Culture is barely holding on to Democracy by a thread it is disappearing rapidly. This episode continues our modus operandi of keeping the news on the tube to a minimum and turning the music up as loud as possible. Hope you enjoy the debit of “Normal-Eye Jones” not only our new Australian correspondent, but related to our very own, Art Damage. His feature on Chris Bailey is sure to please. As will new music from The Waterboys, Drive-By Truckers, Jack White, Jack Broadbent, Cheap Star, Edgar Winter, Bob Moses and Ray Lamontagne. Make sure to keep your ears open for nuggets plucked from artists as wide ranging as The Soup Dragons and Reno Bo to A Tribe Called Quest and Yes. Literally, everything in between. Thanks for the support and love and especially your ears and time.

Hate to lose another great artist, but great to see Chris Bailey recognized - even beyond Australia. Those first couple albums by The Saints still make me feel 17 and confused and angry and filled with hope and desperation - alive! When my band Saint Small got started and we’re looking for touchstones to build our sound from, we started playing Stranded. And brought it back out at recent shows to honor Chris and his music. Here’s our version if anyone wants to check it out - https://open.spotify.com/track/4PUtTtXuYGbPZrUj7Aup6x?si=ezX0a9x2SFCQU0SR2LDM4g
