"Intro" for a movie that never happened transitioned to the east
coast, folky Tom Rush era described by Ukulele Loki as the "Pre-Weirdo
Explosion." Oh so true. A few traks later got into Jerry Byrd's lap
steel on "China Night." The lap steel is an instrument which has
survived the test of musical time. After a few Rock-a-Billy traks the super
sad "Six More Miles" by Hank Williams caught me by surprise. It
could be the saddest song I've ever heard.
Then I took notice. "The walls are melting," said Ukulele Loki.
Whoa! "How descriptive," I thought. I had no idea where he came up with that and scribbled it down for later reference. All seemed to be normal.
"Everything leads from everything naturally," Ukulele Loki thought out loud.
"What a 05 hipster!" You know I'm wondering what's the chemistry behind his blurting, deep thoughts?
Again later, "The walls are melting," and I had to ask, "Why are you saying that, man?"
Loki replied he was fighting the effects of a string of sleeplessness... all I could think was how cool the thought exchange was. I mean it was memorable, it was repeatable and demands expansion... is it a band name, "The Walls Are Melting?" Punk for sure? Is it street for hitting the gutter, "My Walls Are Melting?" Damn, I dig it! I want to use it, so back to the show.
As soon as I heard Cal Hand's, "They Only Move The Stage" the walls were melting. I mean, this old-time modern music from the bastard sons of Takoma was hot and is still hot. I recommend anything Takoma. It's like a fine aging wine... drink some and your head clears, then spins.
Hunter Thompson is dead. The walls are melting. Know what I mean?
