& The Mimosa Boys, Hillbilly Boys-White Label, LP
was a great sunny Sunday. I left my urban ranch late in a Sonic
Youth hypnosis hoping the groove would increase my driving efficiency.
About the fringes of Boulder Sugar
Kane got in my brain and the clock said enough time for 3 small javas
in a cardboard tray.
Jeff was already in the studio running cables.
"What, no Coffee?" said my old bearded friend.
"Yep, it's out on the table." says me.
We went on auto-preping the soon to be 240th broadcast. We're professionals and know what needs doing. Less than 5 minutes and it was go time. No Loki, but still go time.
A few ticks and Loki came dragging through the door. We were all running on slow. Loki had a rough week of rehearsals, too many concerts for Uncle Jeff and as for me... one dose of amped-up Son Volt had damaged my internal organs.
For almost a full hour normal ruled... then, out of nowhere the folk music showed up. Jeeze, well um, why, how, what got us to this? I begged for some Led Zeppelin. I mean I'm a little tired, but does that require folk music?
So, I swallowed the turn, turn, goodtime, Zimmerman pill and waited to travel the muddy folk road through a dark endless tunnel and... it wasn't so bad. Uncle Jeff spun a few folky tales. The kind where he relates the past to the present and future. Whoa... then I notice Ukulele Loki was the man in black with a new backpack and crackers. He's not afraid to be mellow.
The anti-folk venom turned out to be Santo & Johnny's fake sea gulls.
Post show recline with Johnny Trash followed by Tom's Tavern without Dee. See ya next week.
