Not like I was doing anything
Just discovered this fairly recent, and very interesting, interview with Bart Cummings and it's something of a must read for anyone who likes their indie-pop, well, Oceanic and 'old school'. One of the band's he played with, The Cat's Miaow, came from Melbourne and were pretty amazing in that jingle-jangle way. In the mid-90s they even did a split-single with Stereolab you know. This was back in the day when that really meant something, when it was all cassette tapes and fanzines and the internet was barely crawling, let alone walking, to us regular punters. Sometimes I kinda wish we could turn back time to those days, mainly so we didn't have to think of Cher's thighs wrapped around a big gun when we type a sentence like this out. I mean, ugh. Anyway, boil the kettle and make some calming peppermint tea. Then listen to this song over and over again, banishing those hideous thoughts of thighs to the bar where no one will ever know your name, er, Tommy.
