I’ll Stick With the Gang of One

Oh but for some reason I really want to listen to The Jayhawks – Nevada, California before I go to bed.

This was a tape that was bought for me when I was about 12 or 13 I think, so it was pre teenage music boom.

The audience for an awful lot of music that isn’t new is my younger self. Strange temporal community of selves surveying each other. Popular music to a factor of one.

I’ve been listening to this album a bit for the first time in year, after I read the f’ing great A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan. I thought Waiting for the Sun off the same album would make a great theme tune to the book.
