Happy belated birthday to Fela Kuti!
I (seriously) hope I didn't miss anyone else dying in the last two days. Anyway, everybody still likes HAIM, right?
This is an odd collection of white boys.
Thought I might've played this earlier...guess not. So I'll play it now.
Marianne Ihlen, noted "muse" of Leonard Cohen, passed away recently. This song is probably Top 25 "Time And Place" songs for me, which is likely why I haven't listened to it for a long time. Let's give it a spin, yes?
Okay, first off, Iggy Pop is not dead (somehow). This is for his brief saxophonist, though well known through the industry, Steve Mackay, who passed away over the weekend. While Iggy gets the lion's share of attention here, one can hear (what I assume) is Mr. Mackay's brassy overtures.
How's that for a crappy sendoff? Sorry, Steve.
