You could say I became chronologically fucked up

500 more were thrashing madly as parasites might in your blood

It's so deep it's meaningless

Love this song. Miss this band. RIP Gord



BTW a Caribou is the Canadian quarter, so when Gord sings "I'll drop a caribou, I'll tell on you" it is not an obscure metaphor, it's exactly the same thing as "dropping a dime on you"

Does anyone whip honey into butter for a spread?

This is not some kind of weird thing from my hillbilly family right?

Anyway whip some honey into soft room temperature unsalted butter.

Make a peanut butter banana sandwich using the honey butter on the inside of the bread (Texas toast thickness)

Butter the outside with the honey butter as well and grill like a grilled cheese sandwich.


USE CAUTION This sandwich is dangerous.

I have found myself contemplating making a third before coming to my senses

Looking at Trumps statements and tweets brought this song to mind

I especially the shackles around my feet line.

REM was so badass for so long but some of their later music is ignored

It's only natural I suppose, people move on and the flavor of the month changes...

What seemed revolutionary in the 80s seems Corporate 25 years later.

It's a shame but very few artists last that long to begin with and the few who make it rarely stay at their peak popularity.

All of that is true, but it doesn't touch the genius of the band. This song is a quintessential REM rocker.
The guitar work s deceptively hard.
The rhythm shifts and shimmers in subtle ways.
The vocals are classic Michael Stipe.
And of course the lyrics are vague and bewildering

My favorite REM song is still "Driver 8", but "Low Desert" is a close second and no one ever plays it on the radio...

Bootinup is killing it lately, posting a band I really respect and enjoy...

DEVO.

I keep reading folks saying they don't "get" DEVO but musically they fit right in to the 60s-80s North Ohio music scene and philosophically they were just punks railing against the death of individual freedom and autonomy.

Punks with Art degrees - Much like the Talking Heads.

But they sound so WEIRD people say. Well no, not really.

Just mix Akron's own garage rock heroes Tin Huey:


With the resident Ohio Funk scene such as Ohio Players or these guys:

And then listen to DEVO again
