late night in nourallahland

it's 2:08am
i'm listening to one of the 2 new cds
that came in the mail today
right now it's
liam finn
"i'll be lightning"
i love it
"gather to the chapel" on at this very moment
one guy playing everything
beautiful melodies and singing
a big heart
a great spirit at the core of this record
obviously made by someone consumed by it all
young liam's got a lot of his father in him but he's doing his own thing
i recommend it to you
heartily
this one came from new zealand
where my new TV friends britt and ju-maine came from too
and of course
murry
if you didn't know already
flights of the conchords is the best TV show of
well
ALL-TIME
http://www.hbo.com/conchords/
go here for hilarious "fruity fa-fa" video
http://www.hbo.com/conchords/video/index.html
that's right
you read it here first
i'm advising you to
go get HBO
or find a friend who has it
and be really really nice to them
so they'll let you come over
and watch every episode

anyway
our show tonight
at gezellig
for the dallas observer awards showcase
was fast and furious
sweaty and LOUD
it almost reminded me of the happiness factor days
we were met with a very warm
enthusiastic crowd
it was good fun
a nice bar gig
i'd almost forgotten how those felt
i loved seeing everyone pressed up to the stage
singing and smiling
it made my weekend
thank you
by the way
sorry i've been remiss
in my writing to you
i've just been too busy
i'm going to write more often again
especially during my trip to europe
coming up in september
there should be lots of action
vienna
paris
switzerland
the rhineland
sweden?
ok
cd #2 that came to me today
from the UK
the hours "narcssus road"
i saw these guys on jools holland
and they were GREAT
G even loved them
and he's one picky kid
afterwards i found out 2 of them had played with strummer
then it all made sense
"ali in the jungle"
"back when you were good"
epic sweeping melodic powerful
look for it on ebay
it's import only
and not available on our poor american i-tunes
i'm gonna keep listening to liam now
i don't feel like sleeping
just yet

love

Congrats on the award. Your blog continues to rock. And the Conchords is the best thing on TV. Any chance you'll do a cover of "Bowie in Space"?

That "Bowie in Space" episode of "FotC" was so funny that I thought I was going to have a heart attack!.
