I had a friend of mine post the Wet Leg song yesterday - you live in Georgia?

I'm in Connecticut.


I'm still trying to figure out the whole Wet Leg thing.

They are very, very popular on alternative rock radio of late, opening for Florence and the Machine in Madison Square Garden soon.

To me, they are, well, meh.

"Hello from the Rialto Square Theater in Joliet, IL!

I am currently on tour with Post Modern Jukebox and had some time before soundcheck today, so our guitarist, Luca Pino, and I decided to film a little something for fun!

This theater was just too stunning not to capture a little but of it on video!

Luca is an amazing guitarist and musician from LA that I've had the pleasure to get to know over the past week, and he's got such a love for older music and films like I do!

Since we have some time before sound check, we are going to try to do a handful of these little videos because they're fun!

This song, "I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter", is a 1935 popular song with music by Fred E. Ahlert and lyrics by Joe Young. It has been recorded many times, and has become a standard of the Great American Songbook. It was popularized by Fats Waller, who recorded it in 1935 at the height of his fame.

This is honestly one of my favorite tunes"

Jefferson Airplane - We Can Be Together

Lyrics...
genius.com

...
We are all outlaws in the eyes of America
In order to survive
We steal, cheat, lie, forge, ----, hide, and deal
We are obscene, lawless, hideous, dangerous, dirty, violent, and young

We should be together
Come on all you people standin' around
Our life's too fine to let it die
We should be together...

We are forces of chaos and anarchy
Everything they say we are, we are
And we are very
Proud of ourselves

Up against the wall
Up against the wall, -------------!
Tear down the wall
Tear down the wall
...

New Model Army - White Coats

Lyrics...
genius.com

...
Well, we know what makes the flowers grow, but we don't know why
And we all have the knowledge of DNA, but we still die
We perch so thin and fragile here upon the land
And the earth that moves beneath us, we don't understand
...

As children learn about the world, we built that wall of sand
Along the beach we laboured hard with our bare hands
We worked until the sun went down beneath the waves
And the tide came rolling splashing in, washed the wall away
How do we tell the people in the white coats
Enough is enough?
...

Billy Bragg - Ideology
www.youtube.com

Lyrics:
genius.com

...
When one voice rules the nation
Just because they're on top of the pile
Doesn't mean their vision is the clearest
The voices of the people
Are falling on deaf ears

Our politicians all become careerists
They must declare their interests
But not their company cars
Is there more to a seat in parliament
Then sitting on your arse
...
