wow, for me this song's got a neat quality (the whole set really!), has some special deep quality sound I really dig right now

Thank you DJ

Had a pale ale with BP in a pub this year. Great trip and very nice guy.

One great story: sharing his birthday cake with Art Garfunkel back when they (BP & S&G) had the same manager.

Not my favorite BP but outstanding nevertheless. The unsung musical genius of the 70s in my book. Can we hear more?

Brian Protheroe getting a second life thanks to Morrissey and Noel Gallagher. Noel's song "Riverman" is done in the style of Pinball after having had this song played to him by Morrissey in a bar in Los Angeles.

Oh. My. Gawd. Suddenly it's 1973 and I'm listening to Radio 1. Is Dave Lee Travis going to back-announce it?
 
Sound like we were listening to the same station at the same time! Thought Dave Lee Travis was a creep even back then before his spectacular fall from grace.

The fan site (mine).

He's put out a few very good things, but he's mostly an actor now. This is something that he created on his Mac to accompany his song.

 



 
Very Cool, thanks for sharing former member doofenschmertz

I don't know about the sound, but some of the song references are very much of their time. "Pale ale" and "pinball" are both long in the past, in the UK at least. It used to be that every other pub had at least one pinball table, but now they're rarer than rocking horse shit, much to my chagrin, as I was a pinball ace in the day. As a beer variety, "pale ale" was associated with dusty bottles at the back of pub bars, and now the name is hardly used, having been superseded by blonde ales, and preceded and superseded by IPA, a style which goes back to the 19th Century.

Oooo - I really like this one. It follows Jeff Talmadge's "Take A Drive With Me" perfectly.  I am sufficiently creeped-out.  Home alone, with weirdness in the neighborhood and cops cruising all around, apparently looking for an escaped criminal...

Yep, perfect atmosphere for this set.  Gonna go lock the doors now, and load the gun.  Oh, wait - Bro has the gun. I have a bb gun with no bbs. I suddenly feel very vulnerable... {#Lol}
 

We miss you so much, Cynaera...

love this song...

Suddenly there's a "...la-la-la-la-la..." in the background choir..?
I lave it!

PS. Fleetwood Mac (Man of the World) is playing now, and there's a big similarity indeed!
