Whelp, you're officially a baby boomer now
Not quite, but I have a lot of respect for the baby boomers when they were at the height of their cultural zeitgeist in the 1980s.

They probably would have made a better use of the technology available today then the millennials. Maybe.

I was very much of the Beat Generation, 89-up until well into the 2000's. Now that seems utterly dead to me and also the common culture has ditched Kerouac, Ginsberg and Burroughs. Although I do think we are living in times predicted by Burroughs and he had trickster techniques to break into the reality studio. Which I hope of some of us are using! Cypress Hill, definitely.

Don't smoke or inhale, but CBD under the tongue for medicinal reasons, so I guess can dig this extended version:

Strangely, or oddly enough, I downloaded the new Cypress Hill album over the weekend, having never listened to them since Insane in the Membrane. How very apt, the soundtrack to our lives, except smoking spliff, I mean the madness that only a trickster archetype can get out of, my kind of madness:

You like the Brinsley Schwarz version? I find it lacking and without any edge even though it is the original. Lowe's never recorded his own version, which is why it is on Quiet Please.
Do you have the Christmas album of Lowe's? Quite wonderful, especially Christmas at the Airport that even gets my family's thumbs up. I will post it again nearer to Christmas.

Totally agree about the Brinsley version. I thought it was originals v covers, in which case maybe it should have been Brinsley v EC.

Ernesto, at the old St Kilda Palace?
Yes, he did two shows, one at Festival Hall which is where I got backstage and then the palace one, which EC just did on his own. Went to that one as well, which I had actually forgotten about. I think he did the Jo Jo Zep song So Young that night. On the liner credits for that song it says 'Produced at gunpoint by Nick Lowe', so I gather Nick wasn't a fan.

Nick Lowe opened at the show I went to at Palace. James Burton was there too and Costello did So Young

I listened to a Nick Lowe interview several years back and he said he made a couple of million on the inclusion of What's So Funny.... in the Bodyguard soundtrack which was covered by Curtis Stugers, I think he wrote a song about it and explained he was back in the UK after his divorce in his semi with a takeaway and wondering where it all went wrong and then the next day.....a big juicy loyalty cheque.
