Let’s See If I Remember How To Do This

Why is this happening?

Let me begin by paraphrasing a scene from 1967’s The Graduate:

“I want to say two words to you, readers. Just two words.

Are you listening?

Wet Leg.

There is a great future in Wet Leg. Think about it. Will you think about it?

Okay. Enough said. That’s a deal.”

So…..what could possibly reignite the creative spark and fuel the desire to raise these ten tired fingers to attack once again with gusto the faded keyboard beside me after a long and lonely 3 year absence? Why, the power of music, of course! The hills are alive with it, and so is my heart.

Let’s go back in time for a moment…

Like thousands of others, I discovered the band Wet Leg with the release of their single “Chaise Longue” a couple of years ago. Loved it. Worried that they might be a novelty for a hot minute, but loved their next release, too. And the following. Their first full-length album, unleashed upon the world one year ago this month, was my choice for album of the year and I played it repeatedly, but to whom could I announce this in order to share the joy? To whom?!!

It got me thinking. Also, I kept hearing so many songs on the radio I never got to write about. Months passed. The itch remained. And lo and behold, here we are.

If I’ve got any readers left from the old days, well, Hi there. I’m going to run things a little differently during this latest attempt: Song Of The Week stays, The Story stays, News Releases will be looked at far less frequently, and I’ll be adding a section for obscure songs that deserve to be heard but may not have much info, and another section for artists whose work can be summed up with a Greatest Hits rather than a full Story. A lighter workload, but hopefully a lengthier stay. Otherwise, it’s like the Men At Work album says…business as usual.

Let’s get this party restarted! (with a song from 2 years ago)

  1. Love Wet Leg. Hester Chambers cracks me up, particularly in this video. Nice to see activity here again, although you can thank your mum for the heads-up.
