Why don't you do yourself in

Download: THE CLEAN "Getting Older (demo)"

Got New Zealand on the brain very much lately for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is that I've turned a new friend on to the Jean Paul Sartre Experience and her unbridled interest in that band is really cool, and has me digging out all manner of brilliant NZ early '80s noise-pop. Here we have a vaguely narcoleptic take ca. 1980 or so of "Older" by one of our favorite bands ever ever ever. It's from the out of print and hit-or-miss Clean disc Odditties (culled from two cassette-only releases, Oddities 1 and 2) which shows that a lame little toss-off tune by a group you adore is still better than almost anything else. This is why pre-Tommy Who bootlegs are so great, and why people who think only pristine, finished versions of albums that appear solely as the artist intended are totally tools.

Ahh, a demo of "Getting Older"; think I'll start playing this every New Year's eve at the stroke of midnight. Hell of a lot more "trenchant" than "Auld Langs Syne"

Hey Mike! The commentary and song selections continue to amaze and impress. Yep! Mike V
