Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue.


Old

Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers

The Modern Lovers was a Boston proto-punk band formed by the Velvet Underground fanatic Jonathan Richman in 1970, lots of changes were made in the band’s lineup over the following 6 years. “I’m Straight” was originally recorded in 1973,  but it didn’t appear in the 1976 album, it did surface  in the  reissued Beserkley Records CD in 1986. Easy to relate to this song, I mean who didn’t/doesn’t have an annoying Hippie Johnny in his life…

Blue

The New & Very Welcome

Nothing beats poignant simple words , to depict human feelings, which are often misconceived to be complex, while it’s as raw and pure as the following song, taken from The New & Very Welcome 2007 EP  “All Of My Friends Are Too Indie Rock For Me”. Check their bandcamp below for the complete discography and downloads.
