THE MERMEN have just released a fine new CD and there's even talk of an East Coast tour!

I've always hoped some heavy metal band would cover Joni's heroin song, "Cold Blue Steel and Sweet Fire."

Everybody's aware, I trust, that the big guns of Led Zep are big Joni Mitchell fans? The references to "a girl out there/With love in her eyes and flowers in her hair," in "Goin' to California" are to her.
War is, at first, the hope that one will be better off; next, the expectation that the other fellow will be worse off; then, the satisfaction that he isn't any better off; and, finally, the surprise at everyone's being worse off. - Karl Kraus

thanks ezra,
if half the new THE MERMEN album is as fine as your link, i'll be getting the disc.
i've heard them, and of them, but i think this is the first time the name was connected with the music.

david,
i don't recall hearing of that connection (LED/JONI), do you remember this connection?

Steely Dan, one of my big faves. If you are going to do jazz rock, that's how it should be done.

Nonsense! Every voice is needed. Ne'r ye mind the naysayers: every view, respectfully expressed, enriches the place. THe only disruption is silence.

Cynic, so glad you are back. Your comments and cyber presence were missed. For my comments of a few weeks ago, I apologize. I overreacted to comments that were then floating around and please forgive an emotionally wobbly old lady. You were missed. Diane

hey hey hey my big ole red light went off on the control board here at world headquarters cause we went over the limit of posts with NO music links. Talk about what you will but this here is a music thread.

For example...

Mike -
If it was my rant that caused you to back off, please don't take it that way. Your comments and thoughts are a fundamental part of the fabric of this board. I was objecting to the tone of where we'd gone as a group, not the individual thoughts and ideas.

I don't care what opinions are voiced, as long as no one is called an " ignorant dumbass* " in the process.

I'm glad you're back. Now, if we could only entice Jan to return...


(* No one was actually called this. I'm using it for expository purposes only.)
- I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

Mike - as someone who was apparently derided as "obnoxious" off-board and behind the back by a denizen of these parts within the last couple of years, I can only say "post on". (Aside: I know not whom proffered said remark, but the person that gave me the heads-up about it is utter unimpeachable; who it was is rather immaterial. Really, I can come off as obnoxious sometimes. Everyone can in this imperfect communications medium. That said, whoever it was who likes to dig the knife behind the scenes can have a Coke and a smile and refer themselves to one-line chorus of track 7 of the Beastie Boys' To The 5 Boroughs disc. With walnuts.)

It's part the old saw about pleasing some of the people some of the time; and part not giving a hoot in hell that casual acquaintances, digital shadows, trolls, actual non-people and occasionally-perceived-as-obnoxious others are going to interpret you in strange and mystical ways based solely on your words. In fact, revel in it, because this is one of the few places in life where if someone is being a complete jackass, you can simply skip past their silliness to find meaningful discourse with others who can be civil.

And because this IS a music thread, I offer thus:
