“The Air that I Breathe” by The Hollies

Some circles may remember The Hollies’ 1974 hit “The Air that I Breathe” solely for its use in an early 90’s television commercial for house paint (I watched a lot of TV when I was a kid).  Some might remember it for being the reason that Radiohead now pay royalties to songwriters Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood due to the song’s similarities to “Creep.”  For some reason I remember it as background music to growing up in west Texas in the 1980’s.  And I’m not sure why.

Shit Song Of The Week “Bad Day” Daniel Powter

Screen Shot 2017-02-13 at 6.55.04 PMThis week’s Shit Song of the Week is way too easy. I can already hear the complaints. However, instead of ripping on Daniel Powter for making this completely fabricated, pop turd I will instead simply try to convey how the song and video for ‘Had a bad Day’ makes me feel.

The Joup Friday Album – Graham Parker & The Rumor: Howlin’ Wind

Howlin WindHowlin’ Wind by Graham Parker and The Rumor is an album of abundant substance. The story behind the band and the production of the record have a lot of sub-plots behind them so I will try to focus more on the record and its songs rather than try to form a family tree behind it. This will be hard because Howlin’ Wind was produced by Nick Lowe, features Dave Edmunds as a guest guitarist and was recorded at Eden Studios in London, a studio that had quite an impressive guest list from 1972 to 2007. You very well might have quite a few records that were recorded there: Elvis Costello, John Cale, Joe Jackson, The Happy Mondays, The Smiths, The Undertones, The Sex Pistols, Primal Scream and Oasis are just a few bands that have recorded at Eden Studios. That said, I will try to pin down the Album “Howlin’ Wind” and a give brief history of Graham Parker and the Rumor.
