For the first time today, I noticed that Joni's left hand on the cover of Hejira looks like an outsized prick busting from under the tarmac.

I'm in the middle of Ronnie Wood's autobiography. On the plus side, there are some good stories (natch), he comes off as a guy it'd be fun to know, and it has a refreshingly un-ghostwritten quality. On the minus side, he really kinda glosses over the whole Faces era, and that pisses me off - I don't think he mentions even one of their albums by name... he mentions very few songs by name... he doesn't do much more by Ronnie Lane, Ian McLagen, and Kenney Jones than to mention them by name. And like most rock memoirs, especially those by former alcoholics/freebasers, it could have used a good proofreader/fact-checker.

From the liner notes to Tony Mottola's Guitar Factory:

In his new album, Tony works over some of the current hit songs as you've never heard them before. He has also added a delightful tune he has composed himself called "Chewy Chewy Gum Gum," a children's chant that calls to mind Berg's "Hop Hop" theme from Wozzeck.

On October 23, a street in Queens, New York will be renamed after the Ramones. Soon to be called Ramones Way, the street is at the intersection of 67th Avenue and 110th Street, in front of the main entrance of Forest Hills High School, where original members Johnny, Joey, Dee Dee, and Tommy Ramone all attended.

We were listening to Marquee Moon last night and suddenly I realised where the Cardigans got this hook from!

Never thought about that before! (Have you heard "Little Johnny Jewel"?)

I got the Night Moves Duran album the other day - the one with all the 12 inches on it. It's grand. I was playing Hungry Like the Wolf driving into work and realised for the first time that the noise that I always thought was a synth towards the end of the song that comes after Le Bon singing 'burning the ground' is actually a woman shrieking in sexual ecstasy with increasing enthusiasm. I can't believe I never noticed that!

Not one bit! I'm very surprised you never noticed it before. Maybe you're not as big a fan as you let on...

I just heard a lo-fi bootleg of Van Morrison, in March of 1973, doing Christine McVie's "Spare Me A Little Of Your Love". Not as good as the Fleetwood Mac version (which had come out only a year before), but being a big fan of both that Van era and that Mac era, I was tickled to discover it. Offhand I can't think of another example of him doing such a "contemporary" cover... unless "Bein' Green" counts.
