Fairport Convention (1967)
!! CAUTION !!
nathan: i'm listening to Fairport Convention for the first time
it is weedy man
grant: i know nothing about them
nathan: also i have to run to the store in a minute
gonna suffer through this shitty album first, just 4 songs left
nathan: amber just said re: this Fairport album "this sounds like a psychedelic irish spring commercial" :D
grant: i'm sold
nathan: choice sentiment: "like a lobster i can swim / and grow another limb"
that lyric is from the epic song "The Lobster"
grant: i did the stifled laugh snort
oh jesus it's FREAKING OUT now
grant: drop some acid
nathan: i'm gonna send this to [___]
when he gets over his midlife crisis
apparently this was an inspiration for The Hazards of Love, the more you know tm
grant: huhhh yeah
is it proggy??
nathan: kind of preproggy
but it definitely has the traces of prog combined with like... eurofolk
nathan: ok broth
one last sample lyric
before you go
"look at me now
what do you see?
it isn't me"
ponder that as you sleep tonite
listen to the flower people
that was supposed to be a stoned emoticon, oh well
goodnight, thx for chat
grant: looks like a googly eyed cat
nathan: stoned cat!!
