Roy Orbison / Fred Squire.

I saw Fred Squire play last night at the Dakota Tavern in Toronto. Good show, as usual. Also as usual, I found myself thinking that Fred and Roy look a lot alike. So here’s a compare / contrast for y’all.
The final photo features two of my other favourites, Daniel Romano and east-coast heart-throb Julie Doiron.

i like it.

Department of Eagles. “No One Does It Like You.”

Directed by Patrick Daughters and Marcel Dzama.
A good track. A good video.
Obviously a lot of influence from Dzama here – the video seems aesthetically and thematically linked to his previous work.
You can see my first post on him HERE.

pick and shovel, pick and shovel.

Sam Cooke. Chain Gang. 1960.

I have an awful job. For days I’ve been picking, shoveling, jack-hammering, shoveling, picking rock.
I can’t get this song out of my head. Minus the racism, the indentured labour, the ball-and-chain, I might as well be working on the chain gang.
