🦋 Birds in Perspex

Lots of fun at the Mountain Station practice session today! Our practice set list:

  1. Bethlehem Half-step
  2. Lonesome Nickel
  3. Talking Heads weirdness
  4. Meet Me in the Morning
  5. Birds in Perspex
  6. Been all around this world
  7. Cole Durhew
  8. I Can See Clearly Now/ Here Comes the Sun medley
  9. Why Don't We Do It in the Road jam
Let's listen to "Birds in Perspex"! It is my favorite Robyn Hitchcock song; this is the first time we've ever played it and I think we did a pretty good job.

🦋 Forever is ending today

If Mountain Station was from Nashville, they'd be a country act. Here's a slow jam.

A-and thanks to Mr. Peter Guralnick for hipping us to "Are they gonna make us outlaws again" and in general, to the roots of rockabilly.
