Get Surrounded By Morons

Something new this weekend from the Dry Wood Garage. A new song, “Surrounded By Morons” is available. This one though, you’ll have to pay for, which seems like a pretty fair deal after weeks of free music, yes? The download is available from Nimbit Music, very easy process – just pay $0.99 via PayPal and you get your download.

Glen Campbell 1936-2017

R.I.P. Glen Campbell: He wasn’t just a ‘Rhinestone Cowboy’ – Stephen Thomas Erlewine, CityPages

Campbell’s 61st studio album, “Ghost On The Canvas” was released in 2011. The title track was a PW cover of a song Paul released in 2009 on “PW & The Ghost Gloves Cat Wing Joy Boys.” Paul appeared in the video for the song, which starts out with a visual nod to the Mats video for “Bastards of Young”.

Another Westerberg song called “Any Trouble” also appeared on GOTC, and includes some lyrics familiar to us from “It’s A Wonderful Lie”.

Don’t go and make a fuss
And you forget about us
And any trouble you got will fade away
Don’t pin your hopes
Don’t pin your dreams
On misanthropes
And guys like me
Don’t pin your hair
Let it hang down
Don’t go to any trouble on my account

Campbell also covered a PW song on in 2008’s “Meet Glen Campbell”, which also included covers of U2, The Foo Fighters and Green Day.

Happy 33rd of July

And it’s already the 33rd of July
Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Cryday night

Twelve-thousand, five hundred
Days you’ve been alive
I’m leaving in early Septober

And it’s already the 33rd of July
I met you again last night for the very first time

Diamonds are forever
I am for sometime
I’m leaving in early Septober

And it’s already the 33rd of July
On Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Cryday night

Twelve-thousand, five hundred
times I have lied
I’m staying till early Septober
And it’s already the 33rd of July
