Groove On The Wireless #52 The Glory of Love

 Dr. Groove was profoundly influenced by the malcontent punk poet known as Lou Reed, and so it is fitting that I type these lines in a cafe surrounded by art, for the car crash of art and music was where he emerged from, all skulking in his black leathers and dark aviators.  Great lyrics don’t have to be complicated, they just have to hit you in the solar plexus, like

‘somebody else would’ve broken both of her arms’


Ahhh, but remember that the city is a funny place
Something like a circus or a sewer
And just remember different people have peculiar tastes

And at the end he talks about Rachel, which is interesting to read about Lou’s transexual muse.  So this rhythm guitarist may not have been the worlds nicest human, by all accounts, but he us an impressive collection of songs.

Enjoy the show and stay tuned for more stuff on the way, like a new mix coming down the line, and a radio documentary about Hunter’s Moon Festival which I just attended.

Rock On my people…
