|We were in the little grocery store in Paris when '74-'75 by the Connells came on the muzak. |
I had recently introduced la_sherazade to them. She turned to me. "Do you hear what's playing? I thought you said they were a local band?"
When I was in college I would run into the Connell guys in The Fresh Market fairly often. It was odd because one of them knew me and the other didn't, and the only way I could tell them apart was by saying hello and seeing if they looked surprised. To me, that's local.
By the same token, I consider local: Corrosion of Conformity (the drummer lived next door) and The Bad Checks (Hunter "Crash" Landen was a friend in high school).
Look, whispy little clouds!
