Music

A couple months back at Joe's Pub, Canadian bluegrassers the Duhks joked from the stage that they had "married" Canadian agit-folkers the Mammals, and would from here on be known as the Platypi. What a coincidence: There's also a platypus on the cover of the Little River Band's new best-of CD, which otherwise suggests said underappreciated Aussies were at least as proto-Men at Work as post-Eagles. As for Bob Seger, who may not even know the difference between a monotreme and a marsupial, the reissue of his 1972 mostly-cover-tunes set shares only one song with his three great ones on that new Cameo Parkway box. But as for Seger: The Punk Rock Years, which just might earn the Best Album in the History of the Universe Award if it ever materializes, we are still waiting.
