Get Springy!


In which Uncle LD shows his somewhat less dismal side to a possibly uncaring world, via a soundtrack brimming with compulsory happiness... Happy seeming, at any rate, until one listens to the lyrics. Anyhow: Tune in, get out (of doors, we mean) and enjoy your life while you still have one. Oh, and support the necrotic ol' music industry with your cash — why do you think we provide all the information below? Just to amuse ourselves? — or that of your parents, lovers, willing strangers or some such, and maybe some of us can continue to write and record sublime, exhilarating songs about dead blonde starlets, massive depression, ambulatory madness, little avian friends (perhaps imaginary?) and so on.

NEXT WEEK: It's all about cabaret, duckie, and it goes a little something like this...
