On this morning’s drive to work AltNation played a new song (to them) by a new band (to them). Disko Killers by Lowline. Not a bad tune, but not the ear worm of a few of the other songs they play in heavy rotation. It reminded me of Simple Minds a lot, with a touch of the Cult. Stu, on the other hand, thought it sounded like Garbage. Made for an interesting conversation:
Stu: Like Garbage, but not Courtney Love‘s band. You remember that blond lady from Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles, the one that owned the business from the future? Her. She’s the lead singer from Garbage. It sounds like Garbage’s “Ready to Go” but if a man was the lead singer.
Me: Oh, I can hear that now.
Neither of us could remember the name of Courtney’s band at the time. This was in the morning, and I don’t think Stu had his morning tea, and I had not gotten too far down my cup of coffee.
Tee hee hee.
Sometimes it’s fun to car pool.
Update: The band was Republica, not Garbage. Neither of us for that right. Oops. I guess we’re more tired than we realize.
