"When you see a ska fan, you see a nerd enjoying themselves. Who doesn’t hate that?"

@xyzzy oh gods. Seven Nation Army. Come Together. Billie Jean. Golden Years. Superfly. London Calling. like, half of Parliament Funkadelic's tracks. I might n36ed to lie down / make a playlist.

Dead Can Dance remains one of my favourite bands, and yet another who's discovery I owe to @akajtg .

We saw them at Massey Hall in Toronto on the Spiritchaser tour in 96 and I still remember it vividly: Lisa Gerrard regal and commanding in a flood spot, the backing percussion getting so lost in Yulunga (Spirit Dance) they missed the cue to finish. The opening act was a giant of a man (one of the band members, it turned out) reciting passages of Canterbury Tales.

The new record is wonderful.
