I went to see my friend Bob play the other night with his new band (which was really great!) but I thought I'd take the opportunity to offer you something from his old band The Lackadays. A smart and tuneful bunch who clearly had listened to a lot of XTC, Squeeze, and the Smithereens. What I most like about them, is those songs that use what I think of as "Bob-harmonies"--a particular Beatlesesque vocal leap that is super-charming.

Why thank you for all the kind words! Gosh, that album is 10 years old, I think it's time for a reunion tour, it's all the rage so it seems, now that the Police are going that route (i'm so excited about that!)
