Assuming your Guadalcanal Diary song was an RIP to Jeff Walls. Or just coincidence?

Either way, I like the last set, which answers the question of whether you have ghosts.

No, the Guadalcanal Diary track simply fit well into that block. I hadn't heard about Jeff Walls passing away. That's the sort of news I miss, with the TP message board gone. I sure am glad it's back!

Yep. My wife heard them first (thinking the band name was Ordinary People) and turned me on to them.

Thank you for your kind words, Bip.

Rhett, I had selected that block of ghost songs before I learned about Roky's passing. Totally a coincidence! Perceptions such as yours are another reason I've missed this board.

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing. And thanks for not playing that Tegan & Sara song about ghosts - one of the most over-played tracks on "mainstream" alt-radio.

RBCF has a new single out (with a b-side). Both songs are on Spotify. Good stuff.

I thought I heard Jeff Walls was in bad shape but hadn't passed away? [Pause for a quick web search] Yup, he died a few days ago of "a rare pulmonary disease." Well, that sucks. His solo from "Litany (Life Goes On)" is permanently etched in my memory. RIP.

Wow, like Christmas in June...board comes back and another good set list Delvin!

‘Magnificent seven’ reminds me to tell others of the clash podcast (called ‘stay free’) on Spotify hosted by Chuck D. I’m not a normal Spotify user but this was free and it’s making the work-commute a little more enjoyable, even if I know many of the stories already. Makes me miss Strummer all over again.

There it is again: "Smartarse Songwriters".
It popped up on my Spotify when I'd just played the one song and just let it run. Mr Toland also suggested it for your Australian setlist from year's past.

I know I've included Skyhooks in at least one previous setlist, but I just found my copy of
Ego Is Not a Dirty Word recently, having misfiled it in my collection at least a year ago.
