standing in a record store in Tampere, Finland called Swamp Music and I'm thinking about Bob Geldof and what he did in his teens, thinking about what Bob Dylan thinks about when no-one is around.  I was thinking about Shane McGowan and all his crazy nights, about Joy Division and if love will really tear us apart, about James Joyce and how much he missed home and what exactly Luke Kelly said before he died.  I'm thinking about Justin Vernon and how if he knew For Emma, Forever Ago would have had such a major effect on today's music, about Captain Beefheart and what he really thought of Tom Waits, about Eddy Vedder and his favourite album of all time, and what Liam Clancy would put on his ipod at a house party if he was around now.  I am thinking about Bukowski and the love of his life, of Charles Dickens' least favourite person, of Charlie Chaplin and what his voice sounded like and of Staurt Bailie and what his first record he ever bought was.  I 'm thinking of Janis Joplin, Marilyn Monroe, I'm thinking of Pintandwefal and how they're going to be the next big thing, of my friends and people who were my friends but I don't see anymore....everything is good, I think I will buy something here, maybe some Pixies

ps. nice live review from across the line from last weeks show in Belfast
