Day 138

Doctors' Mob- Headache Machine

Sorry I didn't blog last night. I got caught up in watching football all day and then the season finale of Survivor: Nicaragua. Laugh all you want, I'm a fan of the show. So after all that I was too tired to listen to a record.

I've been looking forward to getting to this record since Don Lamb is a friend and softball teammate of mine. Helluva a pitcher. What's weird is I could swear I saw Doctors' Mob back in the 80's when I lived in Dallas and used to sneak into clubs in Deep Ellum, but I can't remember the show. Back then, we didn't care who we were seeing, we just thought it was cool that we got in and that we were seeing live music. The first time Lambie told me he was in this band, that memory immediately came into my head so that's why I think I did see them. I could be wrong, but I think I'm right. I did go see one of their reunion shows a couple of years back at the Hole In The Wall. Unfortunately, I missed the one they did this summer.

I really dig this record. And not because my buddy was in this band. It's got the great 80's college rock sound. Jangly guitars, but playing fast, melodic songs. Like if Husker Du were from Austin. I found this record for a buck at a dude's garage sale earlier this year. Was really stoked to find it. Funny thing is I was just told earlier today that it was selling for up to $40 on Ebay. Not that I'm selling my copy. Just thought that was interesting. Now I need to go find Sophomore Slump.
