Music of the Sphere: Rapturous Retro Return Edition

We are delighted the inimitable Gary is back in harness at Retro Music Snob after an eight-month hiatus. Here are some highlights from what we found there last night.

The Beatles - In My Life - Retro Music Snob

Wednesday Week - Missionary - Retro Music Snob - a personal favorite from the late 80s; I've got the vinyl, too, Gary, and a cassette! A perfect song.

Smoking Popes - Little Jane-Marie - Retro Music Snob

Bruce Springsteen - The Ties That Bind - Retro Music Snob
Dire Straits - Romeo and Juliet - Retro Music Snob

Leg Tail Leg Edition: Teenage Head, Girls, Ettes, Monolators, Upsidedown, Telepathic B's, TBRP, Head of Femur, Bellfuries, Marching Band, et. al. . .

Girls, Girls, Girls!!!

The Broken River Prophet - This Gaping Wound in My Chest Is Like Reading Your Diary Out Loud mp3 - I'm kind of a psucker for this psychy Byrdsy pstuff.

Plushgun - Just Impolite mp3 from Plushgun (fires 19th Aug)
