Record Store Days are always good days. Spend quality time with friends in line, arm wrestle other local collectors, and (usually) emerge with a good quantity of selects from that year’s list. All but one 7″ was obtained this year, The Zombie’s Rose for Emily. Following the circus, we spent the day spinning everything from The Hustle to pre-Kinks – The Ravens, to The Music Machine, to Young M.C., to Esquivel, to The Claypool Lennon Delirium. Like I said, Record Store Days are always good days.
I’ve been waiting for 8 months to showcase an amazing analysis of Monolith of Phobos, the spectacular debut release from The Claypool Lennon Delirium (Les Claypool and Sean Lennon… no joke), and this post is (clearly) not said analysis. I’ll have to circle back when 1) I have more time and 2) well, there is no 2). If you haven’t already, and I’m sure you have, CHECK. OUT. THE. CLAYPOOL. LENNON. DELIRIUM.
I can’t wait for the sun to go down, and then re-emerge tomorrow morning. For when that celestial journey yet again occurs, I’ll have the allotted time to dive into The Claypool Lennon Delirium. This double LP, featuring Primus’ Les Claypool and John’s Sean Lennon, seems like just the whimsical duo for an overcast (forecasted) Sunday morning. Drink responsibly tonight, kids, and check out Monolith of Phobos.
