James – Born of Frustration
Band/artist of the week: Mogwai
Song of the week: Bruce Springsteen – Ghost of Tom Joad
I never like James all that much, but this is a great song. Video is very early 90s. The director obviously wanted to be Anton Corbijn (now I'll probably find out it actually was Anton Corbijn), but sadly it doesn't look like the record company had enough money. Nice owl though.
Oh, and this looks pretty good too ...

Bruce Springsteen – Dream Baby Dream
Last year when Bruce Springsteen toured Australia I took son number one to see him. Number two son was a bit upset, but I managed to cheer him up by promising that the next time Bruce was back in Australia I would get the best tickets we could and take him; confidently assuming that it would be at least another five years before Bruce made it back.
That plan back-fired when he announced later last year that he would be back for some stadium shows in February of this year. No way I was getting out of this one, but at least this time we managed to get tickets without any problems. And last night was the big night. I think it was probably all a bit much to take in for an almost-seven-year-old and he didn't quite make it all the way to the end of the encores, but he had the guitar out this morning and was telling everyone all about it.
set covered every era from The Wild, the Innocent and the E Street Shuffle through to the recent High Hopes. It also featured Finn's favourite song Hungry Heart and three tracks off my favourite album Darkness on the Edge of Town.
