Wonder Where I'm Bound?

...is as good a question for New Year's Eve as any. It's also the title of Dion's 'great lost' 1969 album. The Wanderer and Runaround Sue pop star recorded this album of folk blues, acoustic songs, folk rock and full-on electric blues. It's got its moments but is also a bit of a 'chuck everything against the wall and see what sticks' record and, surprise surprise, it bombed. The song here is Now, with a great Dylanesque chorus- 'No-one knows better than I how you feel'.

As for the question in the title and 2012- who knows? More of the same I reckon.

more of the same ,musically at least ,is a positive. in books, if you haven't read it beofre, the mmigrants by WG Sebald is great and includes a great description of your city in the 1960s.

All the best to all of you SA.

The Peaking Lights album is the canine's gonads by the way. Wouldn't have been my number one album, Cults was pretty much perfect for me but still brilliant. Thanks for the heads up.

If you haven't already check out Koolaid's Global Tyranny, strange but very very good.
