    I heart Mary Lou Lord. She’s also a huge Richard Thompson fan and has done a couple of RT covers. She also did a cover of Guided by Voices “Blimps Go 90” when I saw her last year. Unfortunately, she was loosing her voice so the show wasn’t that great.

    Also, very psyched that you featured the Mary Lou cover of “Jump”! I’m a huge fan, and believe it or not, this is the first time that I’ve heard that particular cover. I let the folks on the MLL list know, so perhaps some of them will subscribe to the podcast.

    thanks all – especially Michael. Always welcome for anyone to post or tell other people about Radio Clash – makes it worthwhile and spreads the word 😀

    I’m not sure where I found the MLL cover, I think it was an official download from a website (rather than P2P) but many years ago – 2002 or 2003. I really like what she does with it.

    Yes, your comments about New Orleans resonate with me, but cause difficult moments with my American friends, similar to when I talk to my Aussie friends about the appalling plight of the Aboriginies.

    There does seem to be a pecking order for misery, and 911 gets extreme attention whilst the bodies continue to float in New Orleans. I remember the crazed hunt for the dead through the rubble of the WTC.

    I am guilty too of this contradictory reflex too, but the ‘foreigner’ has never been in my own country in the way that they are in Australia or America.

    Great podcast, touch of Hit Tin Roof, cue the insects.
