For points of comparison

For points of comparison: Across the Atlantic and a few hours later, I spun a couple of records for the benefit of Philadelphia rock-types taking a breather from the U.S. Maple show—reaction highlights included seven (seven!) people making joyful noise when i opened my second set with Van Halen’s “Panama,” satisfied grins at the opening lick of “Bathroom Wall,” and waves of somewhat shocked recognition passing over peoples’ faces when they realized the inspiration for The Grace Period‘s “Fuck Amen.” And I don’t know about you, Tom, but putting on “Overload”—which I’ve done every week before this one since I only just received my copies of “One Touch”—makes people dance for me, even without the benefit of any Stateside radio airplay (unless you count my Saturday afternoon radio stints).
