I took my car of many years to a dealer today and traded it in. They gave me a healthy trade in. I would like to think the price paid meant that they too appreciated the quality of the car, but deep down I know it was a bribe to get me to buy one of their new cars.
No, my car wasn’t as flash as this hot Ford Falcon, but I was quite attached to it. Sob. I miss it already.
The good news is that I took out the stereo. It was a gory exercise and what was left (in the dash) wasn’t pretty. Once installed in the new car the stereo will be a reminder of the old car, call it a soul transplant.
Waskerly Way all the way. Obviously he likes cats.
Also, more power to railcars as he remakes a classic kate bush album.
I like the track in the mix, not sure if the album justifies all the hype.

“…strange, heartfelt, and weirdly beautiful.” -Altered Zones
“Watch Kate’s mighty African steed gallop through the grid of Motown acid and jagged megalithic pop that [railcars] has meshed, to soar up and burning Pegasus-phoenix-like into the sky, crash through it and beyond, leaving us earthbound and cowering under a deluge of heavenly fragments, the source of that gigantic drone with which the song closes.” -20JazzFunkGreats
“…drowning among a sea of melted tape and LFO, it’s one of the most convincingly aspirational renderings there’s ever been.” -FADER
“Many have stepped up to the Kate Bush plate, and as many have failed. It seems better to go for broke than keep close to the original, and Jalali is certainly triumphant in doing so.” -RCRD LBL
“The fawning over the greatest Bush that ever lived has hit some high watermarks lately . . . Good timing for railcars, who’s made a monumental ode to the English lady…” -Impose Magazine
