Over the last several weeks, Patrick of The Road and I have been trading YouTube music videos, bouncing old favorites off of each other, though I also sent him a ringer just to shake things up, in response to a Badfinger video. For some reason he wasn't enthused. Who can resist Hugh Gant? Patrick, that's who. It's been a lot of fun, with bands that have included The Damned, Stiff Little Fingers, Descendents, Killing Joke, and others, including the aforementioned Badfinger. When's the last time you listened to Cheap Trick sing "Surrender" at Budokan? What's a band you used to love but haven't thought of in a while?
One band that occasionally pops into my head, especially in relation to Patrick is Uniform Choice. Uniform Choice? Uniform Choice was a band started by some guys at my high school (go Monarchs!) and then later, Patrick played guitar for them. How's that for six degrees of separation?
