So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

Oooh! Maxwell's 2/4/86 is already a shit-hot boot of a pretty focused outing. If there's pro-recorded sound of the whole show and not just the few tracks shot there for Old Grey Whistle Test this would be an epic buy.

99% of the way through Mehr's bio which forced me to dig into their catalog a lot more thoroughly than I had before. Love the demo version of Raised (Razed) in the City:
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Came out on Friday. Listening now and it's pretty damn awesome.
