For Ruen Bros. I'd recommend "all my shades of blue" and "Genevieve come out tonight".
I used to travel to the Grimsby area for business and thought - "nothing good can come from this place". Sorry if anyone on the board is from that dreary corner of England. But then I found out that a band I liked was actually from Hull (Beautiful South) and now these guys are from Scunthorpe which is a bit west of Grimsby. So, maybe dreary industrial places are good for producing bands. Don't think I ever actually set foot in Scunthorpe - maybe it's not like the smokestack river towns along the Humber.
I mean, not obsessed like ELO obsessed but still obsessed. There's been some talk of TAME IMPALA on the forum (I think orioles70 might have mentioned liking them?) I think these guys are even better. To me they offer a lot of the same things as ELO, spacey and psychedelic but also poppy and synthy.
This song from the album sounds kind of "Idle Racey"
new songs out from Paul McCartney and Tom Petty I'm not a fan of Paul's song but the Petty one is pretty good. On the other hand, Tom was only 32 when he recorded "Keep a little Soul", while Paul is 76 now. Have to give him credit for trying to write and perform a real rock song - just doesn't work for me.
Timeblue: Not one but TWO Bev vids! We are indeed honoured!

orioles70: working from home has it perks, I noticed the birds were unusually noisy and sure enough - there is a rather large owl sitting in the tree just outside my dining room. Can't tell if he's waiting for prey or taking a nap.

BSJ: Very cool. For us, normally when all goes still, it means a hawk is hanging around.

Timeblue: Woke up the other day to a pile of sparrow feathers (minus the body...) our local sparrowhawk must have been hungry.

eloneen: The young man hosted Taco Tuesday last night, and this is Mr.Eloneen's week to prepare dinner (YESS!!!). Recently, he has made homemade apple pie, meat pies (inspired by our recent trip to the UK), burgers, biscuits from scratch, and chicken and waffles.

eloneen: Recently, I've made a delicious lentil and potato salad, jambalaya, roast pork loin with roasted veggies, but Hubby's the rising star! My mother wants him to cook all the time now! He made a cake (from scratch) for me and my mom for Mother's Day.
