#81 jonathan richman and the modern lovers – roadrunner

it’s formula one season here in singapore, where the city’s playing host to the first ever night race in f1 history, and i can’t wait to be there tonight at qualifying and the at full 61-lap race tomorrow! it’s been a childhood dream of mine, since following the prost-senna duels more than 15 years ago, so countless thanks to jeanie beans for the fab tickets! what i have for all of you, then, is jonathan richman and the modern lovers’ “roadrunner”. obviously smitten with the velvet underground, richman adopted the structure of “sister ray” (with who else but john cale producing) but left behind its bleeding mess in favor of a more urgent sound, creating in the process what some have considered the first ever punk record.
