AUNTIE AVIATOR


AUNTIE AVIATOR by John and Beverley Martyn.

Zoom zoom zoom zoom. From the sampled scouse (?) kid's introduction to the ominous guitar swells to the portentous vocals, this is one that is way too pretentious to work. Except it totally works. Zoom zoom zoom zoom, I'll never let you down. I listen to the piano solo in the middle and wonder why in the world I'm listening to it, then realize this is the fourth time in a row I've played it. It's like a jazzier "Meddle," but the added bonus of Beverley's cool and in control vocals. Definitely check it out.

LISTEN.

I didn't recognise the picture. That area reminds me of the woods we kids would ride two miles on banana bikes to get a chance to play. Always thought it was nice that it was a part of the schoolground but to this day I can't walk through there without feeling stalked...

If you are walking in the area where that picture is you are lucky to only be stalked because frankly, it looks like a murder has already taken place - Mom
