Concrete Blonde - Bloodletting (1990)
Released twenty years ago today, on May 29, 1990, was Bloodletting, the third studio album by Concrete Blonde (who is now touring to celebrate the album's twentieth anniversary). The album contains "Joey," the band's most popular song. I became familiar with Concrete Blonde later in 1990 when their cover of Leonard Cohen's "Everybody Knows" appeared on the soundtrack of the teen film, Pump Up The Volume (a film responsible for introducing me to a number of bands, in fact). From then on out, I've been a follower and fan. Happy anniversary.
Thirty-something suffering from nostalgia but, thankfully, not from bouts of irony. Here, I will revisit artifacts of popular culture not sufficiently explored elsewhere, though I may perhaps stray from that mission at times.
