Dizzy Heights #29: And a Robot Wife

Written by Dizzy Heights, Music

In which I come face to face with the fact that I am still ‘Sitting on the Floor Playing with Tapes’ David, and always will be.

This was originally going to be a Halloween-ish show, and by the time I was finished, the only thing remotely Halloweeny about it was the post-intro bit. And even that, for the unaware, doesn’t seem like it has anything to do with Halloween.

We have another premiere this week! It’s a Canadian band called Dizzy, so how do I not play them? (Answer: I don’t not play them.) The tune is a good one, too. Very eager to hear the rest of their material. It’s the third song of the show, if you’re curious. Fans of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game,” take note.

Other bands making their Dizzy Heights debuts this week: Cooper, Delay Trees, The Coral, and my beloved late, great Kirsty MacColl. I have no idea how I waited 10 months to play her.

Note: I refer to an album as The Innocence. It is in fact called The Knowledge. I regret the error.

Thank you, as always, for listening.
