That’s When I Reach For My Revolver!

So, welcome to my first post. Typically one might be inclined to speak about themselves. I’d rather mention one of my favorite songs.


So, leave it to a punk rock kid in the late 80s to ignore the record store owner’s unique suggestions for the next album to purchase. Now, mind you I worked there. He was always giving me suggestions, and in retrospect he was always right. So there was Mission of Burma on the shelve, that i believe i may have even placed there earlier that week. This was 1988and unfortunately I didn’t buy it. It took me until a year later that a friend had played it for me. I instantly regretted never buying it. Also by album I mean an actual record, and that isn’t to be fanciful or retro hipster. I had a tape player and a record player and this was the 80s.

So here it is the song that made me a fan “That’s When I Reach for My Revolver“. Lyrics that are terse and to the point. Although I wonder if the reflection is more inward than an outward reaction. Still love this song, and not just for the wonderful post punk angst. The drummer carries this song so nicely. It really sounds like he was in the moment on every impact. I hope you enjoy it and enjoy everything that is to come from this site.
