Blueglass

Last night, we were over at Lara and Jeff's place, and we had brought various axes with the intention of making some honking squalling noises. Of course, I brought my cheesy Casio keyboard, and as it happened, Jeff camped out behind it and we barraged the poor lad with request for arcane song-scenarios.

Anyway, at one point I gave him the following command: play me a piece that Philip Glass would have written if he grew up in rural Tennessee instead of in New York City. So he sets the Casio for its terrible-sounding 'banjo' tone and lets rip an amusing variant on "Glassworks"-era Phil, to everyone's enjoyment. Well, to mine at least, since I was the only other one in the room at the time.

But afterwards, I got to thinking: if someone did an album of bluegrass covers of Philip Glass compositions, I WOULD TOTALLY BUY IT! Oh my God! Am I right? Isn't this a brilliant idea? Christ almighty! SOMEBODY DO THIS RIGHT AWAY! My $20 is waiting!
