Nobody knows my name

Television Personalities-Look Back in Anger

Not many people know about this band. But I do and I'd like to share their music with you. This band was part of the 'no-wave" movement in the '80s, whatever that means. The guy who I worked with at the record store told me that when he reccomended them. Anyhow, they recorded a couple of albums, never had a hit, the lead singer/songwriter got addicted to heroin, and the band broke up up. This song comes from the album "And don't the kids just love it". It's a mix of power-pop stuff and punk, kinda like the Replacements but more English. The guitars are really springy with little rhythmic flourishes all around. Behind it are some chaotic drums that sound like they were recorded a mile away but somehow keep the song in its place. The best part of the song is when the singer says "I'm very sorry", he has some weird kind of speech inpediement that makes his delivery special and like nothing else I've heard. This song makes you want to dance...and I hate to dance. When I do it looks like a 100 year old man trying to get to his wheelchair, very wobbley.

PS-Blogger changed the comments system so you dont have to register now to make one. That means yYOU can make a comment. Even my Auntie Irene can make one. It's easy.

PPS-If you don't like this song you suck.

  • Well I just got back from the gym and I am beat. I am currently doing some research on resonator guitar and stumbled across your blog. Which cracks me up really. The internet can certainly land you off base sometimes. Even though Nobody knows my name is not completely related I think it is a cool blog. I have read back through the archives and lots of people make some very good points. Well I have been on-line forever it seems. I need to continue to plug away at resonator guitar. If you have the energy swing by resonator guitar. I try to update my site weekly and maybe you will see something you like. I already snagged your URL and put it in my favorites. If you do not mind I will be back again. Great job!

Even though Nobody knows my name is way off base from easy guitar song I found myself cruising through your blog archives for the last half hour :0) You have some nice blogging friends. Anyways, I need to get back to my mission. I wrote don’t your url and feel free to visit me here at easy guitar song. I am so busy so I can only update my site monthly. Keep up the great work.

  • I love your blog Richard. How long has it been on-line? Reason I ask is I am doing a ton of work in the area of beatles guitar tab and will probably end up starting a blog of my own. Funny how the internet brought me here when I was doing searches on beatles guitar tab. Oh well, I am glad it did. Keep up the great blogging and I am sure I will visit Nobody knows my name again!!

  • Sad to say I just got back from a bowling tournament and decided to log in and do some websurfing. Richard I love your blog. I had some very good laughs. I am doing a paper on christian guitar and have been downloading information for the last hour. I don’t know how I came across Nobody knows my name but I am glad I did. It has set me back a little because I have spent the last hour reading your archives. If you don’t mind I would like to add you to my favorites so I can back again and read some more. Well I need to get back to christian guitar. I am almost finished with it. Great job.
