To end another wonderful decade of great music, I’m going to write about ten albums from each of the last ten years, that are either great, or hold some sort of personal significance. A musical kiss off to 00s.
2001 – #5. Lazy Susan – Long Lost
It’s really quite impossible for me to discuss this album, as it’s mainly my friends involved. Lazy Susan were a band from Sydney, who I would later join. But even before that, I was a huge fan. Long Lost was their first album, and there were two big radio songs – Canada and Bobby Fischer.
I lived and loved these songs, and later got to play many of them live all the time. It was witty, pop, sad, fun and everything I loved about music.
More than that, this record was rooted in living in Newtown, and a couple of girls I knew from around that time. Singer Paul once said something I loved about his songs – that they were every day songs. They are the reliable trousers you can wear every day – not the flashy leather jacket when you’re trying to be a poser.
That’s all I can really say about this record at this time in my life. Maybe in another ten years…
