Everytime I smell Chlorine I think of Vox Humana Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

Ahh great summers! In the hot Texas sun at my friend Brad's swimming pool. Our favorite swimming album was Vox Humana We even invented a DA inspired game called "Slapped Silly". The rules I don't remember but I do rememebr if a soccerball hit you in the face and you didn't catch it you got "Slapped Silly". Hmm that might be the whole game there? From beginning to end and then again we would flood our ears with DA. We'd pull our chlorine water soaked hair straight upwards and run around the pool popping each other with towels. We would pretend we had rocket packs on as we sprung of the board. Mellow with some lemonade when WB came on and look of into the clear blue sky. Good times. Thanks Terry!

Album Associations Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

I'm a bit embarrassed to admit this but Zoom Daddy still reminds me of playing Super Mario on Nintendo 64-- especially Multipurpose Man. Sure seems like I should either have been doing something deep or at least involving human contact (as in your example), but, hey, it's not the first association between Terry and video games.

Here are some other album associations:

Outdoor Elvis and Kalhoun- High School
Songs of the Heart and Gift Horse- Backpacking Trips

Fearful Symmetry Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

A good memory of Fearful Symmetry was when my friends and I would go camping about a mile from our neighborhood down Red Oak Creek into the woods. Well we would make some late night ventures back into civilization. You know toilet paper, fork a yard, ring the big annoying bell on Willowcreek street behind these people's house, knock on a few doors or ring the doorbell. Well our entry way back to the woods was a little trail between a house and a vacant wooded lot. As we headed back into the woods we turned on our Ghetto Blaster (The Ghetto blaster bearer was equivalent to a flag bearer in our gang) which just happened to be playing Fearful Symmetry. Unbeknownst to most of us, one of our flock had run off to ring one last door bell. All the sudden this friend comes running up to us just as we were about to get off the main road towards the trail and tells us to run. The lights come on at the house and you can here the door open. We started running through the huge cedar trees where spiders had just spun their webs for the night. Also it happened to be a full moon. As we ran you could here "When the moonlight sleeps on the frosted hill" I can imagine those older people listening to To that eerie song fade into the woods. It felt like we were in slow mo. Thanks Terry!

sorry - I was all growed up (on the outside)when this stuff "hit the street"
My kids were buying cassettes- and No 1 Son brought home Vox .

I did do my own version of the robot to "Its the 80s" in my kitchen quite a bit..

(that was when I had a super tape deck in the living room- with extension speakers to the kitchen.and a simple A/B switch on my pre-amp....-its all in my garage now.. and at least set up with my CD player and a single speaker..a mans gotta live!

On a related note, listening to Zoom Daddy and Motorcycle always reminds me of working at a steel forge in '95. I absolutely hated the job, to the point of being depressed and getting physically sick (work aside, this was a horrible time in my life). I listened to these albums on the way to work to make myself feel better. Consequently, I feel a strange mixture of sadness, relief, and joy when I listen to these albums today.
