You're in for a great trip. The entire album is golden. Nantes, In the Mausoleum, and Cherbourg are all great songs, but then again so are the rest of them.

Yeah, it's fantastic stuff. I can play Nantes on guitar now, and I'd like to try and find a band and put it together. That and Elephant Gun.

I can do Nantes (the chords) on accordion. Recording must be done.

Thanks for the explanation. I was curious but didn't want to ask for fear I should have known and would look "out of touch with today's youth."

Doctor Thunder, you and I were talking about Nantes a while ago, and I finally got around to recording a short bit of me playing it. Click!

So there you go, an epic half of the first verse!

Classic.

And also, I should just go back and look again but did he say something to the extent of........
"Some use plastic cups that dispense detergent and bleach at the same time in the same place.
We call them plastic cups that dispense detergent and bleach at the same time in the same place." ????

If so, that's amazing.
