Last night as we drove home from the semi-ritual of “Thursday night dinner out somewhere in Richmond”, the Saints, an old favourite band, were playing on the radio. RRR’s “The Australian Mood” always seems to be music I like — two weeks ago it took me back to 1980-82 and my almost-underage ventures into the Civic hotel and bands like Tactics and others whose names I’ve forgotton. Enough rambling, the Saints’ Walk Away was playing, for once it wasn’t just the opening few bars being used as an introduction or station promo. This afternoon I decided to listen to the song again while flicking (flickring?) through the Melbourne photo pool on Flickr. There in front of me is a photo titled Down The Drain — another Saints song from the same album.
