Hello, how are you? Have you been all right through all those lonely, lonely… ah, I’m just messing with you, as you well know those are the opening lines of Electric Light Orchestra’s incomparable song ‘Telephone Lines’. You don’t? Jesus, that’s a fucking sad state of affairs, innit? No doubt your head is full of half baked Biblical prophecy, and a list of words as long as your arm that shouldn’t be spoken above a whisper, but the lyrics to ‘Telephone Lines’ aren’t important enough. You probably don’t even get the title of this post, do you? Hell no you don’t. It’s western civilization motherfuckers, learn it!

Oh, and I’m back from where I’ve been, everything is good, well, as good as it can be after being out in some rather nasty neighborhoods in the land of the Sandwich Eaters, but, I’ll tell you about that later, after you’ve familiarized yourself with ELO’s song library. I suggest you start with ‘Strange Magic’, it’s fairly accessible to the novitiate, good luck.
