“Subways” by Urban Verbs

urban.jpgUrban Verbs reunited recently. My friend Haley told me in advance. I was meaning to post this a while before Haley, outta nowhere, asked me about them. NPR has a recording of the show. A good band that you can learn about here. The fact everyone will tell you bout them is that this is Chris Frantz’ (Talking Head/Tom Tom Club/Producer of less-popular Happy Mondays albums)’s little brother Roddy’s band. I bet they hate hearing that all the time. The baggies of water on this cover freak me out a bit; don’t like thinking about wet photos.

Urban Verbs, “Subways” from their self-titled LP on Warner Brothers (1980)

Guess where I usually am when I think about this song?[kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/tebluTKKTAQ" width="425" height="350" wmode="transparent" /]
