Music Consumption: Silkworm
08/08/1999 Silkworm: In the West

Silkworm, In the West For some reason, Silkworm never caught on for me, until I heard this one. Of course, this is from the Phelps era, and we already know I'm a Phelps fan. There's an intense, aggressive sadness about this music that's extremely attractive to me. The standouts are the Phelps tunes, although "Garden City Blues" is up there, and I like "Enough Is Enough." I occasionally have the Cohen songs in my head, but to be honest, they don't grab me the same way as the others. I'm a bitter guy, I guess, but I'm not that bitter.
