Song of the Day - March 28, 2006

Dan Treacy, legendary founder of the Television Personalities, is back with Ed Ball, a reformed Television Personalities, and a new album, My Dark Places. As I am fond of saying, this is an acquired taste, but I love it. Dan Treacy had struggled with drug problems, mental illness, and actually spent time on a prison boat off the coast of England, when he reappeared on the scene in 2004. The title track, "My Dark Places," reflects on these past experiences and revels in Syd Barrett influences, a Treacy favorite. The interchange between Treacy and Victoria Yeulet on vocals is one of the most appealing aspects of this particular song, yet I also love that British psychedelic sound. If you are not familiar with Dan Treacy and the Television Personalities, I strongly recommend you give them a try. Click here to listen.
