Phil Judd

Phil Judd -- The Swinger

Phil Judd -- Dream 'N' Away
Q: What do you know about this song?
A: Not much, really. It's fun, it's friendly, it's neat--uncluttered--and it has a sort of striking clarity to it. It sounds familiar but I'm fairly certain I've never heard it before. I think it's probably just familiar in that way that inherently good things are, where it's almost as if you know them before you meet them and it causes a sense deja vu when you finally do. And, you know, after awhile it's hard to imagine never having known them--like the taste of cherries, or the sight of a breeze passing through grain, or a melody like "Yesterday." Just one of those fundamental goodnesses that probably existed in whole cloth before the universe exploded out of a pinpoint of matter, and when the universe finally got around to creating them, it was with a sigh of relief at finding something so comfortable. Like slipping into a pair of old jeans.
Q: You don't say.
A: But I did.
Q: So you like this song.
A: Well, yes.
Q: What do you know about Phil Judd?
A: Antipodean punk/New Wave/soundtrack musician.
Q: Would you like to add anything to that?
A: Hey, hey, hey, hey. Ho, ho, ho, ho.

This post was brought to you by channeling Dan at Said the Gramophone. (Dan is not a ghost, and he said it made him all woozy when it happened. I promised not to do it again.)

This LP is out of print, which is a shame.

Brief Judd bio here.
