This song reminds me of when I used to live in the Italian countryside right after I graduated from primary school, sixteenth from the top in my class of eighteen (fuck yeah).
I didn’t have a penny to my name, kinda ironic given my name isn’t penny… and i was living in a tiny little room above a jazz cafe where I would work for my rent by banging on the floor and yelling for them jazzbo’s to shut the fuck up!

I once went to a Japanese film festival hosted at Charlie Greys in Auckland to see the documentary this week’s song choice comes from. We’d attended a one day international at Eden Park during the day. Greatbatch took a awesome catch, Hadlee was incredible… and it featured a huge Island gent with pierced nipples seated by us on the terraces who took to yelling at the bowlers a lot, he silenced the stadium… it was also a time when Mexican waves and can barrages were the norm, thus we all got …
