Say Ave.

Say Ave. – Delay

You wouldn’t know there were any other Delay songs out there going by what pops up here. This is the fourth time i’ve posted this. There were two Delay albums i knew i didn’t own the first time this song came up, and now, if they’ve kept it up, who knows how many? Or if they’ve even kept up pop punk and haven’t followed the world to where the money is. Not to say they shouldn’t, but it would be a shame if they did. In that mid 2000’s pop punk revival they were one of the brightest bands, and someone has to keep on being a dork.

Say Ave. – Delay

There sure has been a lot of punk rock here lately. I thought i had lost it. Maybe it’s the weather warming up. Anyway, maybe one day another Delay song will happen here. It has been three times now and three times this song. It makes it seem like i’ve only ever heard this one album by them, and have never ventured past the first song.

Say Ave. – Delay

I have to listen to this record more often. I have to listen to a lot of records more often. I have to overhaul my listening habits, my management of time, my want not to make too much noise, to actually know some of the things i own more than cursively. I’m actually pining for the days before i had a job, before the internet became fast enough to make it worthwhile to download whole albums. Back then i would play something to death, not just to work through it, to whittle down a pile.

I also have to get Delay’s other albums. I don’t have to. I’d like to.

Say Ave.

Say Ave. – Delay

The first words i read today upon opening my eyes were “Say Ave”, nulling any other potential song i had in my head. I like to keep this record close. The record cover, anyway. Not really. I just don’t ever clean up after myself.

I never quite “got” Delay until i read their interview in an issue of Give Me Back. That is to say i never bothered to listen to their record – it being filed and then forgotten about after a large, tax return-fed mail order – until after i had read that interview. It painted a picture of a band with limitless enthusiasm, love for what they do and what influences them to do it, command, respect, humility, an important and revered band locally, with effect enough to inspire those of us beyond that. That interview made listening to them seem far more vital than whatever buzzwords prompted me to order it in the first place. And all the hope conceived from that interview came immediately through on this album.
