All ease – Sleepytime Trio

I’m being toy. I’m toying. Stop being toy. I’m posting the live version of this because it’s my favourite version of maybe my favourite Sleepytime Trio song.

Rock candy – Sleepytime Trio

First Sleepytime Trio song. Again, this thing can’t be held as an accurate measure of the songs the fly around in my head daily.

Of course this angel has to play drums so i’ll have to fool him in to thinking i can play guitar, and that i’m a cool guy and he won’t be on ground floor if he starts this band with me. And i’ll have to do more than replying to his thread in my whitenoise way: “Me. Start band with me.” Too much potential happiness is riding on this. I can’t let it slip. It seems so fated. It can’t happen without me. Someone tell him that.
