Nils Lofgren

I've been listening to new things to my ears from Nils Lofgren over the last few days. Lofgren is a musican I adore, who's work can touch my soul,especially on his work with Grin and Crazy Horse. I've been listening to his album of Neil Young covers and have been moved by the songs in a whole new way. 'like a Hurricane' and 'Birds' are breathtaking.


Lizzy and I went to see 'Moon' tonight. I was very impressed. This film is so well made it feels it could have actually been made in the 70s. Duncan Jones and his collaborators on this film are talents to be watched.
