Glad you like the song The Great Depression. I thought you would. As I recall, I actually found it when surfing around on Jinx Lennon‘s name, going through several related links. (During which time I also saw Flesh Taxi and Sticky Heads, incidentally.)

I actually found another song by Captain Midnight before that, that I had been thinking about putting up, Economics of a Wasted Life. Sadly, the video was incomplete; It only got through about half of the song, then cut off abruptly.

Another video I found was a 10 minute clip from an interesting documentary about 70’s and 80’s Irish rock music, “Out of Ireland”. I’ll play it here, if you’re interested:

One thing I thought was interesting was them talking about how only one out of every ten or twenty bands becomes a success, and then specifically talking about one of the bands that they really felt should have been a success, but didn’t make it, The Blades.

I thought they were interesting, so here’s one of their songs, Downmarket. And yes, they should have made it big.
