The Big Red Round One: Basementcast #17

Welcome to basementcast number 17. It seems like these things are becoming seasonal, not that this one has any kind of theme, just that the last one was at the commencement of summer and this one just happens to land as autumn is beginning. What does the Red Balloon have to do with it, you may ask. Nothing really, except for the giant red tomatoes finally ripening in my backyard. They’re kind of pesky like that troublesome red balloon. You plant them with the highest expectations of big red round juicy fruits ripening on the vine and sometimes you reap the rewards and sometimes your hopes are dashed by foul weather. You’ll be happy to know that this year has been a good one for tomatoes. The basementcast is kinda like the tomato, it’s not ready ’till it’s ripe and this one has finally ripened. Like Orson Welles use to say, “There will be no basementcast before its time.” This one will either carry you away like the red balloon did the boy, or it will be like a tomato in face. Either way, it’s red and it’s round.

      It’s got a nice autumnal vibe for the last on of the summer.

    Wow….Cleaners From Venus and a Skids tune. You must have raided my music archive! What’s next? Brinsley Schwarz and the Remains? Ha!

      Eric, You never know, Nick Lowe has been known to show up on the basementcast. Do you have any Cleaners LP’s? Those are worth some $$. Better keep ’em locked up.
