Next up was Human Highway, a very melodic group comprised of Jim Guthrie and Nick Thorburn. Two very great artists who have accomplished great things in their career. They were good, but completely misplaced in the overall line up. Seriously not appropriate for the follow up to the Bicycles or the pre cursor to Handsome Furs. My buddy Pat said “It is like a 50’s high school dance. I feel like I am in back to the future.” I have to admitted I laughed really really hard, for a really really long time. I felt bad. About twenty five minutes into their set they finally played an up beat, up tempo song, it was good.
It was after this that Handsome Furs were up. As I have already said they were incredible. And now we have come full circle.
