Where Is My Mind? - Trampled by Turtles

I still recall hearing the original of this weeks track, back in the late 80's .

The original as most of you would know, was written and delivered by Pixies' front man, Francis Black. From the Surfer Rosa release, "Where Is My Mind", has not only become a signature dish amongst Alternative listening circles - but has also been extensively used for film and TV advertisements and even video games, exposing it to the broader masses...

I'm so lucky to live in such an amazing part of the world - Surrounded by National Parks and local surf breaks, not to mention - a world class surfing reserve.

With this week coming to an end, we've seen another Noosa Surfing Festival unfortunately come and go.... So for this week's track I thought I'd throw an Australian icon into the mix......Ed Kuepper - just to help soften the blow....

This week's track submission is from critically acclaimed Dutch five piece "Black Operator". 

From my first listen I knew I had to have this track on a" Million Miles" playlist... The dirty roots'y rock and the dark tales and murder ballads get me every time... I can just picture it - a soundtrack -  an old car on a forgotten hi-way...a perfect place to commit the perfect crime...

Behind the wheel for most of us is a time to reflect...The good times - success - lost and found love - overwhelming grief and at times, the self torture...

For good or bad It's my think tank. I'm sure you've let your guard down out on the road, let your music take you away, rejoice in it's brilliance or seek shelter in lyrics - especially when they confirm you not alone.

I gotta be honest I probably wouldn't have put the original track on the turntable, but I also wouldn't have turned it off... 

 I can only imagine putting yourself out there as an artist must be one tough act to follow .... pardon the pun... Harder again, pulling off a cover of a track that swept the planet, went platinum... and since been listed on a Rolling Stone's top 100 songs of the Decade and furthermore their Top 500 songs of all time....
