Stepping Out


During the last days I read Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson once again just to see if this books works to like it did almost 50 years ago. I have to admit that I wasn't impressed that much as in my younger days but the way Thompson wrote is still freaked out. He described the journey of two persons writing about an off-course race in the desert near to Las Vegas. But it is more about using drugs than reporting about the race. Anyway a book worth to be read. While I read this book I remembered Curse Of Lono a band named after another novel by Thompson. Based in London they released a couple of albums and EP's and I don't know if they still active. They wrote songs Mumford And Songs would die for. Always between classic rock with a heavy affinity to Americana and Country. Steppin Out is a song that works to any time and any place to me. Especially Sunday morning with my first cup of coffee.

Curse of Lono are still active Walter and their most recent album People in Cars is well worth having
