parlando playlist #65: lane steinberg - empty boy [199x]

Ever since I heard "Empty Boy" on the compilation Yellow Pills Volume 2 (1994), I looked for any CDs by Mr Steinberg without success. Now, upon deciding on "Empty Boy" for PP #65, I looked up on the internet and he's still not listed on Wikipedia, but I find there's a lot of songs by Steinberg, with several bands that feature Steinberg's playing and songwriting. Great!

Unfortunately, my copy of Yellow Pills Volume 2 is in a box, liner notes with it. Two hours of internet searching for a year issued turned up nothing. Close: the band Wall of Orchids, featuring Steinberg, had a EP called Great Blue, and eventually had a compilation called Wall of Orchids, with all of Great Blue and several other tracks, including "Empty Boy". But I'm not sure of the date. I think it's somewhere between 1989 and 1994*.

*but I'm not obsessive.

Wow, somebody listened to a lot of XTC.

That's true -- or I think it's true -- about lots of power-pop / art pop in the last thirty years. If you're driving down that path, you can't escape the influence.
