Yard of Blonde Girls

Wow, nursing school is keeping me much busier than I could have ever imagined. Working full time and being a full time student is hard.  And I can't deal what's on the terrestrial radio so I've been finding myself listening to classical music for the first time in my life!  When I actually remember to grab a CD or Ipod for the commute, I've been listening to pretty low key stuff to ease my anxiety. Lots of Jeff Buckley this week, which reminds me that I should write about Inger Lorre and the Nymphs!

I always thought Jeff Buckley and Inger Lorre co-wrote Yard of Blonde Girls (below) but according to Wikipedia it was originally written by Audrey Clark and Lori Kramer, Boston sisters who made up The Pendulum Floors.  They released A Kicking Good Time With The Pendulum Floors on Villa Villakula. I wonder if this song is on it?  They were also in the 360s and the Paper Squares. Audrey is now in Thee Flakes, check them out, they're good!  So funny that this song originally started in Boston!  I'd love to hear the original version.  The song is magical. It is one of my favorites. It sounds like a very important and vivid dream.

Inger Lorre was the singer of The Nymphs, and released this on her solo album, Transcendental Meditation in 1999.



And here is Jeff Buckley's version.



I've always been fascinated by Inger Lorre.  She is talented, creative, rebellious and interesting, check out this interview with her to see for yourself!  And here is Imitating Angels from The Nymphs 1991 album.  According to her Twitter, she is going to play a secret show at the Viper Room in late February.
