Babylon Dance Band (When I'm Home Single)

Kentucky doesn't necessarily have the warmest place in my heart, but I do like this record; Remains Of The Beat kind of reminds me of The Dicks a little bit. Anyway, In short I lived in a small town called Morehead, KY for a summer when I was a young man. Things didn't work out, I didn't fit in, and as a result; I found myself hitchhiking on Route 64 with a twenty dollar bill in my pocket across the state. I remember walking through Louisville at 3 o'clock in the mourning, looking at a sign that said "Welcome to Louisville Home Of The Kentucky Derby", on my way over a bridge that spanned into Indiana. I fell asleep under a tree in a small industrial park, and woke up in the mourning with a snake on me. I turned around, and hitchhiked all the way back to Pennsylvania. Maybe if I could have hooked up with the right people things could have been different. Babylon Dance Band were one of Louisville, KY’s earliest punk bands; they were around from 1978 – 1983.The band was formed by childhood friends, Chip Nold, and Tim Harris. Tara Key was recruited from the band “No Fun”, and after multiple drummers, Sean Mulhall, joined the group through a newspaper ad. Their recorded output was a cut on a four way split titled “New Accounts”, two singles, and a reunion LP in 1994 called “Four On One”. If you want to read more on the band, check out this site.
