Ah, Ten Foot Pole. To get this song back in the heady days of the mid nineties you needed to buy the Satanic Surfers – Ten Foot Pole split album. And you probably needed to do that at Megatunes. There were two songs from each band on the CD and this was the first TFP song. Still one of my favorite tunes, from still one of my favorite bands, and not just because lead singer Scott Radinsky is such a neat story.
I dig this one so much because ‘Walkin’ is basically an eulogy to the forest and to those natural places hidden and sacred, where, as ‘ol Cormac McCarthy so poetically wrote in the final paragraph of The Road, ” all things were older than man and hum of mystery.”
I so get that and I so love that.
