Places That Are Gone
by Tommy Keene
Tommy Keene was one of the best new wave/power pop acts of the 80s. Sadly under rated because like a lot of my favorite music from the 80s the garage jangle and rock and roll was "unfashionable" and his career never took off. But those who were into Alex Chilton, Marshal Crenshaw, The Replacements etc. knew this was greatness unrewarded. Review from the EP this song came from at AllMusic: "magnificent collection of intelligent, guitar-based pop was the first glimpse many got of the much-written-about great pop hope from Washington, D.C. Shades of the Who, the Byrds, and Big Star shine through in memorable, hook-laden songs and strong vocal harmonies, with Keene's fluid guitar work adorning every track. "
This clip is from the same time period he worked as Paul Westerberg's solo touring right hand man.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music, because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..." —Nick Hornby, Songbook
