like any indie nerd fan, I have fantasies of being a pop star, and I even formed a band with indie it girl lupe nunez-fernandez and our pal trevor dinmore once called (joke name only) dork bogarde. we wrote and recorded four songs in one night and pretty much never did anything ever again as a group. our songs were called “wagamama,” “freedom fries,” “country squire” (this one could have been our epic hit I believe) and “sandy denny,” who inspired us in the summer of 2003 a lot. we even read her biography, which is pretty good and another reminder that joe boyd is the only person alive who remembers the 1960s. anyway, this article about the forthcoming batch of sandy denny-related music and programs reminded me of her.
