Peter Mulvey: Old Simon Stimson
Last week onStar Maker Machine, our theme was Similes. Because the title of this song is not a simile, it was not eligible. But Old Simon Stimson uses skewed similes in a way that shows that Peter Mulvey has a talent for irony and a wonderfully sly sense of humor.
Old Simon Stimson was my introduction to the music of Peter Mulvey. I was drawn in first by the irresistible groove. I only discovered the lyrics later. Since then, I have further explored Mulvey’s music. He is now on my short list of artists who I can always trust to deliver the goods.
