Rush - The Spirit of Radio (Toronto Rocks)

Random Rock Bloggage:

Canadians have a reputation, at least among themselves, for dry, understated humor. You can catch it in the novels of Stephen Leacock, for example. I'm pretty sure the laundromat onstage in this clip is in the same tradition--but hanged if I can explain how. But hey, I'm just an un-nuanced, literal-minded Yank. I've loved this song ever since it came out. If it wasn't where the whole 80s shred-metal scene got its inspiration, it sure shoulda been!
