SongoftheDay: ASTRONOMY by VOIVOD

Voivod_4Well, again it looks as though I may have put the gravy in my mouth before the fries and cheese.  Okay, maybe the dude in this band isn’t called “Piggy” because his name was so inaudible after all.  It looks like they all have nicknames in that band.  Okay, fuck me, I’m an asshole, but I’ll never deny that.  Also, in the haze my hash-laden mind, I can somewhat recall being bummed when I found out that Denis “Piggy” D’Amour died in 2005 after a long battle with cancer.  Well, fuck me again.  Anyway, I know we should all be listening to some of their original music, but you can all do that on your own.  This cover is too good not to play.  Oddly enough, a few shitheads used to call me “piggy” when I was a kid.  It wasn’t because I was in one of the best metal bands in the world – it was because I was a fat fuck.
