The Boarders - When I'm Up I Can't Get Down

from From a Hole in the Ground by Doug Hubley



The Boarders: Doug Hubley, guitar and vocal • Gretchen Schaefer, bass • Jonathan Nichols-Pethick, drums. A fabulous song by a hit-or-miss Celtic rock group, Oysterband. I have neither the dignity to spare nor the constitution for the lifestyle depicted here, but I sure can relate. A staple of the Boarders repertoire, one of my all-time favorites, recorded in the current basement on Oct. 15, 1995.
