Almanac Music (Stereo Stories): Neil Young

Damian Balassone nominates his all-time favourite Neil Young song via a yarn about share-houses, possums’ arses, grunge and Dixons second-hand record store in Blackburn.

The house is a pigsty: multiple leaks, gathering mould, mice pooh in the breadbox, possum arses sticking out of the walls to block out the sunlight while they sleep, empty pizza cartons, cheap wine bottles – it’s a cross between Animal House and the Dead Poets Society.  Dessie, one of my housemates, has the distinction of discovering a decomposing mouse while he is watching TV with his new girl.

So, which Neil Young song does Balassone regard as Young’s crowning achievement? Visit Stereo Stories.
