I'm going to see Raleigh's legendary The Connells tomorrow night, opening for the Old 97s in a free downtown Raleigh event. I was never a big fan of The Connells back in their heyday; in fact, truth be known, I couldn't stand them. But now that I'm here living in their hometown, it seems fitting to give them another chance, so I've been listening to a few of their albums of late. I still don't like them but at least they don't cause my ears to bleed quite as much as they once did.
Anyway, while Googling around, I found this Old Grey Whistle Test segment on the Raleigh music scene, circa 1985.
