SONG OF THE WEEK #83: Ashtray Boy - "Observatory Hill"

Never an easy band to track down, Ashtray Boy are (were?) certainly worthy of anyone's time. "Observatory Hill" was one of the numerous highlight's on the band's debut (which you can still find if you look carefully), The Honeymoon Suite (1993). A subtle, elegant little melody with the sort of lyrics that only confirm my belief that Randall Lee is one of rock music's greatest and most underappareciated lyricists.
