Neneh Cherry

Artist: Neneh Cherry
LP: 7" single
Song: "Buffalo Stance" 
[ listen ]

I'm practicing my Buffalo Stance this weekend to prepare for my visit to New York's biggest rusty city later on this week. There will be record stores. The population of Buffalo was 580,132 in 1950, when it was the 15th largest city in the country. But according to figures from the last census in 2010, only 261,310 people remained. 

More Buffalo trivia: U.S. President William McKinley was assassinated in Buffalo in 1901, when the city's population stood at approximately 352,387. Buffalo's lovely Cazenovia Park, created in 1893, was designed by landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, who also designed New York City's Central Park, and Golden Gate Park in San Francisco too. I've been instructed to eat here at some point during my stay. Oh, and if you want to know about Neneh Cherry, click here.

Hey, Alex. Stumbled upon this via a series of coincidences. Hope you are well and Buffalo enjoyed your stance. (The Artist Formerly Known as Barrydali);)

Barrydali - hi! Great to hear from you. Are you making/posting any musical mixes these days?
