The Burlington Northern




The Burlington Northern is both a train in Chicago, and the second effort of rock innocence from Tom Daily. Tom was a founding member of the Chicago crew Not Rebecca, and left the band to join the Smoking Popes, before those cats broke up in 1999. Tom released Happily Deceiving Culture later that year, and in January of 2001 released this fine piece of music. We apologize for not reviewing it sooner, but to tell the truthÖwe could not find it anywhere in Chicago, which should tell you how special this record is. On the verge of the "noise pop" revolution, Dailyís pleasant tunes of "World of Yawns" and "Reese Witherspoon" overflow with a delightful simplicity, something like a first kiss. Get with the cats at Thick records and enjoy this wonderfully fun record.
