Fantastic mix, my unknown friend. If you, umfumdisi, and I ever get together, this could be the soundtrack of our Big Chill weekend.
---More like Big Cock weekend!
DISC ONE - What the Fuck is This Shit?
The Pixies - Bone Machine
My bone has a little La Machine...you should see how well it juices. I've always enjoyed the Pixies and this is a great song.
---Like the humor, love the tune.
Ghostface Killah - Daytona 500
I really enjoy the beat on this track.
---Is there even any need to debate the greatest rap crew of all time? I mean, I loved Run-DMC, but Wu-Tang just kills.
Slaughter Joe - Surely Some of Slaughter's Blues
I thought this was a good song by Dylan I hadn't heard before until I looked at the track list.
---Surely this is a takeoff on "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues" from Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited. Plus feedback!
Paul Westerberg - As Far As I Know
I always wanted to like the Replacements more. I'd enjoy hearing one or two songs, but then for some reason, couldn't listen to an entire album by them. I like this song.
---AFAIK, Westerberg is an *******, but I like this song a lot. choad, what about Tim (the album, not the wizard. also, are we officially past the point where we can just call them discs instead of albums or am I the only one still calling them albums? Really, discs are almost passe at this point)?
Hank Williams - Cold Cold Heart
This is what country music is supposed to sound like.
---Hank Sr., the original country punk. Some think he died in a hotel in downtown Knoxville, but his driver that night claims Hank died while en route to a show in Ohio.
Tonio K - H.A.T.R.E.D.
Cool, authentic punk song despite the intro.
---Actually, I prefer the intro. I've just never cared for punk. Is this from the one with the elephant on the album cover?
Desmond Dekker - 007
I'm not a big reggae fan, but this was nice to listen to.
---If this was reggae before Mr. Marley, then I'm glad he came along.
The Wonder Stuff - Unbearable
I always like happy songs about hatred.
---Reminds me of Ugly Kid Joe's "Everything About You" except this song is better.
Clarence Frogman Henry - Ain't Got No Home
This has a very Baltimore feel to it, as in, I could picture John Waters using it in one of his films.
---Mr. Henry demonstrating how he received the nickname, "Frogman." Classic.
Julian Cope - Sunspots
Whoa, I forgot about this song.
---Like the message. Very nice.
Richard Thompson - The End of the Rainbow
Dude, you gotta warn me before you slam on the brakes like that.
---Hee, hee. I have tried to get into Thompson before with absolutely no success. I can't understand why critics love him so much. His playing is too subtle even when I'm listening for that quality. However, this song...I like.
Patience & Prudence - Tonight You Belong to Me
Classic, sweet song. I'm sure someone back in 1956 thought this was decadent negro music.
---I can't help but think of "The Jerk" with Bernadette Peters and Steve Martin singing this by a campfire on the beach. P&P version is sweet like sugar.
Devo - Jocko Homo
One of my good friends in 5th grade loved Devo. He played this song for me and I thought he was weird. Devo just played two shows in the last two months locally. I'm surprised how many people still love them.
---I'm not surprised that Mark Mothersbaugh has gone on to compose a lot of cartoon music. The guitar in this track is pretty cool.
Paul McCartney - Ram On
I'm one of those people who believe that Paul McCartney died in the 60's. I mean, it's still the same guy...he's just dead inside.
---Burn! Choad - 1, "Paul McCartney" - $evera£ Mi££ion$.
I, Ludicrous - Preposterous Tales
Yum--Light & bitters! This is a great song; I've always loved it. Everyone knows someone like Ken MacKenzie.
---Gooder'un! Also, "Dermott Brereton is a Hood"!
Phil Ochs - Draft Dodger Rags
They re-instituted draft registration right before I turned 18. I remember filling out the form thinking, "If they start the draft again, this will be how my parents find out I'm gay."
---Dodger Rag...Dodger Stadium, you got 'em covered. Good song.
Meat Puppets - Lake of Fire
I like this version better than Nirvana's cover. I wish it got more airplay.
---This basically is Nirvana's version. I think Kurt just wanted to promote the Puppets.
The Times - I Helped Patrick McGoohan Escape
The Prisoner is one of my all-time favorite television shows. McGoohan was great--I always like actors who can overact just with their expressions. Coincidentally, I lived at #6 for 10 years. Be seeing you.
---Never watched "The Prisoner". But I do remember the Iron Maiden song which qouted some of the same lines as The Times do here.
Loud Family - Chicago & Miss Jovan's Land-O-Mat
Was this band trying to record the next Friends knock-off theme song?
---Wish they'd been the Quiet Family.
Ry Cooder - 3rd Base Dodger Stadium
I expected a scorching blues tune here. This song is slower than baseball itself.
---Think that's kind of the point, choad. Damn good song.
Graham Parker & the Rumour - Empty Lives
I remember seeing Graham Parker open for somebody I saw back in the 80s...perhaps it was Yes. I didn't know anything about him. Still don't. I like this song, though.
---Sounds like The Police and Elvis Costello had a baby, named it Graham Parker and passed along none of their awesomeness.
The Field Mice - Humblebee
This one is a bit too random for me.
---At last -- the lost soundtrack for 2 Girls, 1 Cup!
