Rubbing off the label background: Aeolian String Ensemble reading: from Bill Brewster & Frank Broughton: Last Night A DJ Saved My Life Bonnie Bramlett: Crazy 'Bout My Baby an early disco fave, believe it or not Babe Ruth: Doctor Love from the same Canadian weirdos who brought us "The Mexican" Eddie Kendricks: Get The Cream Off The Top another unwitting disco pioneer Sarah Cracknell: Coastal Town permanently influenced by people who once glittered off the mirror ball The Red Krayola: Born In Flames and that hi-hat technique spread to old Texan/British post-punks Necronomicon: Tips Zum Selbstmord first, turn up the fuzz bass really loud Superchunk: Lying In State ferocious version of a ferocious Verlaines song Round Four Featuring Tikiman: Find A Way dub vocalist meets house programmers Kid-606 with Aube: R8 Remix some transitional beat-and-texture Multiphonic Ensemble: A Testy Choreographer pitter-patter pitter-patter here you are Chris McGregor's Brotherhood of Breath: Andromeda superb South African jazz from the early '70s Waterson:Carthy: The Raggle Taggle Gypsies another version of the standard aka "Black Jack Davy" The Undisputed Truth: You Make Your Own Heaven And Hell Right Here On Earth a way grimmer "Ball Of Confusion"; didn't hit but sounds great now Chappaquiddick Skyline: Leave Me Alone oh, man, were New Order ever amazing New Order: Brutal wait--they still are! it's a new song! wow! Fela Anikulapo Kuti & Africa 70: Up Side Down have gotten fascinated by Fela; expect more of him on the show Charles Hayward: New World Order, Who Decides? in which Charles rocks proggily and counts to 55 or so Robbie Williams: I Wouldn't Normally Do This Kind Of Thing proof that Neil Tennant is one of the greatest living songwriters Nurse With Wound/Aranos: Generally Regarded As Safe the inside of something freshly bandaged Sideshow: Memories (Very Pleasant/Rather Sad) let's hear it for Charles Ives, as in out loud Shortee: Caverns Of Dub turntablist outlines dub, papier-maché style King Tubby: Dark Destroyer Dub the wire frame of the piñata Jazzkammer: Elevator Necklace the bits of newspaper that drift to the floor Pousseur-De Windt: Auf den Kleinen Radioapparat the hard, bitter Brecht/Eisler agitprop candy inside Alvin Curran: Animal Behavior his sample piece at the Knitting Factory Wednesday was amazing Huey & Curley: The Second Line though Curran needs a little New Orleans tonic as a follow-up Delta 5: Anticipation why has the world lost the art of playing like this, like skywriting? Solvent: Well You Needn't electrobeats, nothing to do with Monk, honest, move along Super Boiro Band: Si I Si Sa '74 Afro-big-funk; glad there's a movement to reissue this stuff King Kong: Movie Star goofy indie single that boogies right into step with Super Boiro Miriam Makeba: Ngola Kurila there is nothing to eat, but I will amuse you like so Billy Bragg: You Woke Up My Neighborhood political activists make better lovers The Sweet Inspirations: Sweet Inspiration barely a song, just an excuse for harmonies Poem Rocket: Blue Chevy Impala mass alone can account for momentum, even without much speed Rex Griffin: You Gotta Go To Work I assume yodeling like that does require lots of training, yes
