Wringing out the old stuff background music: Neu!: Für Immer reading: Thomas Rogers: from The Confession of a Child of the Century James Brown: It's A New Day beginning some kind of embargo Adventures In Stereo: A Brand New Day yet they don't seem to be able to tell what day it is Hüsker Dü: New Day Rising trembling with whatever their reaction is The Dynamic Soundmakers: A New Day Has Begun an airy instrumental from a comp of a label that didn't exist Mary Margaret O'Hara: A New Day carved out as into a plank of wood, note by note The Cure: New Day imagine a vampire's reaction to that announcement Buffalo Daughter: New Rock translate that into German, then into Shibuya-ese Bob Dylan: New Pony heard Palace play this blues in '93 and thought it was an Oldham original Palace Music: New Partner in commemoration of which, his Elvis/PSB's nod Hank Williams: I'll Have A New Body (I'll Have A New Life) and in the meantime painfully aware of the current one The Holmes Brothers: The New And Improved Me somehow this belongs next to the South Park movie's "I Can Change" Joe Meek and the Blue Men: I Hear A New World yes, but Joe? you were hearing things! Curtis Mayfield: New World Order R.I.P. Mos Def: New World Water a rather different take on the "Sail Away" idea, with a similar air Spoonie Gee and the Treacherous Three: New Rap Language at the time, with Kool Moe Dee rhyming at max speed, it really was Shizuo: New Kick fermented jailhouse-bootleg-liquor style Lene Lovich: New Toy written by Thomas Dolby, with what in mind? The Slits: Newtown the only major punk band that played like their favorite van tapes? Horace Andy: New Broom and I hope you're happy now... honest... Arab Strap: New Birds same bitterness, more muttering Charles Mingus: New Now Know How muttering limited to the bass, more sly cheer Y2K survival tips from The Onion DNA: New New named probably on the same paradigm as all their edge-fests Gram Parsons: The New Soft Shoe as in "I'm saying new but I really don't mean it" The Sensational Nightingales: New Jerusalem see above The Damned: New Rose a familiar course, raced through in record time Skull Kontrol: New Rock Critic more sarkasm, spat like a curse The Fall: New Puritan also beginning an embargo: a BBC session, the pinnacle of their first phase SFT: New Song stretched like gray putty, distended, sprinkled with granular sugar Howard Jones: New Song "This is Howard Jones, right?" Kelly called down. "Score one!" Scream: New Song novelty was not actually among their many strong points Ben Lee: New Song just how strong a concept of history does he have? Fossil: Love Is The Alcohol figured I had to play an actual new song sometime in the show Otis Redding and Carla Thomas: New Year's Resolution recorded, most likely, sometime in like March Raymond Scott: New Year's Eve In A Haunted House is there a greater 20th-c. master of program music?
