March 8, 2019: WFMU Marathon Show #1 w/ Matt Warwick!!!
Listen to this show: Pop‑up player!
2019 makes it 40 years since my family skidded onto the tarmac at JFK. 'Twas the culmination of a disorienting 15-month long emigration process from the U.S.S.R with stops in Austria and Italy along the way. Remembering this anniversary also made me think of 1979 in another way - as a year in which so many phenomenal debut albums came into existence (Unknown Pleasures! A Trip to Marineville! This Heat!). And this, freeformists, is how my 2019 WFMU premium was born!
With all material recorded especially for this compilation, Your Song, My Foot! Volume III: The 1979 Edition is brimming with cover versions and re-imaginings of tracks found on some of the killerest debut LP's of 1979! On cassette for extra wow and flutter, the premium comes with a download code for those in love with modern living!
The crackerjack artists doing the covering include:
Phew, Tomutonttu, Stuart Chalmers, The Righteous Yeah (Michael Morley of the Dead C), Ed Bear, Mike Cooper, German Army, Natalia Beylis, Strotter Inst., Storm Bugs, The Dead Mauriacs, Infinite Article (Robert Horton & Edward Guerriero), The Pheromoans, and Richard Thomas!
The humdinger of a cover drawing is by John Godbert, the very same artist who drew the cover of The Fall's 1979 seminal debut LP - Live at the Witch Trials! John says, "It’s based on a wooden statue of a female figure that was found in a loch in the Scottish Highlands in the 19th century. She was a goddess who protected the loch & turned out to be 5,000 yrs old. This is very “Witch Trials” related, & MES would have liked it."
More than much gratitude to John and all of the musicians for their wunderschnapps contributions!!!
