Blur! I love this cover.

Keepin it jammin!
Avatar 1:06pm Franco Twinkie:

My condition? I'm still in my pajamas and can't see anyway of getting dressed and leaving the house.
Avatar 1:06pm Ursula1000:

hi BC, Franco! to PJ or not to PJ---that is the question
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:07pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Franco, i just made the transition into an outdoor outfit, but it's so dang HOT out there—eek!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:08pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

this is a cover?
Avatar 1:09pm Franco Twinkie:

Really! How hot, San Francisco hot?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

not San Gabriel hot!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

SF hot is what? 78 degrees?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

yep!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:11pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Hopey Sockmonkey: my heat-hating sweetie moved from Tel Aviv to Pasadena and finally moved to SF to bask in the glorious fog and chilly winds
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:13pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

that was a really close cover
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:14pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

I do miss the San Francisco weather. Although today in Hollywood it's nice and cool and overcast.
Avatar 1:14pm Franco Twinkie:

Admittedly, it is unsettling for me to be in San Francisco when it it truly hot, I always think I don't need this crap, this is what I come up here to get away from.
Avatar 1:15pm Ursula1000:

yeah Sleeper's Louise Wener sounds so much like Debbie Harry
Avatar 1:16pm Franco Twinkie:

Pasadena is no place to live if you hate hot weather.
Avatar 1:17pm Martinibomb:

I had to live in Pasadena for a summer and it sucked! Hated it - Portland only gets a couple really hot days in the summer
Avatar 1:19pm Mr Fab:

Hi all, Im awake now! That was a real nice Pretenders cover. (Why was it called “Brass in Pocket,” anyway.)
Avatar 1:19pm Domenic:

Hi taking a break from outside carpentry work. 90 degrees. Upper 80's. my wife just came down from working at home and said "The Stones did it better" on this Shed Seven.. But I like hearing covers, the originals have been around a long time. Liked Suede!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:20pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Mr. Fab: i have wondered, too. Why not "I'm Special?"
Avatar 1:21pm Franco Twinkie:

My place in Pasadena was upstairs with lots of west facing windows. One day I was painting and I felt a little woozy. I looked at the thermometer on my drafting table. It was 108!
Avatar 1:21pm Ursula1000:

I'd ask Chrissie Hynde but she's a kook
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:21pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

The first line *is* Got Brass In Pocket. . .
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:22pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

I took it to mean "coin". But who is knowing?
Avatar 1:23pm Martinibomb:

ohhh man I havent heard this in forever!
Avatar 1:24pm Ursula1000:

LOVE this cover---sorry Gary
Avatar 1:25pm Martinibomb:

I picked this up on cd way bac when yeh very cool cover and ahead of the curve as far as covering Gary Numan - the mid 90s were kinda his low point
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:25pm chresti:

I really hate hot weather.
Avatar 1:26pm Martinibomb:

I saw him play at Berbatis Pan in 1996 and a friend of mine opened so got to hang/chat in the green room
Avatar 1:26pm Bri The Beatnik:

Cool!
Avatar 1:26pm Ursula1000:

he seems very humble from all the recent interviews I've seen
Avatar 1:26pm Ursula1000:

hi Bri!
Avatar 1:27pm Martinibomb:

I just helped my buddy setup his keyboards etc. and got to hang with gary numan fair trade. Gary Numan is totaly humble/super super nice person.
Avatar 1:27pm Franco Twinkie:

You cannot know how I suffer when Chresti is hot.
Avatar 1:28pm Mr Fab:

Ha, as a Neil Young fan I remember being fairly baffled by this
Avatar 1:29pm Domenic:

Lovely "Only Love Can Break Your Heart"
Avatar 1:29pm Bri The Beatnik:

Hey Ursula!
Avatar 1:29pm Ursula1000:

I like the "idea" of hot weather but my reality is wearing tropical threads in the Fall. Growing up in Miami Beach and that sticky feeling of humidity---yuck
Avatar 1:30pm Bri The Beatnik:

This was the first version I ever heard, and then when I heard the Neil Young version I was like woah.
Avatar 1:31pm Ursula1000:

I kinda like this one better!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:31pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Hi, Bri!
Avatar 1:31pm Bri The Beatnik:

Hey Granny!
Avatar 1:33pm Martinibomb:

oh man! I was just thinking about The Model and was about to post about hearing it first by Big Black and then that's how I learned about Kraftwerk - then u play a cover nice
Avatar 1:33pm Domenic:

Have to get to the Neil Young version after this.. He's O, but never got the fascination.... like the sister-in-laws..
Avatar 1:34pm Franco Twinkie:

I was fifteen when After The Gold Rush came out. I would listen to that song over and over. I had yet to find out how true it was.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

I wonder how many covers of The Model there are?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:34pm Linda Lee:

me too, Franco. :-)
hi friends!
Avatar 1:34pm Ursula1000:

oh right that Big Black version---it was pretty note for note yeah?
Avatar 1:35pm Martinibomb:

@dom I grew up not really diggin' neil young I will admit.. but now i freaking love him. hah
Avatar 1:35pm Ursula1000:

Avatar 1:35pm Franco Twinkie:

Linda Lee!
Avatar 1:35pm Bri The Beatnik:

Linda!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm Linda Lee:

how are you dear? i've missed much!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm Linda Lee:

hi Bri!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:35pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

i was lucky that my best friend in high school (mid-80s) had two decade-older siblings who shared their excellent taste in music with her. That's how i learned about Kraftwerk
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm chresti:

Hi LL!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Captain Linda Lee!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm Linda Lee:

you were, Granny! same with me, really, in the 60s & 70s. older friends, older siblings. so lucky. we did well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm Linda Lee:

hi Chresti!
Avatar 1:38pm Martinibomb:

^Gran when I first moved to PDX I worked graveyard at Kinkos and my co-worker was from Chicago scene friends with jim o-rourke etc.. and he really schooled me on music. I totally owe my musical education to him big time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:38pm Listener Bob in PGH:

Finally made it back from lunch. Hello, how is everyone?
Avatar 1:39pm Ursula1000:

hiya Bob
Avatar 1:40pm Bri The Beatnik:

Hey Bob! I’m good!
Avatar 1:40pm Martinibomb:

Whadya have for lunch, Bob?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42pm Linda Lee:

if this isn't all 1991.. well.
Avatar 1:42pm Bri The Beatnik:

This is so beautiful! I wanna be by a beach listening to this and just closing my eyes. Reminds me of music mom listens to to fall asleep
Avatar 1:42pm Mr Fab:

Dont think i paid any attention to Britpop in the 90s. Portishead was my fave band of the era, but they werent really considered “Britpop,” were they?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:43pm Linda Lee:

must say, i didn't pay much attention to anything but my own sordid business!
Avatar 1:43pm Ursula1000:

nah I'd put them in a Trip Hop category ala Massive Attack
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:44pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

LL & MB: shout out to the music mentors!
Avatar 1:44pm Ursula1000:

we were such anglophiles living in Miami Beach at the time reading The Face, i-D, Melody Maker going from Acid House into Madchester
Avatar 1:45pm Domenic:

Slowdive was nice. Never heard of any of these groups.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

The only music i attended in the 1990s was the Bay Area scene. I am so ignorant of most other music of that time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45pm Linda Lee:

yes!!! that was quite lucky in the 60s especially
Avatar 1:46pm Ursula1000:

sadly I wasn't able to fit in Pulp's Michel Polnareff cover or Swervedriver doing Magic Bus---tons of goodies from this era
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:46pm Linda Lee:

now my mentor is Ursula1000 :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:46pm Listener Bob in PGH:

@MB - actually had breakfast for lunch! French toast and veggie sausage patties, strawberries fresh from the backyard garden. Dee-lish!
Avatar 1:47pm Ursula1000:

Domenic---the first 2 Slowdive albums are quintessential Shoegaze---really sublime stuff
Avatar 1:47pm BC Sterrett:

Breakfast for lunch here as well :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Yep, didn't listen to any of these bands in the 90's. Appreciating the education here.
Avatar 1:48pm Bri The Beatnik:

Dinner for breakfast here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

Bri! I love breakfast for dinner and leftover dinner for breakfast
Avatar 1:48pm Bri The Beatnik:

Slow dive is beautiful Domenic! I highly recommend them!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:49pm Linda Lee:

i always love some breakfast at night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:49pm Granny Spicy Tuna (e/em):

But Bri, have you even slept yet?!?! LOL!
Avatar 1:49pm Bri The Beatnik:

Oasis singing “Cum on feel the noize”! I died for a second
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:50pm Linda Lee:

cum on feel the nose...
Avatar 1:50pm Ursula1000:

haha I can see the Gallagher brothers unibrow waving up and down
Avatar 1:50pm Bri The Beatnik:

Oh yeah Granny I have! I passed out last night around 10ish, woke up around 9ish, but wasn’t feeling good, finally got up it was almost 1
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:50pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Haha Linda, we used to sing that as well!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51pm Linda Lee:

ain't that what he's sayin ..?
Avatar 1:51pm Bri The Beatnik:

I brought my dinner into the bedroom, but was too tired to finish it so I just ate it for breakfast
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:51pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

I have a secret past of being a HUGE Oasis fan.
Avatar 1:51pm Martinibomb:

heheh same here :-D
Avatar 1:51pm Bri The Beatnik:

Actually, they really take this song and make it feel their own song
Avatar 1:52pm Bri The Beatnik:

Same!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:52pm Linda Lee:

i prefer it. the vocal on the original chafes me.
Avatar 1:53pm Bri The Beatnik:

Both other versions don’t make me feel good!
Avatar 1:53pm Bri The Beatnik:

Anytime Quiet Riot comes on I feel sick
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:53pm Linda Lee:

that's who that was? oi
Avatar 1:55pm Bri The Beatnik:

Well, Slade sang it originally, but Quiet riot had a hit in the states
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55pm Linda Lee:

right right!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:55pm Linda Lee:

Avatar 1:56pm Mr Fab:

Ha, Quiet Riot’s version was big with the Valley dudes.
Avatar 1:56pm Ursula1000:

QR was so note for note that people probably thought it was original. Yeah The Monkees did this one originally
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

Yes, The Monkees! (I also have a not so secret past as a big Monkees fan.)
Avatar 1:57pm Martinibomb:

Avatar 1:58pm Mr Fab:

Hey, Im STILL a Monkees fan.
