Time zone: central
Medicine “Time Baby 3”
from Sounds of Medicine Vinyl (American) —The band that intro'ed me to washy feedback guitars and Shoegaze-y stuff in general. It was a gig at The Galaxy on Delmar in 1995 but that's a whole other story.
Pixies “Wave of Mutilation”
from Pixies At The BBC (4AD 1998) —One of my favorite songs. I first heard it on the movie 'Pump Up The Volume'
Freekbass “Fame (Live)”
from Body Over Mind (Gemini Records 2001) —This cover covers my love of Bowie and funk all at once. Freekbass takes that famous Carlos Alomar riff and transmogrifies it into a minute long bass intro
Johnny Socko “Old School Master”
from Triple Live (Triple R 2001) —All time great ska band doing their tongue in cheek rap tribute to old school video games. And that's 'old school' in the context of 1980's arcade quarter eating arcade monsters.
The Dead Milkmen “Punk Rock Girl”
from Beelzebubba (Ryko/Rhino 1988) —I've always been fond of this song (and it's tasty guitar solo). They were here not to long ago: http://kdhx.org/music/live-performances/dead-milkmen-6-8-13
Indigo Girls “Power Of Two”
from 1200 Curfews (Epic unk 1995) —One of my favorite live albums. Not a bad performance. This was at their peak, I should think.
Herbie Hancock “Edith And The Kingpin (with Tina Turner)”
from River: The Joni Letters (Verve 2007) —Tina Turner laying out delicate, jazzy vocals in a brilliantly unexpected way. Passion, she's always shown that. Passion sometimes trumps technique. Not here, acquire this track.
