Time zone: central
Fugazi “Margin Walker”
from 13 Songs (Dischord 1989) —if you don't love Fugazi, I don't know what you want out of life.
Romeo Void “A Girl In Trouble (A Temporary Thing)”
from Instincts (Columbia 1985) —Debora Iyall, lead singer of Romeo Void, was the Beth Ditto of her day.
The Fall “Psykick Dancehall”
from Dragnet (Step Forward 1979) —too few people are tuned into The Fall's quirky post-punk jams. I don't know why, but that's just how it is and it's a bummer
Husker Du “Something I Learned Today”
from Zen Arcade (SST 1984) —unintentional, but 2 sets in a row ended with an SST release. how odd.
The Cure “Jumping Someone Else's Train”
from Three Imaginary Boys (Fiction) —Old school the Cure, before they got poppy and happy. Blah to that, I say. Bring on the misery.
Bad Religion “No Control” (Epitaph / Ada 1989) —Their fourth and second-best album (I will always have serious love for "Stranger Than Fiction")
Wire “Pink Flag” CD Album (Harvest 1977) —A bit of a slower paced number to break up the breakneck speed we'd been travelling all night.
The Velvet Underground “Rock & Roll”
from Loaded (Rhino 1970) —not quite punk, not quite proto-punk, not quite a rock band. hard to describe their music without having first heard it, but their impact is huge
Ramones “I Don't Wanna Go Down To The Basement”
from Ramones (Sire Records 1976) —A deeper cut from this album that's filled with hits. A sure-fire never-miss debut from one of the biggest names in American punk
Oingo Boingo “Cinderella Undercover”
from Anthology (Hip-O Records 1999) —this compilation of Danny Elfman's band's work is a must have for newbies, but if you've got any of their other best-ofs, you can safely pass on it.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
