The Modern Lovers “Pablo Picasso”
from The Modern Lovers (Rhino 1976) —I often wonder if Jonathan Richman, who is normally quite literal, really believed Pablo Picasso was never called an asshole. Because, he probably was, quite frequently.
Primal Scream “Gentle Tuesday”
from Sonic Flower Groove (WEA 1987) —It's nice to be reminded that these guys started off making stone classic garage pyschedelic music before they really got into the drugs.
The Wonder Stuff “Red Berry Joy Town”
from The Eight Legged Groove Machine (Universal 1988) —It's probably not very nice of me to play this before Cat is awake - but this was the right place to play it, musically. She does love these guys even more than I do, and I like them a lot.
Shoes “Where Will It End”
from Ignition (Black Vinyl 2012) N —Together for 35 + years now, these original indie popsters can still chug along with an irresistible gem now and again.
The B-52's “Planet Claire”
from The B-52's CD Album (Warner Brothers 1979) —I remember the hype about these guys in New York Rocker, I bought the album the week it was released, I hated it for a couple months before I suddenly realized I loved it. I've never looked back.
Rory Gallagher “Stompin' Ground”
from Blueprint (Buddha 1973) —We do love Rory Gallagher at the record store - one of our most played artists.
Richard Thompson “The Snow Goose”
from Electric (New West 2013) N —This new Richard Thompson record is chock full of goodies encompassing all his styles. He could have thought longer about the title, though.
Van Morrison “Keep It Simple” (Lost Highway 2008) —Van singing at a very high level - well, that's happened a lot over the years.
Ben E. King “Stand By Me”
from Anthology (Rhino 1993) —Sometimes it's good to remember that the standards are classic for a reason.
Like everything else, times are approximate.
