Time zone: central


The Afghan Whigs “Crime Scene Part One”
from Black Love (Elektra Records 1996)


Young Fresh Fellows “Sharing Patrol Theme”
from Topsy Turvy (Popllama 1995)


The Jam “Eton Rifles”
from Setting Sons (Polydor 1979) —first #3 hit for these Mods from Surrey


The Dead Milkmen “Laundromat Song”
from Cream of The Crop (BMG Special Product 1998) —From a best-of of their material, this funny punk jam was originally released on "Big Lizard In my Backyard" in 1985


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.


Black Flag “Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie”
from Damaged (SST 1981)


Love and Rockets “Motorcycle”
from Love and Rockets (Beggars Banquet) —Ripping tune from a band that's never really been given their fair shake. Shame, since they blow their peers away.


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


Buzzcocks “Promises”
from Singles Going Steady CD Album (IRS 1979) —2 years before it came out in the UK, this compilation of singles came out in the US


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.


Adam & The Ants “Day I Met God”
from Dirk Wears White Sox (Do It Records 1979) —The band's name, on the original vinyl sleeve, was misprinted as Adam & The Antz


The Misfits “Skulls”
from Collection (Astralwerks 1986) —you think grimy horrorcore hip-hop has some crazy bad lyrics? meet the Misfits


Big Black “Colombian Necktie”
from Songs About Fucking (Touch And Go 1987) —From an album you can't name on the radio and from the mind of Steve Albini, famed noise-nick producer


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")


Dead Boys “I Don't Wanna Be No Catholic Boy”
from We Have Come for Your Children (Sire Records 2004)


Wire “Pink Flag” CD Album (Enigma) —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


The Tweeds “I Need That Record”
from Teen Line Volume 2 Powerpop and Poprock 45s : S-to-U (Hyped to Death www.hyped2death.com 1981) —A song on 45 about collecting records! Found through the lovely library at KDHX, more in line with the usual style of the program. This compilation's from 2001, but the actual 45 came out in '81


Dead Kennedys “Saturday Night Holocaust”
from Give Me Convenience or Give Me Death (Alternative Tentacles www.alternativetentacles.com 1987) —Jello Biafra and crew are always up for trouble. Love this off-kilter tune


Man or Astro-man? “Escape Through The Air Vent”
from Is It... Man Or Astro-man? (Esterus 1993) —A little outside the usual perview of the program, but apt, I believe.


Faith No More “Anne's Song”
from Introduce Yourself (Slash 1987) —Pre-Mike Patton Faith No More had a more funk-based sound, but still had the raw attitude


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


Youth of Today “One Family”
from Break Down the Walls (Wishingwell 1985) —Pretty much the template for modern American hardcore


Mojo Nixon “You Can't Kill Me”
from Whereabouts Unknown (Mojo Nixon 1995)


Jawbreaker “Save Your Generation”
from Dear You (Geffen 1995)


New York Dolls “Bad Girl”
from New York Dolls (Mercury 1973) —Raucus protopunk at its finest


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.


Mission of Burma “That's When I Reach for My Revolver”
from Signals, Calls and Marches (2008 Reissue) (Ryko/Rhino 1981) —This 2008 re-issue took a 5 song EP and fleshed it out to nearly full-length album status
