Live set by CCR Headcleaner!

Oakland CA's CCR Headcleaner produce a riff-heavy monster din that is massive, raw, and very very druggy. The 4 members sport backgrounds in The Hospitals, Jealousy, Long-Legged Woman, and Jackie-O Motherf(&$er, and manage to sound nothing like any of those bands, while digesting some tendencies of all... and also, Doo-Wop.

Go Negativland!
Avatar    Mon. 10/21/13 3:10pm Ike:

Negativland is awful good. Scarlatina was just awful. But, also an undeniable WFMU classic. An awful classic. Or maybe classically awful? Like incorrect music, but spoken word. Incorrect words? I DON'T EVEN HAVE A BOSOM.
Avatar Mon. 10/21/13 3:20pm Scott Williams:

Oh WOW. Haven't heard "The Contra Rap" probably since I listened to Dr. Demento in the late 80s. This was a fave back then.

Oh my. Wow. Didn't know this existed.

I wish! These were 2 lucky finds - to do Rodney, I'd have to cheat. Which, you know, I SHAN'T!
Avatar Mon. 10/21/13 3:25pm tim from champaign:

Wow! I wonder if Rich Little was listening to Steinski when he made this. Best 7" so far today!

Benny Hill or at least the Banana Splits should be running around to this.

I like the actor/actress versions of the True Stories songs better than the Talking Heads versions.
Avatar    Mon. 10/21/13 4:00pm Carmichael:

I remember this as a strange movie. David Byrne in a cowboy hat, driving a limo.
Avatar    Mon. 10/21/13 4:01pm Carmichael:

Or make that a Cadillac ...
Avatar Mon. 10/21/13 4:01pm northguineahills:

I suppose that'd be a self-reflexive description of myself.

John Goodman? ok...
Avatar    Mon. 10/21/13 4:01pm Mike East:

I do love this movie. I love the version that John Goodman sings acapella when he's first "writing it"
Avatar Mon. 10/21/13 4:02pm Scott Williams:

it's a great movie! very 1986 in its "irony"
Avatar    Mon. 10/21/13 4:06pm Carmichael:

I prefer my cinematic irony statements from Ethan Hawke and Terri Polo via "Mystery Date". Also, GWAR was in it.
  Mon. 10/21/13 4:07pm Stanley The M Guy:

(It is a great movie)
Avatar Mon. 10/21/13 4:13pm northguineahills:

I've been revisiting 80s movies the last few weeks since I've had the pad to myself. Will add it to my queue. (Already listen to Vicki already all the time......)
Avatar    Mon. 10/21/13 4:16pm Mike East:

man, Carmichael - how did I miss that one?
Avatar    Mon. 10/21/13 4:17pm Mike East:

@ngh - speaking of 80's movies, I introduced my 8 yr old to Ghostbusters on Saturday. An important milestone in any child's life.
Avatar Mon. 10/21/13 4:20pm tim from champaign:

I've got the Ghostbusters 7" with an instrumental version on the b side.
Avatar    Mon. 10/21/13 4:26pm Mike East:

its funny, tim...she knew the song and started singing along when it came on. I asked, "have you seen this before?" she said she didn't...but she knew OF it. So glad its still in the cultural conscious of the youth today....there is no dana, only zuul.
Avatar Mon. 10/21/13 4:29pm Andrew Waterloo:

@Mike, I watched that with my daughter when she was 8. She then told me how we should tell her mother that we watched it.

Avatar Mon. 10/21/13 4:53pm northguineahills:

I was going to go w/ heavy, Cheri Pi, but since kg measures mass, you are more technically correct, the best kind of correct! (obviously, no references to lbs.)

Yeah, I didn't make it of course. The Spits played the next night. Nope, didn't make it to that either.

BEERSIES?????

Trying to be good today, and this talk of beersies makes it tough. Man those Exile ESBs sitting in the fridge are calling.

A plethora of micro breweries in my area -- at least 10. The pickins are plentiful, and my sobriety has been actively challenged this weekend.

C'mon folks! Let's get out good buddy Scott to the goal! If you haven't pledged yet please consider doing so during Scott's show. Think about all the excellent live bands he's brought us. Go Scott and WFMU!
  Mon. 10/21/13 5:27pm CraigD:

On Sat., I ordered a Mother's Milk stout. I'd only had sips before and it seemed OK. But trying to finish even half a glass was like detaching my tongue and ordering it to sort through a muddy grain elevator by itself. I must have autism of the tongue. Thus, I shall never be a beer peep here. Sigh.

Already done Scott. Plus, I use knit caps as sleep masks.
Avatar Mon. 10/21/13 5:39pm tim from champaign:

Serpico - I'm pretty sure there's a proper soundtrack to True Stories that has the actor/actress versions. I haven't seen a copy in ages so I always enjoy hearing the songs in the movie.

  Mon. 10/21/13 5:43pm Chris:

What do you call this beat/sound? Was popular for a while there.
Avatar    Mon. 10/21/13 5:43pm Carmichael:

Does "split 7' " mean two songs on one side? And 1 or 2 on the flip?

Craig@5:27, I couldn't agree more. But as I cannot choke the stuff down, maybe I don't get to vote on the semantics.
Avatar    Mon. 10/21/13 5:44pm Matt from Springfield:

@Chris: I call the drumming sound on post-punk bands like Adam Ant and Bow Wow Wow as the "jungle beat".
Avatar    Mon. 10/21/13 5:44pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- 'Burundi' - style drums?
Avatar Mon. 10/21/13 5:44pm Scott Williams:

that's the "Burundi Beat". a split 7" is shared by more than 1 artist

Aha, thanks Scott! It's all making sense.

Isn't that Burundi thing a variant on the Bo Diddley beat? Seems that way to my ears.
  Mon. 10/21/13 5:47pm ScottC:

1981? San Francisco -original Pretenders line-up headlining w/ Bow Wow Wow opening and - as I recall Anabelle had to be off stage at a certain time - 10:30? or the Kabuki Club would be in violation of city child labor laws
Avatar    Mon. 10/21/13 5:47pm Matt from Springfield:

@Serpico: Don't have that original cassette but I won the CD-86 Birth of Indie Pop comp from pledging to WFMU - that's a great one!

I saw Utopia at the Kabuki in '82.

damn, this song still destroys me.
Avatar    Mon. 10/21/13 5:50pm Matt from Springfield:

@Carm: "I Want Candy" is the Bo Diddley beat -- to me that involves not just the drums but also that repetitive bluesy guitar riff.

Hrm. I might debate that slightly, but definitely their best single.

I agree Matt

I've got your picture,
Upon the wall;
It hides a nasty stain that's lying there.

Grrreat pop.

"Not in Love" The guy in the song is just a class-A jerk

Meh. This song = heartbreak for Roberto in Guadalajara, summer '88.

...I recently discovered whiskey sours - it was good in the summer...

@Carmichael - Yes - born and raised. I worked at the On-Broadway and The Temple back then - did you go to any RRZ shows?
  Mon. 10/21/13 5:54pm CraigD:

So glad you did not play "I don't like reggae...."
  Mon. 10/21/13 5:54pm foo:

Why you play radio cut version of, "I'm not in love?" Sad panda.
Avatar    Mon. 10/21/13 5:55pm Cecile:

jt, do you want to know the story behind it?
Eric Stewart wanted to not jinx himself by saying I love you all the time to his new bride, so he'd come up with things like "oh, I'm not in love" to her as a joke. The band heard him and they made it into a more angsty song.

Mr. Stewart and his bride celebrated 40 years of marriage recently.

On the same page with you, Stanley!

@RRN63: That's one of those classic, "canon" cocktails but I've never tried. Good in summer you say?
Avatar    Mon. 10/21/13 5:55pm Cecile:

foo, it's an a 45, it's all 45s this week.

I love Felix Kubin.
Avatar Mon. 10/21/13 5:55pm Scott Williams:

Sorry foo, it's because we're only playing singles this week
Avatar    Mon. 10/21/13 5:56pm Matt from Springfield:

Swell background story, Cecile. Thanks!

Kubin = Bargeld on Robo?

nominating Ray price/Ooh La La for segue of the month! great show Scott
Avatar    Mon. 10/21/13 5:57pm Cecile:

Mr. Stewart later got over himself and expressed himself more freely. Also, Creme and Godley prevented the song from being a samba. For that there is a special place in heaven for them.
Avatar    Mon. 10/21/13 5:57pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- mostly whiskey, water & lemon Matt. I tell 'em not so much sugar...
Avatar Mon. 10/21/13 5:57pm northguineahills:

Yeah, Cecile make me look like an ignoramus, and for that, I'm grateful.
  Mon. 10/21/13 5:57pm foo:

Ah. All forgiven. Thx.
Avatar    Mon. 10/21/13 5:57pm Stanley:

I gotta go to the can, man!
Avatar Mon. 10/21/13 5:57pm northguineahills:

Oh crap! Thanks Scott! You killed!
Avatar    Mon. 10/21/13 5:58pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...altho' whiskey is good in winter for warmsies...

Clicky Stars don't like being clicked.
Avatar Mon. 10/21/13 5:58pm Serpico:

"warmsies" hah!
Avatar    Mon. 10/21/13 5:58pm Matt from Springfield:

Like a lemonade 'n bourbon -- sounds worth trying, I like both separately. RYE whiskey is excellent, for warmsies! :)
Avatar    Mon. 10/21/13 5:58pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...whiskey not so much an everyday for me...
Avatar    Mon. 10/21/13 5:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Have a good evening, everyone!
