September 2, 2003: Take this Labor Day and shove it

Listen to this show:

(* = new)

Artist Track Album Comments New Approx. start time
  I slept like ass last night. Which makes no sense because I spent the entire day out and about, riding shotgun on a Jersey voyage that took me to old hangouts near n' dear to my heart in exotic places like Trenton, Princeton, and New Brunswick.
  Too bad none of that helped me sleep more than a winky, then fumbling through this radio show (my first attempt at monkeying with the Accuplaylist system, which I'm delighted to call a stunning success), and then coming home to make a needlessly complicated dinner involving both vegetables and bratwurst. (I have this stupid theory that eating something bad for you can be cancelled out by eating something good for you in the next bite. Which is how I completely grossed out a friend of mine by once having a glass of soy milk with a cheeseburger.)
V3  Another Exterminator Eaten by Bugs   Psychic Dance Hall  The late Jim Shepard's magnum opus, if you ask me. His suicide = the loss of a true creative genius -- the kind of guy who cut right through all the baloney and said things that really needed saying. For a few weird minutes in the mid 90s, bands like V3 got major label record deals that flopped, but resulted in amazing albums that are now available in bulk for a buck or two the whole world over. This song's not on that record, but if you ever see "Photograph Burns" anywhere (and you will, believe me) pick it up.     
Meat Puppets  Up on the Sun   Up on the Sun      0:05:48 )
Swell  Get Higher   Bastards and Rarities: 1989-1994    *   0:09:44 )
Mars Ill  Alpha Male   Backbreakanomics    *   0:13:51 )
Laughing Clowns  Sometimes (I Just Can't Live with Anyone)   Tales from the Australian Underground 2xCD  compilation    0:17:51 )
Mick Jagger  Lucky in Love   She's the Boss  Mick has some serious girlass going on in the picture on the back of this record. I wish I could blame my use of the world "girlass" on someone else, but alas, I think I just made it up.    0:21:53 )
Ron and Candy  Plastic Situation   Inner City Sounds  compilation  *   0:26:34 )

          0:36:27 )
Lifesavas  It's Over   Spirit in Stone    *   0:36:47 )
Styrenes  Anything   We Care, So You Don't Have To  I think I want this song played at my wedding. Which is odd, because it's a song about doubting everything. But still -- what a sentiment, and who better to put it forth than former Pagans screamer Mike Hudson. A pity he's no longer involved with the band.    0:41:17 )
Emory Swank  Center City   7"      0:44:25 )
Joey Ramone  Maria Bartoromo   Don't Worry About Me  I remember walking past CBGB's a few days after the WTC attacks, and thinking that I was, in some weird way, glad that Joey had died before it happened because the shock probably would've caused the guy to check out even more prematurely than he did. An FMU hit from last year which I totally forgot about until just now.    0:48:31 )

Hello  Another School Day   Velvet Tinmine  compilation    1:18:13 )
Nina Hagen  I'm a Believer   Best of Rodney on the ROQ  compilation    1:21:00 )
Boogie Boys  Fly Girl   Street Jams Part Two: Hip Hop from the Top  I know I've waxed endlessly about how important and influential the old WBLS and KISS-FM DJs like Mr. Magic, DJ Red Alert and Chuck Chillout were to my early hip hop edification, but it would be remiss of me not to again point out that this song is a personal mixtape fave from that era. Bonus points distributed for Dial-a-Joke reference. Yo, 976 prefix represent!    1:25:05 )

Dalek  From Mole Hills   From Filthy Tongue of Gods and Griots      2:11:21 )
The Stalin  ???   Killed by Death #5  I need more Japanese punk rock in my life. This kind, not the kids with the synths and the gizmos. If anyone can find the GISM LP for me, I'll sing the karaoke song of your choice while wearing a cowboy hat and flip flops and/or be your best friend.    2:26:26 )
Spacemen 3  Revolution   Playing with Fire  re-issue  *   2:28:28 )
ZZ Top  Cheap Sunglasses   Deguello      2:34:12 )
Gaunt  Spine   7"  I think this is one of truly perfect punk rock songs of the last 10 years. (Actually, I believe this song is now 11 years old, but never mind about that now.)    2:38:59 )
Citizen 23  Janie Got a Black Eye   Homework Vol. 9  compilation  *   2:42:43 )
Joe Pop-O-Pie  World-O-Morons   Joe's Third Record  Another classic period piece. Oh Joe, where have you gone.    2:44:10 )
