Sweet, swirly, sullen, and swoony. Silky, sorrowful, sad, and sugary. Some sensational songs. Spoken, sung, sincere. Sleep, sigh, and spin. Sssss.
March 22, 2003: Fill-in for Gaylord
Listen to this show: Pop-up player!
|All On Fire
|The Evening Drag
|I had a dream a where Don Ho was singing this while trying to coax someone not to jump out of a hotel window. I swear it!
|The Real Tuesday Weld
|When Cupid Met Psyche
|Antony & The Johnsons
|Cripple and The Starfish
|split single with Current 93
|It sounds lovely, but don't try this at home! Imagine the despair when you chop off your fingers and a starfish does not grow in their place. Argggh!
|You Are Not My First Love
|After months in rural Minnesota, I am honoured to return and sit in for Gaylord. It feels like home here. Actually, it's nothing like actual home, but it's a metaphoric home. Please forgive my grasping attempts to master the new (to me) mixing board. Great to be here!
|Band Of Holy Joy
|Capture My Soul
|Love Never Fails
|This is the kind of song that would make me feel all bold as a teenager, and then I would wear nail polish or something to school and get my ass kicked by the football team. Ah, sweet memories of youth!!
|An update on an earlier tune about being told what to do and then not doing what you are told. If you see Veda, ask her to demonstrate "helicopter dancing".
|Come Out 2night
|A nice "young, dumb and full of cum" anthem from a band that I miss.
|All These Records
|A true story. If you like early Go Betweens/Cannanes type Australian pop, you will love this cd long time.
|Odd and brilliant album where each artist is given 60 seconds to fill; Robert Wyatt, Andy Partridge, so many others.
|All Shook Up
|Honey For Dinner
|I usually resist funny cover versions, but the way she seems to be singing the melody in a sideways manner I find disturbing and captivating.
Rebel Wussy Pop
|Mouth Of Babes
|All babies are the devil incarnate. At least it often sounds that way on this cd, where the sounds/noises of babies are manipulated into a dark industrial soundscape.
|I Hate Rainbows
|Tray Full Of Lab Mice
|A sweet anti lullaby for grown up children who hate.
|The Montgolfier Brothers
|The World Is Flat
|The World Is Flat
|Being an adult must really suck! Listen to this just after a divorce and you'll probably want to hang yourself. Pretty, though.
|The Go Betweens
|Suicide At Home
|Live in Germany
|A happy tune about...suicide! At home! Don't try this at home! A friend recorded this off the radio for me, I'm not sure if it's on the any Go Betweens recordings.
|I Can't Believe You Actually Died
|For about a week I couldn't stop playing this and nobody even died.
|Songs About Cats
|I'm a sucker for artists that have cats as a muse. Pooka, Big Orange, Vladimir, Sendy...now all my cat friends have a 'web presence'.
|Oddly, contains an ex member of indie rock band The Wedding Present.
Indie Death Pop!
|Mum & Dad
|The Electric Mistress
|Mum & Dad
|Down On Your Knees! Lick My Shoe! Worship me, you grimy little cretin! Ah, it's kinda refreshing to hear such an over the top ode to s & m. The whole cd is pretty twisted.
|To William, In The Night
|Just found this in the new bin, and was taken by the wierd sexual psychedelic funk. Some P-Funk players backing her up, I think.
|Wicker Man Soundtrack
|You know, it was Saturday night and I was kinda hoping everyone was somewhere sexin'.
|Dawn Chorus (excerpt)
|Mantras for sexin'?
|The Good News & The Bad News
|Everything Is Beautiful In It's Own Way
|Not Sexy. That's Tex Perkins, of The Cruel Sea & Beasts Of Bourbon getting busted for busking.
|Smoking In The Dark
|Struts & Shocks
|A really comforting song...she was in the group Syrup USA and I think Helium as well, but these are her best songs.
Sexin', Buskin', and Smokin'
|Here I Am I Always Am
|ex Headcoatee from her awesome and psychotic solo album.
|The Song Of Capitol Investment Overseas
|That scream (of Dagmar Krause) just seems the perfect sound for how many feel after the war broke out. Scary.
|Sweet Canadian folk tune from an album that features Mary Margaret O'Hara (but not on this song). Definately the bands' most ambitious record yet.
|Over The Rhine
|This song, to me, is the soundtrack to an amazing friendship I had for awhile. It's the first time I've played it for anyone else and it felt wierd. Hope you liked it!
|The Long Honeymoon
|Sounds best while pissed and happy at a pub, but Mary is always a gem.
Dementia, Peace, and Drink
|Ellis Island Sound
|Ellis Island Sound
|Happy electronic based pop from Wisdom Of Harry/State River Widening folks.
|My Mess I Made
|The dj Screwing Up
|Several At Once
|I freaked out..."omygodihavesolittletimeleftandwhoknowswheniwillbeback...." and I missed a cue and then just piled a bunch of things on, including some locked grooves from a Genesis P Orridge 7 inch. It was fun to make an audio mess!
|Black Eyed Susan
|Knw yr Own
|From a comp on the Knw Yr Own label, an untypical folk singer worth looking into.
|I have no idea why the s & m theme keeps returning, but the dark and sinister version of this Bobby Vinton hit is hard to resist.
Chaotic Puppy Ending
