Big Mama Thornton “Me And My Chauffeur”

I went to find her grave in Inglewood last weekend. She apparently was so poor that she was just buried in what amounted to a “potter’s grave” with a bunch of other people on the outer edge of the cemetary. Sad, but ironically, she left us with a lot of wealth.

Hot Snakes “Golden Brown” (Drive Like Jehu cover)

Footage I took of them at FYF. This song probably hadn’t been performed live for well over 15 years.

The Bats “North By North”

A classic pop song no one knows.

Subway Sect “Chain Smoking”

Both Anna Karina and Subway Sect worthy of love here.

Serena-Maneesh “I Just Want To See Your Face”

Scandinavia rocking the shoegaze……………

Nadja “The Smell Of Bastards”

The Blood Of Heroes ” Hecatomb”

This is a whole bunch of sounds that wonderfully don’t belong together.

The Feed-back “The Feed-back” [1970]

Ennio Morricone and company created one mighty avant-breakbeat.

There’s nothing like a love song to warm my heart.

Max Romeo “Socialism Is Love”
