And you guys drew the short straw.
Wait – The Beatles.
Stroll On – The Yardbirds. Love the song but it reminded me of Paul McCartney’s fairly recent version of Honey Hush, to the Yardbird’s detriment.
I Ain’t Cursed – Peter Blast. I know nothing about him but he rocks and I just bought the album “A Plush Horse.”
Broken Hands – Mick Taylor. Very easy to picture Mick & Keith singing this on Exile. Little Mick gets it over and the guitars are typically glorious.
Don’t Mess With Cupid (live) – Gang War. This is Johnny Thunders with Wayne Kramer of the MC5 doing an Otis Redding song.
Where Eagles Dare – The Misfits. I ain’t no goddamn son of a bitch, you better think about it baby.
Boss Hoss – The Sonics. Cracks me up. “It’s painted a turn-on red, chicks see it and it knocks ‘em dead.”
Ask Me Why – The Beatles. In many ways their talents come though clearer on the more primitive recordings. Cool changes and John does some wonderful little vocalisms.
Bad Girl – New York Dolls. Lots of great lyrics tonight. “A new bad girl moved in on my block, I gave her my key I said ‘don’t bother to knock’.”
Degeneration – The Pillows. New to me, they have many albums and I’m still catching up. Not their best but they are always good.
Take 5 – Val Bennett. Reggae jazz, do yourself a favor and check it out.
Who Will Be Next – Howlin Wolf. I keep coming up with inadequate phrases to describe his music. This one is “intensely thrown away.”
Ghetto Skank – Joe Gibbs. A little summer dub. Nice trumpet.
Born on the Bayou – Creedence. Sounds good after dub. It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity…
Nightshift – The Commodores. The best song of the 80s. I don’t care what anyone thinks.
What did you think I’d post, The Commodores?
The bands in that commercial are an insult to the Misfits. Glenn Danzig and Jerry Only could whoop all those pussies with one hand tied behind their backs. (One guy in the commercial is playing a VOX amp. Really?!?!?!?)
EVERYTHING is an insult to The Misfits. Damn right too.
