Friday Random Ten

Neko Case "Stinging Velvet" Blacklisted
The Damned "New Rose" D.I.Y.: Anarchy in the UK - UK Punk I (1976-77)
Kevin Salem "Lighthouse Keeper" Soma City
Pavement "Soiled Little Filly" Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain: L.A.'s Desert Origins
Alex Chilton "The Happy Song" 1970
Peter Gabriel "San Jacinto" Security
The New Pornographers "Jackie" Mass Romantic
Battlefield Band "The Dear Green Place" On the Rise
The Mekons "Prince of Darkness" New York
Waco Brothers "The Lie" New Deal


Fountains of Wayne "I Know You Well" Out-of-State Plates

Nothing to be too embarrassed about this week, although surprisingly probably my favorite cut of the lot is the Kevin Salem (there's some great guitar-pop on that disc). An I never thought of it, but that Gabriel cut and The Mekons cut are more alike than you'd think. And I know that FOW cut is mushy, but it's so damn catchy, those follow the leader chorus harmonies.

Back to the usual -- I know zero songs from that list.

Which is ridiculous since I actually own, and have listened to, Crooked Rain.

Wait, or is it Slanted and Enchanted I have? Hmmm.

The Crooked Rain cut is from the re-issue with an extra bonus disc, so you might not have it.

But you should know that Damned cut--it was the first UK 45 punk song--beat the Pistols to release and everything.
