Not Just to Be Consumed by Rock n' Roll

This week's Random ten wasn't so great. As a way to fix that, and since it's my new weekly thing to steal something from Heather, it seems, here's what happens if you ask Pandora to create "Mekons Radio":

The Mekons "Hello Cruel World" On the Edge of the World
Minus Story "Gravity Pulls" The Captain is Dead, Let the Drum Corpse Dance
BIS "Sweet Shop Adventures" The New Transistor Heroes
Helen Love "MC5" Love and Glitter, Hot Days and Muzik
The Mekons "Amnesia" The Mekons Rock N' Roll
The Fall "Edinburgh Man" Shift-Work
Tralala "Yellow Taxi" Is That the Tralala
The Fleshtones "I Am What I Am" Beachhead
The Undertones "True Confessions" The Best of the Undertones: Teenage Kicks
The Mekons "East Is Red" Where Were You?: Hen's Teeth And Other Lost Fragments Of Unpopular Culture Vol.2

Dan Baird "I Want You Bad" Buffalo Nickel

Not bad--certainly more things of interest than my random list. Plus I didn't know Helen Love and Tralala and now hope to know more of both. Female-led power-punk-pop! How can you not love a band whose influences are "misunderstandings, love, debauchery, whiskey and pop music"?

Glad to help with the random ways to kill more of your Friday.
