Friday Random Ten

Alison Krauss & Union Station "Choctaw Hayride" New Favorite
The Fairfield Four "Lonesome Valley" O Brother, Where Art Thou?
Lloyd Cole & The Commotions "Glory" [live] Rattlesnakes (deluxe edition)
Mitsuko Uchida "II Pour les Tierces" Debussy: 12 Etudes
Rodney Crowell "Banks of the Old Bandera" The Houston Kid
Joy Division "She's Lost Control" Substance 1977-1980
The Januaries "John Sings" The Januaries
Old 97's "Smokers" Drag It Up
Stephen Malkmus "Mama" Face the Truth
Mingus Big Band "Nostalgia in Times Square" Nostalgia in Times Square

Mirah "Archipelago" You Think It's Like This But Really It's Like This

We pick up with last week's [correction: two week's ago--I have no sense of time anymore] favorite artist (if really a Jerry Douglas workout), stay in O Brother-ish land, get an ok Television cover, some Debussy, some more new country, a post-punk classic, a song that's at least fitting for the calendar, a weaker Old 97's, a catchy Malkmus, some big band fun that sort of could be about NYE (but isn't), and an artist I haven't listened to in awhile but she's still pretty fetching. All over, and out.

Apparently itunes can take suggestions from album titles. Lots of punk, lots of lowdown. Glad to see some Stooges represented, E-6. RIP, Ron Asheton.

You beat me to the Ron Asheton RIP, Marty. Plus you have to love that run of guitar--Stooges, AC/DC, Robert Fripp.

And I have to admit I'm an atheist as far as Clapton is concerned. Sorry, Generik.

I'll sheepishly admit I hadn't heard about Asheton's passing. Bummer. That song (and most of The Stooges' catalog) makes me feel a lot closer to twenty than 47. RIP.

I'm also not one to worship at the alter of EC, though I do really dig some of his work with Derek and the Dominoes. And some Cream. And a little Blind Faith. And a couple of Delaney and Bonnie tracks. Beyond that...

If Clapton is God Neitzche was right.
