Friday Random Ten

Lene Lovich "Lucky Number" The Big Stiff Box Set
Calexico "Sarabande in Pencil Form" Carried to Dust
Billy & the King Bees "Bango" The Complete Stax-Volt Singles 1959-1968
Marshall Crenshaw "Somebody Crying" This Is Easy: The Best of Marshall Crenshaw
The Mekons "Makes No Difference" F.U.N. '90
King Kong "King Kong" Funny Farm
Graham Parker "Durbin Poison" 1989 Live! Alone in America
John Greaves "Le Gargon Vert" Little Bottle of Laundry
Outkast "Behold a Lady" Speakerboxxx/The Love Below
Kronos Quartet "Lara: Se me hizo facil" Nuevo

bonus
Trevor Pinnock "BWV 988 Variato 12 Canone alla Quarta" Bach: Goldberg Variations

Well, the last three in regulation have to set a weirdness-up-against each other record, no? Figures harpsichord would take us out. Crenshaw gets pick of the litter, with a strong second from one of my favorite songs by one group covered by one of my favorite bands.

You've been hitting the Graham Parker pretty hard lately...

1. Desire -- Hank and Ruth
2. Blowin' Down the Road -- Woody Guthrie
3. Wordless Chorus -- My Morning Jacket
4. Newest Industry -- Husker Du
5. Star Spangled Banner -- Jimi Hendrix
6. Nothing But Blood -- Rev. F.D. Kirkpatrick
7. I Zimbra (live) -- Talking Heads
8. Berkeley Mews -- The Kinks
9. Pressure Drop -- Clash
10. Beautiful World -- Devo

Bonus: Shutup -- The Replacements.

I challenge you to find a list that has Hendrix followed by Reverend Kirkpatrick followed by the Talking Heads in full African beat.

2. Blackened -- Metallica (wow...metalfest so early in the morning)

4. Cross Town Traffic -- Jimi Hendrix (FINALLY!!)
5. 94 Hours -- As I Lay Dying
6. Words (Unspoken) -- Boney James (Geez...from searing metal of AILD to Boney James, a cheap Kenny G knockoff??)

8. Security -- Susan Tedeschi (cover song of the Otis redding hit, she does well with this one)

I'm always glad to see Lene Lovich on someone's list...

Pan and Regaliz - Waiting in the Monsters' Garden
Au Pairs - It's Obvious
Rufus Thomas - Walking the Dog
Dengue Fever - March of the Balloon Animals
Big Youth - Hit the Road, Jack
Shonen Knife - Ah, Singapore
Scientist - Plague of the Zombies
Shriekback - Devil's Onions
Karl Hector & the Malcouns - Mystical Brotherhood
Los 5-U-4 - Baila, Ven y Baila

Kind of an odd list for me...

Welcome to the Friday party, Smitty, just don't scrape your big hair on the door....(OK, that doesn't really make sense).

You can't hit the Graham Parker too strong, Free. And that's not just T-Heads in full African Beat, it's full Hugo Ball beat, too.

I've got 3 Lene Lovich, so having one pop up shows good taste on the random's part.
