Needles in the Camel's Eye Brian Eno

I need this song. Come to think of it, I need the whole Here Come the Warm Jets album, as I only have it on cassette, and I no longer have a cassette player.

Friction Television

Was thinking of covering this, but decided there wasn't a point to doing so

I've had the "Duchess and the Duke" myspace page open and have been listening to their song on repeat over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over.

i will email you an mp3 of needle in the camel's eye this evening.
i had an extra copy of here come the warm jets but sent it to a deserving and appreciative music lover

i don't have a working cassette player either!

the church covered friction on their box of birds covers record. tom verlaine taught marty willson piper how to play that during an overnight drive on a tour bus from washington cd to nyc. i wish i had a tape of it. the conversation that is...it was hysterical. anyway... they covered it faithfully and there is no doubly no point in doing so.... because the church is television for girls anyway.

so.... how were you planning on spitting out that line "complain about my dick--shun" anyway???

(forgive us goners, for this conversation we should be having on the phone...)

"Westford Cemetary" by Cheater Slicks. That record has found it's way on the turntable & if not for a stack of 45s that I absolutely have to get through, it would not have left my turntable. As it is, that tune is seriously stuck in my head.
Posted: Jul 13, 2007 9:37 am
 
I've been listening to "Caguama Rama" by Slab City for weeks, Ernie sent me the mp3's of their upcoming singles. After that it was "Dead Beat" by Cheater Slicks. And the last few weeks I've been listening mostly to the new album of Miss Alex White on In The Red, Space & Time.

I listened to "Down in Flames" by Frankenstein like 100 times yesterday.

And I've been listening to this for about a half hour.

It isn't nearly as good but it is almost as infectious.
Does anyone know where they're sampling the 'hiphop' scratch from?
Posted: Jul 14, 2007 3:50 am
 
Ever have one of those weeks where you listen to the same songs over and over?

no

excellent!
Posted: Jul 14, 2007 4:01 am

I think it has to be the definitive version.

I was also listening to "Breakdown" by the Buzzcocks and "Video Prick" by Deep Wound, over and over this week.

Oh and as many versions as I could find of "Na na na Hey Hey Goodbye", Acid Mothers Temple does a great 10 minute cover.

TCB or TYA - Bobby Patterson

He played this tonight! Backing band (Scott Bomar with a bunch of amazing dudes) ROCKED!

I was going nuts when the song started. I LOVE that song.

I don't think Memphis Treet's been out of the CD player since the the day I got it.
Posted: Jul 21, 2007 5:38 pm
 
i can't stop listening to the jibbs "king kong in my trunk" song. it's so stupid that i have to love it. also, "jamskate" has been on heavy rotation. so has the didjits' "headless" and the stones "let's spend the night together" and the clean "tally ho!" as always. i have been listening to the new harlan cd a lil bit now too. :)
Posted: Jul 21, 2007 5:47 pm
 
I just got the Boredoms "Super Roots 3"..it is just one 30 minute "song" of this thrash riff and drum beat that changes ever so slighty every 5 minutes or so. I cant get enough of it, i think its brilliant. I have listened to it over and over and over and over this past week. I heart the Boredoms.
Posted: Jul 21, 2007 11:37 pm
 
Clarence Carter's version of Mother-in-Law!

"never wanna see you again" by the golden boys has been on repeat along with the rest of that record, for the last 3 weeks
Posted: Nov 2, 2007 7:50 pm
 
I've got a compilation cd I made of my favorite Wreckless Eric tracks that has been in my car's cd changer for about 8 months and because I hate all the other cd's that have also been in there about that long, I listen to this almost all the time when I drive. I never get sick of it.

This morning as I drove to work I was singing along with Birthday Blues, which is a fantastic song.

Although, it could just as easily have been this.

Yeah, it really pisses me off that you never let me listen to that Petra Haden cd that comes on after Wreckless Eric, you're a total fascist!
Posted: Nov 2, 2007 11:32 pm
 
just kidding. would it really be so hard to just take that heinous a cappella shit out of the cd changer? seriously.

UGH, just got it two nights ago in chicago at their show but am stuck in a fucking hotel room till the 16th. I'm seriously thinking about buying a cheap ass player just to have in my room.

I don't know what it is about cd changers that make them so hard to change. It seems even worse when you've got cd's in there that you didn't even choose in the first place, but the answer to your question is I'm either a) too lazy b) a sadist c) a masochist or d) actually really secretly love Petra Haden's a cappella bollox.

Has anyone bought the "God in the Garage" "comp"? I've played "Fugitive from God" over and over and and over and over. It's so retarded it's genius. Sinister in its infectious catchiness.

"You were never meant to walk the path that you trod/How long will you run away, a fugitive from God?"

Awesome liner notes, too.

The Nomads - Fire and Brimstone has 138 plays on my iPod.

No other song has yet broken 100.

The Friggs - Bad Word for a Good Thing is closing in at 97, and
The Detroit Cobras - Hey Sailor with 96.

Of course, those numbers are over the lifetime of my iPod.

the past few days i've spent in the goner store, john prevents me from working by always but always playing the oblivians soul food album. its downright cruel because that's the ONE album i don't have on my itunes or on my portable player; i just have No Reason to Live... so i listen to it over and over and over.

not that there's anything wrong with that
Posted: Nov 4, 2007 1:59 am
 
its one of my favorite lps. good all the way through, except maybe the DC5 cover.
Posted: Nov 4, 2007 2:14 am
 
I have "The Land of 1000 Bars" on replay in my head, and have for the last 4 weeks at least. It's gotten to the point where I am humming/singing along to it at inopportune moments where people have asked me "what was that?....what are you saying?". I usually just say "I can't go home anymore". My coworkers just look at me funny and walk away.
Posted: Nov 5, 2007 9:30 am
 
Out in the Streets - Shangri-Las
listened to this song 2x 2 weeks ago
Posted: Nov 5, 2007 6:11 pm
 
The Gun Club - She's Like Heroin to Me

Absolutely love that song, as well as Secret Fires- sometimes I go weeks on end with either of those songs on a permanent loop inside my head.
