Bad music for bad people

Bad_music_for_bad People


Happy Halloween from The Cramps!

I thought this would be a good album to pull from the bowels for my music collection and serve it up.

Here is the recipe for this brew called: GOO GOO Muck

Add 60’s Surf music combination in a large shaker.
I used 1 cup of The Ventures and a dash of Dick Dale
Sprinkle a tbl. of Karl Perkins, add a pinch of Elvis
40 ozs. of early punk rock music without without a bassist

Shake contents to the beat of the drums.

Pour over dry ice in a skull mug for that smoke filled club feeling,
Add a Screamin’ Jay Hawkins stir stick for show,
And jump on the Drug Train for the party!

Enjoy Your Trip,
David

hallowed ground

femmes-hallowedground

 

Today’s Runner maybe the creepiest album in Rock, it certainly is in my collection. The Femmes sophomore effort explores evil masked as good and good that is evil. Gorden Gano’s high-pitched voice cuts and slices, like Michael Myers, through the folksy, dark and alluring set of songs that make up Hollow Ground. BOO!

Mermaid Avenue

Today’s Runner is a trip down Mermaid Avenue. Billy Bragg and Wilco pay tribute to Woody Guthrie. I swear I use to past those houses on Irving Park when I wore an younger man’s running shoes.

Liz Phair

Guyville

 

Exile in Guyville

Here is another of the best albums to come out in 1993, 20 years later it still has legs, and Liz Phair is still hot in my book. What I love about this mega track album (18 songs long) is how often Liz is off key, it makes you listen to her lyrics. This excrept that Bill Wyman, Rock Critic for The New Yorker wrote explains it all.

““Exile” is part coming-of-age story and part systematic inquiry into the fractured psyche of American nineties womanhood. At the time, it was a landmark of foul-mouthed, compromised intimacy, a tortured confessional, a workout in female braggadocio, and a wellspring of penetrating self-analysis and audacity. Phair was as lyrical as Joni Mitchell but played as tough as Chrissie Hynde; she was as smart as Courtney Love and as comfortable toying with sexual imagery as Madonna.”

Nuf said. Enjoy the Music.

Today’s Runner is high powered blues from “Super Group” the Hindu Love Gods, made up of REM’s Berry, Buck and Mills and Warren Zevon. This one is a Raspberry Beret, the kind you find in a second hand store.

Enjoy!
