Kid Creole & The Coconuts - No Fish Today (slow edit) (1982)
Though this was arguably the most mellowed-out number in the Creole catalog already, I wanted to hear it dialed back a bit more. I think it sounds just peachy this way.
White Russia - Emotions Had Slipped
Sentimental German thing, compliments of DJ Terre T, by way of that German Punk and Wave comp.
The Cononuts - If I Only Had A Brain (1983)
It defies any reason or logic, as to why I’d still be listening to this record after 3 or 4 months. Just keeps me coming back.
REQUIRED LISTENING: Billy Hamon - Butch Things (1978)
Someone described this as The Cramps meets Roxy Music… About as good a description as any. Feat. some VU-style backing vox as well.
Bobby Caldwell - Open Your Eyes (1980)
FURTHER LISTENING: The Sky’s the Limit Y’allz!
Also, The Breakbot vers.
Rod Stewart - Foolish Behaviour (1980)
Happy Valentine’s Day motherfuckers.
Psychic TV - Interzone (1986)
Satisfaction - Just Like Friends (1971)
The latest toss-away rescued from the ITunes crap-heap by virtue of its shuffle feature. Prog song structure, w/ Chicago horns… what more do ya want?
Thelonious Monk w/ John Coltrane - Ruby, My Dear
"Coltrane was only part of Monk’s quartet for about 5 months in 1957. Thankfully we have a few of those sessions on record."
Thelonious Monk - piano
John Coltrane - tenor saxophone
Wilbur Ware - bass
Shadow Wilson - drums
