Playing: tunes

Here are the tracks for the show tomorrow (such organisation)

Jolene Dolly Parton The Very Best Of 2:41

A classic Dolly track

Runnin' Wild Airbourne Runnin' Wild 3:38

More OZ rock from Airbourne - nothing sophisticated, just balls out rawwwk in an AC/DC style.

Too Much, Too Young, Too Fast Airbourne Runnin' Wild 3:42

Rose Tattoo can take some credit for this one, turn it up.

Ace Of Spades Motorhead The Best Of Motorhead D1 2:51

While we're rockin', can't forget Lemmy

Idea of Fun The Stooges The Weirdness 3:17

I really want to use this song as the soundtrack to a First Person shooter video game

Velvety Frank Black 93-03 2:29

Changing the pace a little (but maintaining the rock)

Last nite (The Strokes) The Detroit Cobras Stop me if you think you've heard this one before 2:35

Great cover in a classic girl rock band style

Spring Rain David McCormack Write Your Adventures Down: A Tribute To The Go-Betweens 4:02

Former Custard/Titanics frontman brings his unique voice to an otherwise faithful Gobee's tribute.

Off The Grid The Beastie Boys The Mix-Up 4:36

Like the soundtrack to a great blaxploitation flick, I'll be coming back to this album regularly in coming weeks (and perhaps months)

Evidence Single Gun Theory The Monkey's Mask O.S.T 3:02

Beautiful acoustica from an underrated soundtrack.

The Underpants Song Los Capitanes No Butts! 3:41

Quirky track from one time local outfit

Nature Springs The Good, The Bad And The Queen The Good, The Bad And The Queen 3:10

Gentler and more hopeful in sound but still low-key - nice acoustic guitar work (including the squeaks and squeals from changing chords), some blips and bleeps, again with the fragmentary echoes of OK Computer (a compliment, don't get me wrong). Oh and whistling - who doesn't love a bit of whistling in a tune.

Brain Damage Dr. Israel Dub Side Of The Moon 4:06

Modern reggae take on a classic tune from Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon

Big Decision Elliott Smith New Moon 2:00

Zippy track for Elliot and another golden one.

300 M.P.H. Torrential Outpour Blues The White Stripes Icky Thump 5:28

Cruel Sea vibe/riffs - very nice.

Pick Me Up Dinosaur Jr Beyond 6:32

Returns to more conventional DJr ground but brings in some outthere whistly synth at points (I think) to keep the freshness up. Loving the guitar in this one, it's gold and has put the song up into my top 2 for this album.

Weeds The Negotiators Apples and Oranges 3:59

Great raspy rock track from occasional commenter Shane

If Jesus Drove A Motor Home Jim White Drill A Hole In That Substrate And Tell Me What You See 4:36

Courtesy of Jerry "Lost Highway" Schwab, this is a very cool alt.country/lounge track.

Love Is A Sweet Thing Randall Blair And The Wedded Bliss Tattoos And Taillights 4:14

More local treasure - nice melodic country pop complete with near oompah brass.

Human Fly Nouvelle Vague Bande À Part 2:49

Eminently listenable 80s alternapop hits jazzed up and given the French bossa nova/lounge treatment

Come Back Margaret Camera Obscura Let's Get Out Of This Country 3:47

Beautiful girl driven pop from Scotland.
