one of the many shames of radio is that they ignore so many great kinks songs.

you know, i realize i haven't posted any capt. beefheart stuff. for shame!
he's in full on preacher mode in this clip from snl. i can see why the punks loved him. sax solo at the end is fucking incredible. the audience seems stunned. does someone shout 'shit'?

saw 'control' today. i don't do movie reviews, but it's good and you should see it.
this is the real joy division performing 'transmission'. one of the great songs of all time.
and, yes, that IS the magnificent john cooper clarke at intro and outro. so really, this is a 2 for 1 blog!

such a great song. in a perfect world all the james taylor songs you hear on the radio would be replaced by daniel's songs. it's not a perfect world.

i remember i was huge into the ramones when this came out. i think this is the first song where i could pick out an influence. great, great song, and if i'm not mistaken 'lovely' was a pretty solid album.
oh, and i want to start a band with tracy louise cattell.
shit, i think i want to start a family with her.

great twofer from the mighty wire. i fucking loved wire the first time i heard them, which was when i borrowed mike's 'pink flag'. i loved them more when i heard 'chairs missing' an album so absolutely perfect that guitar bands should've stopped putting out albums after it. everything since has been an echo.

i remember crying like a baby when i saw this. it still gets me. it's like a hymn. and when the chorus stops and bruce is left singing alone, he seems like the last man alive.
