Berit's teaching me to run Lord Oxford for a couple shows next week while she has to go away on family stuff - which means I also have to do Penny Dreadful on my own. Busy next week. Currently ambling - cleaning the apartment, thinking about next year's shows, catching up on paperwork to deal with for the company, now that it's a real company.
Still trying to cut things from the iPod today, while adding more at the same time. Now there are 26,020 tracks on there. Here's today's Random Ten:
1. "Lifetime" - The Bliss - Fading Yellow volume 1
Oh, man is this a piece of nauseating wimpy hippie trash. Ick. I told Berit this was an immediate DROP and she said I might want to keep it to use if I needed to build up the will to slap someone sometime. Okay.
2. "Brief Candles" - The Zombies - Odessey & Oracle
Okay, here's how you do wimpy hippie trash properly. This STAYS
3. "Mica" - Mission Of Burma - Vs.
I came to MOB late and want to spend more time with all of their sides before culling the lesser ones (which I have a feeling this one is . . . maybe not). STAYS.
4. "It's a Good Thing" - That Petrol Emotion - Children of Nuggets: Original ARTyfacts from the Second Psychedelic Era - 1976-1996
Hmmn. Kinda the same thing as the MOB - I want to know this better before dumping. What the hell AM I gonna dump at this rate?
5. "Nervous" - Victims - S/T 7" EP
Nope, not this. Great cheap punk single.
6. "See My Friends" - The Reegs - Shangri-La: A Tribute To The Kinks
Nice, but unnecessary, especially if I have the Kinks' original. If I do, it's a DROP.
7. "The Little March (live)" - Frank Zappa - You Can't Do That On Stage Anymore, Volume 5
Late-60s Mothers of Invention live? STAYS.
8. "Indian Feeling" - CAM Library - Feeling
Very short charming cheesy library track. STAYS.
9. "Voodoo Plan" - The Headliners - Wavy Gravy - Four Hairy Policemen…
Preceded by a radio spot for The Astro-Zombies, which is enough to keep this.
10. "I Know" - The Illusions - Pebbles Volume 11
Pretty good garage rock, but not a sure thing. DROP.
Hey, cat photos again!
Out to run some household errands now. Maybe something else new soon . . .
