I am looking at songs that maybe never were played on the radio or songs that were and then stopped. If I don’t add new life to these songs they may become extinct. We may never hear of them again. I must use my (limited) power to save these songs. I look forward to your help in this very important crusade.
- LifeBlood by That Petrol Emotion
My 2nd import record. I will always remember it. (1st was The Smiths- Hatful of Hollow) this is really a super group. Look at the line up find the album. Research/internet-search it.
- Sister Isabel by Frank Black and Teenage Fanclub
From a John Peel Session (huge influence on this DJ) “she’s changing her name from Lola to Sister Isabel.”
3. I Found That Essence Rare by Gang of Four
It is rare when you can find it, if you can hold on to it.
4. Pale Blue Eyes by Paul Quinn & Edwyn Collins
I love Lou Reed. He was an incredible writer. He wasn’t the greatest vocalist but he had his style. Always interesting to hear other singers interpret or copy.
5. The Hardest Walk by The Jesus and Mary Chain
Great track from that 1st album. Dream come true seeing them at Riot Fest a couple years back.
6. Blank Generation by Richard Hell & the Voidoids
Punk anthem that is so punk it doesn’t get played
7. Weirdo by The Charlatans UK
Greatest opening line ever in a song “Most of the time you are happy…you’re a Weirdo”
8. Helpline Operator by The The
Matt Johnson creativity mixed creatively by Sick Boy
9. Faded Flowers by Shriekback
Another supergroup with what should have been a superhit.
10. ….what would you play next?
