Friday 10

1) Dropkick Murphy's - Fields of Athenry
Pronounced athenrhie, rhymes with cry, repeatedly.
Great if you like bagpipe in rock, Includes a prison ship. 5/10

2) They Might Be Giants - Don't Lets's Start
Rent the documentary somebody made about these two. "No one in the world ever gets what they want, and that is beautiful" Makes moody-bastardness catchy. Includes Deputy Dawg. 7.6/10

3) Frank Black - Old Black Dawning
I had a job in college. I mopped the Dining Commons. I listened to this album A LOT, Sony Casette Walkman (that's "90's" for iPod crapo). Includes Frank Black. 7/10

4) Aquateeen - Mooninites and Meatwad
"Somebody hook me up with a flame, i'm having a nic fit". Includes 30 seconds of the Mooninites berating Frylock. 9/10

5) Dreseden Dolls - Good Day
This song is even better live. The premise is your psychio ex -girlfriend, written and performed by your psycho ex-girlfriend, with your psycho ex-boyfriend on drums. I will be at their Haloween show. Includes accurately descriptive chorus "I'm on fire".9.5/10

6) Coldplay - Clocks
A wall of above average sound. Very good for a rainy day drive, which I am not on. Includes a rhythym that attempts to reset your heartbeat.6.5/10

7) A lack of colour - Death Cab for Cutie
Awesomely clever lyrics, simple enough music, great atmosphere. She must have been one hell of a woman. Includes psycho ex-boyfriend leaving an embarrasing answering machine message. 7.5/10

8) I'm Amazed - Pixies (purple tape ver.)
1986 - believe it. no one has yet set the mark for how far ahead of their time the pixies were. Includes my amazement 9.5/10

9) Any colour you like - Pink Floyd
As i recall, this ws when the planetarium laser show got really good. Includes a few reminders that it took radiohead 25 years to set pink floyds time-aheadedness mark. 6.5/10

10) Busted bicycle - Leo Kottke (6&12 ver.)
I saw this guy play live once. It is just one guy with one guitar, and fingers like calloused hummingbirds. Includes a race to the end of the song. 8/10

11) Golden Brown - The Stranglers
A song about the best sex you've ever had. Power pop at it's birth. Includes vague masturbation references. 8/10




No summary math here, but I do have happy ears.

I love that song and I went to the shittiest Pink Floyd laser show ever n Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. They didn't even syncronise it with the music. Salt Lake Effing City at elast blew your doors off with the laser show. Laser Dark Side, Laser Floyd (a mix) and Laser Wall (selections- awesome). Also, Laser U2, Laser Grunge, Laser Metallica. Most of those sucked. But Laser ZEP was AWESOME.

Yeah, the Planetarium in Cambridge (boston) really did it up right. That memory is from high school. First time I ever heard the album from start to finish.

w00t @ The Stranglers. But lately, my go-to band for funky, sloppy, grinding coital fun has been My Morning Jacket...

Summary math would be 66, right? You can get your kicks by not knowing how to count to ten ... yeah!
