Sonic Youth – Sugar Kane

ep81 Sonic Youth – Sugar Kane

Sonic Youth

So I’m once again riding the Sonic Train. I usually go about 6 to 8 months; I’ll hear a Sonic Youth song here or there and think “mmmm, so good.” But that’s it. Then out of nowhere, the urge overtakes me and it’s all I’ll listen to for a week or two straight. I’m in it. Just picked up some vinyl this week- I’ll post photos as they arrive. A nice Sonic Youth/Jay Reatard split 7″; Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star; Sister; Evol; and Dirty (which contains the song of the show).

 

Bad Sports – Washed Up

ep80 Bad Sports – Washed Up

Bad SportsBad Sports new album Bras perpetuates their persistent pursuit for punk perfection. The songs are tight. The songs are loud. The songs are fast. Kickin ass in your earhole.

ep60 Pangea – River

Killer Dreams EP was released early 2012 and is about as solid an EP as they come, all 4 songs are worth listening to repeatedly, each song has its own flavor of Pangea, and the album cover is one of my favorites in recent history.

Tyvek – Scaling

Detroit punks Tyvek released a new album early in November and it’s moving up my list of best of 2012. The straight up lo-fi fuzzy punk of On Triple Beams is only slightly more refined and evolved than their previous album Nothing Fits. Their label In The Red Records is a good place to start a record collection.

Titus Andronicus – Ecce Homo


local business
Titus Andronicus – Ecce Homo

New Jersey punks Titus Andronicus released their third album Local Business in October of this year. The music is good, the kids are punks, the first track “Ecce Homo” is the way an album ought to begin. Have a listen, won’t you?

Naomi Punk – Burned Body
Naomi Punk’s album “The Feeling” is being re-released this November on their new label, after a limited press of 300 or so albums back in April of this year, it is a standout punk album and not much of a surprise that the band hails from Olympia, WA- must be something in the trees up there. . .

Iggy & the Stooges – Search & Destroy

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I dug all the way down into wikipedia to get this little tidbit o’ knowledge:

Bowie later recalled:

…the most absurd situation I encountered when I was recording was the first time I worked with Iggy Pop. He wanted me to mix Raw Power, so he brought the 24-track tape in, and he put it up. He had the band on one track, lead guitar on another and him on a third. Out of 24 tracks there were just three tracks that were used. He said ‘see what you can do with this’. I said, ‘Jim, there’s nothing to mix’. So we just pushed the vocal up and down a lot. On at least four or five songs that was the situation, including “Search and Destroy.” That’s got such a peculiar sound because all we did was occasionally bring the lead guitar up and take it out.”
the list:
Iggy & the Stooges – Search & Destroy
Sonic Youth – Androgynous Mind
Dead Kennedy’s – Drug Me
Black Flag – Six Pack
Nice Face – Blood In The Well; Nobody’s Dead Here
Museum Mouth – Sexy But Not Happy; Blood Mountain; Kitchen Floor
Blasted Canyons – Blood on the Wall; Death and a Half; Ice Cream Man
The Spits – My Mess; Electric Brain; All I Want
The Marked Men – Fix My Brain; Not That Kid; On the Outside
Random Song o’ the show:
N.W.A. – Straight outta Compton

The Clash – Rudie Can’t Fail

 This week is a tribute to 924 Gilman St, although I don’t think The Clash ever played there.  Many bands throughout the late 80’s and early 90’s cut their teeth and split their lips jumping around the all ages club, 924 Gilman St.  Operation Ivy the short lived, much loved punk-ska Berkeley band was the reincarnation of The Clash.  The other bands included in this episode reflect all that was good about The Clash and Operation Ivy. The Clash – Rudie Can’t Fail ~63 minutes 

The List:

The Clash – Rudie Can’t Fail

Operation Ivy – Here We Go Again; Sound System; The Crowd; Caution; Vulnerability

Green Day – Only of You

Pennywise – Wouldn’t It Be Nice; Bro Hymn

The Mr T Experience – Now We Are Twenty-One; The History of the Concept of the Soul, Gilman Street

Rancid/NOFX – I’m the One; Brews; Tenderloin; Bob; Antennas

Random Song of the Show

Screaming Females – Foul Mouth

the NPR Tiny Desk Session

Sonic Youth – Mary-Christ

Sonic Youth may be done, who knows, but at one point someone asked me if I were stranded on a desert island and could have only one artist/bands complete works to listen to who would it be. . . I guess I wouldn’t be relating that little slice of life if the band weren’t Sonic Youth so, cat’s outta the bag, my answer then was Sonic Youth and it would still be Sonic Youth today. I had a little bit of anxiety trying to pick a song, but resigned myself to the fact that if I continue doing this show I will have plenty of opportunity to do another Sonic Youth song, and another, and another.  Anyway, I picked a good number of songs that were released relatively close to when Goo was released and then a few songs that are more recent.  I rolled out the first of a 2012 release and added some songs to the best of 2011 list that will never die.  Hope you enjoy. Sonic Youth – Mary-Christ ~63 minutes

the list:

Sonic Youth – Mary-Christ

PJ Harvey – Me-Jane; Yuri-G; 50 Ft. Queenie

Yo La Tengo – From a Motel 6

My Bloody Valentine – Soft As Snow (But Warm Inside)

Love and Rockets – Kundalini Express

Concrete Blonde – God is A Bullet

Cloud Nothings – No Future/No Past; Stay Useless; No Sentiment

Ty Segall – You Make the Sun Fry; The Slider; Fist Heart Mighty Dawn Dart

Random Song of the Show

Alice Donut – Mother Of Christ

Ramones – Sheena Is A Punk Rocker

Punk has been around forever. When it shows up, you think “oh yeah, there it is- punk rock man.” Most of the time it’s lurking just out of sight in all the usual places, but occasionally someone shines  a light on it and we all get a good dose of punk.  Punk is always where it  needs to be, for those of us who really need it, when we need it.  This show highlights a miniscule amount of punk, some of it hailing from Texas (a place that could use a whopping good dose of punk) and a little from Portland and a some from San Francisco, and other places as well – punk is everywhere.  All of it really good stuff. Ramones – Sheena Is A Punk Rocker (click to listen or download)~56 minutes

Fucked Up – No Epiphany


In the second installment of the best of 2011, I picked a song that wasn’t even released in 2011 but came out 3 years earlier on the album The Chemistry of Common Life. The song, “No Epiphany,” is not new but it is the first song I heard by Fucked Up years ago, and immediately liked. Fucked Up has a fucked up name but whatever, they put out a really good album, an excellent album this year, with 18 fucking tracks on it, so don’t just pick and choose, drop the 9.99 and get the whole god damned thing. For some reason I never bought any of their albums up until now, and David Comes To Life is good straight up, no frills punk rock. No gimmicks, other than their fucking name. Whatever. . . they’re basically just Coldplay with a scrowling singer. . .~58 minutes

Minor Threat – I Don’t Wanna Hear It

~51 minutes


The debut episode of 1 Song 1 Show focuses on Minor Threat’s “I Don’t Wanna Hear It.” Chosen at random, the song immediately brought up comparisons of the DIY early 80’s indie music young industrialists to the everyone with a keyboard and an opinion podcasters of the current day. Minor Threat’s sound and walk the talk attitude left very little room for harsh criticism musically speaking. They were really fucking good, and you either liked the type of music they played or you weren’t into it. Their social/cultural observations were controversial and will continue to energize fresh listeners for years to follow.

Playlist for Minor Threat – I Don’t Wanna Hear It

Rich recommmends:

  • Fugazi – Waiting Room
  • Bad Brains – Sailin’ On
  • something by Circle Jerks (I would suggest “Wild in the Streets”)
  • a song from The Dead Milkmen’s “Big Lizard in my Backyard” he mentioned “Bitchin Camaro”

I would add to that:

  • Fugazi- Margin Walker
  • Bad Brains- Don’t Bother Me
  • The Dead Milkmen- Rastabilly
  • The Misfits- London Dungeon and Where Eagles Dare
  • Mudhoney- Flat out Fucked and Hate the Police
  • Helmet- Unsung
  • Minor Threat- Screamin at a Wall

Other stuff to look up:

Rich mentioned “Art to Choke Hearts” by Henry Rollins, and the website Pancake Mountain

Scott says it may be worth checking out Jonesy’s Jukebox on KROQ
