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

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.
