Stiff Records/ Punk New Wave Compiler

MP3: You Can't Put Your Arms Around A Memory - Johnny Thunders (YSI)

That's right, another something that absolutely had to be done. HAD TO BE. The Specials, The Stranglers, The Replacements, The Lords of The New Church, The Flying Lizards, Bauhaus, The Vapors, X-Ray Spex, Bow Wow Wow, Nick Lowe, Lew Lewis, The Drones, Generation X?! Then of course, if you aren't familair with those, there are the more obvious contributors, The Clash, The Sex Pistols, The Buzzcocks, Siouxsie & The Banshees, Joe Jackson, Gang of Four. You've also got the Stiff Records artists, the almighty punk label, home to Elvis Costello, Richard Hell, Ian Dury, and (I'd go the whole wide world, I'd go the whole wide word, just to find her) Wreckless Eric. There's also Factory records (which I got to in December), and a whole bunch of others.

Thank god for punk, even though it's not the greatest genre (greatest? not sure) Or thank Stiff Records. Or.. all of the artists I just mentioned.

Alas, music is better than rambled sentances.

MP3: Veronica - Wreckless Eric (YSI)
MP3: Less Than Zero - Elvis Costello (YSI)
MP3: Kiss Off - Violent Femmes (YSI)

Quite a lengthy assortment. You have no idea how long the html tagging took.

As for recently released stuff- The Whigs' new album is decent. Especially if you're into Dinasour Jr. Also, The Whigs' website is rather impressive graphic-wise. Go check it out.

From Mission Control:
MP3: 1000 Wives - The Whigs (YSI)
MP3: Sleep Sunshine - The Whigs (YSI)

On a side note, I'm awesome at guitar hero.
On another side note, DJing with Kid Indie in the basement of Annex tonight.

Oh Bejesus, you're officially one of my new favorite bloggers after this post. Hooray for "Sverige," though my only complaint about the song is that you can't hear how absurd the lyrics are unless you get Swedish much.

Happy Tuesday!
