j's indie/rock mayhem - 10th december 2003

[so in the grand tradition of things, i slept until six p.m. and was slightly late for my show. so i made up for it by playing nothing but the best music. but then again. i do that every week. i had a lot of fun on the show and i hope you had fun listening. i'll be back friday night from 10pm - 12am so tune in. i'll be doing some of my favorite christmas/holiday themed music this friday. next wednesday from 6pm - 8pm is the Top 25 of 2003 show. i'll probably re-play the list again next friday. just to make my week easier. see you then.]

the Stone Roses - "(Song for my) Sugar-spun Sister"
Sleater-Kinney - "You're No Rock 'n' Roll Fun"
New York Dolls - "Chatterbox"
Willie Nelson - "Columbus Stockade Blues" [from his country willie album that i picked up this morning. great, early willie.]
the Handsome Family - "The Song of a Hundred Toads" [definitely on the Top 25 of 2003 list. email me with your nominations or leave a comment in the comment box.]
the Buzzcocks - "Ever Fallen in Love?"
Tom Waits - "You Can't Unring a Bell" [from his wonderful soundtrack to one from the heart that he did with crystal gayle. a seemingly odd match that ended up being absolutely lovely.]
Josh Rouse - "Slaveship" [1972 is another Top 25 list member.]
Tiger Bear Wolf - "An Entire City Full of Mesh-Back Hats" [played at the Gate City Noise 24-hour sale at six a.m. this morning. now that's dedication to the rock.]
Depeche Mode - "I Feel You"
the Ramones - "Howling at the Moon (Sha-la-la)" [by request. the guy wanted their version of "needles and pins" but since i was without both my copy of mania and road to ruin and any copies the station would have had have been long ago lifted, i went with the next poppiest piece i could lay hands on.]
the Pogues - "If I Should Fall From Grace With God" [yes. this is my favorite pogues record. yes, i like it more than rum, sodomy and the lash can i quit apologizing now?]
Josh Ritter - "The Golden Age of Radio" [his newest, hello, starling, is definitely on the Top 25 list.]
Big Star - "Thank You Friends" [from big star third/sister lovers.]
the Clash - "Spanish Bombs" [o, mi corazon.]
Rangeboy - "Sounds like Summer" [a great, unsigned band from virginia. the full length album is on its way to the station. reminds me of all that is good about minimalist, jangly guitar pop like early r.e.m., the la's, polaris, etc.]
Teenage Fanclub - "Ain't That Enough" [speaking of great, jangly guitar pop..]
Crooked Fingers - "Mansion on the Hill" [from the badlands: a tribute to bruce springsteen's nebraska compilation that sub pop records put out back in 2000. a record very much worth hearing if you're a fan of the boss.]
the Cure - "In Between Days" [by request. from the head on the door and this song was very good. but i'm biased.]
the Scaries - "Pictures of You" [NC's own with a version of this cure classic. the scaries are playing their final show ever this saturday at go studios in carborro. i'll be there.]
Pulp - "The Trees"
the Pixies - "Where is My Mind?"
the Shins - "Mine's Not a High Horse" [by request.]
Social Distortion - "Story of My Life" [by request. thanks, katie.]
Hayden - "Bass Song" [from his 2002 album, skyscraper national park]

Thanks for listening. Don't forget to check out how you can help the Triad Health Project this holiday season. See you Friday.
