j's indie/rock mayhem - 16th january 2004

[i was nearly not coming in tonight because of being ridiculously tired. but i rallied the troops and put on a really fun show. got some nice requests and debuted a new (quasi) permanent fixture to the show; the Friday Night Jones. i'll talk about it in a minute. onward.]

Theme Song - Peaches - "Rock Show"
Twilight Singers - "Teenage Wristband" [the new project of ex-afghan whigs frontman greg dulli. this is the 2nd cd under this band and this album is remarkably good. it's not quite the whigs, but it's different enough while maintaining the cool swagger dulli is so good at.]
Blur - "Charmless Man" [from the great escape.]
Stellastar - "In the Walls"
Radiohead - "Electioneering" [the iowa caucus is upon us and it seemed a fitting song.]
the Bens - "Just Pretend" [the supergroup of bens folds, kweller and lee. not a bad ep at all.]
the Cure - "In Between Days" [by request. a great song from head on the door.]
the Cash Brothers - "Nebraska"
Sleater-Kinney - "Not What You Want" [they opened with this the first time i saw them. it still gives me shivers. a great, great song.]
Placebo - "Every Me, Every You" [from without you i'm nothing.]
the Geraldine Fibbers - "I Killed the Cuckoo" [a raucous and ultimately joyful, if not alarming, album.]
Fugazi - "Five Corporations"
Sonic Youth - "Drunken Butterfly" [this was the noise set as every song contained a good bit of squealing feedback and random noise.]
the Pixies - "Letter to Memphis"
Teenage Fanclub - "Sparky's Dream"
Kudzu Wish - "Do You Need an Anthem?" [by request. a van full of thirteen guilford college students called me to request this. they seemed to be enjoying themselves. rock on.]
[the Friday Night Jones is a new segment i'd like to do semi-regularly which involves playing a classic album in its entirety and then, if there is time remaining, examining some other tracks from the same era by the band. i promise this is not out of laziness on my part, wanting to just sit there while half a record plays, read the PSAs and then pay the other half. i'm genuinely interested in the beauty that the album format contains, so why not play the whole thing?]
Friday Night Jones Album : The Replacements - Tim
"Hold My Life"
"I'll Buy"
"Kiss Me on the Bus"
"Dose of Thunder"
"Waitress in the Sky"
"Swingin Party"
"Bastards of Young"
"Lay it Down Clown"
"Left of the Dial"
"Little Mascara"
"Here Comes a Regular"
[end of Friday Night Jones Album]
the Replacements - "Can't Hardly Wait (Tim Version)" [this song, of course, eventually ended up on the 'mats' '87 album, pleased to meet me. but there is this version that was originally recorded for tim. it is the only one that has bob stinson playing on it. so it's well worth hearing.]
the Replacements - "Another Girl, Another Planet (live)" [a cover of the only ones' classic.]
the Replacements - "Who Knows"
the Replacements - "Hey Good Lookin' (live)" [one of the b-sides to the "i will dare" 12" single. bob has a gloriously tone deaf solo in the middle. it's fantastic.]
the Replacements - "The Last" [the last song from their last album. fitting.]

Thanks for listening. Requests for future Friday Night Jones Albums? You know what to do. Email me!

I'm not sure when I'll be on next week. Check back after Sunday evening for times.
