[i had a blast with the show tonight. i was in a great mood and had plenty of new music obtained to share with you guys. so i hope you enjoyed it as much as i enjoy playing it. if you wish you can read my short essay on modern country music and hank williams III over at my personal blog, notes from underground. let's get to the run-down.]

Theme Song - Peaches - "Rock Show"
Tiger Bear Wolf - "Pens Tied Down" [greensboro's own. rocking college hill tomorrow night (26th february 2004) at disband's last show as greensboro residents.]
Blondie - "Hanging on the Telephone" [this is one great, great rock song.]
the Emergency - "Breakdown a Go-Go" [this album is superb.]
Hank Williams III - "I'm a Long Gone Daddy" [from the timeless hank williams sr. tribute album.]
Liars - "They Don't Want Your Corn - They Want Your Kids" [from their new album, they were wrong so we drowned. great post-rock noise.]
All Astronauts - "Glassening" [more great NC rock. these guys are quite tasty.]
Aztec Camera - "The Crying Scene" [this didn't gel as well with the prior track as i would've liked, but i simply adore this song as well as the entire stray album.]
Olivia Tremor Control - "Courtyard" [more elephant 6 genius goodness.]
Dizzee Rascal - "Jezebel" [the 2003 mercury prize winner in all his glory.]
Catherine Wheel - "Black Metallic" [for paul who i know often listens during the first hour. this was a request from some time ago. this was the full, seven minute album version.]
Cake - "Ruby Sees All" [by request. by special k, who always rocks my world. as much as most of their albums sound almost identical, cake definitely has a style all their own.]
the Frames - "Rent Day Blues (live)" [from their new live album.]
Teenage Fanclub - "About You"
Flesh for Lulu - "Postcards from Paradise" [long live the new flesh is a great, great album.]

Disband - "The Worst Kisser in the World" [disband is up and moving to athens, ga. their final show as greensboro residents is tomorrow night, 26th february 2004, at college hill sundaries. if you can make it, you will catch a supremeo rock show. guaranteed. come help say goodbye to these long time denizens of the greensboro scene.]
the Nein - "Handout" [by request. more NC rock. a really catchy song.]
Crimson Spectre - "Crimson Spectre" [on name alone these guys rock. local band. crosses the horror-punk speed of classic misfits with a socio-political tint. can't beat that.]
the Finks - "Ice Nine" [from their recent album. another winston-salem band.]
Camera Obscura - "Suspended from Class" [scottish rock ala belle and sebastian. good, glimmering pop.]
the Human League - "Seconds" [dare is a great record. think i'm lying?]

the Ramones - "Beat on the Brat" [by request. from katie, who always calls in with lovely requests. i'm glad she listens.]
the Pixies - "Gigantic" [by request. dude wanted pixies that rock. so he got it.]
Fizzle Like a Flood - "Nothing Much"
the Decemberists - "Human Behaviour" [the decemberists. covering bjork. doesn't get much better. their version is actually pretty faithful to the original...which means it's a great song.]
Nina Simone - "I Put a Spell on You" [one of jazz's alltime greatest vocalists does screamin' jay hawkins. lord have mercy.]
the Church - "Tristesse" [from heyday.]
Peter Bruntnell - "Handful of Stars" [wonderful, gorgeous british alt-country music. peter bruntnell is a sharp songwriter.]
