j's indie/rock mayhem - 4th february 2004

[this first show back in the old timeslot was a humdinger. due to new rules about rotation, my show is a rotation show officialy for the first time ever. i've had a specialty show as long as i've been a dj at WQFS. last year, when i was music director, i played tons of rotation because, well..i was vastly more familiar with it and i was putting most of it in there. so i knew it a lot better. plus, my taste played into it. so this will be a new challenge. onward.]

Theme Song - Peaches - "Rock Show"
Stellastar - "In the Walls"
the Charms - "The Wish Song" [by request. an okay song. it could grow on me, i suppose, but it's not spectacular.]
the Replacements - "Take Me Down to the Hospital" [good, classic 'mats.]
Sonic Youth - "Sunday" [the one that had the video with macaulay culkin in it. fab.]
Olivia Tremor Control - "Define a Transparent Dream" [OTC's debut album, dusk at cubist castle, was just re-released after a period of being out of print, i presume. cos there are no bonus tracks or anything. but this is an absolute gem from the elephant 6 stable.]
