j's indie/rock mayhem - 10th november 2004

[so a really, really great show wednesday, even if i do say so myself. (and i do.) i had a blast with this. don't forget to tune in tonight, november 12th, for the WQFS interview with the nein on mad dog's friday night rock party. originally the interview was supposed to be on my show, but technicalities got in the way. so they're on, live tonight during the 6 o'clock hour, before their show at gate city noise down on tate street. onward.]

Theme Song - Peaches - "Rock Show"
the Nein - "Handout" [from their self-titled EP. these guys are tearing up the NC rock scene right now. dig it.]
Idlewild - "A Modern Way of Letting Go" [from their excellent 2003 album the remote part. it was #25 on the j's indie/rock top 25 albums list last year. what will top the list this year?]
Sonic Youth - "Pattern Recognition" [from sonic nurse. definitely on the top 25 list this year, but where? their last album, murray street, was my #9 of 2002.]
Talib Kweli - "Around My Way" [a lovely, amazing song from his newest, the beautiful struggle.]
Q and Not U - "X-Polynation" [from their newest, power. this is also a definite top 25 pick. 2002's different damage came in at my #5.]
Television - "See No Evil" [from the classic, unbeatable marquee moon.]
Saint Etienne - "Nothing Can Stop Us" [from the new best of collection, travel edition: 1990 - 2005. this is originally from their debut album fox base alpha. great, dancey, early brit-pop.]
Del Amitri - "Tell Her This" [one of my favorite songs of all time. from their album twisted.]
Wovenhand - "The Speaking Hands" [david edwards' (of sixteen horsepower) solo project. this is from the new album consider the birds. spooky, rustic, haunting and beautiful. it's as if this man can do no wrong in my ears.]
the Jayhawks - "I'm Gonna Make You Love Me" [one my favorite jayhawks' songs, from the album smile.]
the Bens - "Just Pretend" [by request. the collective work of bens lee, kweller and folds. a great, fun little self-titled EP.]
Drive-by Truckers - "Cottonseed" [by request. hot damn. this smoldering, mike cooley penned song is a real winner from their amazing the dirty south. this is another definite top 25 of the year. in 2002 and 2003 they ranked #s 20 and 3, respectively on my list.]
Joseph Arthur - "Devil's Broom" [from the excellent new our shadows will remain. i love this guy. atmospheric and searching rock.]
Eric B. & Rakim - "I Ain't No Joke" [from the monumental paid in full.]
Oneida - "Each One Teach One" [the title track from their 2002 double album. i haven't played this much since it came out, but it is a hellacious and pounding noise-rock album.]
Prince - "The Cross" [from the brilliant sign 'o' the times. i love prince.]
the Minus 5 - "Hotel Senator" [from the new at the organ LP. good, well-thought out pop music.]
Blackalicious - "First in Flight" [from blazing arrow. i love the lyrics to this song quite a bit. especially "and you find what you learn, you're only remembering." awesome.]
the Stone Roses - "She Bangs the Drums" [stuck in my head all week. so had to exercise it. from their masterpiece self-titled album.]
Tammy Wynette - "Your Good Girl's Gonna Go Bad" [i'm way behind sometimes. i'd never heard this song until a couple of weeks back. then i find that i actually owned it on a beat up greatest hits record i'd gotten from someone but not listened to. i'm bad about those things.]
Tom Waits - "Hoist That Rag" [from the real gone, real gone. another top 25 of the year.]
the Beastie Boys - "Right Right Now Now" [from the long-in-the-making to the 5 boroughs. top 25? quite possibly.]
the New Pornographers - "From Blown Speakers" [from the astounding electric version.]
Mazzy Star - "Fade Into You" [from their 1994 album so tonight that i might see. i have a 45 single of this that i adore.]
the Damnwells - "What You Get" [from their latest, bastards of the beat. this is going to be the surprise album of this year on my top 25. it has slowly grown on me more and more. these guys are good.]
the Wedding Present - "No" [from their album bizarro. this is something i just pulled out to try. aside from the oddly ian curist-esque warble on the lead singer (which is only slightly off putting), it's a great piece of early 90s brit jangle pop. not bad at all.]

We'll see you next week. Take care.
