Suedehead Still

59 years ago James Dean died in a tragic car accident. Though Morrissey’s “Suedehead” isn’t directly about Dean, the video is an homage to him.

“One Way Street” from the self-titled Aerosmith album has always been my favorite Aerosmith song by a long shot.

The standout track of my new Madchester Monday night was Paul Oakenfold‘s remix of “W.F.L. (Wrote For Luck)” by the Happy Mondays (re-titled “W.F.L. (Think About The Future Mix)”).

“Voodoo Lady” is the funk track on Ween’s Chocolate & Cheese album. The song bounces along nicely (ahem).

If I could go go back in time (on a musical trip) my first stop would most definitely be Swinging London circa 1965-66. The band I would most want to see live—and probably my favourite of that era—are The Pretty Things.

Some nasty Italian acid jazz funk for you. “Say It Again” borrows heavily from the gut funk of “Good Good Feeling” by War and lays it on with vocals by none other than CeCe Rogers, psychedelic guitar riffs and live instrumentation that keeps it loose and oh so funky.
