A whole metric shitload of UK DJ John Peel's '70s-2004 (he had to stop working then because he died) shows with live sets by boomer musos like David Bowie and The Spiders from Mars, Roxy Music, Joy Division, New Order, The Cure, Siouxsie & The Banshees, The Smiths, The Fall, Echo & The Bunnymen, Nirvana, Hole, Jack White, Elvis Costello, Cocteau Twins, The Jesus & Mary Chain, Sonic Youth, The Wedding Present, The Raincoats, Nick Drake, T-Rex, Buzzcocks, Can, Billy Bragg, Fairport Convention, Pulp, The Breeders, The Fugees, The Kinks, The Specials, The Slits, and Thin Lizzy.
Yes i copy and pasted that. Peel's show is why most of those bands got famous.
I first met Dave Wyndorf of Monster Magnet in 1981 when he was in a kind of pre-hardcore/post-Ramones "combat"-themed band called Shrapnel.
They used to play a fair amount of shows with a band i roadied for, The Minx, who were two bluegrass gals who discovered the punk rock, and realized that, as blugrassers, they could play way faster than the Ramones etc. Nice dude, but a total Neanderthal, who hated people that smoked weed (that apparently changed).
But good to see actual senior citizens, Dave being three years older than me, getting respect here.
Meanwhile, i am listening to this: 1973 Aussie tank-top mullet-kings, and MC-5 fanciers, The Coloured Balls, with "G.O.D." ["Guitar O.D."]"
Punk rock the way grandpa used to make, if he was Australian and a "Sharpie" (kind of like a punk a little too early and way too unfashionable).
I bounce between Ramones, dead kennedys, Gbh, blitz, Cock sparrer, DRI, Bad Brains.
And country Marty robbins, Roger Miller, Johnny cash.
There's a lot of inbetweeners. Ministry, synth and noise type stuff.
That's just a vague outline I also like a lot of classics.
No, they were produced by a Spector rival, "Shadow" Morton. He later did the second NY Dolls record, and was picked because the Dolls loved the Shangri-Las so much.
The Shangri-Las were tough "bad girls", who wore lots of black leather and had songs about "bad boys", whereas all Spector's acts had to be clean and pristine. Similar sounds. And it wasn't just image- little Mary brought a pistol on the road to keep off men.
