The Return of the Desert Island Jukebox Draft - Drop in a quarter

Recommended Posts

I just won an epic game of Trivial Pursuit with my mom. She was up 3-0 and 5-2. Got stuck on the green triangle (sports) and left the door open. She got some major softball questions. What is the geometric shape in the Canadian Tire logo - I know not common knowledge for Americans but it's like asking what the geometric shape in the Target logo is. 

I was down to just pink (arts and entertainment) but that's usually a lot of tv/music and I can handle that. "What TV series lost Canadian Jill Hennessy as Assistant District Attorney Clair Kinkaid in 1996?". Now I have no idea who Jill or Clair is but I know what 90s series' about attorneys warrant Trivial Pursuit questions... Law and Order, for the win.

I always found Clapton overrated.  The only record of his that I really love is Derek and the Dominoes.

Way overrated.  I would have liked to take Derek and the Dominoes, but the dice didn't roll that way.  :)

My mom also got (for a wedge) "does the fabled ice worm of story and song actually exist"?  Come on, yes/no for a wedge? Get out of here...

 

 

Yes it does.

In the spirit of this draft and my jukebox in particular, I'll admit I got one embarassingly wrong. It was what Shania Twain album broke the record for most country album sales etc...

I said Come on Over but apparently it was The Woman in Me

Mutt Lange for that incessant sound I heard everywhere in the mid-to-late 90s. And Loverboy was pretty Canadian, all things considered. A polite hard rock band.

I think anywhere, but we're playing Genus IV, which came out in 1996, which may have been a factor. We both know what we're playing though, I just biffed it.

Or no way at all

And I was here to please

Makin' love to whoever I please

I think I can guess your '82 pick. I just googled "Canadian bands, 1980s" and was immediately slammed in the face with a pick.

I went Payolas, Eyes of a Stranger, because all the other Police cover bands were taken.

Steve Bays' voice is an acquired taste but this was the best Canadian band in the dance/punk movement of the 00s. The album this is from Make up the Breakdown and the follow up, Elevator are front to back classics.

Can you deny that what you found
Is just a suspect and you're trying to play it down
Need some changes in the plans you make
You've got new arrangements for the sounds you make
New attractions from the satisfactions
Too much thinking about your government
Alright, all wrong, alright
Dance to the underground

I passed up another Canadian classic by taking this one...

Chill out, what ya yellin' for?
Lay back, it's all been done before
And if, you could only let it be, you will see...

I like you the way you are
When we're driving in your car
And you're talking to me one on one, but you become...

Somebody else
'Round everyone else
You're watching your back
Like you can't relax
You try to be cool
You look like a fool to me
Tell me...

I don't know if I mentioned it earlier in that thread because of wik's criticism, but I was once a pretty solid Ted Leo fan during the Hearts of Oak and The Tyranny of Distance era. Then he sort of became to me what wik described. But those are quality albums if one is in the mood. And Leo is pretty revered in indie circles, sometimes rightly so. Must have been an interesting show. Ground zero for a hipster bomb.

I remember that character and actor. We used to watch Law and Order all the time in '97-'98-'99. Always a thorny constitutional issue or some such Wattersonian issue.

It was -- made even more interesting by my high school buddy's band being the other opening act. Their frontman didn't show up until 15 minutes before showtime and Ted was PISSED. 

I think Shake the Sheets is just as good as HoO and TToD, as is about half of The Brutalist Bricks. Living with the Living is where he becomes a parody of himself in spots, and the album could have easily lost 5-6 songs from it. 

I've seen him 6 times. The Radio 4/high school buddy show was in Albany (on the Shake the Sheets tour) and the others were in Philly. All were with the Pharmacists except the most recent one, which was a solo set opening for Bob Mould.

Who can forget that episode where Watterston got gay marriage overturned in New York State (or maybe it was just New Paltz) so he could prevent a defendant's partner from using spousal privilege to avoid testifying.

That's when you look at Ted and tell him "hey, we're all pros, like, what the ####?" Love to see how that would go over. What was your buddy's band like?

If possession is 9/10ths of the law, then damn it, procedure and evidence are the other 9/10ths.

They were called The Sixfifteens and played melodic punk type stuff. My buddy (the drummer) and the frontman had previously played in a band called Dryer, a leaner and more successful version of the same idea, and re-formed Dryer when The Sixfifteens broke up. Dryer still exists today, though they are much less active than back in the day.

Not familiar. 

One of the biggest differences between Dryer and Sixfifteens is that Dryer has a co-frontwoman.

Yep. She was apparent and had a twee sound to her vocals. That's why I said that. Mint Records is obscure. They merged for a while with Lookout! Records in the late nineties/early aughts to put out Canadian pop-punk releases in America. Was an interesting arrangement. I'd list examples, but I'd have to [redact] those ####ers.

That's very cool, though. All of it. I think the Sixfifteens had a little more yowl in 'em.

Got it. After their first album came out in 1996, Dryer was offered a deal by a major label that was looking for the next Veruca Salt. The condition was that the co-frontwoman do all the singing. The band said no.

Yeah. Frontman was going through some weird s**t at the time that made his singing/writing more angry and emphatic. I have some interesting stories.

Alright! Early to rise even for the East Coast. Let's start off today with a track from the esteemed producer James Dewitt Yancey, better known around the hip hop world as J Dilla. Dilla was a producer savant that was one-third of the group Slum Village and also produced tracks for the Pharcyde, The Roots, and other luminaries.  Unfortunately, he had his life cut short by a rare blood disorder. He's considered widely as one of the most influential hip hop producers ever, and he cut this while in treatment for that which eventually felled him, released on the now-classic turntablist and beat-making tract called Donuts.

Round 38.xx

Artist: J Dilla

Song: Last Donut Of The Nite

Year: 2006
