Round 56

3 Strange Days - School of Fish (90s on 9)

Thank you.  I was thinking of this song in the middle rounds but I couldn't remember the artist or title.  The only things I remembered was the riff and that Davey Faragher was in the band (or so I thought). 

It turns out Faragher and School of Fish guitarist Michael Ward both were in John Hiatt's touring band so I wasn't totally off.

Been listening to a lot of new punk today and I can say the genre seems to be doing pretty well. Lots of interesting stuff, nothing ground breaking but that’s punk for ya.

The old mohawked war horse is holding up better than modern Hair Metal

I saw them play for free in courtyard of the WTC back when the song was out.

I owe a ton here, sorry all.  We were camping all of Thanksgiving week and the internet was spotty at best.  I'll try to catch up.  You can't really "search" the excel (or I don't know how) so if I make a pick someone has made let me know.

Our good friend NV will return in January. 

My other friend Guy Who Likes Bad Music went on an ill advised post reporting spree after NVs first unjust banning and will sadly never grace these boards again. 

i still say it probably had more to do with the creed avatar than the posting/reporting

This will be interesting. The channel description is basically "songs that rock, regardless of when they were released." Doesn't necessarily have to be "underground," whatever that means.

This is my go-to channel when "My Love" and the like are on the Beatles Channel.  It includes songs that don't rock, too.  I don't know how to describe it well, but I will be here to mock anyone who doesn't choose properly.

Round 58.xx

Category: Faction

Song: Is Survived By

Artist: Touché Amoré

How about another testament for artistic endeavors as bestowing an earthly immortality? I'll take it. 

So notify my next of kin
And let them know there's so much more to believe in
It doesn't have to be based on blood
Because the next in line shouldn't have to know what they're made of

This is survived by who held me up
This is survived by who sang the song
And that sense of purpose has made it all worth it

So write a song that everyone can sing along to
So when you're gone you can live on, they won't forget you

This is survived by a love, this is survived by a cause;
That you aren't the only who remembers what it was
This is survived by a love, this is survived by a wish;
That you won't let down who has attached themselves to it
This is survived by a love, this is survived by a fear;
That all that's left when said and done is words you will never ever hear

Yeah, looking at the recent playlists, there's a ton of stuff that doesn't rock. Seems like it's stuff your cool Boomer uncle and Gen-X cousins would have in their collections. You know, the ones who always brought weed to the family gatherings that everyone took turns puffing behind the shed. 

I was pleasantly surprised to find one song on there that's obscure but I love. Unfortunately it's not on Spotify, but a similar one that I love equally from the same album is, so that's where I'm going tomorrow morning. Evening pick still way up in the air.

Just saw that Underground Garage is Little Steven's show. It used to be in syndication. I don't know what they play on XM, but there are certainly very much nuggets that can attest to its punkness. His show was straight out of Cavestomp! and those garage revivalist festivals that went on in the aughts from songs that were around '64-'67 with attitude. Then that expands to include psychedelia and all that.

Fertile category to pick from.

Round 59:

Underground Garage channel

Murder in My Heart for the Judge -- Moby Grape

Moby Grape is one of the most frustrating stories in music history -- we are lucky that their tale did not end as tragically as Badfinger's*. Early on, they signed a management contract so horrible that it restricts access to their music -- and their original members' ability to perform under the band name -- to this day. That and a number of missteps by their record company meant that their music, most of which was brilliant, has never been appreciated at more than a cult level. Their first (Moby Grape) and third (Moby Grape '69) albums are among the best discs released by anyone in the '60s.

The second, Wow, was not nearly as good, but boasts two killer songs. I noticed one of those had recently been played on the actual Underground Garage channel, but it is not on Spotify. Luckily the other one is, so I'm taking that. All five members contributed songs and vocals; this one was written by guitarist Jerry Miller and drummer Don Stevenson and sung by bassist Bob Mosley. 

* - As far as I know, no one in the band committed suicide, but guitarist/singer Skip Spence (who played drums on the first Jefferson Airplane album before joining the Grape) suffered from schizophrenia and was dismissed from the band after he went after Stevenson with an axe. His solo album Oar is also a cult classic. He spent much of the rest of his life battling drug problems and died of lung cancer in 1999.

I’m hoping the loaded dice comment was real because I would love to join the cool kids club tomorrow
