Music Notes Labour Day Edition, 2017

September 4, 2017 at 7:46 pm (Uncategorized)

OK, the last weeks of August were extremely busy for me, and the monthly music notes post completely slipped my mind.  So, this isn’t the August pitch, but will serve as a (retro) stopgap. Hope to be back on track in September.

1 Dions- “Runaround Sue”

Now who are those people in the audience, and why does he have his uncles in his band?

2. The Spinners – “The Carnival is Over”

Just a beautiful song.


3.  The Exciters- “Tell Him”

A trip to the zoo with the Exciters



4. Squeeze – “Up the Junction”

A stunning kitchen-sink drama in the form of a three minute pop song.

5.  Shonen Knife – “Riding on the Rocket”

Hilariously awful video masks terrific song


6. The Honeycombs – “Have I the Right? ”

Joe Meek classic with Honey Lantree on drums

7. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – “Deena”

Looking totally demonic



8. Gene Chandler – “Duke of Earl”

Nothing can stop…

9. The B-52s – “Give me Back my man”

I love black and white. And this is a great song.


10 Elastica – “Stutter”

In the brief moment they were cool, Elastica were the coolest.
