MP3 Recorded From Brents Record Collection!! Amazing!!

Bikini Kill- anti pleasure dissertation.
I love this single mainly because they stepped out of that kinda Riot Grrrl formula and just really rocked on this 90’s indie-rock lost gem…Riot Byyyz

Northern Picture Library-last septembers farewell kiss.
a real heartbreaker from the underrated Sarah Records label wether your in love with you girlfriend, boyfriend , best friend or yourself you have to love the line “you really care about me don’t you?” Killer bass line

Flying Saucer Attack- outdoor miner
one the best cover versions ever…sounds like it was recorded underwater

Theatre of Hate- legion

produced by Mick Jones of the Clash decades before the Libertines used him…there wasn’t even a name for this kind of music when i got this 7″…now they call it post-punk and this is a prime example…the bass player was Stan Stammers..pretty cool name!

Comet Gain- kids at the club

i bought this 7″ (Holloway Sweethearts e.p.) on a trip to London and ended up spending my own money to release their first lp on our little label (xmAs records) they went on to bigger things because they are the real thing…love music and all that comes with it…you can be a “kid at the club” at ANY AGE!
Soul Static Sound 7″

Nick Lowe- so it goes

the best rock & roll song ABOUT rock & roll ever…Stiff records 7″ from the late 70’s!

fluf-barf
so-cal punk friend-core Mascis Mould eat your heart out! Sympathy for the Record Industry 7″ 1992

Palace-west palm beach-gulf shores

Drag City Records finest moment…if I was them I woulda closed up shop after this release because it’ll never be topped. Will Oldhams ode to our home state of Florida it’s a great comedown after all the loud guitars. There’s waves in Florida u’know?!?

 

Selectable Playlist

Fargo- Talks We Used To Have
25 cent thrift store find that blew me away…super melodic and shoulda been massive… Ariel Pink mines this territory lately…these dudes were a Mormon two piece from SLC that loved the Byrds as much as God

Flying Saucer Attack- Outdoor Miner

one the best cover versions ever and off a one-sided 7″ too boot! sounds like it’s underwater.

Theatre of Hate- Legion
produced by Mick Jones of the Clash decades before the Libertines used him…there wasn’t even a name for this kind of music when i got this 7″…now they call it post-punk and this is a prime example…the bass player was Stan Stammers..pretty cool name!

Swervedriver- Juggernaut Rides
Swervedriver IS 90’s surf-rock even though they were from Oxford, England and sang songs about cars and lame scenesters…their songs always go through my head when i paddle out. Creation Records always found the best bands!

Nick Lowe- So it goes

the best rock & roll song ABOUT rock & roll ever…Stiff records 7″

Sebadoh- Kath
Lou Barlow went from being the best bass player in the best band ever (Dino jr. duh?) to a love-struck/heartbroken songwriting GENIUS who was also a lo-fi pioneer…sounds stupid to write but IT’S TRUE so i said it…i married the most wonderful girl in the whole world and guess what her name is?………………..kath.
