Hello Dad, I'm in Jail.

Pump up the Volume staring Christian Slater as a pirate radio dj in some early 90's desolate Arizona suburb was for me, a great inspiration. The music was all wild and the naked chick gave me a boner. What was released as the soundtrack was an abysmal piece of doo-doo that left off all of the most crucial musical nuggets, with the exception of the Henry Rollins and Bad Brains cover of "Kick out the Jams". For years I wondered who had written the awesome song about going to jail. I guess i could have just watched the ending credits and the mystery would have been solved, but i never did. Sometimes the mystery is more fun. It wasn't until I decided that I needed to watch some old episodes of MTV's Liquid Television that i discovered the frighteningly odd truth. The song was by WAS (NOT WAS), those dudes who wrote that song about opening the door and getting on the floor and then everybody walking the dinosaur.
 Go figure.

here go the song if you want to have it.

Shocking Blue- LOVE BUZZ

i have a tendency of discovering songs that rattle something in my skull and proceed to listen to them over and over for hours on end.
 this week it is LOVE BUZZ by Shocking Blue.
i am saying.

The Twinkeyz- Aliens in Our Midst (Complete Recordings 1977 - 1980)

a heady collection of obscure and weird as shit psychedelic sci-fi power pop out of late 70's Sacramento.
crucially odd and infectiously catchy.
