* Not on Spotify:
Well, most of it is on there, but I didn't make a Spotify playlist for this episode, since it seemed to defeat the purpose of recording a live mix.
Special All-Vinyl Mix Show
Once, in the Before Time, I used to periodically DJ at bars around town. This is an attempt to recreate one of these sets, both for the enjoyment of those trapped at home by the pandemic, and as an audition tape, of sorts, for when (if?) we return to "normal."
Spacemen 3 - Losing Touch With My Mind: My favorite song from what is perhaps the most literally-titled album of all time, "Taking Drugs To Make Music To Take Drugs To." Six minutes of the Spacemen at their best, churning out variations on a theme, centered around Pete Bain's chugging bass.
The Jimmy Castor Bunch - L.T.D. (Life, Truth & Death): Taken from their most successful album, It's Just Begun, which I found sealed(!) in a thrift store when I was in college. Jimmy Castor is best known for his novelty songs (e.g. The Bertha Butt Boogie, King Kong), but he turned out some pretty legitimate jams as well, including It's Just Begun's title track (a staple of early hip-hop DJ's sets), and this number, a Latin-inflected, psychedelic burner.
Muddy Waters - She's All Right: I am convinced that if you figured out a way to remove Muddy Waters' voice and dub in Damo Suzuki's, you could convince the less-musically-aware that this is a lost CAN track. Neither the snaky, noodling guitar, the minimalist bass, nor the thumping, caveman-style drums would've sounded out of place on an outtake from Ege Bamyasi, say. Also, if someone can offer an explanation as to why the band plays a few bars of "My Girl" during the coda, I'd love to hear it.
