    I am looking forward to BST next week. Wayne will be doing your sound. I would like to hear you play the Sonics,’ Strychnine’ if possible. And since you’re playing Reed this week, what do think of doing some Clay Pendergrass next show?

    • Anonymous

      I think there is a chance of that, anything in particular?

      • Pamitha42

        Maybe ‘Ode to Willie NelsonI from ‘East Dallas Mix Tape’? I like when you surprise me, too. I also love the Killbilly suggestion. I miss them.

  • B L Zebubba

    In thinking what I could suggest I thought it’d been a long time since we’d heard any Bosque Brown but you beat me to it. Of course you could always play more of hers/theirs.

    Mmmm – how ’bout some Heartless Bastards’ “Parted Ways”? Here’s their web-site so you can get a non-MP3 version: http://www.partisanrecords.com/artists/heartless-bastards/catalog/arrow .

      what a coincidence, I just unwrapped their CD . It came in this weeks mail !!!

      • B L Zebubba

        Great minds ….

  • Thom

    Killbilly – ‘Running Gun’ from ‘Foggy Mountain Anarchy’
    The Psychedelic Furs- ‘Heaven’ or anything else you want from them
    Paul McCartney – ‘Magneto and Titanium Man’ from ‘Venus and Mars’

  • Kraken Cleetus

    I wonder if you could play a little CocoRosie? I’d suggest The Moon Asked the Crow or Haitian Love Song.

      sure thing, it has been a while since I played any CR. thanks

  • Design4food

    I’ve been really digging Herzog, a band out of Cleveland, lately. Especially the track “Paul Blart and the death of art”. It’s a fun listen.

    And now for something completely different, your current track makes me think of Trilok Gurtu.

  • Lee

    Some Cowboys & Indians. Some Jamie Cullum.

  • Martini&Katie

    Grimes released their single called Genesis recently. It’s a really good one. How about that for next week’s playlist?
