Mini Mix Friday november 7th, 2009: Some Ghosts

A different kinda nightcrawler…

Gangsta Gangsta – Mike Beck – Off his Corner Da Market album from 2007. It is a sad fact of life that the best think a rapper can do from a business point og view. This is a hard and brittle piece of gangsta rap that starts with a glock firing and continues with a drum and keyb in lockstep so easy for Beck to rap between. It’s all gats and lexus and makes me feel oddly nostalgic till reality blows it the fuck away.

Push The Feeling On (Kurtis Mantronik remix)- The Nighcrawlers – Puuuf, pup, puuuf, pup: you know what I mean, its all synth drums and synth bass and an organ keyboard part that I’ve heard many places -including Rihanna’s “Don’t Stop the Music” till I read an article in Stone mentioning it is the sample Pitbull uses in his terrific “Hotel room Service”. The band a UK house band from the 90s and this mix is really huge and needs to blasted except… it is also a touch tinny. That’s what modern science does -it lessens the tinny quota.

Santa Monica – Everclear – “I am still living with youuuure ghost…” back in 1995 Art Alexakis was mistaken for a Cobain wannabe though a closer listen in a different age might have found a child of Springsteen if only because they shared a blue collar ethic that seemed to cripple Cobain but freed Art and Bruce. This song off Sparkle And Fade  was Everclear’s break through, reportedly, though maybe Helen can update us after the interview, for his teenage girlfriend who commited suicide. It is a hard rock ballad without an ounce of pathos but with teenage angst a plenty.

Dishrag – Spider Bags – When I said Spider Bags sounded like the Rolling Stones playing country circa 1971 what I meant was “Dishrag” sounds like Richard hell fronting Johnny Thunders Heartbreakers covering the ramones covering Mick Jagger with a cold singing a country rock song on amphetimes. I hope that explains it.
