Playlist and Archive for Monday (2/11/08)
I've made it no secret that on Monday's show I interviewed Jinx Dawson.
But don't let that take away from the rest of the show! We had some good stuff in there. First I glammed the shit out of things with the wonderfully androgynous Sweet:
After that we moved on to swarthy looking Greek band Aphrodite's Child, with their sorrowful ruminative number "It's Five O' Clock." Take a look at the organ player. He just might be the coolest man who ever lived, a man who must wake up in a different backyard every night. Also, check out the dancing invisible men at the end:
Finally we have the melancholy drug ballad "Sugar Man" by Rodriguez. The only decent video I could find of the studio version looks like a goddamn iPod commercial:
I often think that my life would be so much more enriching if I played the organ.
UPDATE: Yeah, so that organ player from Aphrodite's Child I posited as so cool? Scored motherfucking Blade Runner. His name is Vangelis.
