Vinyl-O-Matic Season 4, Episode 8
45s and Other Revolutions: A-Sides beginning with B, Part 5
Greenway Records GWY-021 (2016)
In case you didn't already know, LA Witch are pretty damned rad.
The Ladybug Transistor
a: "Brighton Bound"
b: "Cienfuegos (Cicada Sonata)"
Elefant Records ER-226 (2000)
For all you fellow Elephant 6 fans.
a: "Brother Warrior"
b: "Cornflower Blue"
Palace Records PR27 (2002)
Once upon a time I was a Palace/Will Oldham/Bonnie 'Prince' Billy completist. I was fortunate enough to pick up this single at a BPB show in Monte Rio CA, of all places, in 2002. Rainywood played that date as well. Rainywood would later become Brightblack Morning Light.
Chuck Berry & His Combo
a: "Brown Eyed Handsome Man"
b: "Too Much Monkey Business"
Chess Records 1635 (1956)
Never too much monkey business as far as this simian is concerned.
The Rolling Stones
a: "Brown Sugar"
Rolling Stones Records RS-19100 (1971)
Here's Keef and The Rooster checking out a mix of Brown Sugar.
The Rock and Roll Dubble Bubble Trading Card Co. of Philadelphia
a: "Bubble Gum Music"
b: "On a Summer Night"
Buddah Records BDA 78 (1968)
Seems like the perfect branding fit and namedropping all the while with the likes of Boyce and Hart, The Monkees, and 1910 Fruitgum Company.
a: "Burning Down the House"
b: "I Get Wild/Wild Gravity"
Sire Records 7-29565 (1983)
Sure they got the attention of us nerds with Once in a Lifetime, but this was pretty much their breakout, reaching all the way to Number 9 on the Billboard Hot 100.
a: "Burning Up"
b: "Physical Attraction"
Sire Records 7-29609
Easily my favorite Madonna single, no question. Mike Watt's rendition is pretty rad too. The B side could easily have been 3 minutes shorter.
Music Behind the DJ: “Gomez” by Vic Mizzy (1964).
Cover image: Selma Blair as Liz Sherman in Hellboy 2: The Golden Army (del Toro, 2008).
