About this Episode

The Ano'moanon [00:30]
a side: "Hello My"
b side: "The Free Web"
Palace Records PR 14 1997
The Brothers Oldham and friends.

Sugar [06:40]
a side: "Helpless"
b side: "Changes"
Singles Only Label SOL-203-7 1992
All killer and no filler from Mr. Mould. If you haven't read Bob Mould's autobiography, you should. It's really good.

Laughing Hyenas [14:32]
a side: "Here We Go Again"
b side: "Candy"
Touch and Go Records T&G#665 1990
One of my favorite singles from 1990, so much so in fact the sleeve is signed by the band. Actually found some footage of a show I was at from way back then!

The Leaves [20:59]
a side: "Hey Joe"
b side: "Funny Little World"
Mira Records 222 1966
Sure there are many versions of "Hey Joe", but this is the one that inspired Jimi Hendrix. Engage VintageVision.

The Beatles [27:17]
a side: "Hey Jude"
b side: "Revolution"
Apple Records 2273 1968
Yes, the a-side has been faded for your convenience.

B.J. Thomas [36:34]
a side: "(Hey Won't You Play)" Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song"
b side: "City Boys"
ABC Records ABP 12054 1975
I kinda dig the plaintive tacky piano. And oh those rascally City Boys, as sung by a nice country boy born and raised in Houston.

Tommy Tucker [43:17]
a side: "Hi-Heel Sneakers"
b side: "I Don't Want Cha"
Checker Records 1067 1964
Some of you latter day Mods be familiar with this a-side thanks to the Cross Section performing this sound on the OST and a track called "Dimples" from Quadrophenia.
a side: Whiskeytown "Highway 145" [49:14]
b side: Neko Case & the Sadies"My '63"
Bloodshot Records BS 037 1998
Pretty darned fine split from Bloodshot.

_Music behind the DJ: "Raindrops Keep Fallin on My Head" by Burt Bacharach.
