About this Episode

Jason Traeger/DRAGONANGEL dream research labs [00:32]
a side: "Love, Love and Love"
b side: "We Can't Avoid Dying"
Kill Rock Stars KRS 333 1999
Pretty awesome release the Kill Rock Stars 7" singles club Mailorder Freaks.

Reverb Motherf***ers [05:30]
a side: "L.S.D. 25"
b side: "L.S.D. 25"
Vital Music 1991
NYC noise rockers I used to see perform quite a bit at various East Village venues. Oddly enough I found this single a few weeks ago at The Last Record Store, all the way out here in Santa Rosa, California.

Waylon Jennings [14:44]
a side: "Lukenbach, Texas (Back to the Basics of Love)"
b side: "Belle of the Ball"
RCA Records GB-11757 1977
Big hit for Waylon, and guest vox by Willie of course. Evidently Waylon was not really a fan of the song but saw the hit potential.

Madonna [21:25]
a side: "Lucky Star"
b side: "I Know It"
Sire Records 7-29177 1983
My second favorite Madonna single, and actually a pretty solid b-side. This was the 4th of the 5 singles that were released from her debut album, and her best performing on the US Hot 100 (although both Holiday and Lucky Star made it to the number 1 position on the US Dance chart).

Killdozer [30:20]
a side: "Lupus"
b side: "Nasty"
Touch and Go Records T&G#44 1989
An a-side disguised as a book report, and a b-side disguised as a Janet Jackson song.

Steppenwolf [37:46]
a side: "Magic Carpet Ride"
b side: "Sookie Sookie"
Dunhill ABC Records D-4161 1968
I'm just going to come out and say it... the single version of this song is better than the album version of this song.

Neko Case with The Sadies a side: "Make Your Bed" [44:37]
The Sadies b side: "Gunspeak/Little Sadie" [48:19]
Bloodshot Records BS 030 1998
Fine singles from the beginning of Neko Case's Chicago tenure.

Hüsker Dü [51:13]
a side: "Makes No Sense At All"
b side: "Love Is All Around"
SST Records SST 051 1985
You know what? We are going to make it afterall.

Music Behind the DJ: "Love Is All Around" by Sonny Curtis-esque.
