WARNING HALLOWEEN HeaderWell even thought Warning Radio has been more or less DEAD for just about a year I couldn’t resist getting in on the act again this year and creating another Halloween mix. Mostly because last year I had so many songs that I did not include on the first Halloween Special but in reality I really just wanted an excuse to use a the sound clip “I Got A Rock” from the Peanuts The Great Pumpkin. Enjoy the mix and weather you are taking in a party, heading out to a bar or trekking the neighborhood with the kids be safe and have fun.

WARNING HALLOWEEN HeaderI’ve been kicking around the idea of doing a halloween podcast for a few years. Halloween mixes are not uncommon and this year I could not resist getting in on the act. I mean it’s kind of a no brainer. With bands like Bauhaus, Joy Division and countless other darkwave and electro/industrial bands to choose from it was begging to be done. I didn’t stray too far from some of the alternative classics that come to mind when talking about a Halloween mix but I threw in just enough other tunes in to keep it fresh. Enjoy the mix for a limited time and look for Warning Radio Episode 011 coming very soon.

Happy Halloween,
Matthew Rubbish

coverOk first, I’m going to say this is going to be my last post concerning covers (for a while anyway) and second, though there are many it would be very difficult for anyone to convince me of a band that has had a bigger influence on classic alternative, indie and new wave music than The Velvet Underground. Being that VU are and have been one of my favorite bands for a very long time I know I’m a little biased in this statement but I don’t think I’m alone.

So when I almost included The Cowboy Junkies mellowed out version of Sweet Jane to round off the recent covers podcast I began to think of the number of other Warning Radio artists who have covered The Velvet Underground and it wasn’t hard to quickly build a playlist.  From the Primitives (Which I’m guessing is a nod to a name used by a Pre-Velvet Underground Lou Reed project) to Psychic TV’s drugged out version of Foggy Notion (complete with fictitious conversation between Candy Darling and Andy Warhol) this by no means a complete list but a nice sample of a few classic alternative artists heavily influenced by The Velvet Underground.

COVERS 2!

WARNINGWOW! Due to the response outta people from the recent alternative classics covers mix I thought “what the hell” I might as well keep it going. Basically when I started to compile all the tracks for the covers podcasts I started a spotify playlist and kept adding to it as I would think of possible songs to add to the mix.

So since there were quite a number of songs that didn’t make the cut on the 45 minute podcast, I thought I’d pass along the rest of playlist.

And of course another BONUS video from the AV Club

Whether true to the original or a completely new take I’ve always been a sucker for cover songs. I couldnt tell you how many mixtapes I created for people back in the day comprised completely of covers. I also have a funny (slightly embarrassing) story that I will spare you about knocking back beer after beer in a basement bar in Montreal because of a Creedence cover band. Damn that Molson Export!

Not a huge milestone but I had been thinking for a while for a theme for Warning Radio’s 10th podcast and the covers idea was a bit of a no brainer so I went with it. This time though I decided to mix it up a bit and not only include some of Warning Radio’s most well known artists covering  tunes, I mixed in a few newer bands that I dig tackling some alternative classics.

WARNING RADIO PODCAST 010 TRACK LISTING
01. SONIC YOUTH – I Know There’s An Answer (The Beach Boys)
02. TERRY EDWARDS – Never Understand (Jesus & Mary Chain)
03. THE MARCH VIOLETS – Miss Amanda Jones (Rolling Stones)

NEVER MIND THE MAINSTREAM

In 1991 MTV and Rhino Records teamed up for 120’s Minutes excellent compilation NEVER MIND THE MAINSTREAM. The 2 CD set gathered up several of the long running show’s mainstays as well as some of the biggest tracks in late 80’s early 90’s indie and alternative complete with photos and band bio’s from the shows long time host Dave Kendall.

I bought both CD’s at my local record store when they came out and they are still in my collection. Sure the comps do not include any deep cuts or rare tracks but both CD’s not only rattle through hit after hit with some of the powerhouse bands in classic college rock but the set greatly show just how diverse MTV’s world of 120 Minutes could be.
