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)
04. THE DRUMS – Birthday (The Sugarcubes)
05. THE CURE – Hello, I Love You (The Doors)
06. LOVE AND ROCKETS – Lucifer Sam (Pink Floyd)
07. DUM DUM GIRLS – There Is a Light That Never Goes Out (The Smiths)
08. THE SMITHS – Golden Lights (Twinkle)
09. R.E.M. – Crazy (Pylon)
10. BLACK REBEL MOTORCYCLE CLUB – Let The Day Begin (The Call)
11. ORCHESTRAL MANOEUVRES IN THE DARK – VCR (The XX)
12. JULIAN COPE – 5 O’Clock World (The Vogues)
13. TOM TOM CLUB – Under The Boardwalk (The Drifters)

BONUS!  They Might Be Giants taking on Chumbawamba’s early 90’s sing along and New Jersey’s Titus Andronicus covering the TMBG hit Birdhouse In Your Soul.

CANDY TALKIN’

One really big advantage of living in Baltimore versus most other places around the US is it’s proximity to two other major cities on the east coast. If for one reason or another a band can’t work out a date or decides to skip Baltimore as long as you are willing to travel an hour or so Philly and DC are both an easy jaunt up (or down) I-95. Since it’s a bit closer I normally hit DC a little more often than Philly but over the past year or so I’ve been lucky to see some damn good bands up in Philly.

That said, I’d say The Jesus and Mary Chain are defently one of if not in the top 2-3 bands mentioned either on the blog or the Warning Radio Facebook page and on their latest trek through the sates I decided to forgo the Sunday DC show (I mean some people have to work on Monday right) and head up the road to Philly to catch the gig.

Much like their tour from a few years back the Mary Chain blazed through a very hits heavy set to a packed house. I know the boys are getting up there in years but at times the brothers Reid seemed to be mearly going through the motions and dispite the sound being sometimes spotty at times it was generally a sold show ripping through crowd favorites Just Like Honey, Head On and many of their other well known tracks but the highlight for me had to be the encore. After a brief break backstage the boys came out tearing it up with three from Psych Candy, The Hardest Walk, Taste Of Cindy and closing it out with Never Understand.

Here is the full set list and a few videos floating around online

1. Snakedriver 2. Head On 3. Far Gone & Out 4. Between Planets 5. Blues From A Gun 6. Teenage Lust 7. Sidewalking 8. Cracking Up 9. All Things Must Pass 10. Some Candy Talking 11. Happy When It Rains 12. Halfway To Crazy 13. Just Like Honey 14. Reverence  ENCORE: 15. The Hardest Walk 16. Taste Of Cindy 17. Never Understand

BROAD CHURCH MIX

Here is another gem I stumbled onto the other day and had to pass along. Check out the new Broad Church mix from Sonic Cathedral. A great mix heavy on the Jesus & March Chain and bands that have not only influenced them but bands that have been influenced by Mary Chain and more! A MUST hear in my opinion. Get the mix here and you can also follow Sonic Cathedral on twitter to get updates on all the new mixes @soniccathedral

JIM REID TAKES ON UPSIDE DOWN

Posted in CREATION RECORDS, JESUS & MARY CHAIN on November 9, 2010 by matthewrubbish

About a month or so ago I posted about the upcoming documentary on legendary UK label Creation Records aptly titled UPSIDE DOWN. The film recently made it’s debut in London to pretty glowing reviews but don’t expect Jesus & Mary Chain frontman Jim Reid to be seeing it anytime soon. Check out this article from the Daily Record on how Jim feels about the new doc as well as a bit of a glimpse of what the band went through in the early days and the possibility of a new album.

And if you haven’t done so already check out trailer for the film

With the 25th anniversary of the release of (in my opinion) one of the biggest alternative albums of all time looming there are bound to be discussions floating around about the LP Psychocandy and it’s influence.

Check out this awesome article and interview of Jim Reid via the Von Pip Musical Express. In the interview Jim reflects on the making of the seminal LP and even the possibility of some gigs to to mark event.

Check out the article HERE and this great viddie of the Mary Chain live on British TV from ’85
