Well kids, it finally happened. I finally nabbed a copy of Dan the Automator’s 1989 EP, Music to be Murdered By. Needless to say, I’m beside myself with excitement to spin this 7-track dinosaur for the first time. I’m not really sure what to expect from a 1989 Dan Nakamura, but I can’t wait to find out. In regards to timeline, it would be another 10 years from the time of this release before I’d even hear of the man (1999’s So… How’s Your Girl? by Handsome Boy Modeling School), so let’s just say this is gonna be a fun spin.
Please take special note of the cheeky details in the album art. Classic Automator.
Ok, so Nitzer Ebb should never play second fiddle, but she’s now birthing the que since there was no time to spin Saccharine Trust today. Groove woes, am I right?!
Winston Smith’s, The Money Tree pairs perfectly with Jello Biafra’s anti-military, socially-conscious-Kool-Aid-drinking, leave-no-stone-unturned-rant-machine on Alternative Tentacles’ 1989 release, Last Scream of the Missing Neighbors. One of the two records spun today (the other being The Zombies’ Odessey and Oracle, side 2… twice).
Happy 72nd birthday today, to Raymond Douglas Davies! To celebrate, here is an insert from Jello Biafra with D.O.A.’s 1989 masterpiece, Last Scream of the Missing Neighbors. (These two things are, obviously, not related.) Happy birthday, good sir!
Pitchfork’s ominous debut is something of historical significance, as can be clearly seen by this ridiculous afterthought.
I know not much of Underworld outside of dubnobasswithmyheadman, and when I passed on, just the other day, a 2014 double vinyl reissue (for $30! you would have passed too!), I was bombarded, often at random times of the day, with the inevitable cloud of regret. Save for a DNBWMHM single, the only other Underworld album I own is, unfortunately, their sophomore effort, 1989’s Change the Weather…. blah blah blah. If you don’t already, acquire dubnobasswithmyheadman. Your self-loathing conscious will thank you.
