Starting with either a sample or a cool replication of a legendary one-off line in the Beatles' "Revolution No. 9" -- "Take this, brother, may it serve you well!" -- the Lips dive head-on into rock dreams on Oh My Gawd!!! Coyne's sudden resemblance vocally to Paul Westerberg is its own curiosity, but the Replacements never quite got so fried -- drunk, yes, but not fried. The cover, one weird-ass collage of skullmonsters, random photographs of landscapes, dogs and things, and, on the back, somebody literally burning up serves to set the mood just as much as the rampaging fun of "Everything's Exploding." The same combination of this and that which made Hear It Is a fun listen takes precedence here -- Coyne and company can strum along softly or crank everything up to ten and back as they please, and they do. Coyne's knack for utterly brilliant song titles also takes full life here -- how else to explain such hilarities as "Maximum Dream for Evil Knievel" or the flatly phrased "Prescription: Love," a groovy mindbender and arty rave-up all at once. While the Lips here are still a rock band par excellence, evidence of the band's increasing ambition kicks in with the simultaneously mocking and celebratory Pink Floyd vibes of "One Million Billionth of a Millisecond on a Sunday Morning." All ten minutes of it should really be on Ummagumma -- Richard English's drums are pure Nick Mason from the get-go -- but darn if it doesn't sound equally great here, as Coyne idly wonders what to do with himself in the time allotted. Other songs throw in everything from Led Zeppelin drum stomps to Mountain/Deep Purple raspy rock bellowing and more besides -- theoretically everything mid-'80s American indie rock wasn't, making the Lips that much more of a fun, unique trip. - AllMusic

T-BONE WALKER - SINGING THE BLUES 1959. If you have enjoyed an electric blues guitar solo by pretty much anyone ever, you are aware of T-Bone Walker’s legacy. Stevie Ray Vaughan, B.B. King, Chuck Berry, The Allman Brothers and about a thousand others were directly influenced by T-Bone’s innovative phrasing and guitar solo style of the 1940s and 1950s. Ever heard a song called “Stormy Monday”? I thought so. Ever seen/heard any footage of Hendrix playing guitar with his teeth? Guess what? Indirectly, you have probably been aware of T-Bone for years. Direct introductions are probably in order. This LP culls from a stack of 50s 78s, and is rock solid top to bottom. Though the flakes be aloft tonight, things should be mellow come Sunday. You can then come to the Long Island Music Lovers Faire in Massapequa, NY, and take Aaron Thibeaux “T-Bone” Walker home where he belongs. #badkittymusic #longislandrecordandcdloversexpo #tbonewalker #33rpm #instavinyl #vinylgram #massapequarecordshow

FAVORITE CHILDHOOD MOVIE OF ALL TIME. No question. Pretty Woman soundtrack was a huge success and is jammed packed with amazing songs from David Bowie, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, and of course Roy Orbison. The song that inspired the films title, Oh Pretty Woman, was inspired by Roy Orbison's wife, Claudette, when she interupted a conversation with his co writer to announce she was going out. When Roy asked her if she had enough cash, his co writer said "A pretty woman never needs any money." FUN FACT, the scene where Richard Gere plays piano in the hotel lobby was actually composed by and performed by Gere. FREE FUCKING TIBET IS RIGHT, MY FRIEND!
We can never visit Sweden without taking a couple of these with us. #killerboogie
