Fine Young Cannibals - Live New York Ritz (1986)

Fine Young Cannibals recorded live at the Ritz Club New York, USA (31st May 1986). 'Spin Radio' concert first broadcast in July 1986 & released by the I.R.S. label as a promotional vinyl LP.Unofficially released on CD in 1992 by the 'Not Guilty' label. A huge thank you to The Return of Liquidator blog site for posting this. It's one I have been on the look out for, for some time. I used to own the vinyl, which I paid something like $30.00 bucks for back in the "She Drives Me Crazy" fame. Saw this band and was mainly into them because of their ties to The English Beat, I forget who opened for them, but I am sure it was worthwhile. In fact, I think my girlfriend at the time even added a handy to the mix. Enjoy the sounds of the Fine Young Cannibals, like they were meant to be heard. Unstripped, undone, and more so raw than cooked. After the first album, they seemed to drop off quite a bit and get the record company treatment. More flash than sizzle. The early stuff, I quite fancy. Future Coachella spot? Beats Wire, I'd say...

McCrank's Juke - March Mix (2011)

McCrank's Juke - March Mix (2011)

I am more than a bit behind, hell I haven't even posted all the shows I got saved up. They're as good as saw dust on me shop floor. The kids are probably hollerin for the likes of Passion Pit remixing the latest Beastie Boys track from the new Hot Sauce Committee Pt, 2's lead single "Make Some Noise", but here at the juke, we're still savoring the likes on NIN, Echo and The Bunnymen and the reformed Big Audio Dynamite shows. Geezers like us, bypassing Kayne, anything Idol, and anything on a radio station that has a bumper sticker. Mix me up some of that tonic with the old school 80's, alternative rock, and the indie college scene via Sirius XM University and I am good to go in the summer shade. This latent mix features some madness from February that stretched out into March and April. From the Dum Dum Girls covering The Smiths, to the "too-early-to-be-retro" sounds of The Strokes. The delayed March mix - is my call out to get hyped and my own show on Sirius XMU - the blog satellite radio channel. I got it in me new Hyundai Santa Fe - yeah, what bitches! I got no paper. I can remix the mix and avoid all the Jasper Johns of the Clear Channel offerings - giving you the straight story and the below March Madness. Hear me XMU?? My own hour - you got plenty of time(s) to spare. Really - 2 hours of a Sirius/XMU Aquarium Drunkard show??? Christsakes!
