Water All Around

"Water all around...never learn how to swim now." This site is devoted to great alternative music. Like "Swingin' Party" by the Replacements from which the aforementioned lyrics hail. These posts are intended to introduce visitors to bands that I believe deserve greater attention. If you wish to have an MP3 removed, email me at zotzedwriter@yahoo.com.

Five fer Friday II

[MP3] XTC – “Funk Pop a Roll” EXPIRED
Andy Partridge is at his best when he’s angry, and in this song he’s very angry at the music industry.

[MP3] Bash & Pop – “Never Aim to Please”
When I heard Tommy sing “Tried to keep the party rolling … it rolled over me” in this his first post-Mats effort, I knew he was still a Replacement at heart.

[MP3] Stiff Little Fingers – “Alternative Ulster”
A true punk classic – SLF would never reach these heights again.

[MP3] Dropkick Murphys – “Good Rats” EXPIRED
Great DM tune featuring Shane MacGowan of the Pogues.

[MP3] Fountains of Wayne – “Bowling Shoes (Live)” EXPIRED
This would later become “The Girl I Can’t Forget” which appears on their B-side collection, Out-of-State Plates.

Have a great weekend. Go state!
