Allswellgirl – Drive
This mix is designed for a road trip. Some songs are about driving or moving, others are just good driving songs.
David Holmes – Gone (from the K&D Sessions) – C’mon, it may not have any vocals, but it speaks volumes as you’re pulling out of town.
Fu Manchu – Boogie Van – Some of the best times have been in a boogie van. Ideal for the onramp and getting up to speed.
Dozer – Crimson Highway – One of my favorite new(er) bands – Zay Komm from Sveeeden.
Boris – Electric – By now, you’re doing 80 and gripping the wheel tight. Japanese primadonna rock band with a real showy drummer.
David Bowie (Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars) – It Aint Easy – Turn it up a little more and sing it at the top of your lungs!
Langhorne Slim - Restless – I stumbled across this guy at The Middle East. Not quite-as-scrappy Dylanesque.
Melvins –Civilized Worm – this is the “hit” from their latest record.
Bible of The Devil – Judas Ships – This CD has been in my car since it came out this summer. Harmonizing guitars are so EPIC!
Slough Feg – Hiberno-Latin Invasion – Brothers of Bible of The Devil and solid rockers.
Deadbird – Rorshack Sky – These guys are real composers – their live show is like a super sludgy climb on a music theory jungle gym.
Jello Biafra with The Melvins – The Lighter Side of Global Terrorism – punk rock + The Melvins = a winning combination. I’d still like to hear just one solution from Jello, though.
Sasquatch – Believe It – Another one of my favorite new bands for which I have Arz to thank.
Doomriders – Ride or Die – Yeah, they’re talking about a skateboard, but drive like you mean it!
Leather Nun – Unknown – Swedish hard rock band from the late 70s – don’t know much about ‘em.
Mariah Carey – Shake it Off – HAHAHAHAH! C’mon, you probably hate ice cream and sex, too. Damn, this is a catchy song, and it fits in with the theme – don’t you ever just want to cast someone aside and go for a drive? Fine, skip it if you’re afraid your teeth will fall out.
Victory At Sea – Bored Otherwise – For the introspective ending to your trip, just as you’re reaching some familiar ground again, you start thinking about where you came from.
Thievery Corporation – Heaven’s Gonna Burn Your Eyes – Just to let you back down easily.
Thanks for listening!
