    Warren, you must have been one of the customers (or the possessing spirit thereof) who came into the record store (when I was working at one in college) who would smoke clove cigarettes in the back corner of the store and laugh at me when I had to sell Phil Collins and Sade records to people. Well, I was also the one who put on the cool stuff over the store system when the yuppies left, so that makes me cool too, right?

    Great jukebox so far, keep 'em coming.

    oh man.
    as much as i loved the wall of noise of early Swans i always absolutely adored late period cheesy goth Swans. The Burning World & White Light From The Mouth of Infinity are great albums. An amalgam of Bauhaus, Sisters of Mercy and Leonard Cohen.

    Damn, I miss Lush; seeing them and the Jesus and Mary Chain at the second Lollapalooza was a defining moment of my teenage years.

    Damn you Warren, I almost went a whole day without listening to Joy Division. Well, that's shot to hell...*puts Unknown Pleasures on loop and begins badly playing bass along to it* I blame you for this.

    Wow it's like a late 80's student disco, I can almost see the winklepickers drowning in a lake of spilled snakebite while some bowlcut in a baggy black crew neck jumper tells me for the tenth time that The Pastels are the best band in the universe.

    this posting made me go to youtube and listen to 'Joy Division Oven Gloves' by Half Man Half Biscuit. my day is off to a very happy start now.

    That Joy Division post made me go looking for a song that turns out to be "The Captain and Tenille Meet Joy Division" by goofy Boston '80s band the Swinging Erudites. It almost sounds like Michael Gira singing it. Sadly, it's not online but the Swinging Erudites have a MySpace page.

    Fred Frith string arrangement on that album, I think.

    Yeah, he played violin on it.

    wow - i'd never heard that before. that's pretty nuts sounding.

    did he do this around the same time as Can did that Rite Time album? that also had a real World Music (in the andy kershaw sense of the phrase) type vibe to it.

    My favorite Czukay project was the "Plight and Premonition" album that he did with David Sylvian in 1988. I was house sitting out in the country and that was one of the CDs out there. It just filled this huge art-filled house with an ambient wash and I loved it. Really fit with the remoteness of the location.

    This is from CANAXIS, 1968. Copey has a nice bit on it.

    Plight & Premonition is incredible, and Flux + Mutability is very good, too. Both with Sylvian.
