For no particularly good reason, here are a few songs pulled from the mp3 pile.
R. Crumb & His Cheap Suit Serenaders - Get A Load of This
Cartoonist Robert Crumb put out several albums in the mid-70s with his outfit The Cheap Suit Serenaders. This track came from their first full-length album "Cheap Suit Serenaders No. One"
Add a few scratches and ignore the references to TV and "Bowling For Dollars" and this would sound like it came straight off one of those 78s up in Grampy's attic.
The Chameleons U.K. - Swamp Thing
The shimmering guitar figure that kicks off this track always sticks around in my head for the rest of the day every time this one gets played.
The Feelies - Let's Go
Though they were described by one WFMU DJ as "the best thing to come out of New Jersey since the light bulb", The Feelies are one of the underappreciated indie-rock bands of the 1980s. This track is from their 1985 sophomore effort The Good Earth, produced by R.E.M.'s Peter Buck.
