Johnny Rotten gets it completely right when he says, “It ended at exactly the right time for all the wrong reasons.” One of the most inarguable statements in the history of music.
What the fuck…here is another song in honor of Davy Jones. The Monkees’ psychedelic classic, Porpoise Song, from the film, Head. Enjoy the video.
Of all the pre-fabricated bands, the pre-fab four were my favorite. R.I.P. Davy Jones, you were the king of the muted maracas. Here is the Monkees’ video for, Day Dream Believer.
From the excellent album, Express, here is the video of Love and Rockets performing, Yin and Yang and the Flowerpot Man.
Mopey, sullen…dead. Here is the awesome Ian Curtis and Joy Division with their video for the immortal, Love Will Tear Us Apart…sigh.
Better than the Pixies…never, but a pretty good band. Here is the Breeders video for, Cannonball.
Is this the primordial lump that we all came from…the mother lump. It all makes very little sense, except for the part about the passing piranhas – you don’t have to be Fellini to figure that one out. Here is the video for the Presidents of The United States of America performing, Lump.
Canadian legends, Martha and the Muffins with their video for the minor hit, Echo Beach. Great song…awful, awful band name.
Most people have probably heard Gary Numan’s, Cars. Here is a great song and video from his days with Tubeway Army, called, Are Friends Electric. This footage is from the famous British music show, The Old Grey Whistle Test.
