Echo Beach is a really great song, so it's included two times!! Anyways, I like your list, but after I've found so much new stuff on this blog and partly going out of my head, my mutant sounds list would at least include: Art Objects, Missing Presumed Dead and also some of that great DiY Singles Stuff. You are doing a fabulous thing here, thanx a lot! I will soon digitalize some obscure stuff that I've found in my vinyl collection (do you know Oliver-Standing Stone from UK, 1976 for example?) and tell you where to find it after I've uploaded it. Cheers, alex

My favorite Martha and The Muffins song is "Dansepark". It's definitely one of my favorite new wave pop song of the 80s period. I also like the cheap cool 80s video for "Dansepark" too, you can see it at YouTube:

I think someone also has the "echo park" video on YouTube but you probably already saw that one.

When I was younger I use to always prefer The Specials first album more than their second album. But now I kind of prefer the second album "More Specials" because on that album Jerry Dammers did a lot of original things that the fans and the public obviously did not fully understand.

"Action, Time, and Vision" is definitely the best song that Alternative TV made. I only wish the albums they made would have featured more songs like that one. Many of the experimental things that ATV tired were really boring and not executed well on LP which to me always made them an overrated band. Still ATV's album cover is still one the best looking album covers of all time to me, so simple and cool looking.
The album cover alone made me never give away my LP of it.

Well, at least I know the next playlist I will attempt to compile. I shant opine until I am more familiar with these. But, you're recommendations have always been spot-on.

Thanks for the roadmap!

Great list. I feel that "Felt" should be in there, someplace though

zotenschmied said...

at least somebody who knows sad lovers and giants.

Teenybob said...

You forgot Oops I did it again by Britney Spears. That's the best song ever.

Keef said...

Everything is great except Radiohead. I wouldn't turn a firehose on them if they were on fire.

vco said...

Nice list

I would have included Dalek I's, "A Suicide" from their 'Kumpass' album

some kind of surprise to see that you also enjoy the more common alternative things on earth although they sometimes make ME want to grab back to my abba stuff - all great things remain on the edge of a scale - so thank you for all the eye-opener music you've been posting
