Iggy Pop and the Boys... or Paul's Power

Since the summer, I've been whipping a new(er) car with a big advantage over my old car. A tape deck. I'm sure there are folks out there who think a tape deck would be a step down from a mp3/CD player, but really, that's balderdash. Having a thought out mix CD is always nice, and plugging in your iPod is handy (if it hasn't been stolen yet), but there's a certain quality to a homemade tape that just can't be beat.

Recently a friend gave me a tape that I thought deserved special mention on here. Side A of the tape, Paul's Boutique by the Beastie Boys.



see the scenic LES corner, mere blocks from ABC No Rio!


Flip to side B, and it's Raw Power by Iggy and the Stooges.



pre James Mecklenberg days


Sonically, yeah, the albums are pretty different. I wouldn't have expected them to go together very well. It's such a great combination though. Even though they approach it very differently, both albums have a strong element of chaos that helps them vibe together, and the entire package makes for a great driving tape.


The epic 9 song mega track that closes out the album. My favorite part is the third song, "Stop That Train". Not only is the beat funky as hell, but there's a great sample of Keith and Tex's song, "Stop That Train", that vocalist/DJ Scotty recorded a singjay version of for the The Harder They Come soundtrack.



The first Stooges track to come blistering out after the automatically tape flipping. Already a great start to an album, now an even better start to the album. It makes me drive recklessly.




Speaking of the cover of Paul's boutique, if you're in the vicinity on November 24, you should check out Street Smart Cyclist at ABC. Go to their myspace and download the songs yourself.

After I initially commented I appear to have clicked

Perhaps there is an easy method you are able to remove me from that service?
Thank you!

Most of the ingredients in Vig - RX Plus aid in
increasing the flow of blood to the penile area. Just in case you were wondering Damiana has been
used in Central and South America since the days of the
Mayans as a powerful aphrodisiac. This problem occurs due to malfunction of body parts or activities, some ailments, with growing age etc.

Mariah also holds the distinction of being the only female vocalist who has had three singles debut at the number one position.
From suspense heightening horror to sweeping orchestral movements popularised by epic adventure films to classic Broadway sounds, music fills our collective consciousness every bit as much as the films they're composed for. Akon does well in R&B singer, songwriter, and record producer; he also sings in Senegalese.

I'm very into 80s new wave and italo and came across this sample. Tron's original soundtrack by Wendy Carlos never left an impression with me either
even being a film score and electronica fanatic. She wrote songs for other musical groups,
for instance The Pussycat Dolls, New Kids on the Block and
for Britney Spears.
