Yup. Most people don't even know them as The Beat at all.

I was listening to Squeeze earlier today, one of their lesser-loved later albums but the only one whose concert I actually went to (Greek Theater, Berkeley, 1986) - Cosi Fan Tutti Frutti. Over produced, over orchestrated, and very un-Squeeze. But I love it. Memories, I guess.

The HOOTERS opened for them. That I remember. Blech. I ate at Blondie's pizza and bought a Repo Man "Let's Do Crimes" t-shirt at Rasputin Records. Can't remember my drivers license number that I've had for 24 years but I remember that shit. Wtf.

I know them as the Beat, they will always be the beat. The american version can go break a guitar string.

NPR is a great source for the blues on Sunday, history of songs and artists.

Nothing to be ashamed of, I find myself having out of body experiences back to the 80's too. Music usually is the culpret, too. Driving to school listening to a song, an old friend, what ifs...
Wow, I never thought 40 would catch me! Holy crap, it'll be 41 in July, damn, time to put in a Triumph cd.

Same here. I just hit 40 last month. The HORROR.

My problem was that I'm on my HS reunion committee and organizing our 20-year a few years ago, I was in charge of gathering all the music. So I have a STUPID amount of 80s stuff on my iPod now...like 19 hours worth. Put my iTunes on DJ shuffle and I'm just bombarded with it!

Word Up!

Since we're talking music and ipods & the like...how does everyone feel about using your earbuds while scooting?
I've always like to hear as much going on around me as possible. What's the consensus?
BTW creth95, mine is loaded with 80's too. I'm a graduate from HS 1986.

For some reason I've always thought it was illegal in CA, but regardless, I don't want to block out the sounds of the world around me. People drive crazy and I want to hear them coming if possible...bad enough I've already got the wind blasting past my helmet.

This week is pretty much 24/7 Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, the new Phoenix album. So, so good! Produced by Philippe Zdar of Cassius no less! Highly recommended.

Other big ones this week are A-Trak's Infinity + 1 mixtape, Fat Jon's Repaint Tomorrow, Passion Pit's Manners, and a mixtape I made recently from all the old Roulé Records 12" releases because I was on an old-school French house kick.
