Music Suggestions/Requests

Postby zorro sings » Mon Feb 21, 2005 11:38 am

Club Verboten in a shameless promotion of our retro avant-garde dance nights, would like to solicit some song suggestions/requests from the eplaya community at large.We will be coming back with old favorites Kraftwerk Night and Depeche Mode Nacht Vier(das ende).Up in the air is an encore for UK Glam Rock.These play lists are pretty well established but chime in if you would like.
New for this year and ones we would really like some input on are(In our first ever nod to The Project theme)"Too Much to Dream- ThePsychedelic 60's" and Punk/Post Punk.
Psych 60's we have in mind Psych/Garage bands such as Electric Prunes,Chocolate Watch Band,13th Floor Elevator,Bubble Puppy,Count 5,Seeds,(early)Pink Floyd,Strawberry Alarm Clock etc etc.
Punk/Post Punk is being envisioned as taking in the years 1977-1982.Talking Heads,Clash,Ramones,Elvis Costello.Stuff like that.
Finally we are soliciting someone who would like to dj a 90's night.Much too busy listening to electronica to pay much attention to the commercial production of that decade.Remember Blur and Oasis but that is about it.Thanks for your help and see you on The Playa.Hopefully at our regular spot of 9:00 and Esplanade.

I'm not sure if any of these fit in (and I might get trashed for being too mainstream), but I've been partial to Velvet Underground (Loaded), early Frank Zappa (Freak Out), and live Quicksilver Messenger Service (Happy Trails).

When the going gets weird, the weird fill their bathtubs with brightly colored machine parts.

It's always good to get in the late 60's funk when you can: Temptations (Psychedelic Shack, Don't Let the Jones Get You Down, Cloud Nine, I'm Losing You), Sly and the Family Stone (I Wanna Take You Higher, Thankyouforlettinmebemyseff, Dance to the Music), etc.

OK now we are getting somewhere.Thanks for the input Robotland and Waltsnipe.
FREEBIRD!!!! reminds me of a camp a few years ago that played it often.Camp Skynyrd.I think it was called.I think I also remember they had an unforgetable tag line,"An island of ignorance in a sea of enlightenment".Or something like that.

Um. Slade. Dang I'm rusty on them, but they were my faves at one point. Gary Glitter. And t-rex.

"Dirty Water" was that the Standells? Great song. "Crimson and Clover" too much? Pictures of Matchstickmen by the Status Quo? Would you do "Listen to the Flower People" or would that just wreck it? "Piggy in the Middle"? Scary thing is I still have some of that vinyl (80s reprints mostly) but I'm in no mental space to deal with that.

OK thanks.Images of Matchstickmen a certainty.Funny that Status Quo is probably known only for that in this country.They had a long run in the UK and Australia with solid rock numbers.Listen to the Flower People?Wasn't that Spinal Tap?Standels is correct and you got it.
I too always assocaited Slade with the Glam Rock scene.However played "Gud'by to Jane" last year and cleared the room out.Not sure if we will go there again.

A little Traffic would be nice "Dear Mr. Fantasy" is a pretty good tune.

Perhaps Tubular Bells?

Take a listen to the last track on The Beatles album "Revolver"... damn trippy stuff... (don't remember the name of the song, sorry)

I might be up for a 45 minute set on your 90's night, depending on what night it'll be on. I've got goth/industrial/punk dj commitments at Spikes' Vampire Bar this year. If I can squeeze in the time, I can burn a 45 minute set.

Yes, "Flower People" was Tap and "Piggy in the Middle" was the Rutles. So niether would be authentic. So it was a sort of question about how bendy your rules were.

I don't know the difference between "glitter" and "glam" I suppose. I love Slade. I had the (mis?)fortune of spending a year in England in 72/73 and watching "Top of hte Pops" when all that was going on (in between Little Jimmy Osmond) and I have to say that Gary Glitter entering the stage on a motorcycle, wearing gold lame and taaaaaaaaalll platform boots and singing "Leader of the Gang" ("I'm the man who put the bang in gang"--How did he get away with that?) is almost a primal memory for me. I like the kind of trashy stuff, and the only one I can know say is a serious musicain would be Bolan, but it just gets me in the gut.

Just a note of thanks once again, Zorro, for Glam Rock Night last year. I look forward to Post Punk Night with great relish.

Mr.Jellyfish has failed to note that he will be our very first"Special Guest DJ".Sharing the chores with Playboy DJ No he has promised,and will be held in strict account,to provide nothing but the choicest dance tunes circa 1977-1983.

I guess my collection is more embarrassing than I thought, Robotland. I've got plenty of Shriekback, Elvis Costello, Wire, Bowie, Blondie, Joe Jackson, Psychadelic Furs, Wall of Voodoo, Tears for Fear.

Would you be interested in snail mailing me a burned CD so I can check those bands you mentioned out? I may remember some of the tunes.

Zorro Sings has coached me on songs that we love but are also "room cleaners". I want to get as completely avant garde as possible, but if it borders on ending the party, I'll kill it and fade up The Gogo's because I have no personal integrity. :lol:

Postby waltsnipe » Fri Mar 25, 2005 8:37 am

If you can handle the horns and deep fuzz bass, there's always "Give It Everything You've Got" by Edgar Winter and the White Trash Review. Would fit in nicely with Tony Joe White's "Polk Salad Annie."

What a shame that they only got out the two albums....(before Stan Ridgeway left, that is....they were never the same afterwards.)
Sadly, Mr. J-Fish, I no longer have them in ANY form, except for wide-scattered cassette artifacts. I CAN burn you some pretty off-the-wall stuff from my disc collection though.....Martin Denny, Blue Man Group, Phillip Glass, Frank Black, Cake, and many others. I ran a used-and-new RECORD store in Ann Arbor back in the 80's, and got exposed to all kinds of great stuff, but it's damned hard to be back out on the streets without the ability to open and listen to ANYTHING and call it "research"....Sure, you can hear bits of things online, but it's never the radio cuts that I really dig, man.

Yeah, where's was our Ipod then? I guess there is a supreme court decision coming up regarding downloading copywrited music on the internet for free. The RIAA is salivating.

Got to get this back on track.Thanks Warp but not sure you bothered to read the opening post.Not real sure where Asian fusion or a trance DJ fits in to a Psych 60's or Post Punk dance.

Anything that has cowbells is good. Ya gotta have more cowbell.

Actually I want to see some Happy Hardcore out there or more Vocal Trance. But the odds of me getting that without doing it myself are the same as someone building a snowman at the base of the man this year. It thereotically could happen but most likely won't.

Ditto that, Moishe! I was the freak in the jacket of mirrors with the Marc Bolin wig. Did we strut or wot?

What a magical, unforgetable, sparkling-perfect night. If we do it again I want glitter on the inside of my eyelids!
