Prepare for a double Track Of The Day with NIGHT BEATS . The three 13th Floor Elevators’ bastard grandchildren from Seattle via Texas are about to mess up the world with their 3rd album – WHO SOLD MY GENERATION – co-produced with Robert Levon Bean from Black Rebel Motorcycle Club


The LP is out next Friday via Heavenly Records . Last week single NO COPS was released.
Pure NIGHT BEATS. Nasty psych injected rhythm & blues tumult. Outlaw rock & roll with a nasty swagger to blow all evil cops off this troubled planet. Here’s the hammer…

B-side VULTURES was written & recorded by the band and Bean for some late fun. Smoking blues fun it is. A slow moving, devilish serpent creeping slowly in your system. Here’s the bitch…

It’s not the same, not the same, not the same old sound yeah
You used to ignore but you had to get closer yeah
I know there’s something in the soul of a vulture see,
Inside the glove is the hand that will hold you
Whisper words as you’re close to another
Raise your voice stand at your altar
It’s not the song that stops,
It’s just the devil’s watch, hypnotized by the side of a mountain
Blinded by the walls on the side of the story,
burnin’ in your eyes with a neon glory
It’s not the same not the same not the same old way yeah
You used to ignore but you moved from the summer yeah
I know there’s something in the soul of a vulture’s mouth
Inside the glove is the hand that’ll take you out
You have been sold and bought,
lost in a chinese market in the year of the cock with a rodent
wishin’ to the stars when you’re down on the bottom,
even when you’re good you just think your rotten,
swearin’ to your cause, I don’t think you’re a martyr,
even for a God I don’t think you’d applaud
I know it’s right I know its cold, I know its closer to you
I know it’s right I know its cold, I know its closer to you my love,
and I’d hate for you, to turn me around

THE GUN CLUB – ‘Lucky Jim’ – Dark and Dolorous…

TrackNightVersie2 - kopie

Jeffrey Lee Pierce
mad blues man at heart
Tortured soul singing
sad stories like the
one about ‘Lucky Jim’
Probably a misfit too
The Gun Club was
born to die in pain
just like JLP did
Too much, Too soon…

The rain has arrived at last
For which we had waited
The hawkers have packed up their stands
Nothing to be traded

The Soviets beside the Quay
Run back to the freighter
The terrace of the Rex Hotel
Is closed by the waiters

We need you, oh Lucky Jim
Where have you gone, oh Lucky Jim?

Your mistress has left her home
Gone back to the dances
The smoking dens are starting up
For life’s own enhancing

Nobody goes to the war
Since there’s none to go to
We just sit around the cafe bars
We sit waiting for you

We need you, oh Lucky Jim
Where have you gone, oh Lucky Jim?

Why did you ever go up north?
It is not for you
They’ll strip your little weak heart clean
Then what will you do

The Australians in the Bunny Bar
Are waiting your return
Everyone wants a piece of you
A piece of you to burn

We need you, oh Lucky Jim
Where have you gone, oh Lucky Jim?
We miss you here, oh Lucky Jim

From the same titled and last Gun Club album (1994)

NEW ORDER Remixed by COLD CAVE – Monumental…


COLD CAVE is Los Angeles based Wesley Eisold‘s darkwave project. He just shared a cover of classic NEW ORDER highlight YOUR SILENT FACE from their magnificently atmospheric 1983 ‘Power, Corruption & Lies’ album. Wesley Eisold explains his love for the Manchester legends: “For me personally, New Order gave me the courage to dive in to creating music electronically and to sing as a punk who knew very little about electronics or singing, just
as they did 30 some years ago. Heavy hearted and carefree at the same time.”
Here’s the remix. Dark & light at the same time. Night & day. Still a big, mesmerizing tune after
all these years. Monumental sentiment…

NOEL GALLAGHER – All You Need Is A Beatles Song…

TrackNightVersie2 - kopie

all he needs is
a Beatle song…
preferably a
John Lennon one
like this sad
beauty about not
being allowed to
show your emotions
when your famous!
Captivating confession…

Here I stand with head in hand
I Turn my face to the wall
If she’s gone I can’t go on
Feeling two foot small
Everywhere people stare
each and every day
I can hear them laugh at me
And I hear them say

Hey you’ve got to hide your love away
Hey you’ve got to hide your love away

How can I even try?
I can never win
Seeing them, hearing them
In the state I’m in
How could she say to me
Love will find a way?
Gather round all you clowns
Let me hear you say

Hey you’ve got to hide your love away
Hey you’ve got to hide your love away

Big mouth strikes again…

John Lennon and John Lennon acoording to Noel Gallagher

ARCTIC MONKEYS ! Debut Album Is 10…



Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not
A once in a lifetime achievement by four Sheffield teenagers
A self-made statue without help of the greedy music industry
A ‘my generation’ statement, signed by street poet Alex Turner
Brilliant lyricist. Brilliant storyteller. And, yes, cool as fuck…
And that sound! Hyperkinetic funk punk craziness ! Knockout!

It still smells like teen spirit today. Honest. Untouchable.
Like a virgin. Before fame, fashion, America & a quiff.
Released 23 January 2006 – 10 years ago – get the cake!


Now go and steal your neighbour’s dancing shoes and go lunatic like it’s 2006 again…
