Monday Mixteen: 1/7/2019

Monday Mixteen 20180107

Happy new year to all my GOBL readers.  It’s time for the first Monday Mixteen of 2019.  It feels like it should be an opportunity to explore the future of new music.  I learned, however, that January 7th is Old Rock Day.  It only seems appropriate that we examine some old rock.  The term old is rather subjective, but I’m going to say that any song that is old enough to legally viewed as an adult (18) is an old song.  So here’s our little trip down memory lane…

  1. Pop Poppins, “I Wanna Be Your Lover”
  2. Course of Empire, “Coming of the Century”
  3. Captain Audio, “Star”
  4. Butthole Surfers, “Human Cannonball”
  5. Nervebreakers, “My Girlfriend Is a Rock”
  6. Slobberbone, “Barrel Chested”
  7. Poi Dog Pondering, “Jack Ass Ginger”
  8. centro-matic, “The Massacre Went Well”
  9. Tripping Daisy, “Blown Away”
  10. Adam’s Farm, “Was Wet”
  11. Old 97’s, “Doreen”
  12. Doosu, “Louisiana House Fire, Mid 1950’s”
  13. Bloodrock, “Double Cross”
  14. Brutal Juice, “Eastern Cat”
  15. Spot, “Moon June Spoon”
  16. The Deathray Davies, “Clever Found a Name”

So there you go, The Ghost’s celebration of Old Rock Day.  Wait, Old Rock Day is a celebration of ancient stones and not music?  Oh great, NOW you tell me.

  • Monday Mixteen: 8/26/19 This has been a fabulous weekend for The Ghost. I got to celebrate my birthday weekend with family and friends, and of course, I got to see some great live music courtesy of Pleasant Grove. Me thinks The Ghost has been partied out, however, so there will be no commentary from me today. Instead, I [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 7/22/19 Politics are an area that I’ve always been reluctant to discuss on the blog.  After all, this is a music blog, not a political one.  With the level of vitriol being spread in our country right now, however, I feel that I cannot continue to stay silent.  The level of racism and hate being spouted [...]
  • Monday Mixteen: 7/1/19 So you all know that July 4th is Independence Day, which marks the anniversary of the U.S. declaring itself its own country.  I bet you didn’t know, however, that July 4th is National Country Music Day.  It seems appropriate, as I’m not sure there’s a musical style that’s as distinctively American is Country.  In honor [...]
  • The Ghostified Gathering For a week or so, Festify was all the rage on social media. It was an app that created fictitious festival lineups based on one’s Spotify listening habits. One could create a lineup based on the most listened to artists over the course of a month, six months, or one’s entire time on Spotify. The [...]
