Mid-80s Alt. Fest

On the drive home, WZBC played, in succession:
  • The Chills, “Pink Frost”
  • Robert Wyatt, “Shipbuilding” (written by Elvis Costello)
  • Cabaret Voltaire, “Nag Nag Nag”
  • Cocteau Twins, “Sugar Hiccough”
Man, those were the days, when “alternative” music was real alternative music. blah blah blah grumble grumble kids these days…

And today I was discovering that eMusic has all the works of Mojo Nixon & Skid Roper, so I downloaded & listened to "Jesus At McDonald's", "Mushroom Maniac", "Moanin' With Yo Momma", "Where The Hell's My Money" ... Man, that took me back to college days! (Mojo & Skid actually played a couple of parties at Caltech while I was there.)

Re: If you don't have Mojo Nixon
I interviewed Mojo on college radio in the mid 80s. He mooned me on the air. Good thing it was radio.

Darn, the official Dimmer web site does not appear to be accessible at the moment ! But I like what he says about his influences.

Well. That means that they might have pulled it. Dimmer was signed to Sony NZ in the hopes of being able to get a worldwide release, but it never came.

Honestly the best thing I have heard in years.
