Five Songs, 9/4/2022

Mary Wells, "My Guy"

We've had this one before.

The Magnetic Fields, "I'm Sorry I Love You"

One of the more memorable tunes from 69 Love Songs, probably due to the vocals, but I do like the guitar part on it as well.

Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard, "Slave Moon"

Ah, Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard. Say it soft, and it's almost like praying. Say it loud, and there's stoner metal playing. Anyway, here's ten minutes of fuzz, enjoy!

Melvins, "Billy Fish"

Nude With Boots is from the double-duo years, when King Buzzo and Dale Crover teamed up with Big Business for a few records. This is one of the most classic rock records that they band ever made, which makes it comparatively easy listening for them. The sort of thing you can throw on and bump in the car with the windows down without alienating the whole neighborhood.

Skrew, "Gemini"

Very important, this is a different band than Skrewdriver, the Nazi punk band. Skrew started out as industrial metal, very much in the vein of Ministry. Indeed, Al Jourgensen produced this record, Burning in Water, Drowning in Flame. When it came out, I was still into industrial, so I went for it. It turned out to be one of the records that kind of knocked me loose. It just did nothing for me at all, and I drifted away from the genre, figuring that if this record (which was quite popular among fans of industrial) didn't do it for me, maybe I should find other stuff.

Ministry, "Dead Guy"

Oh, come on, that's a bit on the nose.

This kind of has a nice groove to it.
