Way Back Whensday

What we were listening to…

5 years ago

10 years ago

20 years ago (everything in alt-rock today has been touched by this)



I prefer the UK Surf Mix of this next one, but liked the fan-made video

This one has ‘Dead’ first, then ‘I Bleed’

Was there ever such a cheery-sounding tune about such a rough topic?

See above for ‘Dead’

Recent performance, but shows how tight they were when getting back together.

From the same set as above. I really like this one.



Fan-made.

If there can be only one, this is my fave.

Hmm…I may have to make a fan-made video for this one.

No mixtape today. Had some firewall troubles at work last night so didn’t get the time to mix it up.

Way Back Whensday

Way Back Whensday

What we were listening to…

5 years ago (this album is etched into my musical memory)

10 years ago (i’m a day early for this one…but man, we went to see this in the theater and were completely blown away – fully unaware of what were getting into – if i recall it was marketed in a rather deceptive way)

20 years ago (couple days early for this one too, but wow, ian astbury kinda looks like gary busey in a long black wig)
