Morrissey. well… i think most people know who he is. he was in the smiths, ya know. and even reel big fish have covered his songs (here’s proof), so you know he must be at least as well known as ah-ha.
here’s a video. look how fucking ROCKABILLY these guys are. i usually HATE rockabilly guys, but i LOVE these babies. hey! nobody’s perfect.
andy visser (of floodwater records fame) and i were supposed to trade mixtapes about SIX months ago. i’m sure he got his finished shortly after the pact, but i, on the other hand, still haven’t completed the project.
like so many other things i start, i’ve gotten right to the very end, but have yet to make the final leap over the finish line. so… in a pathetic attempt to continue my procrastination, but still complete the mix, i’m going to post all the tracks on this blog.
the only thing linking these tracks to one another, and allowing them to make sense with each other, is that they’re songs that i believe mr. visser might not have heard, but would enjoy.
oh yeah… it’s a double disk mix, and i forgot the track list, so… put ’em together however you like! (ugh. sorry.)
The Smiths – “A Rush and a Push and the Land Is Ours”
this artist, the smiths, well… i’m sure everyone knows about them, so i won’t even bother writing one single little thing. they’re good. maybe greg will write some articles about them after he finishes his series about primal scream…
