The Misery of Cities

May 30, 2024 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Music

With Classic Kirk

Lost and forgotten music, once heard on the radio - indie, post-punk, shoegaze, new wave, psychedelic - but since lost over time. Lesser known bands that could should have been bigger and deep cuts from bands more familiar.

Just Because We Have Ended This Way

Covering the years 1971 to 1998 this time around, check out the debut single from Sylvia (future founder of Sugarhill Records), tracks from the final albums of LA's The Gun Club and the UK's Razorcuts, as well as just one example of the nearly 300 soundtracks by Piero Piccioni (this one from the 1971 film 'Puppet on a Chain'). Long lost tracks from Gene Clark, Single Gun Theory, and Rain Tree Crow (a one-off band who in the late 70s and early 80s were the group Japan), while a rare known song of Devo gets the live treatment (along with their live opener 'theme' song). Finally, 60's revivalists from an 80's band (Jasmine Minks) as well as a 90's (The Jigsaw Seen) round out the hour.
