|May 28, 2012 | Found Sounds, Songoftheday
I heard this song the other day, which I had not heard nor even thought about since the mid-1980s, and it brought a distinct period of time rushing back. We left punk behind, rejected it, and devoured the stuff we’d missed, everything from Sabbath and Zeppelin ( easily got, then, along with stacks of Ventures LPs, at the thrift store ) to Stooges, MC5, Velvets, to goth, the coolest part of which was pretty much over but which lead naturally to music darker than anything heard previously : Neubauten, Foetus, Bad Seeds, Test Dept., Coil.
This was an end-of-the-night jam. Lights out, leather jacket for a pillow. Cold.
