Headline: Stone Knives & Bearskins pt2

Greetings & Salutations!

Hoping the mp3 player gets back in time for my trip this the meantime, it's another installment of Mix-Tape Follies!

New Youth (Jan 1991)

Side A
Danielle Dax - The Id Parade
Leonard Cohen - Everybody Knows
Sisters Of Mercy - More
Wall Of Voodoo - They Don't Want Me
Peter Gabriel/KateBush - Don't Give Up
The Fall - Black Monk Theme pt1
Nitzer Ebb - Let Your Body Learn
The Mission UK - Tower Of Strength

Side B
Concrete Blonde - Bloodletting
Steve Vai - The Attitude Song
Prince - Electric Chair
The Police - Mother
He Said - Could You
Devo - Girl You Want
Wire - Kidney Bingoes
The Swans - God Damn The Sun
Faith No More - Falling To Pieces

My first year in college. Lots of new influences from the folks I was living with at the time, most of which have stuck with me (Stan Ridgway is still one of my favorite singer-songwriters, and Wire's 154 among my top albums.) I think for whatever reason, I absorbed their tastes more readily than they did mine, though I think I managed to eventually inspire some grudging admiration for least enough to keep the eye-rolling from being too blatant.

Two-Headed Monster (March 1995)

Side A (vinyl)
Danny Elfman - Happy
Men At Work - Who Can It Be Now
Lindsey Buckingham - Go Insane
Jeff Beck - Cause We've Ended As Lovers
ZZ Top - Stages
Art Of Noise - Paranoimia
Pink Floyd - Biding My Time
Joe Walsh - Life's Been Good

Side B (CD)
Extreme - Decadence Dance
INXS - Heaven Sent
Lyle Lovett - M.O.N.E.Y.
Lenny Kravitz - Are You Gonna Go My Way
Ozzy Osborne - No More Tears
Living Colour - Love Rears Its Ugly Head
Temple Of The Dog - Hunger Strike
Dweezil Zappa - Confessions Of A Deprived Youth
Warren G/Nate Dogg - Regulate

The tracks on Side A came from a collection of LPs I had purchased from a local record shop at 99 cents a piece, during their "we're only gonna sell CDs frow now on" sale (a common enough occurence in the mid-90s) and Side B is comprised of tunes from CDs which had been borrowed from friends, a few of which I ended up buying later. Though I do own quite a bit of hip-hop these days, "Regulate" was the only tune of that genre that ever made it to a mix tape for some reason.
