Tales From The Drop Box 2018-16 (Episode 117)


Hopefully you enjoyed your long weekend. I am just getting back from 5 days in Las Vegas attending a legal convention where I had a chance to ponder why I still practice law when I would rather produce episodes of this podcast. I selected the songs for Tales From The Drop Box Episode 117 while listening to a seminar on harassment cases. The topic itself was compelling and a rather serious subject concerning the introduction of #MeToo evidence, i.e. the introduction of other similar incidents as evidence of a pattern or practice of sexual harassment. However, the speaker left me cold and consequently, I looked for a diversion, and you – my faithful listeners – are the beneficiary of that diversion.

Episode 117 is fifteen catchy tracks covering the gambit of the rock pantheon. Okay, not really. The episode is mostly a selection of catchy indie pop and rock, with some punk rock at the end.  And it has a Pavement classic track. That is just how it all worked out by the end of the seminar. A good analogy is that you are getting the sweetness of desert at the beginning, and the meat and potatoes at the end. In short, the perfect way to eat a meal.  I start with a few tracks that I have had kicking about (and playing repeatedly) from April and May of this year but add a couple of new tracks such as the latest from Interpol, Murder By Death, and Personality Cult. In short, your usual solid lineup of music from the fringe.

Here is what you’ll find in Episode #117:

  1. Say Sue Me – “Old Town (Radio Edit)” (Where We Were Together)
  2. Peace – “Power” (Kindness is the New Rock and Roll)
  3. Belly – “Stars Align” (Dove)
  4. The Lulu Raes – “Slow Ride” (Lulu)
  5. Lady Legs – “Bottomless Pit” (Holy Heatwave)
  6. X-Wife – “Monday Tuesday” (X-Wife)
  7. Personality Cult – Brazen” (Personality Cult)
  8. Murder By Death – “New Old City” (The Other Shore)
  9. Interpol – “Complication” (Marauder)
  10. Lydia – “Tourist” (Liquor)
  11. Exit – “See You Around” (Too Little, Too Late)
  12. Turnstile – “Generator” (Time & Space)
  13. The Longest Hall – “Punch A Nazi In The Face” (Don’t Panic!)
  14. Pavement – “Summer Babe (7” version)” (Slanted & Enchanted: Luxe & Redux)
  15. Black Lilys – “Dust of You” (Boxes)

And she’s eating her fingers like they’re just another meal and she waits there in the levee wash mixing cocktails with a plastic-tipped cigar . . . Hey, wake up and smell the lavender of my flower power, technicolor massacre just rolled into your ends dismembered all your friends…
