2009: Noah and The Cramps
Ok people listen up: is December 29h, midnightâ€™s approaching and we havenâ€™t decided yet which song will end up being our last post of 2009. You know how it is: you plan to work all night but then wine uncorks itself, fake moustaches appear [ and piÃ±ata hats ] and eventually zig-zag is the new A-to-B; so, in honor of this pleasant dilemma of too much music to share, and too many guests to entertain, the according tic-tac-toe solution: a tie. You see, some of us Gophers have the idea of sharing timeless songs of psychobilly madness [ with microphone deepthroating! ], while others believe that above all, 2009 is for the twothousandandniners [ bureaucrat talking! ]. Yes, yes, we could have solved this in a drinking spree and indeed some town was painted red, but, uh, conundrums and uh, THE SONGS:
For those of you out there who believe 2010 will be the year of having cojones:
The Cramps â€“ Tie It Up [ 1980 ]
And for those of you who believe that 2009 was a nice year to save some of that for the next one:
Noah and the Whale â€“ Blue Skies [ 2009 ]
We love both songs, weâ€™re sure neither of their composers thought theyâ€™ll end up together in anything, we’ll miss Lux Interior from The Cramps who died on February of this year and we welcome very warmly the Noah-Whales to our you-make-things-feel-fuzzy collection, and yes, we do know the band has been around since 2006, mind you.
And so in this beautiful, chaotic, democratic potlach the 2009 in music arrives to a hurried stop. The Cramps photo is by Jeff Good and the Noah and the Whale from their MySpace, thanks-a-plenty for your time and hundreds [ thousands! ] of clicks in hour beloved music player this year; nevertheless, please donâ€™t take our cutlery home with you.
And no, you canâ€™t sleep here either, this is magazine, not a hostel. Happy 2010.
