Do The Trash Can
by Jon Spencer
(9 plays) | (0 fans)

"Do the Trash Can," is the first offering off Jon Spencer's debut solo album, Spencer Sings the Hits!, set to arrive early this fall via In the Red Records. "Nothing like digging the gas tank from an old Chevy out of a Michigan junkyard snow bank in January," Spencer recalled. "Junkyard owner kept asking me if the metal was for a school project, but as a bluegrass player he could understand the possible use for a recording session."

Velvet Noose
by Thunderpussy
(13 plays) | (0 fans)

Guitarist Whitney Petty said the name Thunderpussy has taken the Seattle-based band all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. “The Supreme Court doesn’t think that we should be able to trademark Thunderpussy because. . . [it’s] scandalous [and] immoral," she said. "We were riding the coattails of The Slants in Portland. . . It’s an all-Asian-American band that got a letter saying that they were disparaging and scandalous. They actually fought for many years, and they won their case. So we thought we were going to win our case. But that one word difference — they are disparaging, we’re immoral. We are back in the pile. So now we are waiting.”

Crazy On You
by Heart

Happy birthday to Ann Wilson! This was Heart's first single. They were based in Vancouver at the time. According to the liner notes for one of their greatest hits albums, they moved to Vancouver when some of the male members of the band would have been subject to the draft in the Vietnam War. They returned to Seattle when there was no longer a threat of them being called up in the draft.

School (Live)
by Nirvana
(1 play) | (0 fans)

Sub Pop #834 In lieu of bonus tracks and demos like a typical deluxe edition affair, Sub Pop opted to include a second disc featuring a full Nirvana performance at Portland’s Pine Street Theatre on Feb. 9, 1990. It’s a rare snapshot of the band before they’d become a cultural force, but you can feel what the band would become in this freewheeling, walloping performance.

Subterranean Homesick Blues
by Bob Dylan

John Lennon was apparently so captivated by this song, he worried he would never be able to write anything that could compete with it.

Jimi Hendrix: "All those people who don't like Bob Dylan's songs should read his lyrics. They are filled with the joys and sadness of life. I am as Dylan, none of us can sing normally. Sometimes, I play Dylan's songs and they are so much like me that it seems to me that I wrote them. I have the feeling that Watchtower is a song I could have come up with, but I'm sure I would never have finished it. Thinking about Dylan, I often consider that I'd never be able to write the words he manages to come up with, but I'd like him to help me, because I have loads of songs I can't finish. I just lay a few words on the paper, and I just can't go forward. But now things are getting better, I'm a bit more self-confident."

Testify quotes the party slogan for the Oceania government in the book 1984: "Who controls the past, controls the future. Who controls the present, controls the past."
