COLEMAN HELL – 2 Heads
You’ve probably all heard this song a million times by now, but I wanted to share this track because this dude is from Thunder Bay! This song exploded online and was all over steaming music sites and favourited/shared on just about every music blog in exsistence. This lead to him signing with a major label, a shiny music video, and an upcoming full length album. Certainly some cool shit to come out of a small town. But is that even a thing anymore? Has the internet made the world small enough that the chance at international success is actually attainable for anyone with the talent and work ethic?. Maybe. Pay attention to the last shot of the video. An homage to The Graduate! Which if you haven’t seen then how the hell did you get the jokes in Wayne’s World 2?
FOUNTAINS OF WAYNE – Hey Julie
Hot Tracks Friday compadre Jay was over the other day and I had this song on and he was like ‘Hey who is this’? So here it is buddy in case you forgot. AND YES people, these are the Stacy’s Mom guys fuck off! This is a great summer party tune.
CROCODILES – Sunday (Psychic Conversation #9)
One time Jay and I were at a Dum Dum Girls concert. The opening act was Crocodiles whose lead singer is married to Dee Dee, the lead singer of the Dum Dum Girls. So like a couple of teen girls Jay and I bought some stuff from the merch table and went up to Dee Dee to get her to sign it. Only problem begin that she was standing with her Crocodile lead singer husband… Anywho we asked for her to sign our stuff, which she did, and completely ignored him. It was very awkward for everyone involved and after listening to this song all summer realize I should have given him a lot more props. My bad.
