    A Mother's Day Mix *

    *  Note these songs have nothing to do with mothers or mother's day; it just happens to be a CD mix (in approximate order) that I made for a road trip undertaken by my wife and I this weekend.  A bit 90s-centric perhaps, but decent driving songs and good intros if you don't know the band. 

    Enjoy.


    Treat Her Right - I Think She Likes Me
    Heartless Basta*ds - Parted Ways
    Concrete Blonde - Mexican Moon
    New Multitudes - Talking Empty Bed Blues
    Lush - De-Luxe
    Supergrass - Alright
    Neutral Milk Hotel - In The Aeroplane Over The Sea
    Guster - Rocketship
    The Posies - Dream All Day
    Thin Lizzy - Whiskey In The Jar
    Pete Yorn - Life On A Chain
    Throwing Muses - Bright Yellow Gun

    Nice! De-Luxe, or anything by LUSH is on virtually every mix tape I own. Maybe a little Morchebba (Slow Down), for a more ambient effect.

    Great band, indeed...

    ...I'm biased but impressed at how well some of the so-called 'shoegazer' music has held up over the years.

    Shoegazer, It's so true(ha). I remember seeing LUSH a few times, and they just stood there, but looked great doing it!!!!!

    I never could understand how a genre was created based on a bands lack of stage presence.

    As for the Mother's Day Mix, admittedly this song does not really fit into Matty's Mix, but it was Mother's Day, so what the h*ll.

    I would like to add a song by Queen

    Loser In The End

    I was thinking this yesterday, too.   If "shoe gazing" was a backlash to a previous era of band antics on stage (was it?), it was a stretch to create a music genre named after it.   Maybe fodder for another thread ... Either way, lots of shoegazer music has proven to be timeless (at least to the fans that are into it).  

    How about these additional songs:

    "Head On" - The Jesus and Mary Chain  (or any JAMC song)
    "Hymn of the Big Wheel"  -- Massive Attack  (pretty good segue from "In the Year 2525")

    I'm not sure how backlash-y or even conscious it was...maybe just a common aesthetic indifference, e.g. pre-grunge, and which then became more of a trope.

    I can think of a few bands whose live act is...shall we say stoic.  Even back to the Velvets, then Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., My Bloody Valentine, et al.

    But again I'm biased...I like a lot of this kind of controlled chaos in music...always on the edge of spinning out.  But when it works, it's positively sublime.

    Ride and Catherine Wheel are other, slightly more obscure personal faves.

    I am pretty sure that I don't know jack about 90's music. It's weird that I seemed to have tuned out an entire decade. Showing my age, I guess.
