High in the Middle and Round on the Ends.....

So, this is a great day in Ohio...two days after the crushing at the poll given to the worst attack on working men and women ever proposed.....AND as a State Employee, I'm sitting here enjoying a paid day off for Veterans Day (and I am not a, to all of you, thank you for your service to our country)....but this is about thanking the voters of OHIO, and I thought I'd do so with some good tunes from the great Buckeye State. Problem#1: There really hasn't been a lot of good stuff once you think about it. I've already put up he best Afghan Whigs album ("Gentlemen") so what to do? Think this would be a good spot for Cleveland's Dead Boy.....honestly, fairly awful on record, this live set shows how ferocious they could be onstage.....this set highlights ALL their best tracks and is levels above their studio work:

NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD BOYS-01 Detention Home/02 3rd Generation Nation/03 All this and More/04 Caught With the Meat In Your Mouth/05 Tell Me/06 Catholic Boy/07 Won't Look Back/08 Ain't It Fun/09 What Love Is/10 Ain't Nothin' To Do/11 I Need Lunch/12 Son of Sam/13 Sonic Reducer

Next up some long forgotten Devo, their classic debut "Are We Not Men?". Delightfully dated today, you probably haven't listened to it in 20 years.....Way Cool "New Wave" stuff, and I threw some bonus tracks on just cause I'm such a cool guy

ARE WE NOT MEN? WE ARE DEVO-01 Uncontrollable Urge/02 Satisfaction (Can't Get No)/03 Praying Hands /04 Space Junk/05 Mongoloid/06 Jocko Homo/07 Too Much Paranoias/08 Gut Feeling/Slap Your Mammy/09 Come Back Jonee/10 Sloppy (I Saw My Baby Gettin')/11 Shrivel Up/BONUS TRACKS 12/Uncontrollable Urge (Live)/13 Whip it/14 Are You Experienced?/15 Head Like a Hole/16 Whip It (DJ 7UP Remix)

Now I venture back to my High School days, for this VERY cool radio broadcast of Rick Derringer at the Whiskey A Go Go.....Can't recall where I found this one, but it's Rick on a very good night, a total high-energy raved-up set....enjoy

RICK DERRINGER WHISKEY A GO GO 1977-01 Radio Intro/02 Still Alive and Well/03 Let Me In/04 Teenage Love Affair/05 Sittin' By The Pool/06 One Eyed Jack/07 Sailor/08 Beyond the Universe/09 Rock N Roll Hoochie Koo/10 Roll With Me/11 Rebel Rebel/12 Keep On Makin' Love/13 Let's Make It/14 Radio Outro

LINKS IN COMMENTS SECTION ....Again, THANKS to my fellow Buckeyes for keeping OHIO as a state in which the voices of hard-working men and women mean something and can and did affect the future of our state. IN SOLIDARITY!
