BAD BRAINS BAD BRAINS! ROCKNROLLROCKNROLL!
(AKA, phoning it in because life is hectic)
Jeff Buckley - I Against I (Acoustic, Radio performance) - Okay, so this is just a random rarity of Jeff Buckley fucking around in a radio studio with an Acoustic guitar, but he's covering one of the greatest punk songs ever penned, and it finds Buckley going so far out of his range, and stumbling to get it together so desperately, that it manages to be worth a listen.
For the hell of it, here's the original track.

The Nein - Handout - Today's other selection is by a band called the Nein and comes from TTIKTDA reader Jen who writes: Song's called Handout and I think it's great. Kind of a cross between latter-day Archers of Loaf and current electro-stuff. And while that description is halfway decent, I'd go for a comparison to Les Savy Fav more than anyone else out there right now. Fantastic stuff.
And Hey Readers: Keep it coming! If you're not seeing your submissions posted here, it's not because I'm not liking them, it's because I'm buried under such a pile that I'm treading water just to sort through it all, and some nights, I just end up going to what i've got instead. It has nothing to do with your taste sucking, because ti doesn't. It has to do with me being a lousy email-reciever/responder.

Also: I'm trying something a little new w/ the MP3 links tonight to try to foil people using wget to scrape the mp3's from this site and generally being leeches about it. I'm sorry to those of you who read this blog and are also using wget to save time, and I'm also sorry to those of you who this inconveniences with a referrer link. If anybody has any other suggestions, keeping in mind I'm hosted on blogspot, let me know. And if this is causing anyone any problems, let me know.
If you really must aggregate mp3 blogs to save time, please don't use wget. Use RSS. Mp3blogs.org has done a very nice job of consolidating a whole bunch of us for your reading and timesaving pleasure.
