Ye Olde Fridaye Magickal Poope Chu/Shootery and Musickal Reviewe

1. She Flies So High-My Drug Hell

English never-beens retro, like Brian Jonestown Massacre retro, but better. You probably don’t remember their non-hit sad sack classic “Girl at the Bus Stop” from an MGD ad in the 90’s. From This is My Drug Hell. Song has an end-of-record-side outro.

2. Heart +Soul-Black Rebel Motorcycle Club


3. It’s Not Easy-The Rolling Stones
From 1966’s Aftermath, a very 60’s Stones song. Pretty good, if you like the Stones, who remain awesome regardless of dangeral drummer fascists attacking Charlie Watts for being a robot.

4. Jump-Van Halen
It’s not “Panama” but what is? Still, what can I say, David Lee Roth was both an obvious superstar but in hindsight, a head-scratcher. Most effective rock hit parade synth since The Who’s “Won’t Get Fooled Again.”

5. Fallen-Mr. Airplane Man
Constantly listen-able messy electric blues from Boston two-piece.

6. The Dark Of The Matinee-Franz Ferdinand
I find I don’t like Franz Ferdinand, save for their absolutely unstoppable monster opening singles. I mean they are OK, I guess, but I never feel like playing them. Angular, arch britpop.

7. Coming up Roses-Curve
90’s dance-gazers returned with Come Clean in 2001 or so (?), and this is one of the better tracks from a decent album (if you are a fan).

8. Blue Skies-BT (featuring Tori Amos)
Contrary to hipster opinion, trance-cheezer+confessional pianista equals dance floor awesome. For those grandparents that remember when this was a club track.

9. Just Call Me Joe-Sinéad O’Connor
I wonder when Sinead O’Connor is going to get any credit for releasing two totally monster albums at the age of 21 and 24. I wish she had kicked Sinatra in HIS ass. The ultimate anti-Catholic in an appearance on SNL, Sinead is not rumored to be changing her name to Shakespeare’s Sister so she can wail on more popery.

10. Hard On for Jesus-Dandy Warhols

Well, nice little psych rave-up from the the Dandys. Title kind of sounds offensive, I think we should be fired. Let’s take a closer look at the lyrics.

Oh yeah, Jesus
You got me going.
And I know, just like I know,
no way of knowing.

I gotta have faith,
I gotta believe
that the lord of lords and
the king of kings
come and set me free.


Well, that’s not so bad, is it? Can we handle a little self-expression in our Poop Shoot?

  • You know what the problem with Franz Ferdinand is? They’re only really good when you put the CD in your car stereo and drive for at least 45 minutes. Then, suddenly, they are really good.

  • Blue Skies-BT (featuring Tori Amos)

    This settles it, PP. You are so not heteronormative.

  • What about Jump by Van HAlen? COME ON!

  • No. I’m sorry. You’re still gay as far as I’m concerned. I’m so gonna beat up Geenie Cola over you… I WILL HAVE YOUR *SS!!!

  • That’s not very nice, teh. I’m like a top that only goes for women. I know pretty weird for gay. Like my friend says, I’m clearly a recombinant. Besides does the masthead say “Three Bulls!” or “Republic of Dogs”? QED!

  • I totally second that thing about Sinead. I got into her first album, and the secondwas such a classic.

    I saw her sing backup with Peter Gabriel on a WOMAD tour. Many of the local chumpwads booed her, but not as many as the Catholic-lickspittle media would have you believe.

  • I’m sorry, but that list is the second gayest thing next to RoD’s from Friday…

    Oh, wait…

  • Good call on Franz Ferdinand. And, indirectly, on the awesomeness that is “Panama.” I also head, “It’s not ‘Panama,’ but what is?” in the voice of Edward James Olmos’ character from Blade Runner.

    Charlie Watts is not a robot, but may be a skin job.

  • The Uncanny Canadian

    I find that I can’t relate to any of these comments about some pretty decent songs without an arbitrarily assigned grade next to them.

  • The Uncanny Canadian

    For example, Heart Soul has to be a 9.5/10. And Hard-On for Jesus has to be 6.66 ( 3)/10.

  • teh l4m3 would have said that made it even more teh g4y. Unless iw as all “AWESOME! 1/10”

  • I wonder when Sinead O’Connor is going to get any credit for releasing two totally monster albums at the age of 21 and 24. Agreed.

    For some reason I used to think that Prince’s Dirty Mind and Tom Waits’ Closing Time were released when they were only 19. Stupid old Wikipedia tells me that they were 22 and 24.

    Closing Time is an all time great.

  • hey I just saw the Roots in concert. I highly recommend it.
