Clinging To Stars

it was the 1930’s and the US was in a Great Depression. money was tight, jobs were scarce and the country was running on empty. at the time popular music oscillated between reflecting on the reality of the situation and an uncontrollable urge to forget it and think about better days. keep in mind these recordings are 80 years old so the fidelity between songs may vary.

August 24th, 2014 > no wave, odd pop, post-punk, rock 'n' roll

this isn’t any life
it’s just a stupid lifestyle

this is a sample of the punk rock / new wave / no wave / punk funk / rock ‘n’ roll sound that was created in the Pertri dish that was New York City over a period of 8 hot summers (1976-1983).

A Completely Normal Person

i stole this mixtape when I attended the house party in the film Sixteen Candles. the cassette was made by John Hughes as he was selecting music for his classic Gen X teen flicks. not every track made the final cut but that party was awesome; plus i got to second base with my high school crush!
