End Of The Century presents:

Janet Jackson, Control
LJ hosts End of the Century today!
From the man himself:
I have reached 1986 in my survey of each year! We don’t typically think of 1986 or the late ’80’s in general as strong years in the annals of music history, but I will argue that this bias is undeserved.
Exhibit A: Janet Jackson’s Control came out in 1986
Exhibit B: So did “I Want You” by Elvis Costello
Exhibit C: So did my favorite Nick Cave album.
Exhibit D: So did “Kiss” by Prince … one of my favorite karaoke songs.
The defense rests.

End Of The Century presents:

DAF - Alles ist Gut

When I hosted End of the Century four weeks ago, I focused on 1975 to 1981.   I’m picking up with 1981 and 1982 for this show.  I’m also slowing my roll a little; trying to choose a few songs from each year between 1975 and 1980 proved to be too ambitious.  So, I’m just looking at two years, and maybe dipping my toe into 1983.

Friday Clock Out presents:

Rough Age - "Hit"

L.J. has Coldon Martin joining him to DEBUT the NEW single from his BRAND NEW band, Rough Age!

Do you like Sonic Youth? Mission of Burma? Then, this might be something you dig. Or, as the band describe themselves: “Post-Punk With Pop Hooks…But Don’t Worry, Not Too Many.” LJ is totally going to give Coldon grief about this tagline.

Coldon is formerly of Lightfields. Coldon and LJ have been friends for quite a few years at this point and like argue and commiserate about music. Coldon is a true music geek and a pleasure as a friend, so this should be a pretty delightful show!

End Of The Century presents:

I’m doing a Rock Blocks song for End of the Century!
There will be the 80’s (in particular, a lot from 1983)!
There will be smooooove jams (and blippy jams, and discordant noise)!
There will be geeky music trivia!
