"The Punk Stops Here" : THE WEEKEND MIX

This certainly isn't the punkiest of punk mixes. It's more like what I've been thinking about for the last few days. Not all of it, but about half of it.

I haven't been able to get that opening guitar riff of "Johnny Jewel" out of my head, or that killer "BAP BAP BAP BAP....BAP" that opens up "New Rose." Add the "Daa didda dee YOW" from "Scissor Man" and well, maybe I should see someone. sounds good all together.


New Rose- The Damned
Tattooed Love Boys- The Pretenders
Young Savage- Ultravox
I'm Not Like Everybody- The Kinks
Scissor Man- XTC
Daddy Rollin' Stone- Johnny Thunders w/Steve Marriott & Phil Lynott
King's Lead Hat- Brian Eno
All Around The World- The Jam
Trick Bag- The Artesians
NYCYC- Daryl Hall & Robert Fripp
Have Love Will Travel- The Sonics
Little Johnny Jewel- Television

This is the "punk" mix I made in 1980 or so. Only thing missing is "2,4,6,8 Motorway" by the Tom Robinson Band, or something by the Vibrators.

Another classic Mix! I share these mixes with my wife and she's really gonna dig this one. Always loved that Cash photo too. Thanks Sal!

Seems like only yesterday I had my sweaty little hands on the bendy, reasonably circular piece of black plastic which contained "New Rose" within its grooves. Was it really THAT many years ago? It was a blast then & it's still a blast now. Thanks for (yet another) great mix.

Great playlist, and I'm familiar with almost everything on it.

But....Johnny Thunders and Steve Marriot? Where is that from? And why don't I know it?

Sal Nunziato said...

Steve, it's from the "So Alone" record.

Jeez, Steve, there goes whatever street cred you had left. "So Alone" is essential listening.

"So Alone."

Ah. That's what I figured, but I haven't listened to that in ages, and to be honest I wasn't that crazy about it back in the day.

I'll have to revisit it, and not just to restore the tatters of my near non-existent street cred.

Nice-looking mix as always Sal - thanks!

To be honest "So Alone" was a mixed bag when it came out because Johnny Thunders fans expected more after The New York Dolls, and Heartbreakers.
Now that he's dead, it stands as his best solo work, and the track in question is an interesting artifact crossing several rockin' generations. And it's got charm up the wazoo.

Weird coincidence, Daryl Hall performed NYNYC for the first time outside the studio on his TV show.
