Your list is proving theories of balance. Peggy Lee and Dead Kennedys: one night only! Excellent tunes.

When I was a young lad, I spent a short stint living in Salt Lake City in late '80 and early '81. Two of my three housemates were from San Francisco. One of them told me that there was a band called "The Dead Kennedys." We agreed that this was the most offensive band name we'd ever heard. Who knew that within a year, I'd be a huge fan.

OooWeee, that's some fun! The Cramps and The Amboy Dukes, where else would you find that other than the Compound?

You cannot go wrong when you have the Buzzcocks and Louis Prima/Keely Smith in the same playlist. That's a world I want to live in.

Who is the Reverand Horton Heat? A relative of Screaming Lord Sutch?

Bubs said...

Screaming Lord there's a name I haven't seen or heard in a while. No, the Rev would be more closely related to Mojo Nixon and Skid Roper I think. Lord Sutch would be closer to Screaming Jay Hawkins or Alice Cooper.

Barbara, Ten, glad you liked it. Counting our girls' music, our iTunes is now up to 6075 songs. When I'm in control of the playlist it tends heavily to garage/rockabilly/hillbilly/lounge. When Nora's got it there's more punk rock and ska, and Hannah has an eclectic mix of Tom Waits, movie soundtracks and bands like Franz Ferdinand, the Futureheads and Modest Mouse. Amanda is heavy on glam rock.

Johnny, I still occasionally worry that someone won't "get it" when Nora wears one of her jackets that has a prominent DK patch on the back. So far, knock wood, no problems with the older folks.

Dale, it's all about the dual nature of man here at the compound.
