Nuggets 277 – Girls 6

This is one of my favourite mixes. Sad to report that that there are no videos available for most of the older tracks… You will have to use your imagination.

That’s Della Humphrey in the photo above looking fabulous in the late 1960’s. She features in the last song in this mix ‘ “Don’t Make the Good Girls Go Bad”. There is an interview with Della in the write up below.

Getting Mighty Crowded -- Betty Everett

A Whole New Plan -- Jo Ann Garrett

What’cha Gonna Do About It -- Doris Troy


Oh No Not My Baby -- Maxine Brown

The Jerk -- The Larks

The song of the dance.

Lungomare -- Lust For Youth

Holding You Back & Ashes and Embers -- The Casket Girls

Named for the French woman brought over to the USA as mail order brides.

The acoustic / piano versions of their songs on the album “Piano’ are excellent. See below.

Lust & Violence + Elliott -- Terror Bird


Sister Wife -- Alex Winston

Love the voice, but according to this account it is fortunate that she can still sing.

Keep Falling -- Summer Camp

More about the band and this album on The Quietus.

The Greater Good -- The Leaf Library

The Party -- Betty And The Werewolves

1997, Passing In The Hallway -- Martha

Dream House -- Amanda X

Atop a Cake -- Alvvays

Girls XL & Hazardville -- Potty Mouth
Potty Mouth - Girls XL

It All Means Nothing -- Screaming Females

Adderall -- The Coathangers

Killer Bangs -- Honeyblood

Rochelle Rochelle, Earthbound and Loose -- Butter The Children

Cry About It -- Bad Banana

Longtime fan of everything the Crutchfield twins make. Here is a track from one of their earlier bands. As you can read here they are are all grown up now and have their own bands -- Katie as Waxahache and Alison as Swearin’ .

A Common Place -- Libyans

Don’t Make The Good Girls Go Bad -- Della Humphrey

A classic. Here is the story of Della.

Nuggets 226a – Thrashy

Nuggets 226a - thrashy


Live thrash is good. Until someone thrashy comes to town worth hearing  (T54 ?) this mix will have to do.

The Thermal’s new album continues their old testament crime and punishment theme.  Katie Crutchfield from P.S Eliott shows why screaming in tune is so rewarding, and F***ed Up show us just how much breath you need to sing in a hard core punk band (though eclipsed by Jon Chang of Hayaino Daisuki who has an extraordinary ability to keep the screaming going).

I am really enjoying the Milk Music album (at long last), the latest from The Thermals and GRMLN.

Videos below, including, if I can get my act together, my lame effort from SXSW 2012 showing me heading into the Twilight Sad after eating too many burritos, crashing The Guards and catching a ride on a pedicab (a bike taxi) to see Built to Spill. Crank up the quality and enjoy it in hi-res.

PS, I applaud the photographer who persevered and filmed the F***ed Up clip below amid total chaos, bravo. This band I must see live.
