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.

Nuggets 173 – Morning

Nuggets 173 - Morning

A mixture of slow core Galaxy 500 sounding bands, some unlikely covers and guys singing with high voices. The Joy Division cover by Bedhead is fab. I particularly like the first track by Horrid Red, a new band by members of Teenage Panzerkorps; kraut-punk with more Neu!

I included a track from Sparklehorse which is particularly smooth – Shade and Honey. Whenever I listen to this track I idly try and work out what the song is about. I tracked the lyrics down, and fucked if know what he is singing about. Anyway, it’s a great tune. The king of skiffle, Lonnie Donegan plays us out. I will post the tracks soon.

Shade & Honey

I could look in your face
For a thousand years
It’s like a civil war
Of pain and of cheer

But if you was a horse
I could help you with your chains
I could ride you through the fields
By your fiery mane

May your shade be sweet
And float upon the lakes
Where the sun will be
Made of honey

I’ll cry gardens while you burn
‘Cause no one here can save you
She’s returning to the Earth
But one day she’ll be silver

The stars are dying in my chest
Till I see you again
She was born with the wings of a hawk
Where she combs her hair with blood

May your shade be sweet
And float upon the lakes
Where the sun will be
Made of honey

May your shade be sweet
And float upon the lakes
Where the sun will be
Made of honey

May your shade be sweet
May your shade be sweet
And float upon the lakes…

May your shade be sweet
