Playlist for 5/13/09 - Mammoth Comes Alive

Big ‘ol load of songs from Mammoth Records this week for the I Love My Label segment. The late label just had a 21st anniversary party/reunion at the legendary Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro, NC, the city where it originated in 1989. Rick Cornell’s cool article in the Independent Weekly looking at big and small sellers on the label inspired me to pick Mammoth this time around. Thanks, Rick. I ran out of time at the end and didn’t get in several songs I had planned on playing. Maybe I’ll spin them next week.

I mentioned last week about $5 Cover, the Memphis music fact and fiction show on MTV. You should also check out $5 Cover Amplified, where you can see nicely done documentaries about artists on the show, including Jack Yarber (aka Jack-O, aka Jack Obilivian) who cleans homes when he’s not keeping rock-and-roll alive.
