Playlist for 5/6/09
Week 2 of the Spring Pledge Drive was pretty darn quiet. Your pledges are still very much needed - you can do so right here or call 414-799-1917. Lots of cool gifts can be yours. Do it. Please, please, please.
I played the new album from Jack-O & the Tennessee Tearjerkers, The Disco Outlaw, which I dig much. Jack and other Memphis people, including Amy LaVere, Harlan T. Bobo and Ben Nichols from Lucero, are getting some attention for appearing in Craig Brewer’s $5 Cover on MTV. Brewer, the man behind Hustle & Flow and Black Snake Moan, follows around Memphis musicians on the show, blending fact and fiction while capturing LaVere in her undies and rapper Muck Sticky acting wacky with midgets and girls with whips. Fun stuff. It’s the first MTV show that I have even thought about looking at in at least a decade. Where are you tonight, Beavis and Butthead?
Next week the I Love My Label segment will feature the late Mammoth Records out of Carrboro, North Carolina. Post any requests in the comments.
