Wow, so you think you're done doing drugs in your life?

Check out Suicide's "Ghost Rider" from 1978 or whenever it was, and beware. I mean it. Brace yourself for the weirdness of this one. For your drugs are never far behind you.
Also there's something by the Swans on YouTube, too that I need to get in tune with. Give me time.

Is this the thread where I go on and on and on about music? I think it is.
I've found myself very very bored with a lot of music since I got back from California. I don't know why. The whole thing just kindof upset my routine or something.
So here's a long rant about the few things I HAVE managed to get interested in:
the first Kajagoogoo album (of "Too Shy" fame) which I haven't heard since I was like 12 years old. I am trying to get a hold of their earlier stuff when they were called Art Nouveau but I don't know if Limahl was in most of that stuff or not. I think Limahl has a great voice. So sue me.
I'm listening to Killing Joke right now but that probably isn't any of your business.
Did I mention those two Who songs?
I need help. These damn London post punk compilations keep staring at me, making me feel guilty that despite having bought them over a month ago, I've barely played them at all. I hate that. I also have an Australian post punk compilation I need to get to before I die, someday. But I'll probably hear that one before the London one because I just hate fucking having to listen to an entire post punk compilation where there's only fucking 2 good bands or whatever. I fucking hate doing that. And I refuse. Not this weekend. I'll do it on a weeknight. Fuck it.
I want my Killing Joke dance remix 12" goth dance music. And I can only be so drunk at one time.

Also my friend made me a CD of an old, old gig by XTC from like Jan 1980 and that is a lot of fun, too.
Also a surefire thing is World Domination Enterprises. They never fail to satisfy. Never. The beat the crap out of most other UK indie bands circa the mid to late 80's, and I know a Seattle based music journalist who agrees. They even dabbled in hip hop. Crazy.
If you're looking for a song by them to try "Asbestos Lead Asbestos" is as good a place to start as any. But don't say I didn't warn you that you will then want to own every single piece of music they did.

You better smack my arm and put the needle of 80's music in.
I just pulled out Killing Joke's Adorations and I'm a happy fucking camper. I wonder if there's a video on YOU TUBER!!!
That's what they did was gothic dance music. I never thought of Killiing Joke like that before, but I think that's actually pretty accurate.
KILLING JOKE - "ADORATIONS" LIVE

ON YOU TUBER:
Don't like it? Listen to the album version.
Baby, they were one of the best damn things that ever came out of Britain, mark my words. Remember Nirvana were sued for ripping one of their riffs off.
Killing Joke were especially good circa 1985:
"A Love Like Blood":
Christ when I heard that song when I was 14, my whole world exploded, man.
