prank calls 1996

check it out. harry sachz.

harry responds, "somebody gawna diiii."

pumped up with some steam. the next portion of our 1996 jams/mix has been supplied by Stewart Stevenson.

#111 Superdrag “Destination Ursa Major”

Superdrag dresses like the The Ramones and plays songs like this one.

#110 Prodigy “Firestarter”

Can dubstep really be traced back to Keith Flint? I think we've re-discovered all responsible parties. They all were members of Prodigy, and they stuck lots of metal crap into holes in their faces.

#109 DJ Shadow “Napalm Brain/Scatter Brain”

I was startled to realize my name was touching my face until it moved.

#108 The Beatles "Real Love"

There are 6 or 7 different videos of "Real Love" on Youtube. All of them suck.

#107 Sponge “Wax Ecstatic (To Sell Angelina)”

Post-grunge dudes started wearing glam outfits. They're possibly in a high school during roller derby class. Mostly weird images involving pills and the sale of drugs and honey.

#106 Polvo "Bridesmaid Blues"

These parents can't take them away. "Wobbly will prevent the firestorm." "ITS ON FIRE!" no go back to sleep you were just having a stupid fucking nightmare.

#105 Brujeria “Hermanos Menendez”

The Menendez brothers didn't get to sing on this song because they're in jail for killing their parents. Was it #MurderForPizza ? We're taking your calls.

#104 My Bloody Valentine “Map Ref 41N 93W”

Light flickerers. Interrupting my train of thought. MBV reunion actually started up in 1996 with this song. The subsequent new full length is prepared at a rate of 2 songs a year so that means we'll have 32 songs on this bitch. Word up.

#103 Counting Crows “A Long December”

Justifies their existence. Which is saying a lot for this song.

#102 Spazz “WWF Rematch At The Cow Palace (Aluta Continua)”

The cartel's power team is in. Poison man's reign of terror. These kids.

#101 DJ Kool “Let Me Clear My Throat”

Ed Lover dance invention. Special dedication to all the ladies if you got real hand, real fingernail, real kneecap, you goin to school, make some noise.

#100 Weezer “Devotion”

Fluterying pieces off of the lego rainbow. Scurrying away. In the deep central caramel center of "Devotion" lies the first or second or many push-asides. Lego tower was serious business. The kids in the class made sure to "fingerprint" (actually ink on a piece of scotch tape) and match the finger prints with the legos. The effort was a long shot to begin with, Now it looks like a big dark blue half sqere with white stripes haning out of it.

#99 Busta Rhymes featuring Ol' Dirty Bastard "Woo-Haa! I Got You All In Check"

Jonah's stern fern big face. It looks like the trash heep but more 2-D. And more mobile. A kid got run over by a car and ODB was the only gentlemen who was able to investigate and access the situation facy enough too pull little small little child same from out of harm's way. Later that night he jumped on stage because I needed to let people know what the true story was all about. "Puffy's Good, But Wu-Tang Is For The Children. I went out today and I got me a new suit."

#98 No Doubt “Happy Now?”

No Doubt's pissed in this one. inner-tension! ooooohh so dramatic you guys.

#97 Redman “Whateva Man”

Meth and Red continue rolling and rulings. This was possibly a pilot/trailer for their other collaborative videos and movies. But prolly not.

#96 Bush "Swallowed"

wtf this song doesn't suck at all, quit bein' a little bitch.

#95 Failure “Solaris”

Much concern over George Clooney's 2005 blockbuster Solaris. Wasn't sure if it kicked any ass. (words...words...words...)

#94 White Town "Your Woman"

It loos like someone's following people around town with a telescope, which is topical since voyeurism appears to be very topical in the media as of late. This was one of the songs that song dude made on a 4-track in his bedroom and then was played all over K-Rock 12 months later.

#93 Beck "Readymade"

Listening to modern rock stations in 95/96/97 sounded somewhat exciting. The obvious turds kept the stations grounded. However, outside of this was strange variety and creativity. Locate any "Buzz Clip" commercial within that period for the proof. "Song 2" Squirrel Nut Zippers, the Odelay singles, "Your Woman," "The Perfect Drug," and "Paranoid Android" could be played in succession and no one would think twice about it. (EDIT: None of these were on the radio in 1996 lol. Except "Odelay" singles obviously.)

#92 Satyricon "Nemesis Divina"

They really hit their stride with this one. The guns are helping.
