Left of the Dial “Martha Stewart and the Hopeful Misanthropes”
Written by Chris on May 25, 2018
Welcome back to Left of the Dial! We play good music here sometimes, yay. Tune in as Left of the Dial host Chris-R plays some deep cuts from the classic age of vinyl and beyond. We have forgotten gem-like specialties from Grunge icons Stone Temple Pilots and a cut from frontman Scott Weiland stand-alone solo album “12 Bar Blues”, a real creative avant-garde informed diamond in the rough. Post-Sex Pistols and Post-Punk entrepreneurs Public Image Ltd. (featuring Johnny Rotten on lead snarls) who want to tell you that this is in fact not a love song. Some interested cover performances are to be found, including a New-Psychedelia tinge to the only Beatles instrumental “Flying”, along with masterclass Ska/Reggae originators Toots & The Maytals performing classic Radiohead song “Let Down” for the Reggae cover album for OK Computer cleverly entitled Radiodread. And one more cover song that goes out for anybody who saw The Eagles play the Moda Center this Tuesday, I included the Big Lebowski featured Flamenco version of “Hotel California.” Other classics are to be found by beloved bands such as The White Stripes with the Delta-Blues and The Rolling Stones with the song “Monkey Man”.
Anywho, less talk and more rock! Enjoy this weeks freshly curated episode of Left of the Dial.
