Throwback Thursday: Captain Sensible

When I hear the name Captain Sensible, I don’t immediately imagine a cool rebellious English rocker who started his career in a punk band and formed his own British political party. That’s exactly the person I’m speaking of, Mr. Sensible.
Captain Sensible co-founded the punk band The Damned and when they went on hiatus wrote a hit single, “Jet Boy/Jet Girl.” His music has been sampled in rap songs and he’s even done his own rap parady, which is the hit we are focusing on for this Throwback Thursday. Plus don’t we all love a Brit that sports a red beret on the regular?!

Captain Sensible – Wot

P.S. – Did you see the way he shoved poor ol’ Adam Ant?!

Throwback Thursday: Secret Service

Back when I wrote about Games back in October, our dj buddy Flufftronix pointed out that they had sampled a track called “Flash in the Night” by an eighties band called Secret Service. Secret Service is a synth/pop/new wave band from Sweden. Fun fact: some of the band members later together formed Stockholm Records which ended up as a joint venture with Polygram…which produced The Cardigans! Check out Secret Service’s hit “Flash in the Night,” and after that check out the video for the song in which Flash in the Night was sampled by Games, “Shadows in Bloom.”

COOLRUNNINGS: A Self-Portrait

After a scathing review of their live CMJ performance, from the ever pretentious Pitchfork, psych-indie rockers, COOLRUNNINGS, move on unphased like Vin Diesel walking away from an explosion, never looking back. The Knoxville, Tennessee (my hometown) boys recently released a new single, Chorus, off of an unreleased EP, “Teenage Tennessee.” We invite you to get to know COOLRUNNINGS in our Sorry, Darlin exclusive self-portrait style interview.


San Dimas Oasis from BABES FOREVER EP



Mental Illness from BUFFALO EP



Chorus from TEENAGE TENNESSEE


For a different take on the interview, Sorry, Darlin asked COOLRUNNINGS to let us take a peek into who they are and what goes on in their brains by providing a couple random facts about themselves or  thoughts they may have. Enjoy!

ff
FORREST FERGUSON
1. The hospital I was born in was named after the guy who first used nitrous oxide for medicinal purposes. This is important to me, for some reason.
2. The saxophone breaks in “Coronado” from <a href=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-eE7dwoHMEI”>Halcyon Digest</a>  is probably my favorite thing going on in music right now. I love the un-indie-ness of the whole affair.
3. Girls just wanna have fun. True fact.

bb
BRANDON BIONDO
1. I’ve always wanted to make a rap album.
2. I don’t want anybody to hear my rap album.
3. At this point in my life, I am fully embracing being a (harmless) pervert.
4. I truly believe that Always Something There To Remind Me by Naked Eyes is the greatest pop song ever recorded.

ew
ELLIOT WHITE
1. I want to say what i really think, but I really have to think before i say it.
2. I don’t care for the empty lifestyle that I see the majority of our generation living; everyone’s looking for fun fun fun all the time, but it seems that it can turn to shit real quick.
3. I am going to produce more of my art (visual/audio) than I think I can, I’m capable of doing it. You will see it out there when I’m done. I’m gonna show everyone what an immature 20 year old boy thinks about them and if no one cares, it won’t bother me at all, at least I’ve made something out of what i can do.

dq
DAN QUIRAND
1. Lamar Burton was a personal hero of mine as a child, he was on Reading Rainbow during the day and on Star Trek as Geordi LaForge at night.
2. Sincerity is my favorite quality in anyone.
3. Last night, a bum asked me for a cigarette and then invited me to “the Hobo Jungle” and told me not to worry, I wouldn’t get hurt. I declined.

dt
DAVID THOMASSON
1. Well I know a lot of guys whose dads are interstate truckers, and I’ve taken up some interesting conversations with them about it, so I like to think I know a bit about that sort of thing when I really don’t. I like to imagine that the interstate commerce circuit is the closest thing we’ve got to riverboat piloting, à la Mark Twain, so I’m sure its safe to assume truckers are really a breed of misunderstood visionaries that are too often taken for overweight flannel NASCAR guys.
2. The first show I ever went to (and this is embarrassing only because it was so late in the game for someone my age) was They Might Be Giants at the Sundown in the City festival in Knoxville. I was a junior in high school so I was like seventeen–it took that long for me to see a real live performance. I blame my surroundings more than anything. Anyway I still think TMBG are a great thing, they’re totally passed off as some kind of clean Ween joke band kinda of thing, but the album Lincoln is totally boss. I wish I was a Jewish songwriter that had the patience to appreciate The Replacements. ‘Where Your Eyes Don’t Go’ and ‘They’ll Need A Crane’ are some choice tracks.
3. My maternal grandfather was the son of an old country Czech pianist, raised in Cicero during the 20s, and he carried on the family business up until his dying day. I’ve got musicians in my family, but most of them give it up to become engineers or some other crap that I’m not good at. I never saw myself playing bass, but I can’t really play guitar standing up, so who’s complaining. I was drafted into a cool band where performance and songwriting are a priority. I thought I was gonna work at Home Depot for the rest of my life. Maybe now I’ll be looked over for a manager’s position if they ever hire me back.

Throwback Thursday: Aaliyah

Hey, hey it’s Thursday! You know what that means? It means tonight is HOT & STICKY AND we get to travel back in time and revisit a special track together. Today we are going “Back and Forth” with Aaliyah (R.I.P). It is such a perfect gem of a song from the L-I-Y-A-H’s 1994 album “Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number.” I know it doesn’t seem like much of a throwback, but it’s 16 years old! Time flies.

See you tonight for Round 5 of HOT & STICKY!!
