"Ain't No Rest for the Wicked" - Cage the Elephant (by request)

You are a saint, sir. I would've told the listener "No fucking way" and hung up on them. This is one of the worst bands going right now.

Cage the Elephant have this weird thing where I sometimes guilty like a single (In One Ear, Cold, Cold, Cold) specifically for its lack of anything that suggests its them.

In One Ear is say the Foo Fighters...........Cold Cold Cold is vintage Stones or something like that. The more of themselves they put into their songs the worst they are............and that's always a bad sign.

To the best of my recollection, I've never completely blown off a listener ... and I can remember at least two requests for the Grateful Dead. The most I've ever done is tell the caller, "I'll see if we have that," and hang up.

> This is one of the worst bands going right now.

I've got nothing against them. I've seen them once, in a small club, and they tore the roof off the place.

Have you ever played anything besides "Crazy Horses" for an Osmond birthday? I wouldn't, but wasn't sure if you ever trotted anything else out.

According to Chuck Eddy's book on metal, the entire Crazy Horses album is pretty kick-ass, but I've never had the gumption to actually check it out. Maybe today's the day.

My mentor at KRCC had another Osmonds track that was pretty cool -- almost like a pop-friendly Sabbath song. The name isn't coming to mind though.

"Shut Up" - The Cootees
"You Talk Too Much" - George Thorogood & the Destroyers
"Stop Talking" - The Connection
"Shut Up" - Savages

Has anyone ever requested "Tell That Girl To Shut Up"? Pref. the Holly & The Italians version. No disrespect to Mr. Thorogood, but Holly & The Italians would have fit that block better.

I've played it, but I don't think I've ever received a request for it. Definitely the H&tI version. (The only cover I know is Transvision Vamp's. It's been years since I heard that one, so I guess it didn't make much of an impression on me.)

Well, since the block was dedicated to Strom Thurmond ...

I think I'll do an all-Brit show when I return to the airwaves on the 18th.

It's been a long time since I've hated bands just for having some commercial success. Cage the Elephant has made a lot of solid singles and their last album was very good in that vein. I also saw them live, and as in Delvin's case, I can confirm they are excellent on stage.

I don't hate them because they're successful. I hate them because they're fucking terrible.

There's the big clue as to what leads me to hate certain artists/bands. I hate musicians who get rich and famous while making totally shitty music.

Any requests for my show on the 18th? British or otherwise?

I may as well start soliciting help now, lest the jet lag make it a challenge to compile when I get back home.

Requests? How about something off The Suburbs' "Hey Muse" (like "Lovers" or "Our Love") and anything from Kelley Stoltz's "Que Aura" (like "Same Pattern" or "I'm Here for Now")?
