Up first, the orignal version of “The Model” by German synth pioneers Kraftwerk
Next, the cover version by the menacing, 80s noise trio (or should I say quartet ;) ) Big Black.
So, who did it better? Well, I’m going with Big Black on this one, although I love both versions; Kraftwerk’s version I think is truly the better version, but I prefer BB’s cover because they are one of my favorite bands and they simply nailed it in this instance.
Shellac’s Todd Trainer expresses his love for his Italian Greyhound, Uffizi. No, this is NOT a beastiality/interspecies erotica video!
Pixies– U-Mass (1991)- One of my favorites from one of my favorite bands.
Gheorghe Zamfir– The Lonely Shepherd (don’t know actual year of release, but it appears on the Kill Bill Volume 1 sountrack, released in 2003)- Epic as fuck!
Mark Sultan– Cursed World (2007)- A decent tune from one of my top singers.
Dinosaur Jr– Pieces (2009)- Solid opener from last year’s Farm.
Arctic Monkeys– Cornerstone (2009)- I love this song! My favorite from also last year’s Humbug.
Tool– Parabola (2001)- Tool (and I feel like this song specifically) always seems to come up on these shuffles :)
Big Black– Bazooka Joe (1986)- Another fucked up, but sonically sound number from one of the best bands to come out of the 80s by far.
Lou Reed– Perfect Day (1972)- Lou’s finest solo work.
Black Lips!– Transcendental Light (2007)- Ian on Vocals! which we will be seeing again soon :)
Weezer– Island in the Sun (2001)- A fairly decent song from post-classic Weezer.
