5/21/07 Show - Rarities

All songs by many of the classic post-punk artists that never made it onto a proper album. Proper meaning an album of superior breeding, manners, and gentlemanly gamesmanship. These songs only existed on albums of ill repute. Boorish albums of the lower class. Dickensian urchins, not really our sort, you know? While the popular tunes played croquet and went yachting, some of these tracks generally remained unheralded as B-sides, outtakes, demos, and whatnot. Maybe some of them were slightly heralded. I'm not really sure how you herald something in the first place but I would like to learn.

Maybe just by playing the songs and talking about them, I may have heralded them. I hope so because they're good. Or at the very least, interesting. Some people just like things because they're lesser-known, lesser appreiated. Some people think that bowling alleys got big lanes. I'm not either of those people. MP3 link is below:
