This Musical Fruitcake was a pleasure to drive to.  It was made up of songs that sounded great in my 1996 Mercedes Benz E300 Diesel.  I put an awesome sound system into it early in 2003 and it changed driving for me completely.  The highlight of the album for me was the combination of the […]

I found Tiga on a night out with John and Judy. We had been going from club to club and I was ready to throw in the towel when we headed into The Echo.  Tiga was on the decks and we danced until closing.  This selection I have edited comes from his DJ Kicks album […]

One night early in 2003, Cheyenne gave me Kittenz and The Glitz.  Probably because I was sure diggin’ on the electro thing.  The album had been out for a year and the movement for a few, but like NBC said: “If you haven’t seen it, it’s new to you!”–except with “heard it” for this, I […]

Human League/Heaven 17 covered by Simple Minds 20 years after the fact. This thing is soaking in different time periods and influences.

Can’t get enough of this track.  I cut the front of it off to get right to the good stuff that I think is influenced by The Beach Boys.  Anyone else hear it?

Found Frazier Chorus while living in Vegas in the early 90’s.  The original version of this song was on the first album I bought called “Ray”.  I just found this version on Kazaa this year.  For some reason this song gets me in the best mood.

The Walkmen are Jonathan Fire-Eater (who were on the first CD fruitcake) without the heroine junkie lead singer.  It was hard to pick which song off of their debut album to put on here.  If you like this track, you will like all of the album.

Get More KaitO!

Went to see The Walkmen at the Henry Ford, caught these guys as an opening  act.  I bought one album before I left, then when I went to see them at Spaceland a few nights later, I bought their other album.  This track gets right to the core of me. Click the image below to […]

Best they’ve done for me.  Simple.  To the point.  Angry.  Thanks for turning me on, Penny.
