Playlist for 11-20-09, "The Lost Years of Alex Chilton and Religious Curiosities"


Third in a series of 'theme shows,' where I break down all the music I play on the program into nice, neat little boxes. This one was kinda different, since half the program focused on one musician. That said, Alex Chilton is basically a genre all his own. Since his first and only hit single at the age of 16 with the Box Tops (the excellent tune "The Letter,") he has influenced countless alternative rock and 60's throwback groups with Big Star and then destroyed all traces of that influence with his solo career.

More or less, these records feature a band of musicians that probably first heard the tunes a day before recording them (if at all,) Chilton's "I-don't-give-a-fuck" mentality regarding quality, and countless covers of obscure blues tunes. Aside from that, he developed a habit of pissing people off on purpose during this part of his career, as is evident in tunes like "Riding Through the Reich," and scummily deranged covers of his own beloved discography.

Basically, he's my hero, so I devoted an entire hour to these rarely-heard recordings. Of course, I played a few later Big Star tunes because those are basically the same type of thing.

The second half of the program dealt with obscure religious records from the 1960's and 70's. Mostly private-press home-recorded type deals with a psychedelic bent, but also some oddball kid tunes. Pretty self-explanatory, though not like much other religious music you're likely to hear.
