Iggy Pop hates “punk rock” (1977)
music shit I melt into a puddle for:
- when the artist references a previous album or song – literally my favorite thing, I’m just like, “ohohoho I too have heard this song and understand this reference”
- girls screaming fuck. it hits different
- when it’s obvious that the artist is smiling while singing
- laughing/talking at the beginning or the end of a song, especially if it sounds like the middle of a conversation and then they fade out and start singing
- onto that, a little shout at the beginning of the song
- the singer singing really low and then hitting this perfectly high note and it sounds like it shouldn’t work but it does
- when the backing vocals and harmonies are really clear – legit perfection
Jan 15 - pre “Kingdome” tracks. These are tracks recorded 6 years ago. Everything was recorded in a tiny ass attic in the dead of winter on the west side of Chicago. It opens with “Westside CHI” which is one my fav songs period! Straight up Chicago house joint that just feels right. Real clever, the whole 2nd verse is a play on the food pyramid. “Are You Upto Snuff” is a punchliners dream! With, “I made the menu but I dunno who sous’d it/ I make up words all the time I Seuss’d it/“ and “If bullets were books you’d begin to see/why they call me Shell Silverstein/“, ending with, “They told me next time I’m hungry get a pear/I told em juggle my balls and get a pair/“.
“Je Suis Charlie” was written after the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris, and “Ms Taylor” is a ballad dedicated to a kindergarten teacher I briefly knew…
“Fly as a Duck” is incredible! Not enough words to explain this song. It’s that feeling when you stop being a punching bag. “Turn your lungs inside out/I’d love to read the things that you scream about/“.
“Mr Cubbie” is a parallel between Ernie Banks and my great granddads life since they died the same week. “Greek Geek” is my overtly sexual take on fraternity/sorority life. “Blackhawk” is a dream about how violence magically ended in the Chi.
Rounding out the end is the A Tribe Called Quest and Initial D inspired “Hachi Roku”, and “We Are CHI”, which lightly touches on my family’s history.

Fucked Up // I Don’t Wanna Live in This World Anymore
I don’t wanna live in this fucking world for one minute more
So I’m gonna go to the corner store and buy another one
But before I do, oh I’m so confused, who are you?
No I don’t wanna know why the store was closed, I need another dose
The key to life is finding your joy, I need another toy
Gimme the biggest hit of that electric shit
Just hook it into my brain
I found a path to God inside of this nothing-box
I’d sell my soul for that little wire and I’ve found a buyer
So let’s dance and then we’ll get a little higher
And set ourselves on fire like two Christmas trees
I think I took too much, a little help please?
Just try to relax, the harder you run, the faster it comes, oh no!
