A flier for the Oh Messy Life radio program consisting of handwritten text on top of a black and white illustration showing floating orbs and a person sitting on a stone throne.

Oh Messy Life – August 3, 2023 Show Notes

Track 1: Sinead O’connor – I Am Stretched on Your Grave

Starting off the show with a track in tribute to the late Sinead O’connor, rest in peace.

Track 2: Amps for Christ – Janitor of Lunacy

This cover of the Nico song is one of my all time favorites.

Track 3: Charming Hostess – Iron Man

Honestly, I can’t remember how I found this one, though I have been a fan of Charming Hostess for quite a while. I think I was clicking around in Bandcamp somewhere? It’s off of an album of Black Sabbath covers by various artists.

Track 4: Susan Allen – In a Landscape

I found this one from former KZSU DJ Murray’s Bandcamp purchases page.

Track 5: Foyer Red – Etc

Found via WFMU’s Heavily Played Records page.

Track 6: SACRED//PAWS – Almost It

A while back, former KZSU DJ Hannah Mae was telling me about other bands that Ray Aggs from Shopping played in, and I finally got around to checking them out.

Track 7: Olivia Jean – Orinoco Flow

Can’t remember where I found this one either, but I do very much love a cover that takes the original song in a different direction like this.

Track 8: Talulah Gosh – Steaming Train

Seemed like it fit into the vibe of the show, going out to Phil the Talulah Gosh super fan.

Track 9: Catfight! – Majority Rules

I think I found heard someone mention this band on Mastodon so I thought I’d check them out.

Track 10: Warp – Planet of Skunks

Going back for another track from their new album, Automatic Gratuity.

Track 11: Sprints – Little Fix

Going back for another track from Sprints at they also seemed to fit the direction the show seemed to be going in.

Track 12: Bully – All This Noise

Another find from WFMU’s Heavily Played Records List. The other tracks on the album were a bit quieter, but this week I was feeling the loudness.

Track 13: SILENT ERA – Groundswell

Checking out another track from this bay area band from a little while ago that I missed when they were around.

Track 14: Street Eaters – Love Like Anthrax w/Marissa Paternoster

I ended up with a lot of covers this episode. This one is from Street Eaters’
Simple Distractions EP.

Track 15: Baus – Big Black Cloak

Another fun track from the upcoming Zum compilation: Zum Audio Vol 5, with 26 different bands on it, available on August 18th.

Track 16: Sinead O’connor – Mandinka

Ending things off with one more song from Sinead, perhaps my favorite of hers. Listening to her voice here, I feel like you can hear her influence on so many many singers that came afterwards.
