Bryan Ferry - Ladytron. A really late mention, but Bryan Ferry’s performance at Coachella was such a welcome distraction from all the hyped acts that took the stage this year. How a man approaching seventy can come off this debonair is beyond me.

My kids were watching Scooby Doo last night, and I couldn’t believe I saw this: a spoof of Warhol’s Factory scene with a fake Velvet Underground performing what sounds uncannily like “All Tomorrow’s Parties.” The homage gets even more satirical when names like Randy Warsaw and Eeko are substituted for the true life icons. While it’s a cute gesture for hip parents watching ‘toons with their kids, I was a bit disappointed by the absence of Sterling and Moe, because I’m THAT guy.

The Supersonics - New Guitar Boogie Shuffle, 1953

If there is a better exit theme for this week of hell, then I just don’t what it is.

Opal - Empty Box Blues. Wha? Opal had a music video? Strange seeing the quieter half of Mazzy Star exhibiting such an awkward sense of humor.
