Sometimes what you want from life isn’t sophistication. Sometimes you just want somebody to reach down between your legs and ease the seat back. The Mullet Love series is this helping hand, mingling classic rock royalty with bands you’re probably encountering for the first time that might spontaneously give you Tennessee Top Hat. This is a celebration of struttin’, riff rich rock that despite what they tell us is alive and well today. It almost goes without saying, PLAY LOUD!
Track listing below. If you experience playback problems pop over to the mix page and it should play fine.
The Impound has been organizing its music archives, and we hit upon the idea of sharing tunes we dig in an alphabetical way. So, for the next few months we’ll be working our way from A-Z with a choice baker’s dozen or so installment each week that includes bands/artists from a single letter.
Our “F” assortment includes DI staples Dan Fogelberg, Fleetwood Mac and Fairport Convention alongside some artists that deserve bigger audiences and critical recognition (The Features, Johnny Flynn and Liam Finn) as well as a monster track from one of our fave-o-rite cult U.K. acts (“Good News Bad News”) named Family. If just one listener decides to explore the Family catalog because of this mix we feel we’re doing God’s work here at the Impound (and you might well start with the killer 2 CD compilation In Their Own Time if you feel so inclined). Now, we’ll shut the “F” up and get rolling…
You can listen to 8tracks mixes on your iPhone (pick up the app here) and Android (pick up the app here).
Uh, we were going to show you a nice picture of Furry Friends with a Fabulous Letter “F” but the Sesame Street gang is still pissed about Romney saying he’s pulling their funding. Looks like it’s gonna be a street fight with the GOP!
At times it seems like life is pelting us with more than we can bear and we just want to fold up and fade away. But then the road opens up to a stretch of beauty and strangeness we didn’t see coming at all, and we can breathe again, the world suddenly and inexplicably humming with no static at all.
