THIS IS OUR MUSIC: Tom Tom Club – “As above so below”.

Avant garde video for “As Above, So Below” directed by fellow RISD graduate Mary Lambert.

Although that video was never officially sanctioned by Warner Bros. Records, its black and white, grainy filmic qualities and mix of salacious sex and tarot readings seems far more in line with the quirky, kitschy aesthetic of the self-titled album.

The Replacements will open their vault doors on October 6th to release For Sale: Live at Maxwell’s 1986 (via Rhino). The recording was captured on a 24-track mobile studio during the band’s February 4th, 1986 performance in front of just 30 people at the Hoboken, New Jersey venue.

One of the last performances to feature Bob Stinson before his departure, the epic show has only ever been heard as a low-quality bootleg. 

Remastered in 2007 but not made commercially available until now, For Sale marks the iconic rockers’ first live album to be released on CD, LP, and digitally, as 1985’s The Shit Hits the Fans was only purchasable on cassette.

THIS IS OUR MUSIC: Oasis – “Talk Tonight”

THIS IS OUR MUSIC: Oasis – “Talk Tonight”.

“Talk Tonight” is a song written by the band’s lead guitarist Noel Gallagher. It was released as a B-Side on the UK #1 single “Some Might Say”along with “Acquiesce” and “Headshrinker” and appears on the B-side compilation album, The Masterplan.

“Talk Tonight” is one of many acoustic B-side tracks sung by Noel, and was at the time, the most vulnerable song he had ever attempted. It was inspired by the near-breakup of the band in Los Angeles in autumn 1994, when Noel walked out without telling anyone and headed for San Francisco.
