Cheap Trick and Bile
The great thing about the introduction of fucking CDs, a music format I did not buy until around ten years ago (when they were on their way out) (if they are on their way out), is I am still discovering really lovely music from the twenty year period I would not have them in my house.
My feelings for CDs in those days mirror what you think of that dink Trump. Recently I found a Cheap Trick "Music For Hangovers" 2002 Live CD still in its shrink wrap. The price tag told the whole story - $28.99. The morons (just about everybody) who paid that kind of money for even a great little CD like that one ought to have had their fucking heads examined with a god damn shot gun.
Another cool recent CD find is Bile's 1994 "Suck Pump." Top drawer no compromise NYC rock and fucking roll. It is the band's first. There are several more I simply must have. I shall be listening to "Ura Fucking Loser" when Christy Clark tells us, "Now I know how Margaret Thatcher felt," as the knives meet their mark and get twisted.
