Playlist and Mix for 2011-05-08

This one, if you listen to it without my voiceovers, flows REALLY well from the mad, mad depressing up to a high energy point.

I would like to note that to me, The Ludovico Technique sounds a hell of a lot better in the studio than they did live.[1]

Thanks to Badger and Teighnted for parts of this week’s show. And, as always, thanks to Adam for the opportunity to have a show on the stream.

Welcome To My Nightmare – Victims In Ecstacy
Hurt – Johnny Cash
Sally’s Song – Amy Lee
People Are People – Depeche Mode
Fascination Street – The Cure

Make Me Wanna Die – The Pretty Reckless
Fully Alive – Flyleaf
Baby Got Back – Throwdown
Heal My Scars – The Ludovico Technique

[1] I feel the same about Melt-Banana, who I saw open for Tool in 2007. I suspect this is more a sound engineer failing than a band failing – having heard both bands live and recorded, it seemed that the sound board operator hadn’t balanced things properly for the acoustics of the space the bands were playing in.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.
