with the negotiations completed and contracts all signed, we're happy to announce the recruitment of a fresh round of guest DJs. we're looking for a few sensitive young men and women to take a turn behind the tables.
we dug up `6 from the retirement home, but if you're interested as well, please send an email to hungryjoe [this thingy] wgom.org. first priority goes to new DJs. spots left over will be spread among returning DJs, awarded by random number generator. also, months will be awarded by random number generator.
come be the next opportunistic renegade.
Greetings Citizens. Be forewarned, my tastes - although they do encompass a wide assortment of genres - are fairly pedestrian when compared to the great variety displayed weekly by hitman and jobu (and others). The videos this week may not push many boundaries or broaden many horizons musically, but its music I like and I had a blast putting it all together. Enjoy. Or don't...
First up is Feeder, a run-of-the-mill British alternative/grunge band. I like most of their catalogue, but I love this song.
Enjoy your week off boys.
Thanks for putting up with my tastes all week. I figure a fitting end to cheaptoy week would involve some cookie monster vocals.
Behold! The Eagles of death metal! (or at least, the inspiration for the name of that band.)
A band already introduced to the Nation.
This is your horrorscope. \m/
Ahhh, Death. Founders of a genre. Their last two albums were terrific, some of the best music I've ever heard. Sadly, Chuck Schuldiner, founder of the band and lead guitarist and vocalist, died of a brain tumor in 2001 while working on a project with similar musical style but a more traditional vocalist.
It wouldn't seem right to have a cheaptoy week and not play some Iron Maiden.
For fun, the same song as sung by original lead singer Paul Di'anno after the jump.

After yesterday's vocal quality disaster (although I felt the band was pretty tight, at least.) I made sure to listen to this one all the way through. The sound quality isn't the greatest, but the performance is far better.
Anyway, all that anyone really needs to take away from this is that Russell Allen and Michael Romeo are awesome.

and so begins the guest DJ week of cheaptoy. prepare to have your faces thoroughly melted...
I thought we'd start out one of the lowest rated weeks in WGOM history by saying a little prayer in the Metal Church.
