Superdrag – Do The Vampire

I have played a song or two from this concert before but while we are on a middling sound quality kick I had might as well play another. Superdrag will go down as a unfairly forgotten band of the 90's because of "Sucked Out". They deserved better.

Maybe the Twins, too, could be like Vampires... and come back from the dead....

Walt Mink – Stood Up

walt mink is one of my favorites that also suffers from a lack of decent live videos. i considered playing them back on my guest DJ week, but the lack of quality material prevented me. el producto was ubiquitous during the greatest summer of my life, and should have been their breakthrough album (it even got a 10.0/10.0 from pitchfork, back when pitchfork was this little website that you'd probably never heard of). unfortunately, success stayed just around the corner, and they disbanded in 1997. in all its phasey glory, walt mink:

i also encourage you to go out and find their studio werks. best band named after a macalester professor in the business.

By Divine Right – Cupid In Oilskins

I have wanted to play this band for a long time, as they are a favorite of mine, but there is a real lack of live video from them. Furthermore the quality of live footage from them is kind of, well, bad. This video is no different.

I strongly suggest looking these guys up for studio clips, they rule.

The Get Up Kids – Holiday

The Get Up Kids are not from Milwaukee.  However the Promise Ring are. When looking at Promise Ring videos I thought about how they were a crappier version on the Get Up Kids.

I know it is cool to say the Get Up Kids suck but the Something to Write Home About album most definitely did not suck, at least in 2000.

The Rapture – Echoes

I went out for a couple of cold ones with some pals on Friday night. We went to young, hip, ironic people bars. We thought "hey we're Dads now. Let's remember what it was like to be young". Well every stupid bar we walked into was playing the Rapture way louder than it should have been.

And yes, I understand that by playing the Rapture here and now I am no better than them.

The dB’s – Big Brown Eyes

From Allmusic:

The band's music was a quirky blend of smart pop and psychedelia crossed with the more experimental side of new wave. Though they never received widespread recognition outside of critical acclaim, they provided a key link between Big Star and '80s alternative guitar acts such as R.E.M.

Pretty Fountains of Waynesie if you ask me.
