t.g.i. mixtape 83 curated by kevin murphy of the moondoggies
    • FRIDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2010

    • Posted by: Joe Puglisi

    This week's tape comes from the down-to-earth collection of guitarist and vocalist Kevin Murphy, front man for the Seattle band The Moondoggies. When we spoke on Wednesday, in between conversing about their new record Tidelands and their slip 'n' slide shenanigans with fellow Sub Poppers Blitzen Trapper (more on that soon) he told me his record player recently broke (bummer!). So our best wishes go out to his vinyl collection, which no doubt provided the inspiration for some of these choices.

    1. "Coyote's Song (When You Hear It Too)" - Nobody and Mystic Chords Of Memory - Tree Color See

    The singer of Beachwood Sparks (which I believe isn't "officially" over yet) from a few years back. I love this song.

    2. "Going Back Song" - The Baptist Generals - No Silver/No Gold

    These guys put this out on Sub Pop in the early 2000s; I heard they might have a new album soon. I hope that's true.

    3. "Sweethearts" - Camper Van Beethoven - Key Lime Pie

    I believe this song is about Ronald Reagan.

    "War" - Le Sang Song - Demos

    [Ed. Note: Couldn't get a copy of this in time. Head to the Myspace for the original, it's worth it.]

    This is the singer of Seattle band The Lights; I think the guy is a great song writer. This song is very haunting.

    4. "Dreams Come True Girl" - Cass McCombs - Catacombs

    My brother got me into this guy. Thanks brother.

    5. "Magic Fingers" - Frank Zappa and the Mothers Of Invention - 200 Motels

    The 200 Motels version is awesome, so if you get a chance to see the movie it's very Zappa; it has Keith Moon and Ringo Starr in it.

    [Ed. Note: This song is difficult to find in digital format, and I agree, the 200 Motels version is TASTY. Here is the best rip I could find to give you an idea of it if you've never heard this cut. If you have a better quality copy pass it along!]

    6. "Moonbeam Song" - Harry Nilsson - Greatest Hits

    This song mellows me out.

    7. "Dance of the Inhabitants of the Invisible City of Bladensburg" - John Fahey - The Yellow Princess

    If you ever come across the book , How Bluegrass Destroyed My life, by John Fahey I highly suggest it, a lot of funny stories. He doesn't even mention he plays guitar for the first 100 pages. It's not really an autobiography, but stories from his past.


    8. "Out In The Woods" - Leon Russell - Carney

    Yup.

    9. "Iodine" - Leonard Cohen - Death Of A Ladies' Man

    This is a great Leonard Cohen record; it definitely has the Phil Spector feel.
