Mick Karn was the bass player for 80's new-wave/glam band Japan. Not only that, he played on quite a few other records that I’ve enjoyed since my high school days. He passed away this past weekend, and I pulled out some of those favorite records and brought them down to play in his memory.
I already had quite a few new wavey tracks slated to play on the show, so all in all it was quite the “skinny tie affair”.
Holy Fuck – Latin America – Latin (Young Turks/XL, 2010)
The BPA (featuring Connan Mockasin) – Jumps The Fence – I Think We’re Gonna Need A Bigger Boat (Southern Fried, 2009)
Wasted Youth – You’re A Jerk – Reagan’s In (Medusa, 1981)
Fishbone – Another Generation – Fishbone EP (Slash, 1986)
