Mp3 of the Day

Leslie Conway Bangs (aka Lester Bangs) died in New York of a Valium and Nyquil overdose on this day in 1982. Bangs was a music journalist who wrote for Creem and Rolling Stone magazines. He has been called one of the “most influential” voices in rock criticism. It was reported that he was listening to The Human League album, Dare, at the time of his death. Today we have the Tullycraft song If You Take Away The Make-Up, Then The Vampires Will Die If you listen close, you’ll hear a shout-out to Lester Bangs in the second verse.

The Greek word “Eureka” (which means “I have found it”) was made the official California state motto in 1963. The motto refers to the discovery of gold in California. Archimedes, the famed Greek mathematician, is said to have exclaimed “Eureka!” when he discovered a method of determining the purity of gold. The Athens, GA band, Eureka California, recently released a 7″ EP on Happy Happy Birthday To Me Records. Today we have the song Baby, I’m Your Garbage Man by Eureka California.

On this day…

On this day in 2003, The Flaming Lips released the single “Fight Test” from their album Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots. When the band recorded the song some members thought that it sounded a bit like the Cat Stevens song “Father And Son” but didn’t think to get clearance from Cat Stevens’ record company. Cat Stevens sued the Flaming Lips over the song’s similarities. He won the lawsuit and received 75% of the royalties from “Fight Test”.
