This issue Jlm Downie who DJs at ZFD at Fury Murry’s on Mondays and Greed at The Maylair on Thursdays chooses live tracks, without even mentioning Nirvana once, assured to put a smile on his lace any day of the week.

1. The Beatles: She Said She Said. John Lennon teaches the world how to write a classic pop song and retain all the style and quirkiness missing from current efforts.

2. The Cranes: Tomorrow’s Tears. Sod the ethereal and haunting tags, this is just plain SCAREY.

3. Mercury Rev: Carwash Hair. It may be Dean Wareham oi Galaxy 500’s guitar that sets this appart lrom its

peers. Whatever, a very appealing song.

4. Sonic Youth: Rowche Rumble. Typically wonderfully grungy cover oi an early Fall song.

5. KLF: Chill Out. Really an album, but for me a long song best suited to bedtime and a mug of scalding cocoa.
