Well I was going to make a full blown comp for the purpose of this highly
dubious doobius made-up holiday, but fittingly I was too lazy and/or forgot. So I will just throw a few songs up here as sort of a mini-mix you can enjoy in whatever manner you see fitting.
First up, one of my favorite songs, is one that captures a special kind of sadness that I’m sure many are familiar with (not Willie). Off their debut album Lost In The Ozone
Next we have the Funland version of the Old 97’s song Stoned. They give the song a bit more of a punk edge, and features Centro-Matic’s Will Johnson on drums. Off the long out of print Stoned/Garageland split single (that you can get right here)
This is a jazzy bluesy number from Asylum Street Spankers off the album Spanker Madness….where all the songs share this theme
Here is a brand new song, off the just released EP Distilled from Roanoke, VAs finest Blue Moonshine. Stop by in Roanoke if you’re ever in need of a toke from a trucker on his way Johnson City, TN. Also, if you stoners want something of an easter egg, google the band name.
Here’s one from knoxville’s finest, and ex-V-Roys member Mic Harrison. Off the album Right Side Of The Grass
Some rowdy honky tonk from Jason Boland and The Stragglers. Off the album Somewhere In The Middle
Finally we have one of the best, and one of the most appropriately named songs. This is from Hank Flamingo which was Trent Summar’s first band. If anybody happens to have a copy of their long out of print album, I would love love love to have it.
If you gotta have some more, head on over to The Alternate Root for a killer mix over there. Maybe next year I will put these and some other choice songs into a full blown mix….if I remember of course…
