Just took a quick trip down to Richmond, VA. Very cool city, went to a couple groovy record stores, picked up The Minutemen’s What Makes a Man Start Fires? and a few gnarly 7”s.
Here are a few killer tracks that aided my patience while stuck in endless Easter traffic:
Jeffrey Lewis – Seattle –The Last Time I Did Acid I Went Insane – Rough Trade 2002
50 Cent – Get in My Car – Get Rich or Die Tryin’ – Interscope 2003

The Clash – The Gates of the West – Originally Appeared on The Cost of Living EP, Heard here on The Clash on Broadway
Talking Heads – Cities (Live in NJ 1980) – The Name of This Band is Talking Heads – Sire 1982
(I couldn’t hunt down this version. Instead, here is the famous show from Rome in 1980, featuring Adrian Belew. Your welcome).
