elastic bands – this week: W

arteesane-W-elastic-bands

These boots are made for W……..
here’s the game to illustrate either:
How wildly eclectic your taste is… or,
How perfectly streamlined it is.

Rules.
I will post a letter of the alphabet
all BANDS or ARTISTS must begin with that letter.
Artists letter is determined by the letter at the beginning of their SURNAME (if they use it) – ignore the use of ‘The’ in a bands name.
up to 13 songs are allowed – fewer if you wish.
All can be the same artist if that represents you perfectly or all the same genre. Just make them great tunes.

make a youtube playlist (if you wish) and link to it – just link to it – don’t overload the thread.

Cut and paste the band names and tracks (in a joyous list style) in the comments.
Then we can chat about the choices – add some waffle if you wish (about how narrow or varied those choices are) … but above all, have fun.

THIS WEEKS LETTER IS: W

      Trust all is well amylee.

    • I was on a late working night so US friendly posting time Amy.
      Didn’t think I’d get to put it up this morning, as I’m in a rush. (I haven’t looked at how to program start times yet – my brain is full).

      fine list to kick us off – back later.

      • couldn’t be easier to schedule a post, Shane. Just use the dropdowns in the top right corner where you click “post”.

  2. I’ll follow with another awesome guitar opener from The White Stripes with Blue Orchid.
    Wheatus – A Little Respect (a cover, but a good one)
    Weezer – Buddy Holly
    A classic from Whitesnake with Is This Love?

    Wilson Phillips – Hold On
    The Waterboys – The Whole Of The Moon
    Howlin’ Wolf – Moanin’ at Midnight

    Think that’s it from me, no playlist as on a very slow inter webs connection but do please check out Whiskeymyers you might like them 🙂

  3. So, this week is W, a letter that should provoke a lot of replies.

    OK, here is my W list. There is a lot of variation here, starting with a trio of Wilsons, before moving on to a Wainwright or two.

    A lot of old favourites here, plus one new discovery, Johnathan Wilson, who I first heard on Mary Ann Hobbs’ Saturday morning 6Music programme about a month ago.

    Once again, lots of missing names here and I am sure that there will be duplicates with other people’s lists.

    Steven Wilson – Harmony Korine
    Jonathan Wilson – Dear Friend
    Brian Wilson – Heroes And Villains
    Rufus Wainwright – April Fools
    Martha Wainwright – You Cheated Me
    Tom Waits – Small Change
    Warpaint – Billie Holiday
    War – Low Rider
    Stevie Wonder – Superstition
    Muddy Waters – Hoochie Coochie Man
    Johnny Winter – Highway 61 Revisited
    The Who – Baba O’Reily
    Wishbone Ash – Throw Down The Sword

    Carole_W_list

  4. What’s going on with YouTube? I’m trying to create a playlist, but it’s not giving me the option of adding videos by URL – it wants me to select from my online storage (?). Anyway:

    Wire – Map Ref. 41N 93W
    White Stripes – Hotel Yorba
    Wilco – She’s A Jar
    The Waterboys – The Whole of the Moon
    Tom Waits – Tom Traubert’s Blues *

    The Wedding Present – Montreal
    The Wonderstuff – Welcome to the Cheap Seats
    Gillian Welch – My Morphine
    Loudon Wainwright – Your Mother And I
    Martha Wainwright – Bloody Motherfucking Asshole
    Rufus Wainwright – Dinner At 8

    * I played this to my Matilda for the first time the other day. She liked it.

  5. Suspect W will be bringing us together as a group. F’rinstance, Tom Waits and The Waterboys are going to show up a lot: they’re both in mine. Glad to see some bluesmen already, which might give me the chance to just dond, and save a nom. Sneaky just saying “Wailers” there, Amy!

    I’ll sort out a running order that doesn’t jar too much later, but the nominees are:

    The Waterboys – Too Close To Heaven, definitely.
    Tom Waits – let’s be topical: You Can Never Hold Back Spring
    Was (Not Was) – oh, so many to choose from ….
    Whitesnake – whatever I choose will be Marsden/Moody era
    Steve Winwood – And I Go, for VERY personal reasons.
    Willard Grant Conspiracy – Kite Flying or Dance With Me? Hmmm.
    Westworld – Silvermac
    Wilco – At Least That’s What You Said, probably.
    Wendy & Lisa will feature somewhere, as should
    The Wild Angels, naturally!
    World Party I can’t get past Ship Of Fools, I don’t think.
    Lucinda Williams – I’ll try to avoid DsD RR asafaerae Come On
    and I’m going to reserve the right to add a thirteenth later, to avoid having to kick myself on my bad leg. Talking of which, time for my Dr’s appointment again. Laters, y’all.

  6. Wow ! What wonders will we winkle out this week I wonder ?
    Here are mine.

    The Wedding Present – This boy can wait ( spiffy !)
    West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band – Transparent Day ( under rated band)
    World of Oz- The Muffin Man ( Muffiny)
    Wreckless Eric – Whole Wide World ( classic chugger)
    The Weirdos – We got the Neutron Bomb ( stonking early punk)
    Wulantoya – Tao ma gan ( Chinese (Mongolian) horse pop)
    Wild Cherry – Play that funky music white boy ( a guilty pleasure)
    We the people – He doesn’t go about it right. ( odd 60s)
    The Watersons – Jolly old hawk ( raw folk)
    White Eyes – Hardcore porn star ( it does play, honest, you just have to wait a bit !)
    Tammy Wynette- Your good girl’s gonna go bad ( Tammy at her best)

  7. Wanna hear what I came up with?

    Lucinda Williams: Those Three Days
    Roddy Woomble: Every Line of a Long Moment

    bish’s elastic W bands

      • Yes (but it’s a bit of a pain in the arse).

        Select “artist” from the search drop down box.

        Type the artist you want in the search box (e.g. David Bowie)

        Select the tracks you want to re-sort. Right click & select “get info”

        Type how you want to sort in the sort artist box (eg: Bowie, David) & hit enter.

        Gets even more confusing if you use album artist as well.

  10. Well funky

    Joyce Williams – The First Thing I Do In The Morning
    Gloria Walker – You Hit The Spot Baby
    Wagon Christ – Crazy Disco Party
    Viola Wills – Sweetback

    Betty Wright – I Love The Way You Love

    Waxdoctor – Atmospheric Funk
    Hannah Williams & The Tastemakers – Do Whatever Makes You Feel Hot
    Bobby Womack – Everything Gonna Be Alright
    Wu-Tang Clan: The Heart Gently Weeps
    Junior Wells – Ships On The Ocean (live at Theresa’s Lounge, Chicago)
    Marva Whitney & James Brown – Sunny

    • Glad you enjoyed. Yes, Marva and James have great chemistry – her brassy, fiery screams were a good match for his grunts. On Sunny tho, they bring out the mellower sensual side of each other, but it still packs a spicy punch.

      We have a few overlaps in our list this week, which is nice. Love your choices.

  11. the wedding present – my favourite dress
    the wolfhounds – LA juice
    the wild flowers – it ain’t so easy
    the wolfgang press – heart of stone
    wire – used to
    wheat – slow fade
    wilco – she’s a jar
    the wrens – she sends kisses
    wye oak – civilian
    the walkmen – in the new year
    weezer – say it ain’t so
    the warlocks – isolation
    the woodentops – move me

    van W’s

    • I know it’s ‘the wrong way round’ but I keep meaning to try and like (or at least listen to) Wye Oak as I covet one of their t-shirts. The one with the rather intellectual-looking deer in specs on it.

      • i put that wye oak track on a past best of year cd and it’s a part of me now. quite a mellow album. in fact this list looks a little mellow for me with the odd exception. it almost looks like the alphabet has burnt me out – in a good way of course.

        i like band t shirts but i think my mrs believes i’m too old to wear them now. simon pegg’s sisters of mercy tshirt in the world’s end would have inspired me to go back to goth if only i still had the hair carry it off. reminds me that i should have checked out some Whigs tracks this week!

      • I think you can pull it off no problem, Bish. It’s not quite the same thing as the local guy here in his 40s/50s with 5 kids who wears a glittery Ed Hardy skull tee. Ed doesn’t look so good on aging hipster female designers in their 50s either. (Somehow no one seems to be able to tell them this though.)

    • my favourite dress was my top Wedding Pres’ choice – luckily I have a couple more tunes to choose from (not that that matters in this game – but it’s great to have variety).

      I already have different Wolfgang Press and Walkmen choices – what brilliant taste you have.

      • lol, that’s very kind of you! we all like what we like is all i can say. i’ve liked the walkmen since their first album, and i’ve most of their stuff. really i should have picked something from that album as it’s the one i like best, but in the new year is a bit special with those guitars.

        my favourite dress was a guaranteed friday night indie dancefloor jump around!

    • you have to do a list for this challenge 🙂 was wondering where you were. DIdn’t know you were a Zombie fan too, i think that makes it me, you, and Lambre.

      • I like some of their tunes, especially songs like this one and Dragula with the drill sergeant cadence that they often employed.

        I never got too much into the whole slasher-horror-comic book-sci fi marketing – never really went in for any of those things individually either. But when you’re 25, still pimply-faced, working a dead end job you hate, still living at home with mum and dad, and thus having to go to church thrice weekly, any song that starts with a cheerful “I just said ‘Up yours, baby!'” feels like it was made just for you.

  12. I’ll have some Wyatt, some more Wyatt, and a bit of Winwood, Wonder, Weather Report, Waits, Winehouse and Wolf, please. Then a bit more Wyatt.

    I’ll resist the temptation to point out that a particular G band were originally called The Warlocks. Although the fact that they billed themselves as ‘Formerly The Warlocks’ for a couple of shows in October ’89 would have opened that door….
    (I seem not to have resisted the temptation.)

    • Lal Waterson – Piper’s Way
      Fred Wedlock – Handier Household Help
      The Waterboys – The Whole of the Moon
      Dionne Warwick – Walk on By
      Fats Waller – Your Feet’s Too Big
      The Who – Behind Blue Eyes
      Tom Waits – Chocolate Jesus
      The Weather Girls – It’s Raining Men
      White Stripes – I Smell A Rat
      Rachel Unthank and the Winterset – Blackbird
      Muddy Waters – Got My Mojo Working
      Bob Marley and the Wailers – Jammin’
      Chris Wood – One in a Million

      • I reserve the right to also nominate Bob Marley under M and of course Rachel Unthank and the Winterset eventually became The Unthanks – which as U is likely to be a bit sparse seem a bit of a cert for that list1

    • Apologise for following Lal Waterson’s haunting Piper’s Way with a ribald song by Fred Wedlock, which has quite a long spoken introduction. It still makes me laugh, and I love the Bristol accent. The final Chris Wood song is kind of a tall tale….you may go ‘ahhhh’ and wipe away a tear at the end of it. Or you may not!

      • Adding some waffle….well, the Lal Waterson Bright Phoebus album was new to me and a revalation – so was the recent gig by her daughter and various other artists. Lal’s songs have quite a strange and different feel about them that i like – this was a favourite.
        Fred Wedlock always makes me smile, lovely man, now ssdly no longer with us. The rest are all fairly well known, except for the last one, which I’ve already mentioned.

  13. I’m so glad someone went for Too Late (recent earworm of mine, as it happens) – I nixed it from my list at the last minute as it was getting a bit Northern Soul heavy!

  14. Possibly a bit conventional this week…

    The Who: I Can See For Miles
    Roger Waters: 5.01 am (Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking Part 10)
    Marcin Wasilewski Trio: Ballad of the Sad Young Men
    Weather Report: Black Market
    Tony Williams Lifetime: Emergency
    Bobby Womack: Across 110th Street
    Whitesnake: Ain’t No Love in the Heart of the City
    Kim Wilde: Cambodia
    Cassandra Wilson: Tupelo Honey
    Mari Wilson: Just What I Always Wanted

  15. The Who – Substitute
    Tom Waits – Kentucky Avenue
    The Wedding Present – Brassneck
    Wreckless Eric – WWW
    The Walker Bros – The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore
    The Wrens – She Sends Kisses
    Wire – Dot Dash
    Robert Wyatt – Shipbuilding
    Dinah Washington – Mad About the Boy
    The Wonderstuff – Like a Merry go round
    Bobby Womack – If You Think You’re Lonely Now

  16. “add some waffle if you wish (about how narrow or varied those choices are) “

    I think you say something like this every week and yet no one really seems to take it up. So i will – although i think it seems kind of obvious – i think my lists are probably about as (yawningly) mainstream as they come. But i still like them, although if i had the time to search out more music they’d be less boring i think. (I’d probably vote Ubu and Panth for most eclectic)

  17. I’d probably vote Ubu and Panth for most eclectic

    Is that a good thing ? If so – Thanks, if not- OI !
    I just like what I like.Nothing wrong with your list at all ( except for White Zombie…and a couple of others !) , most of them are in my collection somewhere too.
    I guess I just get bored easily, I still like The Stones and Howlin’ Wolf and all that kind of stuff too, it’s just that, for choice, I tend to like “funny” ( to me) stuff and something with a bit of the “crazy” factor.
    And I’m always one for the underdog ( as in my avatar here, she’s definitely an underdog).

    • it’s totally a good thing. I wish i had the time and brainspace to look further afield more often. As to the Zombie – i take pride in liking rubbish and try to get at least one or two of my rubbish and unloved by none but me tunes on my list each week. They’re my underdogs 🙂

  18. Wishbone ash the king will come
    Wolf killiong floor
    Waters whole lotta love
    Junior wells
    Weather Report This is This ( feat. Carlo Santana )
    Alan While Spring Song of Innocence from Ram
    Wings Jet
    Who who are you

    Wombles hall of the mountain womble
    Toyah(wilcox) itth a mythtery

      • ‘ere I forget Peter wylie. story of the blues. or the Wah Heat thing about a thousand something doing something or other
        and the Wailers stir it up. muddy .. maybe prefer she’s nineteen

      • Phew! Had a moment of sheer panic then at Alfie’s mention of Pete Wylie.
        But then recovered my cool when I realised:
        (1) I still have slot #13 available, and
        (2) Heart As Big As Liverpool is credited to The [M for] Mighty Wah!.

  19. Wubble-Woos are a bit of a desert both in my playlist and my memory. Managed to drag up 10 ( actually 9 with a double).

    It’s good to see that the Wombles got a mention, thought you lot had forgotten one of the best kids entertainers television has ever produced.

    The Who – Substitute.
    Roger Waters – Sunset Strip.
    Roger Waters – What God Wants Pt 2.
    Scott Walker – Joanna.
    Walker Brothers – No Regrets.
    Dionne Warwick – Walk on By.
    Robert Wyatt – Shipbuilding.
    Jeff Wayne – Eve of the War.
    Andy Williams – Can’t Get Used to Losing You.
    Mark Wynter – Venus in Blue Jeans.
    .

    Back later with link.

  20. So elastic bands W – a pretty easy list for me this time some bands that will never leave me:

    Wham Rap! (Enjoy What You Do?) Wham! – the album Wham! fantastic is still a pop classic – I can sing most lines from every song 32 years later.
    Go Out And Get ‘Em Boy! The Wedding Present
    sheer genius – the pure essence of outsider poetry with really jangly guitars –
    Louis XIV The Wolfgang Press
    joint fav band EVER – all of their career from dark gothic beginnings to thumping base lines – they are just genius.
    Love in the time of Ecstacy Withered Hand
    the album that pinpointed a sudden loss of clarity – with perfect ease and brilliant lines “save me from the wave machine and transparent bikini” bliss.
    A walk in the dark Whitey
    I like this man so much – me and 400 others have funded his new album – think he’s getting a deal to produce it to it’s full potential too.
    Lost in Boston – The Walkmen
    hard choice between this and the rat – and many others – but a band I just adore, it’s that believing in what you do and doing it YOUR way that just does it for me.

    Just Like a Drummer The Wave Pictures
    again this is words and the off beat playing that appeals – random, off-kilter – oddities that just mean something in my heart.
    Lindberghs + Metal Birds White Hinterland
    my difficult band – structurally experimental – but not to the extent that it puts me off the purity of their sound – and each album jumps style so much it keeps me on my toes. wonderful.
    Hey You, Yokel’s Son Warsaw Village Band
    ohh – these make me bounce.
    You Are A Runner And I Am My Father’s Son Wolf Parade
    I like an odd voice
    Penny For A Thought Saul Williams
    slam poetry with beats and intelligent viewpoint – perfect.
    Juicy Emily Wells
    I’m not as enamoured after I saw a photo of her shmoozing with the Clintons – it was a neck thing – not the politicians that put me off – but I still like her music.
    Hooting & Howling Wild Beasts
    very individual
    Requiem M. Ward
    emotional

    I Got Gone (ft. Sage Francis) Buddy Wakefield
    No video otherwise Buddy would be in – but more on the side of Poetry than a band type thing really – but brilliant none-the-less.

      • oh well – I might as well link to the singles:

        elastic bands : W – the singles

        Hobo Humpin’ Slobo Babe Whale
        Heart Stop Wax Tailor
        (Nothing Serious) Just Buggin’ Whistle
        Caterpillar Caterpillar Kira Wiley
        Careful What You Wish For We Fell To Earth
        Oxygen Willy Mason
        Your Woman White Town
        Magic’s Wand Whodini
        Hahaha / On My 19th Why?
        Keep You Wild Belle
        Pessimist Wild Nothing
        Ooh La La The Wiseguys
        For Lovers Wolfman Feat. Peter Doherty
        Home As a Romanticized Concept Where Everyone Loves You Always and Forever Woodpigeon
        Circle Square The Wonder Stuff

        • “Oxygen” is a great shout. I like other things I’ve heard by Willy Mason, but nothing in the same league. I wonder if he’s happy to know he’s written one truly great song, or frustrated that he’ll never write another to match it.

      • it’s NOT that great a shout – it should be under M – whoops – long day *sigh*

        … but it IS strange because both albums I’ve picked up (£1 each at the library sales) are full of very lovely tracks – but Oxygen is one of those that pinpointed the zeitgeist when released; so overshadows the rest…
        as an artist he will have his own favourites or always think the next song will be the greatest – I think when you are the one that produces it – you do not look at it as ‘The One’ otherwise you’d give up.

        my NEXT bit of design will always be the best – no matter how competent the last bit was – the ideas are always feverishly eating away at you to produce ‘the one’ – thankfully you never do that in your own mind..

        • True dat (makes a mental note to save it for M week). And the rest of what you say is true too. Though I always wince a bit when you hear a band who were great 15 years ago talk about how their new record is their best yet.

      • I think it depends on what type of band they are – more experimental bands who would be deemed ‘artists’ are pushing boundaries and trying to re-invent and develop their craft… where-as some bands vomit out an album in teenage/20’s angst mode – without really knowing what they are doing – but produce greatness almost by accident… they then try to make a career out of reproducing those highs.

        The other thing would be age related – we think the stuff 15 years ago is the best (25 years ago in my case) – but a 15 year old might hear the newest album now – think it’s wonderful, then have the entire back catalogue to seep themselves in. But – that first exposure, is often ‘the one’ that stays and has a hold over any so called better quality tracks. It’s the emotional response rather than a purely technical response.

  21. Phoned-in results for W:
