elastic bands – this week: C


There’s stories of the City and stories of the C this week
The game to illustrate either:
How wildly eclectic your taste is… or,
How perfectly streamlined it is.

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.

  1. usa friendly time again. So this week is hard because it’s too easy, almost. So mainstream as fuck for me i reckon, but some bands and tunes are just too good.

    Cult – She Sells Sanctuary
    Cure – Just Like Heaven
    Counting Crows – A Murder of One
    Elvis Costello – Less than Zero
    Clash – This is Radio Clash
    Chambers Bros – Time
    Sam Cooke – Bring it on Home to Me
    E*** C****** – Let it Grow (i’ll leave the band to the rest of y’all with donds)
    CSNY – Carry On
    CSN – Guinnevere
    Julian Cope – Head Hang Low
    Bill Callahan – Small Plane
    Lenny – Halleujah (prefer some covers though)

  2. Couldn’t sleep – here’s the playlist

    This was the hardest one yet, because I could easily have had a 31-play list instead of a baker’s dozen. Rosemary Clooney missed out because I couldn’t find any of the songs I wanted on youtube, the likes of Ray Charles and Johnny Cash will surely make other people’s lists, Roger Chapman I haven’t listened to in too long… so here’s ten off the top of my head. This week I’m offering a crooner, a couple of singer-songwriters, one to get you dancing, the song that was my introduction to Chumbawamba, my favourite song ever and one song which will likely make a second appearance another week.

    Nat King Cole – Out Of An Orange-Coloured Sky
    Cream – Strange Brew
    CCR – Bad Moon Rising
    Ry Cooder – Vigilante Man
    Crosby Stills & Nash – Wooden Ships
    Jim Croce – Time In A Bottle
    Amelia Curran – The Mistress
    Chumbawamba – She’s Got All The Friends That Money Can Buy
    Cat Empire – Hello
    Carolina Chocolate Drops – Hit ‘Em Up Style
    Coeur de Pirate – Place de la République
    Camille – Ta Douleur
    Eliza Carthy – Willow Tree

  3. Deep Joy ! A reason to while away an hour or so….heavy 60s vibe this week, man.

    1 The Cake – You can have him ( sound a bit wobbly but check “her” out ! ( you’ll see who I mean when you watch it, fantastic performance !)

    2 Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – Love letter ( Beautifully simple and simply beautiful, one of the few songs that really moves my hardened, black soul).

    3 Camper Van Beethoven- Take the skinheads bowling ( Classic)

    4 Canned Heat – Let’s work together (also a classic)

    5 Charlie the Hamster- Bible stories ( I wanted to include his version of the 10 commandments but it’s not on Youtube so this will have to do, a singing hamster).

    6 Chocolate Watchband- Are you gonna be there ( at the love in ) ? ( Raucous stonesalike)

    7 Captain Beefheart – Yellow Brick Road ( so many to choose from, this;ll do)

    8 The Church Mice – Babe, we’re not part of society ( why doesn’t everyone love this one as much as I do ? I can’t understand it).

    9 Circle Jerks – Wild in the street ( Brilliant blast of hardcore)

    10 The Clique – I am superman ( as covered by R.E.M, I like the original best).

    11 Count Five – You must believe me ( Fuzzy little blast of 60s joy).

    12 Cramps – Journey to the center of a girl ( Oh that tremolo ! Lovely !)

    13 Crystal Chandelier – Suicidal flowers. ( Oh that fuzz, great, some people thought this was Jim Morrison singing, it isn’t).

    • the Clique is a great tune. Canned Heat’s On the Road Again nearly made my list. I’m an anomaly around these parts i guess as i have never fallen in love with Nick Cave. I’ll give the one you posted a listen.

    • Can’t believe I neglected Mr Cave, I was only listening to him all of last evening! That is a good song too, not one I listen to much, but I should do more. Gotta love a bit of Cramps too, RIP Lux.

        • had an iTunes nightmare today, the whole library disappeared and I had to download it from my iPod, so I’ve been a bit distracted, he is my fave, but I think of him as Nick 😉

  4. storm in a C cup

    Calibro 35 – Vendetta
    Baby Charles – Back Of My Hand
    Hollie Cook – That Very Night
    The Carstairs – It Really Hurts Me Girl
    The Cavaliers – Hold On To My Baby
    Cornell Campbell – Jah Jah Me No Born Yah
    Cookin On 3 Burners – Cars
    Lyn Collins – Me And My Baby Got A Good Thing Going
    Bootsy Collins – I’d Rather Be With You
    Charles B – Lack of Love
    Julian Cope – Love L.U.V. (Beautiful Love remix)
    Cherry Ghost – 4am
    Johnny Clarke – Moving On To Zion

  5. Clash – Complete Control
    Culture – Pirate Days
    Elvis Costello – Almost Blue
    Olivia Chaney – King’s Horses
    Leonard Cohen – Suzanne
    Kevin Coyne – Eastbourne Ladies
    Cure – 10.15 Saturday Night
    Communards – You Are My World
    Nat “King” Cole – When I Fall In Love
    John Cooper Clarke – Beasley Street
    Mary Coughlan – Seduced
    Martin Carthy – The Devil and the Feathery Wife
    Eva Cassidy – Over the Rainbow


    Quite a white list with a lot of sentimentality I think.

  6. Well, this is it…..originally I did wonder whether to make an entire list of Leonard Cohen, but no….however, you’ve got him twice, a later one and an earlier one. You’ve also got John Cale twice, once with Lou Reed, once without. There were a few other artists I considered, but in the end went for songs I really liked.

    Johnny Cash – Folsom Prison Blues
    Leonard Cohen In My Secret Life
    Nick Cave Straight To You
    Elvis Costello – It’s Been A Good Year For The Roses
    John Cale – Magritte
    Sam Cooke – Wonderful World
    Martin Carthy – The Famous Flower of Serving Men
    Leonard Cohen – Sisters of Mercy
    The Cure – Friday I’m In Love
    John Cale (with Lou Reed) Style It Takes
    Tracy Chapman – Talkin’ Bout a Revolution
    Petula Clark – Downtown
    Jimmy Cliff – You Can Get It If You Really Want

    • Agree fairly spoilt for choice with C – nearly always find that there’s something or someone I’ve forgotten. Some I did consider perhaps I shall regret not including! The Cash song still sounds so good, and that line, ‘ I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die’ – classic. As for Len, so many to choose from…! Love the drama of Nick Cave’s Straight to You, also love Elvis Costello’s lyrics, Sam Cooke’s happy optimism, the dramatic tale of The Famous Flower of Serving men – it’s long, but stick with it – the ditsyness of Friday I’m in Love, John Cale playing that viola (wonderful sound) and singing about a favourite artist, and again accompanying himself on the piano with Lou on guitar and one of those wonderful melodies of theirs that are so distinctive. Tracy Chapman dreams of revolution, Petula Clark conjures up the feeling of being young and going out on the town to ‘forget all your troubles.’ Then optimism, positivity, and a happy sound from Jimmy. A bit of a mix of happy and sad.

  7. John Cale, Captain Beefheart and Ry Cooder (on his own or with almost anybody else) tracks could easily keep me going for a while. But there’s also a couple of Cream songs (where EC isn’t too prominent – e.g. We’re Going Wrong), a few from Catatonia and Elvis Costello (particularly fond of New Amsterdam for its wordplay), probably CSNY’s Our House, some Coltrane, The Charlatans (the Brit scallies, that is)….

    I could probably even put a list together for this week…..

    • I was waiting on Bish and barbryn for the Charlatans – didn’t know you were a fan too. Any other week Alice Cooper would have been on my list, but as i was in a mellow mood all i felt like last night was the Left Banke – Pretty Ballerina cover. In fact, 4’33 wouldn’t be out of place on my list – all i can hear is wind and storm. Tales of Brave Ulysses would probably be my Cream pick. A David Crosby solo would probably work too.

      • Welcome to my Nightmare is great. For me it probably would have been I Love the Dead, or something off of Billion Dollar Babies. Just wasn’t in a schlocky kind of mood last night. I’m Eighteen might end up on somebody’s list.

  8. All the big hits from all the big hitters for me:

    The Chiffons: Sweet Talkin’ Guy
    Lloyd Cole & The Commotions: Rattlesnakes
    Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds: Papa Won’t Leave You, Henry
    The Charlatans: Tellin’ Stories
    Julian Cope: Elegant Chaos
    The Church: Under the Milky Way
    Cocteau Twins: Ice Blink Luck
    The Cure: In Between Days
    Elvis Costello: Good Year for the Roses
    Glen Campbell: Wichita Lineman
    Johnny Cash: I See A Darkness
    Crowded House: Better Be Home Soon
    Celia Cruz: Te Busco

    bish’s elastic C bands

    • Wichita Lineman very nearly made my list, so a definite dond. Under the Milky Way is lovely too, but not quite a contender for my list. Cocteaus are in with Nick Cave for me, never quite got them.

      • I must admit I didn’t really get the Cocteaus until Liz Frazer began singing semi-comprehensibly. But that also probably coincided with me reaching an age at which I could appreciate them (or wanted to anyway – I was desperate to be indie-cool in my late teens).

      • she does have a lovely voice, but most of their songs, i feel like, cut the crap with all the layering and just let her sing, like, words or something, dammit.

      • So we have! “Straight to You” was on my list of possibles for Nick Cave too – Henry’s Dream is such a great album.

    • Great songs in there! I wish, when they’d remastered the albums, they’d de-prettified Henry’s Dream, it’s just a little too easy on the ear for me, but the songs are fabulous.

    • sorta why i was hoping this game was going to be on Tuesdays. Wednesday only really gives a day – then it’s Thursday and onto a new list and topic on the mothership.

      • I think Beth was the only one who expressed a preference – I thought the ‘he said she said – A to Z’ was going to be on a Tuesday and I didn’t want people missing out on that as Sakura and pairubu put in loads of work doing it.
        Didn’t really want it over thought – mostly to stop ME doing mega lists – heehee. I will get there.

  9. As already mentioned a lot, C is almost too big a pond to fish in!

    Taking a deep breath, and purely from memory, the artists that I can guarantee I care for deeply before needing to pause are:

    Phil Campbell, Creed, Marc Cohn, The Clash, Cry Of Love, Carmel, The Cult, Cowboy Junkies, Calexico, Cocteau Twins, Johnny Cash, China Crisis, Chris Cornell, Cameo, Cornershop, Ry Cooder, Chemical Brothers, Counting Crows, Nick Cave … * gasp! *

    How many was that?

    And actually, I already know because I’ve been listening to some faves this morning, that the single SONG with the most plays from a C-artist in my iTunes collection is this one

  10. Ha! Just read upwards, and intended to list the artists nommed by others that gave me a D’OH! moment, but there’s already TMTM.

    Back later . . .

  11. Initial thoughts…

    Neneh Cherry: the new Blank Project album, which gets better every time I listen to it.
    John Coltrane: A Love Supreme
    Conquering Animal Sound: On Floating Bodies
    Cream: Crossroads
    Anna Calvi: Anna Calvi
    Chic: Le Freak (single)
    Cardigans: Lovefool (single)
    Captain and Tennille: Love Will Keep Us Together (single)
    Mary Chapin Carpenter: Come On Come On
    Sam Cooke: A Change is Gonna Come (single)

    Have to go and give a lecture; may be back with more later…

  12. The Clash – 1977
    Arthur Conley – Sweet Soul Music
    Culture – Behold The Land
    Glen Campbell – Wichita Linesman
    Counting Crows – The Long December
    Chicago – 25 or 6 to 4
    Elvis Costello – Alison
    The Candyskins – Mrs Hoover
    Nick Cave – Love Letter
    Edwyn Collins – Forsooth
    John Cooper Clark – Daily Express (You Never See a Nipple In)
    Jimmy Cliff – Many Rivers to Cross
    Alice Cooper – I’m Eighteen

  13. Leonard Cohen, Celia Cruz, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Tracy Chapman et al, I hang my head in shame (actually, I did consider Celia Cruz for a short moment, but I got distracted)

  14. When I saw that this week was the letter ‘c’ my first thoughts were “there’s loads of them”. And as my mind delved into it’s murky past, I realised that many of the songs I remembered were from the 60’s. So here they are with the year of release.

    Floyd Cramer (1961) – On the Rebound.
    Sam Cooke (1961) – Cupid.
    Chubby Checker (1962) – Let’s Twist Again.
    Ray Charles (1962) – I Can’t Stop Loving You.
    Chantays (1963) – Pipeline.
    Cascades (1963) – Rhythm of the Rain.
    Roy C (1966) – Shotgun Wedding.
    Cher (1966) – Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down).
    Cream (1967) – Strange Brew.
    Petula Clark (1967) – Don’t Sleep in the Subway.
    Canned Heat (1968) – On the Road Again.
    Glen Campbell (1969) – Galveston.
    Creedence Clearwater Revival (1969) – Proud Mary.

  18. Had to make a few tough choices this time. By the way, do I win the prize for the most “streamlined” selection of the week?

    playlist HERE for C

    amylee | March 26, 2014 at 9:25 pm
    dunno what’s up with that, it keeps linking to GF’s post for some reason. I’ll try for you – (all sorted now).

    wyngatecarpenter | March 26, 2014 at 10:24 pm
    Thanks! No f***ing idea what’s going on here, I’m doing exactly the same as previous weeks.

    Thanks, that looks more like it!

    The C List

    The Clash – London’s Burning: there were one or two obvious favourites of mine, I went for another choice instead which I think sets the tone nicely

    Chelsea – Look At The Outside: their best record! Fact! Better than the more famous Right To Work by a long chalk

    Cock Sparrer – Riot Squad: the guvnors of Oi, this is as good as introduction as any

    Case – Bosco’s Pigeon: ska-punk British style, recently disintered from an 80s demo tape graveyard.

    Cravats – Rub Me Out : jazz punk paranoia produced by Penny Rimbaud from Crass, oe of my favourite ever records

    Crisis – Bruckwood Hospital: late 70s rabble rousers go a bit jerky and post-punk

    Cult Maniax – Cities: Devonshire yokels, did several records but for some reason their best track (this one) got buried away on a various artists album

    Chineapple Punx – Braindead: like a lot of d.i.y stuff from the 90s this sounds very cheap but does have some nice violin in the middle. One of the most entertainig live bands on the scene at the time though.

    Court Martial – Gotta Get Out: the essence of young oiks getting up and having a go, in the 80s you can almost smell the cheap cider

    Chaos UK – King For A Day:”skint for a fortnight” punk dole anthem 90s style. A well known punk was once photographed speaking to Ian Duncan Smith who was on a factory visit, while wearing the t-shirt. I ca’t help wondering if it started IDS off on his campaig against benefit “scroungers”

    Criminal Class – Fighting The System: Oi! Oi! ad Oi! again. With the merest hint of reggae

    Contempt – Self Abuser: a band who’ve been around since the mid-80s but their peak I reckon was the mid-90s, which is whe this is from

    Conflict – Mighty & Superior: often dismissed as bog standard punk, very wrong i my view. Punk yes, but musically a cut above nearly all their contemporaries as I think this track shows. Live they tend to sound like a chainsaw, a load of bricks, and a rotweiler chucked into a cement mixer though.

  19. No time for a full playlist I’m afraid – am posting from a strangers flat (doing the AirBnB thing) in Stockholm – but it would deffo include:

    Chicks on Speed
    Ornette Coleman
    Colin L. Orchestra
    Computer Cougar
    Bill Callahan
    The Carnabeats
    Chance the Rapper

  20. Alice Cooper – School’s Out – (because I loved it when it was originally released)
    Canned Heat – Going Up The Country – (because “On The Road Again” is already taken)
    Chemical Brothers – Otter Rock – (just because)
    Chickenshack – I’d Rather Go Blind – (just stunning)
    Civil Wars – The Violet Hour – (contrast to the first 4)
    Coldplay – Parachutes – (just to annoy people)
    Counting Crows – Rain King – (anthemic)
    Cream – Sunshine of Your Love (& ‘cos Amylee had “Let It Grow”)
    Crowded House – She Goes On – (for Mother’s Day)
    Cuban Brothers – Ace of Spades – (‘cos it’s great (thanks Shoey))
    Eliza Carthy & the Kings of Calicutt – (Fisher Boy (for DebbyM))
    Jim Croce – I’ll Have To Say I Love You In A Song – (love his voice)
    The Cars – Just What I Needed – (takes me back to bedsit land)
    Vikki Clayton – Sweets For My Sweet – (uplifting)

    That’s 14 with C*ldpl*y and I’ve missed Caravan; CSN; Mark Cohn and countless others: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/hozygzg41c6ulpz/C88w11UCsf

  21. Sod it! Let’s do it:

    Francis Cabrel – La Corrida, the vid I linked to above.
    Phil Campbell – Evangeline,
    Creed – Faceless Man,
    Marc Cohn – either True Companion or The Things We’ve Handed Down,
    Carmel – J’Oublierai Ton Nom probably, with Johnny Hallyday,
    The Cult – Resurrection Joe,
    Cowboy Junkies – Strange Language, thereby referencing Vic Chesnutt,
    Calexico – All Systems Red,
    Johnny Cash – Hurt, with apologies for stating the bleedin’ obvious,
    China Crisis – Christian, reminds me of school days in Liverpool,
    Cameo – Word Up!,
    Cornershop – Who Fingered Rock & Roll?, and finally
    Chemical Brothers – The Sunshine Underground

    Won’t be in that order if I do get round to making a YT playlist.

    So that means the Cocteaux, Chicken Shack, Nick Cave, Chris Cornell, The Clash & Counting Crows miss out. Crippled Black Phoenix, Cab Calloway, Candi Staton, Centro-Matic, Cheap Trick, Collective Soul, Comsat Angels, etc., etc., etc. never even got a look IN!!

    And no-one’s mentioned The Carpenters . . . .

    • That would have been my Johnny Cash pick too. And Cameo – an astute observer may have noticed i chose a different Korn tune – figured their Cameo cover wouldn’t have gone over too well here.

      Other donds from earlier – Chicago (fine pick, i would have also gone for Saturday in the Park or Wishing You Were Here), Bell Bottom Blues (technically a D in my book, i have others on deck there too), Petula Clark. Nearly went for We Love You to shoehorn another Stones tune, but i figured Wyngate would have Cock Sparrer covered.

      Still no Cranberries, Cradle of Filth (?!), Conflict…

      Also (Duane Allman and) Cowboy – Please Be With Me.

    • I spent half the morning yesterday listening to/trying to whittle down Carpenters songs. My conclusion was that, somewhat unusually, they have great verses and disappointing (overly cheesy) choruses.

    • How did I guess that Creed track would feature 🙂

      Donds for Hurt and Chemical Brothers, that leaves me Galvanize when I get round to finalising my 13.

      Back later.

  22. Commenting before reading others’ lists:

    Camera Obscura – Lloyd, I’m Ready To Be Heartbroken
    The Clash – White Man in Hammersmith Palais
    Carter USM – Sheriff Fatman
    The Charlatans – North Country Boy
    Crowded House – Fall At Your Feet
    The Cardigans – Daddy’s Car
    Cornershop – Good To Be On The Road Back Home Again
    Clap Your Hands Say Yeah – By the Skin of My Yellow Country Teeth
    Cocteau Twins – Heaven Or Las Vegas
    The Cure – In Between Days
    The Coral – Pass It On
    Cowboy Junkies – To Live Is To Fly

    • Playlist taking shape, don’t know the final way it will go but it will include some blues, some rock, some new country, some old country, some 80’s, a female soloist, definitely The Chemical Brothers and possibly some twerking! ! !

  23. oh – mine off the top of a very stressed head would be something like:

    The Kiss The Cure
    Stuff The Jubilee (1977) Carter USM
    Assise Camille
    True Skool (Zomby Remix) Coldcut
    Hot Doggie Colourbox
    Civilization Street Culture Shock
    Take The Skinheads Bowling Camper Van Beethoven/Teen Angst (What The World Needs now) Cracker
    Toby take a bow Casiotone For The Painfully Alone
    Dive Cardiacs
    ‘Cause Cheap Is How I Feel Cowboy Junkies
    Books Written For Girls Camera Obscura
    The Owl of Love Clogs
    Everybody Knows Lenny Cohen

    • just thinking of tracks I like would send me crazy wondering if they’ve done enough to be included in the major body of work section:
      Bruises Chairlift
      Tourist Woman Cass McCombs
      I Want More CAN
      Black Mags Cool Kids
      Good Morning Blues // Real Tuesday Weld Clerkenwell Remix Count Basie
      The Unelected President Crass (with sample of E.P. Thomson)
      Mama, I’m Swollen Cursive
      All Things To All Men Cinematic Orchesta Feat. Roots Manuva
      Let’s Make Love And Listen To Death From Above Cansei De Ser Sexy
      Dig Your Own Hole The Chemical Brothers
      I Promise Never To Get Paint On My Glasses Again (1) cLOUDDEAD
      Terrible Angels CocoRosie
      High School Lover Cayucas
      Hands Free The Chap

    • Ooh, I love Civilisation Street and The Kiss. I saw CSS live in Bristol a few years back, like a kids party in all the good ways, balloons, tinsel, lovefoxx, it was a riot of loveliness. Hope your head gets less stressed.

  24. Oh so difficult.

    Commiserations to John Coltrane, The Cult (Love Removal Machine), J.J. Cale, CCR, even The Corrs had a chance.

    The final 13:

    Well the opener is so energetic it will Galvanize you – none other than the song I’ve been trailing from The Chemical Brothers.

    Next up a fresh faced ‘rock’ band that appeared in 1999 had a quite brilliant first album a dud as the second and then faded away during the mid 2000’s. The Calling and the song for this list Could It Be Any Harder?

    Turning to some ‘new’ country – Eric Church – Jack Daniels, oh, why didn’t this crop up when I did RRSA Whiskey????

    The fantastic Dolores and The Cranberries – Linger, as I have done and pondered what to include and what to discard, am really regretting excluding The Cult 😦

    I mentioned the possibility of some twerking, well not really but here is Miley Cyrus singing one of her godmother’s songs and “my”-ley she can’t half sing.

    Back to RRSA Whiskey and good to see her figure in last week’s A-List – Mary Coughlan and Whisky Didn’t Kill The Pain – awesome.

    So after that much whisky how about some Codeine Velvet Club and Hollywood?

    A ‘C’ that I thought my figure, here’s Guy Clark and Immigrant Eyes (so many to choose from but this is a great tune).

    To another Clark and this time it’s Gary Clark Jr. who in my opinion, humble as it is is quite frankly an awesome guitarist – Bright Lights.

    Well it’s Friday I’m In Love and The Cure.

    So many to choose from for this next artist, I’ll select My Own Prison by Creed but it could so easily have been 13 from them alone.

    Another artist that figured this week and could have filled an entire list on his own it’s The Man In Black and Ballad of Ira Hayes.

    David Allan Coe and The Devil Went Down To Jamaica, couldn’t think of who to give the thirteenth spot to and this seemed a fitting bit of fun to end with.


  25. Gimme a “c”:

    Julian Cope (18)
    Can (17)
    Cabaret Voltaire (16)

    Elvis Costello (14)
    Nick Cave (13)
    A Certain Ratio (13)
    Edwyn Collins (13)
    Cocteau Twins (11)

    Chemical Brothers (9)
    Johnny Cash (8)
    Clash (8)
    Coldplay (8)
    Colourbox (8)
    Chameleons (7)
    Cowboy Junkies (7)

  26. Here is my belated C list

    Starting off with a couple of belters, I soon take things down to mellow with CSN, and JJ Cale, then a bit of blues and some white. Then we get into the hot-rod and head off to Manhattan, then Hammersmith via Jamaica, a bit of revolution, stopping off in Las Vegas and finishing up in Folsom Prison.

    JJ Cale – After Midnight
    Ry Cooder – Vigilante Man
