This week on I’m Smarter Than You Radio

What with New Order breaking up (again), I figure we should send them off with a bang. As such, this week there will be a TON of New Order tunage. Really, a ridiculous amount of music. I bet well over half of the songs on the stream will be by them.  To listen, go to …

This week on I’m Smarter Than You Radio

This week we will be featuring the music of That Petrol Emotion. I’m not sure why they never broke through like other mid-80’s British alternative acts like New Order, The Jesus and Mary Chain, or The Cure. They had a unique sound that was generally accessible and had enough pop sensibilities to turn out the …

I only ever had these albums on tape and they are great afro-influenced jams, definitely the best of the Thompson Twins when they were more interested in exploring …

This week on I’m Smarter Than You Radio

This week we’re going with the Thompson Twins. Discard your thoughts of lighthearted 80’s new wave pop. These guys were really damn good, though they kind of lost it during their later sell out period (the albums “Big Trash” and “Queer” sort of sucked). The highly overlooked “Close to the Bone” may have been their best. Unfortunately, …
