Snow Bud and the Flower People- Killer Bud plus Third Shelf

Sub Pop Singles Club, August 1993

Look, if you can't figure it out from the Mad Magazine like artwork, the band name, or the album title, this is music for and by stoners.

"Killer Bud" is a long, slow jam with 60's-ish fuzzy guitar sounds, accompanied by a mellow, lazy sounding vocal track. It's everything you'd expect and oh, so much more.

"Third Shelf" is a bit more aggressive. The early 70's rock sounds are still there, but Snow Bud sings like a man who can't find his stash, and the song drifts into some crazy prog-rock thing for a moment.

Didjits - Dear Junkie

November 1993 Sub Pop Singles Club

Straight up Chicago punk rock, noisy and fast. The B-sides are live tracks, which shows off some of their stage banter, something they had a reputation for.

By the way, I've been DJing a bit over at turntable.fm under the entirely predictable name of Daily 7 lately. I usually throw a song or two from the blog up while I'm there, so check it out if you get the chance.

A: Dear Junkie
B: Skull Baby, Fire in the Hole
