Featured heavily in today's exclusive interview with former Guns N' Roses manager Vicky Hamilton, and with a song ('Surf Narcs') featured on a new surf compilation album - 'Radical Waves' from Deep Eddy Records - set for release this coming week, what better time to catch up with Robbie Quine, front...err....thing with The Barbarellatones? Read on as Robbie lists a suitably cool ultimate thirteen song mixtape to die for.....
1.) 'Orgasmatron' - Motorhead (from the album of the same name)
Just dig the hypnotic benzo-y vibe!
2.) 'Sorrow' - David Bowie (from the album 'Pin-Ups')
Probably my favorite cover of all time. No one can 'Dark Croon' like Bowie!
3.) 'God Only Knows' - The Beach Boys (from the album 'Pet Sounds')
Like them or not, the best harmonies in rock. Always passes my goose-bump test.
4.) 'The Calling' - Death In June (from the album 'Nada!')
Love the flanger!
5.) 'Baby's On Fire' - Eno (from the album 'Here Come The Warm Jets')
Robert Fripp's solo sounds and feels like a nightmare, it actually screams like you're on fire! And Eno pulls his dick out and pisses, thereby extinguishing the flames.
6.) 'Venus In Furs' - The Velvet Underground (from the album 'The Velvet Underground & Nico')
7.) 'Candidate' - David Bowie (from the album 'Diamond Dogs')
The dark sci fi glam theme - I'm just a sucker for that shit. This is Bowie's gothiest album, I love it. Creepy-cool!
8.) 'Goo Goo Muck' - The Cramps (from the album 'Psychedelic Jungle')
So B-movie, just a fun song. It's like going to a rockabilly party in a Tuscaloosa graveyard with Frankenstein, Nosferatu and a Werewolf. In other words, really fun.
9.) 'Blue Jay Way' - The Beatles (from the album 'Magical Mystery Tour')
I was 8 when I heard this, and my imagination was already pretty other-worldly. I liked the tribal psychedelic feel of it. Very druggy and dreamy, but beautiful too.
10.) 'Spirit In The Sky' - Norman Greenbaum (from the album of the same name)
This song feels like you're in a cult lead by a Jesus Freak on LSD...the guitar sounds like a crabby old growling mountain lion. I also get a sweet Native American feeling about The Great Spirit in the Sky, and opens my Chakras!
11.) 'The River Song' - Donovan (from the album 'The Hurdy Gurdy Man')
I think Donovan inspired T Rex, who I love. Psychedic folk, just a pretty song...love the drone.
12.) 'Violence' - Mott The Hoople (from the album 'Mott')
Has a weird Clockwork Orange vibe to it!
13.) 'I'm So Free' - Lou Reed (from the album 'Transformer')
The whole fuckin' album rocks...Mick Ronson tears it up on guitar and Bowie's production is killer.
