MICK’S TAPE VOL. 3 | I’m No Fool, I Know You’re Cool

click to listen

On his third installment, Mick continues to do his homework so we don’t have to. While he keeps a well-rounded schedule, most of his assignments are stuffed loosely inside of a mid-eighties Trapper Keeper. His notes reveal four new (to-me) bands: 1. Centro-Matic (these dudes live in Denton? Seriously?) 2. Yuck (a current English band with a really nice Pavement/Hum-esque sound) and 3. Rockpile, a sort of pre-new wave super group. The song “When I Write the Book” is from their 1980 album, “Seconds of Pleasure”, which I learned very quickly online is certifiably a cult record.  That said, my absolute, absolute favorite track on this mix is “Didn’t I” by Darondo, who I’d also never heard of. But I imagine that he’s from Galveston, and just hangs out on the seawall looking cool every day. Thanks for all of these, Mick, but especially that one. Stay cool.
