Endless Loop: Fire Woman

cultHave you ever had one of those songs that gets stuck in your head for days…weeks…years? Sure you have. These are the songs that always make the cut. The songs on repeat. We all have them. I have a ton. Welcome back to Endless Loop.

“Fire Woman” by The Cult

There are so many bands and artists out there that I will never get the chance to see perform live due to death or circumstance or whatever.  I’ve made my peace with that, but there are an equal amount of bands and artists out there right now that, for whatever reason, I just haven’t seen perform either.  And it’s a damn shame that one of those bands is The Cult.

The Joup Friday Album: The Final Cut – Consumed

The Final Cut ConsumedSenior year in high school, so we’re talking the fall of 1992, bumper stickers for The Final Cut’s album Consumed began to appear all over my friend Brian’s house. They worked their way through our group of friends and eventually you saw them everywhere: school, other people’s houses, bumpers, the walls at the local burger king where people hung out after school. Everywhere. It was the best example of sticker-based marketing I’ve still ever seen, and all from a band that chances are, few people remember today.

“Help Me When You’re Gone” by Starflyer 59

Have you ever been to one of those Christian stores?  They’re these weird little gift shops that trade in religious iconography and nick-nacks, a showroom full of tables, racks, and shelves stacked and stuffed with books, Bibles, trinkets, shirts, crosses, and chachkies.  Jesus freak paraphernalia.  Salvation through consumerism.  Praise be to the lord.
