Take the Skinheads Bowling

Song stuck in my head this week is a oft-unheard classic from 1985 by Camper Van Beethoven. This song, like many, is a time machine for me. I can remember when my friend Frank Ritacco mentioned it, and it took me a long time to find it and listen to it. No youtube in the ’80s. I couldn’t find the album, so I bought the band’s EP “Vampire Can Mating Oven,” and still love their version of “Photograph.”
If you don’t know the band and they sound familiar, it’s because the lead singer left to join Cracker, the ’90s band famous for “Teen Angst (What the World Needs Now)” and “Low.”

  1. I love that song. I haven’t listened to it in a while.

    “Suspect Device” by Stiff Little Fingers is what’s stuck in my head today. The f-all version, not the lame sod all radio edit. ;)

  2. Amazing how much easier it is to find almost any song now. Some things are better in 2012.
