214: “Nomadic Static” by Tommy Guerrero

You should taste my moustache.It’s dark, driving, and meditative. “Nomadic Static” is an especially moody shade, but illustrative of Tommy Guerrero‘s MO.

Tommy plays guitar. He’s a skateboarder turned musician, if he turned at all. A man can be many things.

Enjoy.

100: “Astro Blue” by Lord Newborn & The Magic Skulls

The actual musicians.100th song.  Throw some streamers and drink a cold one.

Here’s another post with the touch of Money Mark on it.  He teamed up with Tommy Guerrero and Shawn Lee to form Lord Newborn & The Magic Skulls.

This is my favorite from their self-titled debut from 2009.

Rock out with your socks out, and enjoy.

67: “I’m Her Daddy” by Bill Withers

Not the guy who dies in an episode of Star Trek.I first heard this song on a compilation by Tommy Guerrero called Another Late Night.

From Bill Withers‘ 1971 release, Just As I Am, “I’m Her Daddy” is a dark tune sung by a father questioning his lost love about the 6-year-old daughter he didn’t know he had.  Everyone knows what THAT feels like.  Awkward as a full-on shart. But he’s willing to sing through it.

6 years, Lucy, Lord have mercy, that’s a long time.

Enjoy.
