A.C. Newman: Oranges and Lemons


The non-XTC portion:

Keane: Warmplay

Longview: Coolplay

How could Mojo do a Roots of the Sex Pistols CD and not include a song by Amon Düül II, whose Renate Knaup-Krötenschwanz WAS the template for Lydon's scree?

Is Ted Leo going to shoulder Paul Weller's legacy all by himself? Can't Ludacris get in on this? Or one of The Gordons?

Best song involving decapitation and teeth-brushing: Richie Feelings’ “Dancing Class Part 2”

LPs dying to be classic, Chronic Town-like EPs: Phoenix's Alphabetical, and RJD2's Since We Last Spoke.

Most necro Elliott Smith substitute: Earlimart

Continually rewarded for trading audiences, spouses: Rod Stewart

You thought Lil Jon was a lock until: "Drop It Like It's Hot"

Still not finding rappers: Timbaland
