Happy Friday,

I am pretty sure that around 3 pm this afternoon you're going to be in need of an inspiring track to get you all excited for the weekend. The beauty of music today is that you have this thing called the iTunes library and it gives you thousands of choices to pick from and if it's aint doing it for you - then youtube had pretty much anything you can think of. For me today's song will be from a classic band called Cracker. Cracker formed from the older version of the band called Camper van Beethoven. Do you remember a song called 'Take the Skinheads Bowling'? It was used in Michael Moore's film 'Bowling for Columbine'.

When Cracker's album 'Kerosene Hat' came out, in 1993, bands/artists were always adding bonus secret hidden tracks to their albums. This particular one had 3 and one was this gem 'Euro-trash Girl' . The funny thing about these hidden tracks today in 2009 is that when you go to upload on your iTunes player (that's what I am using) it counts out the other #s before you get all the way to the hidden track at #69. What this means it that you will have many 1 second sound clips from the end of the disc at #15 - #69 where the first hidden track is. I guess it's better than the old days of having to skip ahead that many times manually.

1993 - holy shit. Ps - Cracker came to mind as I see that they are perfroming at Lee's Palace on June 23rd. I will be there!

Have a great weekend!
