    Flashback Friday: The Humpty Dance

    I've been vibing pretty hard on 93.5 (kday) because they play shit like Digital Underground, Kriss Kross, SWV, and TLC. In fact, the topic of this post was initially going to be Onyx, but this blog I've never heard of but will probably continue to read just so happened to be a step ahead of me.

    Flashback: The Stone Roses – Standing Here

    The Stone Roses were an English alternative rock band formed in Manchester in 1984. They were one of the pioneering groups of the Madchester movement that was active during the late 1980s and early 1990s. The band's most notable lineup consisted of vocalist Ian Brown, guitarist John Squire, bassist Gary "Mani" Mounfield, and drummer Alan "Reni" Wren.

    Flashback: Boyz II Men, ABC, BBD

    Until pretty recently I had no idea what "ABC BBD" actually meant. I'm not sure where the epiphany came from but it came just the same, so enter another (late) version of the Flashback Friday post, featuring The East Coast Family. Howcome nothing sounds like this anymore? Happy Saturday.

    Flashback: Shel Silverstein on The Johnny Cash Show

    But I betchya didn't know he put out music. I did. My friend's dad had the LP when we were in Junior High but I ignored it cause I didn't want to ruin my childhood memories. Haha. Or something. But we listened to it. A lot of it was about getting stoned and drinking. Kinda seemed odd to me when I was 13 - like, what a creep, you know? But it's not like it's been in my mind for 10 years. I probably haven't thought about it since, until I bumped into the sweetest video ever on YouTube:

    Flashback Friday – The Skids

    There isn't really too much for me to say about this right now. Just listen and then watch the 3rd video if nothing else. HAS ANYBODY SEEN THIS YET AND WHY DID I JUST HEAR ABOUT IT?

    FLASHBACK FRIDAY: The Associates – Club Country

    The Associates released 'Club Country' on April 26th 1982, which appeared on their third album, Sulk. The B side was a non-LP track. The 12 inch version added "Ulcragyceptemol" (added as a bonus to Sulk when it was re-released) and a remixed version of "Club Country". The single reached the #10 spot on the U.K. singles chart.

    FLASHBACK FRIDAY: The Box Tops, The Buckinghams, and Jefferson Airplane

    Yes I know it's Sunday, so what? Since I haven't been vibing on any music lately, except for Shellac (obviously), and I can only post the same 5 Shellac songs so many times before someone'll throw a brick at my head until I can't lift it anymore, I had to come up with something. So these are my 3 favorite songs written before 1970.  At least, they are for right now and probably still will be tomorrow. Did anyone else almost by that video game that used 'White Rabbit' in its commercial last year for the sole reason that the song made the game look so rad? Guilty. Enjoy.

    Flashback Friday: (Neneh) Cherry, Oh Baby! – Eric Donaldson + Others

    This is the early, early, early, fucking EARLY Thursday edition of the Flashback Friday thing I started a couple weeks ago. Actually, it's really late since I didn't do one last weekend. Six of one, guys. Six of one. I've been pretty obsessed with old reggae and ska stuff for the past couple weeks and have revisited some old favorites that (I shit you not) I used to listen to 24 hours a day when I was 12. Namely, my favorite

    Flashback Friday: Jerry Lee Lewis – A Whole Lotta Shakin IS STILL Goin’ On

    As demonstrated in the following totally epic slice of rock and roll history, it doesn't, and probably won't EVER, get much crazier than Jerry fucking Lee Lewis. Exhibit A - This Video:

    Flashback Friday: Dion – Drip Drop

    So I think I've decided to do a new feature here at Fantastic Weapon. In addition to the (usually) weekly edition of the Sunday Morning Mixtape, I'm gonna do a Flashback Friday that'll either include a video, mp3, or both of something old. Let's define old, in terms of music: before 1980. Mostly before 1970, but before 1980 is gonna have to work, otherwise I'll probably start breaking rules left and right. The first post in FantasticWeapon.com's Flashback Friday feature is something different from a very popular 1960's doo-wop artist. I found this track a few months ago when
