Song Pick of the Week

To start off the new year, I thought I would take a trip back to the magical decade that was the 90s. Most people will likely remember the song “Hobo Humpin Slobo Babe” and the video that accompanied it. It was a surprise hit in 1993 but ended up being Whale’s only claim to fame. I recently came across the track again and realized how long it has been since I last heard it. If you’ve never heard the song before, I’m not exactly sure how to best describe it. Somewhere I read the description Gonzo funk applied to the track, and while this gives you the basic idea, “Hobo Humpin Slobo Babe” is something you should really hear for yourself.

Also, I’ve been considering making myself a (semi) Hits of the 90s mixed CD lately. I’ve thought of a few tracks to include (see below), but was wondering if anyone else had any favourites to suggest?

Gandharvas - First Day of Spring
The Killjoys - Today I Hate Everyone
Limblifter - Vicious
Age of Electric - Enya
Furnaceface - if you love her (would you buy her a gun?)
Pure - Lemonade
Failure - Stuck On You
Hum - Stars
Helmet - Milquetoast
