Scuba - Why You Feel So Low (Original Mix)

The Jim Carroll Band - People Who Died

Teddy sniffing glue he was 12 years old
Fell from the roof on east two-nine
Cathy was 11 when she pulled the plug
On 26 reds and a bottle of wine
Bobby got leukemia, 14 years old
He looked like 65 when he died
He was a friend of mine

Those are people who died, died
Those are people who died, died
Those are people who died, died
Those are people who died, died
They were all my friends, and they died

G-berg and Georgie let their gimmicks go rotten
So they died of hepatitis in upper Manhattan
Sly in vietnam took a bullet in the head
Bobby od'ed on drano on the night that he was wed
They were two more friends of mine
Two more friends that died / I miss 'em--they died

Repeat refrain

Mary took a dry dive from a hotel room
Bobby hung himself from a cell in the tombs
Judy jumped in front of a subway train
Eddie got slit in the jugular vein
And Eddie, I miss you more than all the others,
And I salute you brother/ this song is for you my brother

Repeat refrain

Herbie pushed tony from the boys' club roof
Tony thought that his rage was just some goof
But herbie sure gave Tony some bitchen proof
"Hey," Herbie said, "Tony, can you fly? "
But Tony couldn't fly . . . Tony died

Repeat refrain:

Brian got busted on a narco rap
He beat the rap by rattin' on some bikers
He said, hey, I know it's dangerous,
But it sure beats Riker's
But the next day he got offed
By the very same bikers

Repeat refrain:


ohhh, just found a live version with Lou Reed:

Recorded Live: 9/25/1984 - Capitol Theatre - Passaic, NJ

Solid Steel Radio Show 13/2/2015 Part 1 + 2 - DJ Food

Solid Steel (13th February) DJ Food - Selected Aphex Works

"Unless you've been living under a rock recently you'll have heard the news that Aphex Twin unexpectedly uploaded 155 of his old and unreleased tracks and made them downloadable for free. Starting from his earliest demos through to known live tracks, later jungle experiments and beyond, this is the motherlode that his fans have always wanted. DJ Food, a long-time Aphex fan, has been through the entire collection with a fine-toothed comb and selected his favourites for the first half of the show this week. The hit rate was high but he's has managed to cram 31 tracks into 85 minutes to mark this unique occasion and peppered the mix with vintage interview clips of Richard James talking about his music."
