Radio Granada 2

Let's rock it fair-to-middling old school this morning with a trick turned by Guided Voices. You remember Guided By Voices, right? They're the guys that inspired The Strokes.

You remember The Strokes, right?

If you like this, I strongly recommend hunting down the studio version, which contains some bootsauce keyboards that are conspicuous by their absence here.

Incidentally, I originally got my hands on this song off of the Buffy soundtrack, but I never worked out which episode it was in. If anyone could help me out with that, there's a shiny penny in it for you.

3. "Temptation Waits" (Does not ever appear in the series)
4. "Strong" (episode 1x5 Never Kill a Boy on the First Date)
5. "I Quit" (Does not ever appear in the series)

Hmm. Thanks, Jamie. I have to admit to being slightly curious as to exactly what percentage of an ostensible soundtrack album has to have actually appeared in the show itself before Mr Trading Standards comes a-knocking. I guess 5 out of 6 isn't bad. I wonder if there was one of those "music from and inspired by" qualifications in there somewhere. That seemed to be the rationale behind "I Quit", at least.

You can have your shiny penny when I see you in Sheffield.
