by The White Stripes
Back in the day I was looking for something on Napster and I chanced upon this. At that moment I realised that Jack White was the saviour of Rock n' Roll. Still makes the hairs stand up on the back of my neck.

I presume that this has been jammed hundreds of times before on TIMJ. TIMJ has a lovely little feature which shows how many times a jam has been jammed and who the jammers were, after you have jammed the song. I love that. The refugee camps that we will go to next week don't have that (yet!). As to the song. This is one of those songs with the most cover versions. Here is more information than most of us need to know about Louie Louie - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louie_Louie #GoDownJamming #UntilTheWheelsFallOff

From their 1989 album "Brain Drain". Written by Joey. My daughter and her man have just moved to Australia to work as hospital doctors as part of their training. Half the patients to look after with twice the staff than in the UK and a lot less political shit to take. She will be back but it makes you think. The album and this track seemed appropriate.

by The Mekons
From their 1989 album the Mekons Rock 'n' Roll. The record buying public turned away in droves and their record company ditched them after this. What do they know? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mekons

by Patti Smith
The full nine minute version of this is on her 1975 album Horses - the title of which comes from this song. Used to great effect in the 2015 movie "Catch Me Daddy". This is the link to the relevant clip from the movie https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8UD2tBZSzI Choreography was by FKA Twigs.

Yet another amazing song discovered via TIMJ. Thanks to @philipnareike @shitsterbauer & @jackietheripper (amongst many others) for introducing me to so much wonderful stuff that I did not know existed.

The whole album, from 2014, is brilliant. These guys, Jacco Gardner, Destruction Unit, Yamantaka//Sonic Titan and an all-round amazing line-up are appearing at The Liverpool Festival of Psychedelia next month. Can't wait. Spiritualized are top of the bill.

by The Velvet Underground
Wanted to jam the version by Lou Reed on the very interesting live album "Animal Serenade" recorded in 2003 but "The System" wouldn't let me! Anyway here is the classic. Have a great weekend.
Jammed: 24th Jul 2015
by Lou Reed
Yes indeed - this is Lou Reed singing sincerely about the stuff in the middle of a chocolate egg - well at least that is my understanding of it as a Brit. Maybe a native New Yorker needs to explain. From his 1996 album "Set The Twilight Reeling".
Jammed: 21st Jul 2015
by Lou Reed
From his 1989 album New York. The icy stare of the amoral observer can, sometimes, give rise to a compassionate voice then tip over into social commentary - and even politics tinged with outrage. Here the outrage is vividly explicit.
Jammed: 19th Jul 2015
by Lou Reed
Live version around the time of his, arguably, best solo live album - the 1984 "Live in Italy". This was a track, originally, from the 1974 album "Sally Can't Dance", arguably his worst album! Oh the lows and highs of Lou Reed. This is a high with the great Robert Quine on guitar. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Quine

by Lou Reed
From his 1978 album of the same name. A three part vignette of life on the mean streets. Here is the lush pop treatment that Arista gave him which he dropped when he went back to RCA. Good though and angular rock still leaks through.

Wait! There's more…
