50 Years Of MyTunes: 1993

1993 marked my return to the US, my getting married, and of course the rise to prominance of Beavis and Butthead in the American vernacular.  I had no real favorite albums that year but my favorite songs are:

Who Was In My Room Last Night? by the Butthole Surfers from the brilliant Independent Worm Saloon album. The video is a personal favorite. That's Flea from the RHCP tending bar, but whose that redhead?

Low by Cracker from Kerosene Hat. I saw these guys at a tiny venue in Fort Collins, CO that year.

In Utero, the last album by Nirvana. The song All Apologies seemed prescient.

Runaway Train Soul Asylum

Hobo Humpin' Slobo Babe by Whale. I actually bought a cassette tape with just this song on it. This was still the days before iTunes.

What's Up? by 4 Non Blondes. Political posing with a big voice.


  1. Oops! forgot about the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. I'll feature them next year in 1994, the year "Orange" came out.

  2. I forgot Tool too. Vog is going to hate that.

  3. I like Cracker and love Low. You were lucky to catch them in an intimate venue where you could enjoy the music to the max.

  4. Nirvana is simply cool - and I'm with you on All Apologies.
