Reelin' in the years
Pigdump: unstuck in time

daily recordsThis week, Pigdump passed a milestone (and you know how that can hurt.) Three years. That's right, three years of web presence in the competitive platform of online content delivery systems - top quality content at that. Oh but we were young in 1999. Sigh.

Pigdump's senior editor sat quietly in her rec room last night contemplating how to mark such an occasion. In her wood panelled basement with the beige rug, she reclined on the old futon waiting for inspiration. While a music CD in her computer played a selection of illegal downloads, she looked across the room at her collection of vinyl albums. She listened to the songs playing on her laptop and laughed.

"Heh heh." She felt no guilt about the downloaded mp3s. Everything she took from Napster/Gnutella/LimeWire she owned. "Oh the money I spent on that vinyl, these songs are mine, man, no one can take them away from me."

So instead of fireworks, memories and maudlin tributes to the first three years of Pigdump, here's the song list, the soundtrack in Pigdump's head space cultivated over many years of sitting in the basement surrounded by wood panelling and vinyl. In no particular order...

  • English Beat: Save it For Later
  • T-Bone Burnett: The Murder Weapon
  • Joni Mitchell: Amelia
  • Marshall Crenshaw: Whenever You're on My Mind

  • Squeeze: Another Nail in My Heart
  • The Clash: Magnificent Seven
  • Richard and Linda Thompson: It's Just the Motion
  • Rockpile: Crawlin' From the Wreckage
  • John Hiatt: Drive South
