Song of the Day – “Name’s the same” Tuesday – “Edge of the World”

A couple of odd numbers today. You could even call them – dare I say it? – edgy.

Sam Phillips – Let’s Active

This track from Phillips’ Fan Dance sounds as though it could easily have been done by some chanteuse like Edith Piaf.

R.E.M.’s Murmur was produced by two of my favorite north Carolineans, Don Dixon and Mitch Easter. Around that time they each had their own bands: Arrogance featured Dixon and Easter fronted Let’s Active.

This track from the 1983 EP afoot is typical of their sound, and you can hear how they influenced other bands from Athens and all over the South at the time.
