Song of the Day 4/14/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Tuesday’s song is #470:

The Slickee Boys Pushing My Luck

Desperate, alienated, minor-key noir 60s-style pop amped to redline with scorching guitars by the brilliant Washington, DC psychedelic punk band. From their classic 1983 lp Cybernetic Dreams of Pi, still available from TwinTone as a download. As late as a couple of years ago, the band was still doing holiday-season reunion shows: if you get the chance to catch one, don’t miss it.
