If you find yourself in Instagram galaxy you should check out the @lovebanguniverse. That’s the club night and label side of all this. Got cartoons coming every day as long as it stays rainy and probably longer, plus a lot of what’s going on in Shanghai and random culture bits that you won’t generally find on this blog.

To match the rain and sky in this countryside Blade Runner megalopolis, here’s some dreary classics that I hope the youth will know.

You may find danger walking down the sidewalk sometimes, whether it’s muggers or e-bikes. This song revels in that danger. Some Michigan Music right here, from 1973.

The Stooges – Gimme Danger

I don’t know what Morrisey is on sometimes but the band killed it. Guitar like no other. This one from 1985.

The Smiths – How Soon Is Now

Another pretty obviously classic but it’s so good let’s put it up anyway. One of those tracks you recognize from the first eight bars. Coming at you from 1979.

Joy Division – Disorder

And then comes the calm…”Psychocandy” by The Jesus & Mary Chain is an album to put when you feel mad fucked up, especially after traveling/benders/etc. These guys were infinitely way more fucked when they made this music, and it shows. If you like Yeezus you’ll probably feel this album. Got this stone cold classic from 1985 at a record store in Tokyo a few years back.

The Jesus & Mary Chain – Just Like Honey
