Playlist: Where I Was In… 1991?

So I might as well finish off the 90’s decade with this very last year to be done! Wednesday morning blog post is 1991 which was the year to get credit for the underground breaking into the mainstream. But I don’t know if can tell the differences with my playlist and one’s before and after or all that I’ve already posted up?

Fun fact for today you might know or not? Is famous American producer Butch Vig did Aussie band Cosmic Psychos’ classic album Blokes You Can Trust. Oh, then Vig goes on to do couple other records you might have heard off too? Nevermind by Nirvana and Gish by The Smashing Pumpkins. BTW the fourth album Vig produced in 1991 was by a band called Cement which no one listened too but was on the great indie label Touch And Go, you know?

Also I notice in Zero Blank by Kim Salmon & The Surrealists’ video clip is that’s Brain Hooper pretending to be dead at some funnels but he just passed away on this weekend just gone!

  1. Onya William, smashed the 90s! Some of these songs, I just can’t believe they’re that old! I must have gotten into them a few years later. They remind me of being in my last year or so of high school! You were probably a much cooler kid earlier on though than me, I don’t think I’d heard many of these when it was actually ’91.

    1. Well, thanks Simone! I forgot to say above in the post but if you need more even 90’s music the years 1992, 1993, 1994, 1994, 1995 are all 75 songs now and I’ll start working on a bit more on 96 tonight too!
      I don’t know if cool is the right word? i don’t think I’ve said to you but blog about it before but where i grew-up was a small town country, 6 hrs on a bus just to get to a good music shop, the big city etc. but i did find rage on late night tv pretty young, i don’t know what year? but i didn’t sleep as a teenage so i got the old box TV in my room. Everyone was a bogan or surfer and i would get all the band t-shirt too, no one really knew most of the bands I started to discovered then. Triple j got to the country at some point and everyone opened up more then. I’ve also included my fave mainstream hits too in all these lists too, you know?

      1. Rad! (Not the no-sleep part, that sounds shit.) I’ll have to check these updated versions out. I think I really started getting into music maybe in Year 9 (’92), I can still remember being in the Rock Eisteddfod at school (I don’t know if you have those in Perth or if it’s just a Vic thing?? It’s like a competition against other schools) but I was one of the ‘baddy’ dancers who was in the wrong crowd (it was kinda like a good vs evil theme, moral of the story sort of thing?), and anyway, every time I hear ‘1999’, ‘Epic’ or ‘Push It’ it always makes me remember that time! And some of the dance moves! Cos they were the songs we danced to. So funny. Those were the days! Anyway, thanks for doing these lists William! I’ll be sure to check out the new additions! =)

      2. My mum was a dance teacher when i was a little kid, you know? Rock Eisteddfod sounds like something she would have done if she could, i’ll have to ask her about that? i was blacklisted from her dance classes because i can’t remember what the reason was, maybe i being a nutcase or something? But she did use all my music for one end of year dance show in small country town, i don’t know what all the mum’s and dad’s watching did think? It was like putting pig tails on the ballet class kids and using NIN’s Piggy and i remember two Primus songs was used and stuff like that!
        I hope you enjoy the playlists if you do listen to them 🙂

      3. Hey that’s cool! Does she still teach dance? Yes, maybe nutcase is correct!? You might have tried to do the worm or something? Haha, love the idea of your music being used, with all these innocent girls (and boys maybe of course) dancing to it with their parents going ‘wtf?!’!! Thanks again, I reckon I’ll have a listen over the weekend to your playlists, I’m having a chilled one as I was at school overnight for the Anzac sleepout and early dawn service this morning! ZZZZzzzzzzzzZZZZZ! So lazy weekend is in order with some good music! Cheers! =)

      4. Nope, she stuffed her knee at some point and stopped but i did do all the shows vhs tapes to dvds for her which she then didn’t watch any of them at all!
        I was pretty great at the break-dancing and even could do the head spin when i was a kid, you know?
        Sounds like a great bloody plan for the weekend!

      5. Ha, I just knew you’d be a crazy dancer! You need to pull out some of these dance moves at the next Golden Plains/Meredith, yes?! No good about your mum, but what a good son you are. =)

  2. Playlist is great William! Am only a third of the way through though on this Saturday night! So very 90s fashion, ‘Treaty’ always makes me get up and dance, and I remember now how much I loved ‘Rush You’. How do you choose your faves? Are they ones that you liked back then, or have you come across them along the way? Some of these I have never heard before so thanks for highlighting them. =)

    1. It’s a bit of all-time faves which I’ve never stop listening too, stuff i loved at the time but not listen to for years, stuffed I’ve found along the way over the years but could go into one of those. I was trying to highlight non-mainstream or more indie stuff but i had just had to have a bit of both. Also included something i dig from all styles of music too but off course they’re more of somethings than others. But i think I’ve got it pretty right of everything I’ve listen to over the years! Down to personal taste too, i guess!
      What are your all-time faves from that list? Then the stuff you’ve never heard before? Got to ask did i miss anything you would have included?

  3. Hmm, so many great ones to choose from! I would also have chosen ‘Something In The Way’ as my fave from the Nevermind album, there’s something about this song, I think I just love the tempo and the cello (I think cello?) especially. I definitely dig a lot of the artists you’ve listed but for 1991 REM it’d have to be ‘Losing My Religion’, for Pearl Jam ‘Garden’ would be the one. I think I’d have also chosen ‘Fall At Your Feet’ by Crowded House as well although that’s a close call. Additions (and like you said, personal taste): I would have put AIC’s ‘Man In The Box’ in this list (if it’s a 1991 song, which I think it is?) cos they were a big fave of mine. Also ‘Unfinished Sympathy’ by Massive Attack. Guilty pleasure, ‘Horses’ by Daz B! Songs that I haven’t heard much/at all before yesterday but liked a lot: Ed Kuepper ‘The Way I Made You Feel’, Clouds Hieronymus’…and I haven’t got through all your list yet! Will you extend this playlist like you have the others? BTW I’m gonna listen to Gaz today on Double J, thanks for the tip! =)

    1. Oh, most likely add more songs at some point but want to get the rest of 80’s and 70’s done 1st! I think I’ll get 80’s done this week and 70’s next, well that’s the plan!
      That’s some good ones I missed, true! Nice picks! Something In The Way is easy the best on Nevermind for me so very cool you dig that one too!
      I’m listening to Gaz show this morning because i missed it yesterday! It’s pretty great stuff!
      🙂

      1. Cool! I look forward to the next instalments William! Yep the show was good! When I heard ‘Legal Ghost’ by Bong Odyssey I was a bit confused cos I thought ‘Wow, that really sounds like Gaz’, but a quick Google later showed me it was his earlier band, which I did not know about! So there ya go! Cheers! =)

      2. Cool! Thanks for link! I just love Gaz’s words about what they got up to after high school! Is that really true about WA? Or have things changed now? I feel that you guys have lots of great things happening in WA, or is my impression wrong? Either way, I’m guessing you’re pretty excited about May the 4th William! =)

      3. Well, Bong Odyssey is out now but yeah TFS album is still out then and i can’t wait for that! Tonight and tomorrow and then i can listen to it plus I’ll see how quick my pre-orders comes too?
        Mark K’s new self-titled album is out then too but you can listen, stream it on his website now and it’s amazing and might just be a masterpiece too but that’s after only a few listens, for me the true test for being totally great wicked is if I just don’t stop listening to it!

      4. Awesome, I’ll be sure to have a listen to Mark! TFS is album of the week on RRR at the moment so hearing lots of it! =)
