Song Roulette

Random selections from the collection of I is for Ida’s Harry Brown

Harry Brown is a local musician and scooter entrepreneur (downtownscooternm.com). On Monday, Oct. 18, you can find his band I is for Ida performing for the first time in more than a year. Armed with new songs, the band plays in the middle of a tangy Portlander sandwich made of psychedelic disco act Lookbook and gloomy post-punker headliner The Prids. The show happens at Low Spirits (2823 Second Street NW) beginning at 9 p.m. A mere five ducat admission will be granted only to those of legal drinking age. Below lies a random smattering of Brown collection tracks that might provide some sonic foreshadowing for Monday’s show.

1) "Play for Today" • The Cure • Seventeen Seconds

“There was no way my iTunes could be randomly tapped and not produce a Cure song. There is no other band that has been as much an influence on me. This song isn't even in my top 10 Cure songs, but it's still better then 90 percent of my music library.”

2) "Star Clusters" • Birds & Batteries • I'll Never Sleep Again

“Stue Trory (a local man about town) asked my old band Unit 7 Drain to open for these guys when I had no idea who they were. They melted my face that night, and we did a CD trade after the show. This album stayed in the band van CD player for about a month, and it re-melted my face for that whole month.”

3) "Moving Mountains" • The Warlocks • Heavy Deavy Skull Lover

“A production assistant at KUNM turned me on to The Warlocks like eight or nine years ago by sharing a copy of the ‘Phoenix’ EP that the station had discarded. They have been one of my favorite bands ever since, and this track IS one of my favorites by them. Epic.”

4) "Quit" • The Waitresses • Wasn't Tomorrow Wonderful?

“I only have this album in my library because I like ‘I Know What Boys Like.’ I like to sing that one at karaoke and look deep into the eyes of whichever guy in the room looks the most homophobic, so he'll maybe start some shit. I'm not sure I've ever heard this song (?): Are they a ska band?”

5) "Loomer" • My Bloody Valentine • Loveless

“Every song on this album is amazing; is it the best album of the entire ’90s? Probably. I think I would die without this record. Whenever my life seems like it's falling apart, I can put this album on and remember: Everything is falling apart, and that's how it's supposed to be.”
