#162: bob marley - concrete jungle (tuff gong studio, 1980)

this choppy little clip of a dying bob marley playing a hit from two decades earlier might be even better than the toots & the maytals studio scene in the harder they come. that melting guitar at the end (i think it’s from junior marvin, who used to play with toots) makes me want to howl.

The Killers - Shot At The Night

So The Killers, a Soundboard fave, released a new track last Fall for their greatest hits album and it’s pretty great and has a retro 80s sound… and you know I love me some 80s.

The music video, which stars The Social Network’s “not-actually-Indian" guy, comrade of "not-actually-twins" guy, is just as interesting as you’d come to expect from Brandon Flowers and co. It also serves as a great companion to the video for the album’s 2nd single, Just Another Girl, which stars Glee’s “not-actually-evil-well-maybe-kind-of-evil-but-she-has-her-reasons-I-guess?" girl.

Anyway, you know the drill. Press play. Have a good time. See you next week.
