As we near the beginning of the third year of this sweet blog’s existence, and my writing career for that matter, there’s still plenty left for me to learn. For instance, I just found out what a series of five related works is called: a pentalogy. What does this have to do with this week’s Friday’s Mix Tape? Our mix begins with my favorite pentalogy of all-time about horses.
Ween’s epic Stallion pentalogy starts the mix off with a bang. All five parts of The Stallion come to us from Chocodog’s All Request Live release, an album recorded when the band entered the studio to perform a list of songs hand picked by their most hardcore fans. We keep the energy up with Naked City’s cover of the James Bond Theme. Next, we’ve got a song I can’t stop listening to since reading Some Dude’s Blip entry on The Virgins: Rich Girls. Finally, a DVDrip of Problems by The Sex Pistols off of There’ll Always Be An England sends us on our way with a bark and a sneer.
