Static on the Wadio - Episode 11

When I graduated high school, my life became my own. I was suddenly responsible for my actions, for my purpose, for how I viewed the world. For a few years I had an amazing growing awareness of the power of music but nothing had prepared me for this new beginning. Then, one day I was lying on my bed in my dorm room and I read about an album that just came out by the Pixies. I had no what they sounded like but the way it was described in this article clutched at me. I immediately went out and got the album, Dollittle, and laid it down for my ears. The song Debaser kicked it off and it was so strange. I didn't know what to make of it. It had so much energy, so alive in my heart but it was kind of a mess, discordant and melodic at the same time. Little did I know but that would grow into the sound of a generation, for me and for so many others as we navigated our twenties in the apathetic nineties. Many of those songs can be found in this mix, bands that we're instrumental in keeping me grounded during a difficult and tumultuous time in my life.
