I know this real cool dude, this Cody Valentine boy right here, and he’s from Oakland’s rock n’ roll power pop band, Sticky Valentines. Now I reallyyyyy dig these dudes so earlier this week, I asked Cody if wanted to contribute a playlist of what he’s been listening to for the Bird Trouble blog’s new Music Mondays chapter.
You may remember the old Music Mondays. It was short lived but now it’s back and it’s back with a ton to offer. I want to bring musicians to the Bird Trouble blog, ones that have this particular rock n’ roll talent, ones in really cool bands to dance to, ones with words to say that I want to hear and think you should here. Music has driven and saved me. If it wasn’t for those first punk shows I went to in high school, I wouldn’t be who I am today and neither would my art or sense of style. Music brought me together with some amazing people who say whatever they want to say, no matter what. They’ve shaped who I am today and has inspired the growth of what the Bird Trouble brand is really becoming. I want the Bird Trouble brand to be this creative and always-fun movement that supports and exposes bad-ass underground musicians/bands while letting them share what they love on this here blog. Get ready for some Music Monday fun to start your weeks RIGHT!
Great, now there’s blog guts everywhere. Here is what Cody’s playlist for this week.
1. satans rats – you make me sick
2. the 101’ers – keys to your heart
3. the rpm’s – i don’t wanna be young
4. the soda pop kids – put on your tight pants
5. t-rex – solid gold easy action
6. primitive hearts – cry baby
7. robert johnson – love in vain
