THE VASCO ERA'S ROAD TRIP MIX TAPE
1. 'Roadrunner' – Modern Lovers:
"This is because it is about driving and liking the modern world which is hard to do, unless you are driving."
2. 'Hallogallo' – Neu!:
"It goes for 10 minutes and is a slow burner."
3. 'Like a Rolling Stone' – Bob Dylan:
"Also because it goes for a long time and I never get sick of it."
4. 'Don't Let Me Down' – E.L.O:
"Because the beat makes me awake."
5. 'Born To Run' – Bruce Springsteen
"It is about cars and getting out of town, which I like the idea of."
6. 'Drive' – Incubus:
"For obvious reasons."
7. 'Just What I Needed' – The Cars
"This one is also pretty self explanatory."
8. 'Arm Around You' – Arthur Russel:
"Because it is my favourite song at the moment."
9. 'Senseless Apprentice' – Nirvana:
"'Cos it's a headbanger."
10. 'Astral Weeks' – Van Morrison:
"This is for the end of the drive."
The Vasco Era play their final show for the year at the Corner Hotel on Friday 22 June. Support comes from Luke Legs & the Midnight Specials and Fraser Gorman.
