Never Ending Internet Mix Tape

a musical exquisite corpse. look it up.

Vol 01 / Trk 03 / (I Want to Be an) Anglepoise Lamp / The Soft Boys

“Lipstick Vogue” came out in 1978, a hell of a year for music. There are so many great songs that represent the year, and in the universe immediately adjacent to ours, I’m listing Talking Heads’ “I’m Not in Love” here. But in this one, where the Soft Boys’ genius and talent is criminally underreported, I’m using “(I Want to Be an) Anglepoise Lamp,” a brilliantly spiky blast of melody that might best represent the punk ethos: no matter how weird you are, all you need to do is pick up a guitar and you deserve to be heard.
