When you are walking into this exhibition you hear it before you see it because of all the songs playing but all at the same time in some kind-of fucked-up, Nick Cave mash-up. What you see first is a huge photo of him kind-off like on the poster but standing up. …

“First Wave Northern Ireland Punk” – I’m not quite sure of any specifics or dates but the earliest year in this comp is 1975 and the latest is 1985. Many of these songs and artists are fairly obscure and totally underrated, others are just so-so (I culled some really dodgy ones like The Faders, Cramp, The Idiots, Terri & the Terrors (which features Bono, and I hate U2). When comparing F.W.N.I.P. to the bands and scenes in London, New York, LA, etc – Northern Ireland was just as active as they were. Sure there was only one decent punk label (Good Vibrations in Derry) but the bands that came out of that first wave scene proved that they were just as good, if not better (even bands from Dublin involved themselves with the Northern scene. …

Try it out!
So, here's how it works:
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that's playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button
Love Missile F1-11 : Sigue Sigue Sputnik (kicking things off with a techno/rock bang!)
Let's Roll : Fly My Pretties (ah, if only I was that motivated first thing when I get up. Maybe I should try listening to this song first thing and see if it helps)
First Day At School:
Ciao Mama : Jovanotti (hee! that's kind of cute)
Sitting, Waiting, Wishing : Jack Johnson (that doesn't sound good)
Turn It Around : Fly My Pretties (not exactly a rockin' party. The FMP version is pretty mellow. The Black Seeds version would be slightly better, but still not really a party song)
Falling In Love:
