CORRECTION: In a previous post, we stated that Justin Bieber and The Jonas Brothers founded The Quarrymen, the band that later became The Beatles. This was not correct. As many of you wrote in to tell us, Justin Bieber joined after the name change and was never a member of The Quarrymen. (source: wikipedia). Ear to the Ground regrets this error.
Got a full plate today, so let’s get to the Shuffle:
First up, lets get our 90s Power Pop groove on with Velvet Crush a Rhode Island band. Today’s song is Weird Summer which comes from their 1994 Matthew Sweet produced, Teenage Symphonies to God album.

The next track is from an upcoming mixtape called, The Wild, The Innocent and the TV Shuffle. It’s a song called, I Wonder Who She’s Kissing Now
from the San Diego based duo, TV Girl.
(a previous release from TV Girl)
Next is a live version of classic UK punk song, Ever Fallen In Love (With Someone You Shouldn’t’ve) by The Buzzcocks from their second album, Love Bites. People from my generation may recognize the song which was covered by Fine Young Cannibals.
The Black Jesuses are a side project of members of the band The Parlor Mob. Roll Call Blues
is today’s track from that project.(h/t and link to Popa’s Tunes)
Finally, we have a track from a compilation called, Generations I: a Punk Look at Human Rights. It’s called The Alien Song, and it features The Red Aunts along with punk goddess, Exene Cervenka (as Exene Cervenkova).
