The Cast of Cheers‘ John Higgins took a break from touring and promoting their new single ‘Trucks at Night’, to make us a mix tape of songs they listen to on the road. Enjoy the resulting fun!
‘Ping island/lightning strike rescue op’ – Mark Mothersbaugh
The only song I’d ever want to storm a pirate’s fortress to. One of the greatest pieces of music to ever grace the silver screen. EPIC!
‘Real by Reel’ – XTC
Drunken tour bus sing-a-longs don’t get much better.
‘Life’s a Beach’ – Django Django
Makes me feel like in a previous life I was once some sort of vagabond desert merchant, that and teapots filled with various cocktails.
‘Cough Cough’ – Everything Everything
I think we all collectively said “TUNE!” on our first listen. Also “bangin'”, “holy shi-” and “Whaaaaa!?”
‘I’m Sorry We Lied’- Blood Orange
Recently came across this and I wanted to hit myself for not knowing about it sooner. Song gets me right in the feels, the video even more so, amazing stuff.
‘This Must be the Place’ – Talking Heads
Fond memories of mulled wine last Christmas in London with this track. The only song I know I’d be happy with at a Birthday, Wedding or Funeral.
‘My Machines’ – Battles feat. Gary Nuwman
IT’S BATTLES AND GARY NUMAN. THERE’S NOTHING MORE I CAN SAY ON THE MATTER!
