Cool MxPx--Teenage Politics

MxPx released Teenage Politics in 1995, which pointed to a growing trend in punk rock--it was actually sounding a rather bit teenaged. The snarl and scowl of traditional punk was supplanted by a more whiny, non-shouting voice. It seemed that the new generation of young punk rockers were losing sight of the original abrasive spirit of punk. The album featured tracks such as "Punk Rawk Show", "Sugarcoated Poisoned Apple", "Democracy", and ". Like Sand Thru The Hourglass... So Are The Days Of Our Lives".

Punk Rawk Show

We ainít got no place to go
So letís go to the punk rawk show
Darling take me by the hand
Weíre gonna see a punk rawk band
Thereís no use in tv shows
Radio or rodeos
I wanna get into the crowd
I wanna hear it played real loud
Aintí got no money to pay
Weíll get in anyway doesnít matter I donít care
Itís feel good so we should share
Weíre going to the punk rawk show! oooohh!! ooohh

Cool Jars of Clay

A bigger outfit escaping from the Christian music "evangelical ghetto" was Jars of Clay, whose soft acoustic pop melodies fit right in with the trend toward lighter rock songs. The band, which featured Dan Haseltine on vocals, Charlie Lowell on piano, organ, accordian, keys, and background vocals, Stephen Mason on guitar, stringed instruments and vocals, and Matthew Odmark, also on acoustic guitar, banjo, background vocals, became one of the biggest "Christian crossover" acts since Amy Grant did only ten years before. Their songs like "Flood" became a radio hit, and even explicitly Christian songs such as "Love Song for a Savior" became familiar to fans who had little time for church. The interesting thing was that Jars of Clay sounded just like what one expected to hear on a Christian station, yet had enough secular appeal (though some listeners balked at the fact that they were hearing a Christian band). The band drew their name from verse in Ist Corinthians, but considering they were tied in with the "unplugged alternative" movement, it may be possible they got their name from a take on the Jar of Flies EP by Alice In Chains.

Flood

Rain, rain on my face
It hasn't stopped raining for days
My world is a flood
Slowly I become one with the mud

Chorus:

But if I can't swim after forty days
and my mind is crushed by the crashing waves
Lift me up so high that I cannot fall
Lift me up
Lift me up - when I'm falling
Lift me up - I'm weak and I'm dying
Lift me up - I need you to hold me
Lift me up - Keep me from drowning again

Downpour on my soul
Splashing in the ocean, I'm losing control
Dark sky all around
I can't feel my feet touching the ground

[Chorus]

Calm the storms that drench my eyes
Dry the streams still flowing
Cast down all the waves of sin
And guilt that overthrow me

[Chorus]

Lift me up - when I'm falling
Lift me up - I'm weak and I'm dying
Lift me up - I need you to hold me
Lift me up - Keep me from drowning again

Cool

Their debut album, simply titled Jars of Clay, was produced by veteran guitarist Adrian Belew (of King Crimson and David Bowie fame).

Love Song For a Savior

in open fields of wild flowers
she breathes the air and flies away
she thanks her Jesus for the daises and the roses
in no simple language
someday she'll understand the meaning of it all
he's more than the laughter or the stars in the heavens
as close a heartbeat or a song on her lips
someday she'll trust him and learn how to see him
someday he'll call her and she will come running
and fall in his arms and the tears will fall down and she'll pray

i want to fall in love with you

sitting silent wearing sunday best
the sermon echoes through the walls
a great salvation through it calls to the people
who stare into nowhere, and can't feel the chains on their souls

he's more than the laughter or the stars in the heavens
as close a heartbeat or a song on our lips
someday we'll trust him and learn how to see him
someday he'll call us and we will come running
and fall in his arms and the tears will fall down and we'll pray

i want to fall in love with you

it seems too easy to call you "Savior"
not close enough to call you "God"
so as i sit and think of words i can mention
to show my devotion

i want to fall in love with you

my heart beats for you

Cool Lenny Kravitz--Are You Gonna Go My Way

Going back over a year, we must not forget Lenny Kravitz and his breakthrough album Are You Gonna Go My Way, which featured more of his classic rock, soul, and funk influences. In an era which was more dominated by rap and hip hop, as well as "retro" sounding alternative bands who seemed to take a detour through the 70's, Kravitz' music seemed closer to the real deal. He was one of the few persons of color, other than Vernon Reid of Living Color and Rage Against the Machine's Tom Morello, who actually played guitar (a Gibson Flying V, no less), it seemed. Critics decried the album as being too derivative and half-baked, but the title song remains one of his all-time hits with its solid, thumping groove.

Are You Gonna Go My Way

I was born long ago
I am the chosen I'm the one
I have come to save the day
And I won't leave until I'm done
So that's why you've got to try
You've got to breathe and have some fun
Though I'm not paid I play this game
And I won't stop until I'm done

But what I really want to know is
Are you gonna go my way?
And I got to got to know

I don't know why we always cry
This we must leave and get undone
We must engage and rearrange
And turn this planet back to one
So tell me why we got to die
And kill each other one by one
We've got to hug and rub-a-dub
We've got to dance and be in love

But what I really want to know is
Are you gonna go my way?
And I got to got to know

Are you gonna go my way?
'Cause baby I got to know
Yeah

Cool Lenny Kravitz--Circus

In 1995, Lenny Kravitz released Circus, an album not quite as successful as its predecessor, but the opening song, a diatribe against rock star decadence, seemed to encapsulate what many were feeling about the music scene in general. In 1995, some forty years after the big bang started and changed the face of music and popular culture, rock and roll, as a unique ground-shaking combination of white country & western and black rhythm and blues, had lost a lot of meaning. Even though there was a rise in popularity among more traditionally based bands, the whole idea of "Woodstock Nation" and return to the 60's innocense was little more than nostalgia. Rock music in all its forms was simply regimented and compartmentalized into meaningless genres, sub-genres, and listener-friendly radio formats. It had become all things to all men (and women), yet it had become...what??

With that in mind, we close off 1995, and this thread with the following song from Kravitz' song Circus:

Rock and Roll is Dead

You think you're on top of the world
But you know it's really over
Runnin' round with diamond rings
And coke spoons that are overflowin'
Rock an Roll is dead
But all the money in the world
Can't buy you from the place you're going to
Rock an Roll is dead
Rock an Roll is dead
Rock an Roll is dead

You can't even sing or play an instrument
So you just scream instead
You're living for an image
So you got five hundred women in your bed
Rock an Roll is dead
But it's real hard to be yourself
When you're living with those demons
In your head
Rock an Roll is dead
Rock an Roll is dead
Rock an Roll is dead

Rock an Roll is dead
Rock an Roll is dead
Rock an Roll is dead
Rock an Roll is dead
Rock an Roll is... dead
Rock an Roll is dead
Rock an Roll is dead

Cool End of 1995

So we've just about covered everything in 1995, but as always, there's most likely more we can find about that year later and post later. Before we continue on into the next year in our rock and roll history installment, I leave you with a curious quote:

A certain business entourage member of a very famous band said that he would kill himself if the group with whom he was associated "cut their hair."

Who was that band in question?

We will find out--and the answer may surprise you--when we return, in the year 1996!!!

And before we get to that, here are three other musical events of 1995. . . .

Talking September 1995 - The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Opens!

On Labor Day Weekend, 1995, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, nearly a decade in the making, finally opened its doors in its edgy new building in Cleveland, Ohio. Why Cleveland? Well, for two reasons. One is that Alan Freed, the DJ who bravely integrated pop radio and pop concerts in the fifties and invented the term "rock and roll," was from Cleveland.

The second reason was. . . CLEVELAND ROCKS!!



Edgily designed by I.M. Pei to reflect rock's chaotic spirit, the hall of fame/museum became an instant hit with the public, though some sourpuss critics complained it was nothing more than a collection of old guitars and and old clothes. But the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame had already produced a worthy roster of artists to be honored, so it still had something resembling credibility.

Then, once the Hall was done, the RRHOF's directors - led by Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner - proceeded to squander its credibility. We'll get to some examples later.

TV 1995 - "Hee Haw" canceled

Before there was "Blue Collar TV," there was "Hee Haw."



A cross between "American Bandstand," "Laugh-In," and a NASCAR tailgate party, "Hee Haw" was the place to watch country music's greatest stars perform their hits and act silly along with a cast of folks that could only be described as characters, who were apparently fond of denim overalls. "Hee Haw" was praised for bringing redneck culture to the fore. It was also condemned. . . for bringing redneck culture to the fore!

Okay, it did have Roy Clark (pictured with banjo), who's one of the most accomplished guitarists who ever played country and western. But a lot of its good-ol'-boy humor would have embarassed Billy Carter, and probably did.

Anyway, "Hee Haw" ended its long, long, long run in 1995, the victim to changing tastes and changing times. Rock fans were smug about it. Surely something like that would never happen to rock radio!

A few weeks after "Hee Haw" went off the air, Newt Gingrich gave a speech in Florida in which he unironically declared that America had the most superior culture in the world. Well, sure, now that "Hee Haw" had been canceled.

Unhappy December 1995 - Charlie Rich dies

A far greater loss to country music was the death of Charlie Rich at the end of 1995.



Rich, pictured above, got his start at Sun Records as a composer, seesion pinaist, and recording artist. His greatest hit came in 1973, with the boudoir ballad "Behind Closed Doors," whose line "Then she lets her hair hand down / And she makes me glad that I am a man" summed up everything good about intimacy from the male point of view.

Rich was called the "Silver Fox" for his shimmering gray hair, but he was best known for his strong yet tender voice. He was the heart of country music in many ways, and country almost didn't recover from his passing.
