Uncut February 2006 CD: New Music for 2006

The February 2006 issue of Uncut includes "rare archive interviews" with Bob Dylan, John Lennon, the Beach Boys, and the Who in celebration of the 40th anniversary of "rock music's revolutionary awakening." Apparently 1966 was teh bomb.

The theme of this month's Uncut CD, however, is "New Music for 2006". It includes Clap Your Hands Say Yeah's "Over And Over Again (Lost And Found)", coincidentally marking its 40th inclusion on a magazine compilation disc. Congrats to the Clap Your Hands kids. While the irony of "Over And Over Again"'s recurring role in magazine CDs has some humor value, I hope it will be retired at some point. Plus, while it's a great song, "new music for 2006"? Not so much!

You're welcome... I think it's so lovely and of course somewhat creepy.
