Forgotten Songs: Huffamoose "Wait"

Huffamoose were a Philadelphia band that released three albums in the '90s and early '00s. I think I heard more, but this song is the only one I remember. "Wait" is from their second album, We've Been Had Again, released in 1997.






I have no idea what's up with the Adidas logo in the video.

Forgotten Songs: Papa M "So Warped"

Papa M is the alias of prolific musician David Pajo, formerly of bands such as Slint and Tortoise (and, after this, a member of Billy Corgan's Zwan). This pretty song comes from the Songs of Mac EP, released in 2002. Apparently, for the EP, two Louisville writers submitted words for Pajo to sing and accompany. Aubrey Rozier is the lyricist for this song.

Forgotten Songs: Thinking Fellers Union Local 282 "My Pal The Tortoise"

This wacky song is from San Francisco band Thinking Fellers Union Local 282's fifth album, Strangers from the Universe, released in 1994. The band would go on to release another album in 1996, then one in 2001, and have been dormant since. I know this song off the What's Up Matador? compilation that came out in 1997, featuring songs from Matador Records' storied history. Fun!

Forgotten Songs: Rainer Maria "The Contents of Lincoln's Pockets"

Rainer Maria released five albums on Polyvinyl Records between 1997 and 2006 (they also had a few EPs during that time). I really enjoyed their 2001 album, A Better Version of Me. This track, which relates the contents of Lincoln's pockets the night he died, is from that album (though it was my third choice to use here; I couldn't find the first two, "Thought I Was" and "Hell and High Water", online). While I never saw a "real" show by the band, I saw them play an in-store performance at Easy Street Records in Seattle in summer 2006. They broke up at the end of that year.

This wonderful story set to music is from Recoil, which started as a side project for Depeche Mode's Alan Wilder, but developed into a full-time band after he left Depeche Mode in 1995. This song is from Recoil's fourth album, 1997's Unsound Methods. The vocals are provided by poet Maggie Estep.
