The actual recording for this show had too much static on the line so I redid it as two mixes and have included my notes so you can see how it all fits together. The only bummer is the Twilight Singers track won't transfer into my DJ software so I had to pull it from this set. Sorry. Original set list is here = http://wrir.org/index.php?/blog/entry/6777/
Mark Lanegan is a 47 year old American rock musician and singer-songwriter. Born and raised in Ellensburg, Washington, Lanegan began his career in music with the band Screaming Trees in 1985 along with members with Gary Lee Conner, Van Conner and Mark Pickerel. During his time in the band, Lanegan also started a low-key solo career and released his first solo studio album, The Winding Sheet, in 1990. The Trees officially called it quits in 2000 and since 1990, he has released 7 solo albums and is perhaps better known for many of his varied and many collaborations.

Mark is best known for his baritone, rough, and weary tone that practically allows you to count every cigarette he ever smoked. Every cocktail he has ever consumed.


Anarchy In The U.K. 3:32 Sex Pistols Nevermind The Bollocks

Enthralled by a picture of The Stooges in an old copy of Creem, the 12-year-old Mark Lanegan had celebrated entering junior high school by trading his collection of comic books for a slew of imported punk singles that somehow made it to Ellensburg. These records - by the Sex Pistols, The Damned, The Stranglers, and Mark's personal favourite, Where Have All The Bootboys Gone by Slaughter And The Dogs - told this troubled teen he was not alone. "When I heard Anarchy In The UK it suddenly all made sense. I knew
who I was.

Where Have All the Boot Boys Gone 3:11 Slaughter & The Dogs

Real Cool Time 2:32 The Stooges

Where the Twain Shall Meet 3:29 Screaming Trees- Buzz Factory - 4th full length album by Seattle band Screaming Trees and their final record released through SST Records in 1989.

The Fire of Love 2:09 The Gun Club Miami - gun club - "Jeffrey Lee Pierce’s singing voice was really intense. To this day, he’s still probably my favourite singer of all time. " -ML

Twenty Four Hours 4:28 Joy Division Closer - M in reference to this record "Sometimes when you hear something that’s mirroring something that’s happening in your life – so much so that it hurts – it makes you feel better."

The End 6:30 The Doors Greatest Hits -Often compared to Jim Morrison vocally.

By the Screaming Trees 5th release they were picked up by a major label, had major success compared to their indie popularity by appearing in soundtracks like Singles but minor success compared to Pearl Jam, Soundgarden or Nirvana - other Northwest bands
that better fit into the grunge mold that the trees never quite matched up with.

See Through (Album) 3:07 Mike Johnson Where Am I? - long time collaborator on his solo records. Peer in the Northwest. Snakepit / Dino Jr. member

The Beast In Me 2:28 Nick Lowe - The Impossible Bird - the only good thing about the Hangover II was Lanegans cover of this song.

Cafe 5:28 Tim Buckley - Blue Afternoon - Lanegan covers on a tribute album

Shiloh Town 3:09 Tim Hardin Simple Songs Of Freedom: The Tim Hardin - I'll Take Care of You is the fourth solo album by former Screaming Trees vocalist Mark Lanegan. This album consists of cover songs including a cover of this Tim Hardin song.

Ugly Sunday 3:58 Mark Lanegan The Winding Sheet - departure from the Trees sound - debut solo - good friend Kurt Cobain sings while on the Leadbelly classic "Where Did You Sleep Last Night" Cobain contributes guitar and vocals and Krist Novoselic plays bass. Nirvana would later cover "Where Did You Sleep Last Night" on their Unplugged album.The album is produced by Mike Johnson, who also co-wrote many of the songs.

Hanky Panky Nohow 2:46 John Cale Paris 1919 -"This one in particular is great and his has three of my all-time favourite songs on it. It has a great sense of melancholy. ‘Why are you singing about elephants and cows and why is that making me so sad?’ But it does
because the melody is so incredible. It makes me feel sad but in the best possible way." - ML

Number Nine 6:32 The Twilight Singers - Blackberry Belle - Greg Duli post Afghan Whigs - second full-length album released by The Twilight Singers. It was released by One Little Indian Records on October 14, 2003 - SORRY MP3 WOULDN'T WORK IN THIS SHOW TRANSFER

Mark already had 4 solo releases out as well as some collabs by the time the trees broke up in 2000. In and out of rehabs but by the early 2000 had finally cleaned himself up. It was pretty simple, either continue on the path he was and die or get clean and live, keep making
music. We nearly lost Mark there for a decade or so but he has proven that clean living hasn't made his music or his voice any less potent.

Coming Home 4:44 Maggie Bjorklund - Coming Home - sings on two songs from this release

More Influences :

The Thrill Of It All (1999 Digital Remaster) 6:25 Roxy Music Country Life - "There have been four or five-hour periods of my time where I’ve had ‘The Thrill of It All’ on repeat as I did stuff around my house. The whole record is fantastic. Again, so many of their records are great but this one in particular is my favourite" - ML
On Every Train (Grain Will Bear Grain) 5:25 Crime and the City Solution Shine - Crime and the City Solutions - "This is a really sad song but it has a sort of imagery that has a dignity to it. It’s hard to put your finger on but
it’s really compelling. " - ML
