I’m not going to deny the synesthetic appeal of songs with words about pictures, but there is something additionally poignant about the mood created that seems to stand out. The images called forth serve a variety of purposes, from the reminiscent to the hedonistic, but just like your family album, the whole thing works out because it has to.

In this episode: A Giant Dog, Against All Authority, Bishop Allen, Camper Van Beethoven, Chaz & The Motorbikes, Datarock , Dopo Yume, Elvis Costello & The Attractions, Ito-k, King Leg, Niños Con Bombas, Skankin' Pickle, Status Quo, Treat Her Right, True Love, Uncle Tupelo, The Who, Young Fresh Fellows
