Big Black Heartbeat

No, it is not that bad joke.

I was like 14 yrs old. I had just bought my first ever and only so far electric bass guitar. And me and my sister had rent this on CD by Big Black. Or maybe a friend of hers lent it to us. Can't recall. I spent days and weeks and months playing my first bass notes on this song and singing it, such it was easy English to me to understand. Abrasive, acid, vitriol like distorted, fuzzed guitar / bass notes, oh dear how much I loved and still today love this song. 
Only years later I found out it was an original track by Wire, then I started to listen to this other seminal punk band. What a "atomizer" track! 

"At a sold-out show in London for 1,300 people, Bruce Gilbert and Graham Lewis of Wire joined Big Black onstage to play an encore of Wire's "Heartbeat" [..] Albini wrote of the experience that "If I die right now it will all have been worth it.""

Have a safe trip Steve, so long and thanks for all the fish.

"Try to squeeze a drop of blood
From a sugarcube"

From Uncut: "I think it was shown on MTV once, maybe twice”, - Yo La Tengo on “Sugarcube” and working with Bob Odenkirk: “He's a genius”

First time in my life I bumped into this official video for  YLT Sugarcube. Then I noticed Jimmy McGill! How cool.. "He has, it turns out, been a Yo La Tengo fan since the early '90s."

Thank you YT suggestions algorithm.
