Live Ledge #72: Jukebox Hero

Anybody who follows me on twitter or Facebook knows the big news - I now own a jukebox! For a price way below what I have found on previous queries paid for a four hundred pound behemoth that took four people to haul up my living room stairs. 
I love this new machine, but it does have a few issues. Namely, it slows down after a few plays. It's quite jarring to hear a song suddenly go to half its original speed. I've been assured, though, by Music From the Farside DJ Drazzle that this is a common problem that can be fixed for next to nothing. We'll see about that!
So tonight's show is partly inspired by this purchase, as there are tons of songs about these grand ol' machines. The other half of the show consists of nothing but brand new releases, as skipping the last couple of weeks has led to some built up tunes that deserve playing. Hell, one of them (Redd Kross' new album, Researching the Blues) came to me halfway through the show and was thrown in with no preview.
Oh yeah, and we also mourn the anniversary of the breakup of the Replacements with a handful of tracks from their final performance in Chicago on July 4, 1991.
