St. Vincent Guest DJ

Before her show at The Palace Theatre in Greensburg with David Byrne, Annie Clark stopped by to play Guest DJ with Cindy Howes of the Morning Mix.  Annie Clark starts off her Guest DJ set with David Bowie's "It's No Game (Part 1). "I just love it.  Robert Fripp is playing guitar on it and I'm such a fan of his guitar playing.  It's from the record Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps).  I think a lot of people wouldn't say is their favorite Bowie record, but it's mine for whatever reason."  

The second song for Annie Clark's Guest DJ set is Stevie Wonder's "Maybe Your Baby."  "That track is just one of my go to songs.  I probably listen to that once or more a week."  Clark goes on to comment on what Stevie Wonder meant to both her and groove music, " Stevie Wonder is kind of the king of groove.  What I think a lot of people don't realize is he wasn't just playing keyboard and singing.  He was really ahead of his time and tracking most of the instruments himself. He's actually one of the best drummers I've heard."  

For the final song of her Guest DJ set, Annie Clark has chosen Big Black's "Passing Complexion."  "I'm a big Steve Albini fan. It's from his first band, Big Black. The song is just Steve Albini and a drum machine and it still manages to be very powerful."

1. David Bowie "It's No Game (Part 1)"
