Here’s Your #TapeTuesday! The Rentals – Friends Of P. (1995)

Here's your #TapeTuesday. After the success of Weezer's 1994 self-titled debut (The Blue Album) bassist Matt Sharp booked studio time to record some of his new wave/ synth pop ideas. Instead of releasing your average solo album, Sharp recruited Pat Wilson from Weezer, put on a shabby looking suit, threw on some grubby looking glasses and deemed this new band "The Rentals." This is the "Cassingle" for the track "Friends Of P." which peaked at #7 on Billboards Modern Rock Chart due to it's ultra-catchy chorus of "If you're friends of P, well then you're friends with me." Flanked by Petra Haden and Cherielynn Westrich's sultry but robot-like background vocals, and Tom Grimley's blasting Moog lines, Matt Sharp had stepped out of Weezer's shadow. The backstory of the song is that it's about Ric Ocasek's super model wife Paulina Porizkova. During the sessions of Weezer's Blue Album (which Ocasek produced) Paulina claimed that no one had ever written a song about her. Sharp took on the task despite Ocasek's reservations about the idea. However the upbeat, friendly song eventually won everyone over. Weezer's label Geffen would not allow Petra and Pat's faces on the Cassingle cover so they were airbrushed out. The debut Rentals album, ironically titled Return Of The Rentals was released in October 1995 on Madonna's boutique label Maverick. It remains a great, singular sound in the midst of the post-grunge 90s. Purchased at Musicland in Oakbrook, IL December 1995. #TheRentals #MattSharp #PatWilson #PetraHaden #RachelHaden #TomGrimley #CherielynnWestrich #RodCervera #FriendsOfP #ReturnOfTheRentals

Here’s Your #TapeTuesday! Bush – Sixteen Stone (1995)

Here's your #TapeTuesday. Hailing from Shepherd's Bush, a neighborhood in London, songwriter Gavin Rossdale and guitarist Nigel Pulsford recorded this album rich with ear-candy melodies and full of the then-fashionable self-loathing grunge ideals. When Hollywood records (a subsidiary of Disney) deemed the record too edgy, Interscope snatched it up and the rest is history. Gavin's handsome grunge looks and his handsome grunge hooks (how do you like that rhyme) catapulted the band into superstardom, and Sixteen Stone birthed five hit singles all over MTV and rock radio in the two years following Kurt Cobain's death. Fun fact: Sixteen Stone is actually 224 lbs which is the weight of a woman that a friend of the band met for a date after reading an embellished singles-dating ad. This album is part of the soundtrack of my summer 1995. Purchased July 1995 at Coconuts Music & Video in Westmont, IL. #Bush #SixteenStone #GavinRossdale #NigelPulsford #RobinGoodridge #DaveParsons #CliveLanger #AlanWinstanley #Interscope #Trauma #EverythingZen #LittleThings #Glycerine #Comedown #Machinehead
