I Used To Hate You But Now I Love You

This month's Challenge got me to thinking: with 'hate' being such a profound and powerful emotion, isn't it odd that there are really so few songs that really employ it as an idea or as inspiration? I mean, 'love'? Heck, you can't spit without hitting a love song, but hate, that's a different story. So anyway, this is a song of hate and love. Love and hate. Simple as that. Video here.

Whole Bag of Wrong

Here's another one from the Smoke Benders' recent Hokuriku tour. Clocking in at 8 minutes, it's a wee bit longer than previously posted tunes here. It goes through summa them changes and all, and includes some psychedelic diddley bow solos. Video here.
