Clicky shuffle

Welcome to our daily micro-column, the Clicky shuffle. Each morning, a Click Track contributor shares the first five songs that pop up on their portable mp3 device.

Wanna play along? Share five random songs of your own in the comments.

I'm hoping to catch Cloud Nothings next week at SXSW. And pray as I might for an Elastica reunion, too, it's not gonna happen. A recent where-are-they-now feature in Spin magazine says that Elastica founder Justine Frischmann is working happily as a painter in San Rafael, California.

- Cloud Nothings, "Hey Cool Kid"
- Elastica, "Car Song"
- Hot Snakes, "If Credit's What Matters, I'll Take Credit"
- James Brown, "Super Bad"
- Scritti Politti, "Wood Beez (Pray Like Aretha Franklin)"

Thanks Hoodrat. But who had/has better facial hair: Shel or King Khan?

well, depends on whether you're going for dignity or for might-snap-at-any-moment-and-turn-a-flamethrower-on-the-crowd. which is not to suggest that shel was actually dignified. i'm quite sure he wasn't but his facial hair exuded manly charm and grace.
