Accordion, Instrument of the Gods Music

Turner’s Take on the Clark Hall Pub Hitlist

Inspired by both his wife Ashley’s take and my quick post on the tunes on his Clark [Hall Pub] Standards playlist, Chris “Turner” Turner has written up notes on his selections. He’s very kind to me in his writeup for Sloan’s unrequited university love anthem Underwhelmed and has one of the most bang-on summaries of Nine Inch Nails’ Head Like a Hole (which at the time, had probably never been played on accordion):

This was a mainstay of the Clark setlist during my first two years at Queen’s and my introduction to industrial. I liked it. It was far heavier than most of the hair metal I grew up on, but (at least on this track) much smarter and more insightful. Plus no clumsy references to Norse mythology or motorcycles.
