Only Sleeping

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

Been a bit quiet around these parts lately.  So let’s puncture that silence with a couple of excellent tunes containing mouth-organs.

Sorry, did you need a reason?

Psychemagik – Whoopin’ The Booze

Lemon Interupt – Bigmouth

(You all remember who Lemon Interupt became, don’t you?  Hint: It’s Underworld)

Rock Out With Your Mock Out

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

Afternoon.  (That was going to be “morning” but my website mysteriously disappeared for a while.)

In need of some big hair, loud guitars, and a good laugh, I found myself on YouTube this morning.  There I found this excellent little ditty which is vaguely reminiscent of some things I once knew.  Not sure if you’ll remember them.  Something to do with royalty…

Rock Sugar – We Will Kickstart Your Rhapsody

Timber

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

Oh, hello there.  What’s that?  You’d like something interesting to listen to on this breezy Tuesday afternoon?  Well, young scamp, you’ve come to the right place.

Has it really been nearly fifteen years since this was produced?  Lawks.  This old-timer was too busy complaining about tedious house and trying to avoid grunge at the time, thus discovering this sometime in the following millennium.  Still, a classic piece of AV that everyone should have in their life:

Coldcut & Hexstatic – Timber

No Regrets

Monday, February 7th, 2011

I occasionally go through spates of listening to The Walker Brothers, usually after they pop up on the Radio 2 playlist and are quickly promoted to my stereo on rotation.

However, one thing I didn’t know until moments ago was that Midge Ure covered No Regrets.  It sounds exactly how you’d expect it to:
