This is one of my all-time favorite “pump-myself-up” tracks. It’s simply amazing in both the Mad Cobra & Robyns versions. Robyns performance on Letterman show is simply one energy boost of the ages. The lyrics here are not that much to talk about, but the entire feeling of the songs hits the right spots for me.
One early morning in mid-May 1998, police were called to a hotel in Malmö. Several guests have complained about a loud party that never seems to want to put an end to the after-party.
When the patrol opens the door, they are met by total chaos. A large hole has been drilled in the ceiling, someone has sprayed glue over the carpet and the toilet is full of debris. The floor in the corridor is covered with pills and sequins. In the middle of the mess are five disillusioned musicians in their 20s. Some of them are drawn with lines on the face. It is reminiscent of war paintings.
Sorry to Say it … Cunt … but you’re Fired! This song has to be the best “Fuck off” song ever written to a politican. Although it’s funny as hell, it also have every single word hit him right in his carrot demon face. In 2 minutes and 17 seconds Van Buuren succedes with including a lot. not a single word is a filler….
The song is sung from the viewpoint of the Queen of Hearts in Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. The music video for “Heads Will Roll” was directed by Richard Ayoade. It features the band playing in a (presumably) underground venue when a dancing werewolf (whose dancing is reminiscent of Michael Jackson) appears on stage. A light flashes halfway through the music video and the werewolf transforms. He then proceeds to chase after the audience and kills most of them. The video then ends with the band having been murdered while Karen O continues singing, her head severed from her body……
9/10 … Polish webstore with a focus on rock, hard rock and heavy metal. The website is in Polish, but in the top right corner you can make it English friendly by switching language.
I mainly turn to them when I want bootleg vinyls from 1980’s Heavy Metal bands, but they seem to have a lot of obscure 1970’s rock and prog.
Quick registered shipping from them with good shipping prices. But it seems the Polish postal service is not the fastest in the world. So shipping here to Sweden (almost neighbour countries) it takes about 10 days to receive the package from placing the order.
I have ordered two times and I will definitely return for more. Hopefully I can visit the store as well one day.
9/10 … This is a real coffee table book, 436 pages and a wooping 31x25cm. I sat down with a cup of cooffe and started at the begining. I was imiditlly sucked into this amazing universe and 6 hours later I was still at it. Writting down for me new titles to discover and listening to them on Spotify to see if I wanted to hunt down the vinyl. Another aspect I love about this kind of books is that I feel less crazy for spending so much time and so much money on music. There’s a whole lot of other people out there that are the same.
9/10 … The opening tracks “Beatnik Boy” and “My Best Friend” are just amazing pop songs, and after that the party just keeps going. You will have a big smile all over your face and it’s hard to sit still. This should be the template of how soft pop should be made. Fantastic stuff, with stand-out tracks like “Beatnik Boy”, “My Best Friend”, “Don’t Go Away” and “Testcard Girl”.
A Channel 4 special of about 8 hours, divided into 7 parts. Unfortunatly part 4 is missing. I hope they will re-upload that one. The hosts are kind of cheezy, but it’s a awesome time capsule of the era. At the bottom you find a concert with Oasis and one With Pulp from that very […]
Nina Gordon and Louise Post could be the coolest persons of any band in the 1990’s to front a band. Ok, maybe not cooler than Courtney Love (Hole), but they are up there with Liam Gallagher (Oasis) and Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth). There’s just something about these two that feels free, totally free with that ”I don’t give a f*’k” attitude that I’m a sucker for. No intention of playing any games, just natural cool. Just look at the Glastonbury YouTube video down below and you might get what I mean.
10/10 … lI ove each and every one of these tracks, but if I would have a gun to my head, then I choose the opening tracks beautiful dreamy tones,”Tone burst”. The monotone fuzz of ”Our Trenton blast”, the calm summer day beautiful feel of “Pak yr romantic mind”, the amazing Spacemen 3ish “Golden Ball” and of course the grinding monotone “Jenny Ondioline”. Okay, that makes five tracks, but WTF, I’m only human!
8/10 … Personally I’m mainly interested in the creation and recording of the different Sonic Youth albums and if you are the same you will get a bit disapointed.
9/10 … Opening with the banger “Split Myself in Two”, the mood is set and I wonder why it was proberly 15 years ago since I last listened to this record …
8/10 … Malaria was an all female band from Berlin, Germany. They where part of the No-wave / Neue Deutsche Welle movement and blended rock, synth-pop, new wave with a very minimal sounding touch…
