Party!! Myspace night at Catch/London Wed 30th.

I'm a man who loves ideas AND SKILLS!! So I thought it would be great to do a party in London with only music from new mostly unsigned artists with songs you could download for free on Myspace. So I got some dudes I like with skills to come down and play with me, Casper from Fluokids and the guys from Skulljuice. I figured between us you're going to hear a lot of new tunes that are may be actually quite good. Like these:






Hope to see you there.

Disco Beach Party 2 (cheesy!)

So I got to post what I find in the bin, right? I was sensitive that maybe people were thinking I was on some new rave 90's come back bandwagon. So maybe I am, but I still posted this cassette because the absolute biggest without question bold caps you can't debate theme of now (and maybe the last 10 years) is IRONY! Feel free to contradict me, but I have an argument for everyone. It's all irony now. Along with some surrealism.

The very bad but amusing N-N-Nineteen Not Out was apparently the first project of Rory Bremner, parodying, of course, the excellent Nineteen by Paul Hardcastle which perhaps took itself a tad seriously being before the era of irony. My favorite track on here is The Clapping Song. And I almost did not include The Tweets in this post because even I do find it very annoying.

Side A

1 - The Tweets - Birdie Song
2 - Shirley Ellis - The Clapping Song
3 - Divine - Twistin' the Night Away
4 - Rustie Lee - My Toot Toot
5 - Goombay Dance Band - Seven Tears
6 - Sylvia - Viva Espana
7 - Jonathan King - Una Paloma Blanca
8 - The Commentators - N-N-Nineteen Not Out

Side B

1 - Evelyn Thomas - High Energy
2 - David Christie - Saddle Up
3 - Len Barry - 1-2-3
4 - Racey - Some Girls
5 - Anita Ward - Ring My Bell
6 - Imagination - Body Talk
7 - Kelly Marie - Feels Like I'm In Love

The Hit Factory - Stock Aitken Waterman

I thought it was time to post something a little less obscure from the cassette bins. Most of these tracks are probably well known so I'm not going to post much commentary. If you can, let me know in the comments what your favorite track is of this genre.

Stock Aitken and Waterman are still doing things. Here is a link to Waterman's website with news, etc. He's behind Lola apparently, some pop girl I'm not down with. And there are rumours that Stock Aitken and Waterman are going to come back and run a reality show about pop or something. Here is an amusing article reflecting their personalities and what's going on now.

And make sure you head over and pick up the excellent Run Disco Run - Moxie 008. It's very good, at Dilate Choonz.

Also, pick up this excellent remix of Army of Lovers - I'm Crucified (razrmaid mix). I have always loved this tune.

Side 1

1 Rick Astley Never Gonna Give You Up

2 Sinitta Toy Boy Extra Muscle Mix

3 Princess I'll Keep On Loving You

4 Bananarama I Heard a Rumour

5 Hazell Dean Whatever I Do

6 Mondo Kane featuring Georgie Fame - New York Afternoon

7 Ferry Aid Let It Be

Side 2

mmmm . . . the making of Venus. Too many moments to smile about. Check out the oiled dancers under the cape and the Italian honey directing them.
