This song was only issued as a flexidisc with the "Guter Abzug" multimedia package, combining 100 photos by ArGeeGleim (email@example.com ) (you can get a digital version there), Song lyrics edited by Peter Glaser, copies of fanzines, posters and a copy of ths flexidisc by austrian "artist" and just-be-er Xao Seffcheque. In 1981 he made a record called "Sehr gut kommt sehr gut" on Atatak Records. On this he recorded songs that sounded like then famous Underground bands of the time (Kraftwerk also among them!), but he recorded them all on his own, and they sounded like the originals! I almost believed him too, unfortunately (now) I did not buy the record back then, now I am dependant on anyone offering mp3s...
That was a nice media scam back then!
For "Guter Abzug" Xao recorded a New German Underground on 45 like the Stars on 45 of the time : Sterne on 45
A live version recorded at Birmingham (UK)'s sadly now defunct Default club nights from all the way back in 2003. (I see a couple of Tilliander's tracks have already made it through gabba but unfortunately now seem unavailable) Those warm electronics are sadly missed although Stef and John Xela continue to impress with Type Records' output and have released more of Andreas Tilliander's work under his Mokira alias. This particular track dates from the same time as the ''Dutty & Digital EP but I'm not sure of the title - the live set was split that night between majestic dub electronics and stellar techno (although unexplainably the comp. recording on the website [defaultresponse.com] has reversed the actual order in which they came). The music that night filled a surprisingly empty room with a wash of sub-bass and to this day it still sends a shiver down my spine. Enjoy.
To that end, I have been trying and trying to come up with a description that would make this song sound like something that a reasonable human would want to listen to, and I still don't know what to tell you. In a nutshell, Phoenix have released a full on soft rock album, you can't dance to it, and this song is the softest, least danceable of the lot. But even for all that, I can't think of a more perfect summer song: it's effortlessly laid back, sweetly melodic, and so earnestly bittersweet that even though you should revile it for the chugging guitars on general princple alone, it's so offhandedly gorgeous that you just can't. I realize that this is a bit abstract, but to me, it perfectly captures how a summer fling feels : it's simple and uncomplicated and just what you needed, and when it ends you're not upset or bitter, but when you look back on it you look back on it with a smile and just the slightest of twinges in your heart (plus, there's a winking Joy Division reference in the drums in the first bar, so it's not a completely guilty pleasure.)It's a great song, a great album, I love it, it's summer, and enjoy.
We don't have the Car Boots like that in Sweden, but there are these flea markets. People bring their crap (at least 99% of it) and sell it. I got this a couple of years ago on such a market and paid like 5 swedish kr for it.
I love old Wham tracks. Don't know why.
When alot of the mid '80s stuff is gloomy and doomy, wham made everything shine. I still like mix it in my sets now and then
This track is off a 7" double A side. It's the longest track I've ever seen on a 7" single (and when you hear the sound quality, you know why). On top of that the record is coloured with some serious scratch/cue noises that I've added during the years.
I guess that's the sound of a record you really like.
Slackness. Most dancehall tracks get away with some of the more explicit/dodgy lyrics by translating them into such heavy patois/nonsense that to a non jamaican they could be talking about almost anything, so here's something a bit more obvious and probably very offensive. The minimal riddim (nookie) really makes me wanna turn this up to 11, but its probably not a good idea in a built up area..(NSFW)
I don't really understand all the DJ rambles about in all them Jamaican stuff, but I love it still. I turn that right back to you all. Swedish skank, an excellent soundtrack for a summer night out. The Latin Kings are the swedish hip hop oldies. In broken swedish, featuring Daddy Boastin, they explain why they are the best.
Rember indie? Well i don't, apparently it was something white guys did to make smart girls sleep with them. Today smart girls only want to sleep with two men in the entire world (diplo and spankrock, sad but true) and that has apparently made som indie-rock dudes from the past pretty f**ked up. One of them started to ramble about white people, syncopated beats and rasiscm. Well Dear Nora & Casiotone For The Painfully Alone has made the best indie track EVVER! A cover of Missy Elliots hot boyz that is oozing of cocaine, booze, bad drugs, bad clubs, guns and f**king + other things that indie-kids hold close to their hearts.

Here's a all new mix (podcast soon I guess), all sorts of styles, I'm not sure my indecision in sticking to a style works on this one, and it skits around a bit, but I can guarantee that all the tracks are great, maybe the sequence isn't.

on sabbatical. He had a Nintendo Gamecube that we played after we finished,
and his mother gave me this song. It's a Japanese single by the J-pop/techno/
rap band the Tongari Kids, and it's titled "B-Dash" for holding the B button down
to dash in Super Mario Bros. It went from 36th to 6th on the Japanese music
chart; hope you enjoy!
This was released on the short-lived Stinkbomb records a couple of years ago, when the label disappeared so did the track - yet it's still popular with certain djs on the south coast of England.
4 to the floor 4 dance, but you soon realise there's a whole lot more to it than that.
If you like banging electro from New Zealand that is...
This one includes glimpses of the future as well as from the past. It´s warm, yet cold and mechanic, as you can see/hear, conrtradiction (in a positive way) haunts this tune!
Downtempo Remix on a great track, originally writed by Gleb Kalinin also known as a Jeune Homme made by Lost Kluster. Electric beats, deep bass and melody... thats all.
This is my favorite song!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There have been so many bands on gabba recently that I never heard of, call me an old fart, but once and again you need something to shed your tears with, even if it is tears of joy!
Just hang loose with this on replay! It works if you are happy or sad!
The cover has more than a wiff of the TSW logo about it..

Jazzy housey remix of a song from a star wars movie. Sounds bizzare well its bloody awesome. You won't have heard anything like this b4. You might have seen another song by North Shore Pony Club called"computer games". Check out their video on youtube and myspace.com/northshoreponyclub for some more tunes if you like what you hear.
Live, THE MAD CONDUCTOR is a 5 piece band featuring Chris Tray (a.k.a MC Devlin) on lead vocals and guitar, Rob Sadler (a.k.a Big Bird) on guitar and vocals, Danny Sadler (a.k.a Sinister Minister) on bass and vocals, Matt City (a.k.a. Matt City) on drums and vocals, and Dillan Reichl (a.k.a. DJ Rikal the Murderer) on Keyboards and percussion. Tight, energetic perfomances laced with humorous theatrics and psychedelic crowd pleasers set this band apart from other lame acts with no creativity.
If you don't enjoy the vocals in the first half, I could understand, I personally like them, but wait until the second half and check it out too. If you like what you hear, check their myspace and give them a further listen.
In this 1990 classic, penned by Pete whylie, Margie Clarke spits her list of imperfect things through gritted teeth. The obvious contempt for every item listed in her oration makes every word sound spiky and poisonous, her spiteful tone and her wonderful scouse accent wrapping each word in layers of rusty barbed wire. Apparently it was used by Morrisey as intro music on a recent tour and although some of the things that make the list have lost their significance over the intervening 16 years since it's creation many remain targets of contempt today.
Produced by Andrew Weatherall there's also a much longer and more 'Weatherally' sounding version but it's break beat and heavy saxophone have dated it more than this shorter version which despite it's age retains much of it's power and venom.
I wonder what would be included in an imperfect list written today?
So a track about my hometown (nearly), Birmingham isn't really manchester in terms of musical heritage (erm, 40 years of metal and ocean color scene...) , so its hard to find much stuff that references it, and to be fair this doesn't really either, but its very quiet round here, anyone got any tracks about there hometown (sorry london doesn't really count, unless you can get postcode specific..) ?
Oher than the personal associations this is a vintage Nancy Sinatra / Lee Hazelwood B side, strings like a southern grawl and Nancys voice, you can't really go wrong..
