Random Tracks, Kittens & Queen's Birthday Special

As I sit here, I have a gorgeous kitten curled up in my lap (Fantoma, the tortoiseshell, FYI). Probably not the most ergonomic situation, but them's the breaks when you adopt cats.

Today, I'm posting some random tracks that have been getting a little bit more attention than others on my various listening devices. I've got a few ideas for some future posts, including another SA Great Special Edition, so come back soon.

This first one is dedicated to Moss, and all the nice pieces of ass in Boy's Club:

Ween - Boy's Club (Mollusk outtake)

While we're on the topic:

The Frogs - Sailors Board Me Now

I still pronounce 'Roky' phonetically. I can't help it.

Roky Erickson - I Have Always Been Here Before (from 'Gremlins Have Pictures') (which I got from the DigitalMeltd0wn blog, to whom I give huge thanks)

And yet I pronounce Brujeria beautifully, if I do say so myself. Brujeria have a wikipedia entry, which I recommend reading if you are unaware of them.

Brujeria - Castigo Del Brujo

Guido and Maurizio de Angelis are freaking amazing. I've been listening to a few of their Spaghetti Western scores, via From the Negative Zone, an excellent source for scores. I want to cover this song so bad.

G. & M. de Angelis - Keoma

My belief is that Aphex Twin's 'Alberto Balsam' is made up of samples taken from a hair salon. I've got absolutely nothing to back that up, but the hi-hat sounds like a pair of scissors, and there's a great noise that sounds like a wooden chair being pushed back along a wooden floor (which is reminiscent of StrongBad's Geddup Noise). And there's the fact it's named after a particular hair care brand...

Aphex Twin - Alberto Balsam

It's the Queen's Birthday public holiday here in Adelaide. So here's some Queen. This is a brilliant album track from 'The Works'.

Queen - Machines (or Back to Humans)

I've fallen in love with Matt Berry, aka Dixon Bainbridge in the 'Mighty Boosh' first season or Dr Lucien Sanchez/Todd Rivers in 'Garth Marenghi's Darkplace'. I just started watching 'Snuff Box', after finding bits n' pieces on youtube and declare it to be true comedy genius. And there's one particular 'woo-aahh-oh' in this track that just makes me swoon.

Matt Berry & Rich Fulcher - Takin' Control of Her Body

And here's 'One Track Lover', from 'Darkplace'.

And, to finish up, a brilliant DJ STV SLV, from The Hood Internet, mash:

DJ STV SLV - Girls Just Wanna Fix Up (Cyndi Lauper & Dizzee Rascal)

Happy birthday, Liz!
