micro-blog from music lovers sharing their passion

Warmduscher – Neon Tongues

The B-Side to the band’s new single “Big Wilma”, out now. This is all cheap drum machines, fuzzy synths, and spoken word (word!).

You can go to their bandcamp page and support them.


Kraftwerk – Köln II (1971)

The birth of NEU!, live on German TV back in 1971.

Devo – The Day My Baby Gave Me A Surprise

New Wave power Pop from the band’s second album, 1979’s ‘Duty Now For The Future’.

Soul Capsule – Lady Science (NYC Sunrise)

Baby Ford and Thomas Melchior come up with some lush Deep House on this track from 1999.

The Residents – Safety Is A Cootie Wootie

This 1983 track was intended to be part of a bigger project. However, the band were in disarray after the disastrous ‘Mole Show’, and it took a while for things to get off of the ground afterwards. It’s a shame, as this track in particular is very strong, and really showcases that analogue electronics Residents sound that they were touting from The Commercial Album/Mark of the Mole era. Great song.

Infiniti – Sunlight

Emotive Techno with that unmistakable Detroit stamp; from the motor city Godfather, Juan Atkins. This was released in 1993 on Peacefrog.

Public Image Ltd – This Is Not A Love Song

Some New Wave dance moves from Johnny and the boys off of their 1983 EP.

Módulo 1000 – Turpe Est Sine Crine Caput

Heavy Brazilian Psyche from Modulo 1000. This is off of their only album, 1970’s ‘Não Fale Com Paredes’. This track goes way beyond the better known Os Mutantes, who are also fellow Brazilians; and sounds like West Coast Psychedelia that is actually under the influence of psychedelics. Great track.

Jac Berrocal – Rock N Roll Station

A very special track dating from 1976; Rock N Roll Station saw French maverick Berrocal team up with Vince Taylor. Taylor was a Rock n Roll star from the 60s who had descended into madness, and was the main inspiration behind David Bowies Ziggy Stardust creation. The piece has Taylor reciting a kind of beat/concrete poetry over a subdued and haunting musical backing with Berrocal playing a bicycle, amongst other things. A true cult classic.

Warmduscher – Lady Eggs

How to describe this? Slapstick noise rock perhaps? Saul Adamczewski and co seem to be channeling some Butthole Surfers with their gonzoid Warmduscher project. This is from their 2015 album ‘Khaki Tears’.
