B. “What the fuck was that all about?”
C. “Did you fucking see that?!
D. “I’m fucked, man.”
E. “Fuckin hell!”
F(uck).
G. “Fuuuuuuuuuuuck!”

Obviously i use other swear words but apparently “fuck” and it’s various usages are my favourite. So here’s a fucking Monday List with a twist. Well make that two Monday Lists for the price of one. I had so much fucking fun making up a List with “fuck” in the song title that i thought i’d make another one up with swear words/insults in the bands name.

Live @ Eclecticity 2010 Parts 1 and 2

So tonight i can finally get round to uploading my set from Eclecticity last month. I blame Chris for taking so long! Although to be fair he has done a really good job of converting the set and keeping the audio quality at a good level (it’s around 260 kbps). Before anyone gets the wrong idea and thinks this is actually the live gig audio, it’s not. It hasn’t been a miked up recording and caught audience noise, buzzing bass and crackly beats and all the other crap that comes along with it. No, what he done was simply record my set through Traktor while i was playing . So it’s a perfect, clear and audible version. Anyone who uses Traktor will know that it only deals in wav files when it comes to the recording function so these files have been converted to MP3 and Chris has very kindly chopped what was a 4 hour set into 1 hour or so sections. This will allow me to burn them onto discs and also make downloads easier.


Tracklisting (Part 1)

1. Queens of the Stone Age – Someone’s In The Wolf
2. Japanese Popstars featuring John Spencer – Destroy
3. HTRK – Disco

THE MONDAY LIST #16: My Own Summer

I’m sure most of you are aware that today is the summer solstice. The day when the sun stands still. The longest day of the year when the summer is at its brightest.

Todays solstice has certainly lived up to it’s billing so far, it’s been yet another fantastic day weather wise. So to celebrate the summer getting into full swing and the beginning of the long, long summer nights, barbecues and parties here is a list of summer based tracks i had lying around on the laptop. They vary from summer holidays through to summer romance and more.

SUMMER SOLSTICE
————————-
1. Wavves – Summer Goth
2. Girl Talk – Summer Smoke
3. Refused – Summerholiday Vs. Punkroutine
4. Raindear – Childhood Memories Of Summer
5. Incubus – Summer Romance (Anti-Gravitiy Love Song)
6. Avi Buffalo – Summer Cum
7. Crocodiles – Summer Of Hate
8. The Manhattan Love Suicides – Indian Summer
9. Singapore Sling – Summer Garden
10. Taking Back Sunday – You’re So Last Summer

Bonus track:
MP3: The Unwinding Hours – Solstice

Summer also means festivals. Sadly though this year will be the first year since 200o that i have missed T in the Park. In previous years i’ve also managed to take in summer festivals in Germany and Austria. Both were unforgettable experiences. In fact the only musical festivities i’ll be taking in this year is that of the West End Festival  in Glasgow.

I suppose it’ll be a nice change and for once i won’t have to wake up boiling hot and hungover in a tiny polyester tent……….who am i kidding? I’m gonna miss it big time. Festivals made my summer to an extent but the new house takes priority this year and if i’m lucky i may be able to fit in a big festival of some sort at the end of the summer or maybe even September. There’s always ATP as well at the end of the year.

MP3: Deftones – My Own Summer

Summer also brings that old tingling warm sensation, literally. It’s called sunburn and a few of my friends have already been “lobsterified” this summer. So has this dude below, why is he still smiling!? Feel the burn!

OUCH!

MP3: Muse – Sunburn

Summer Can Do Strange Things To A Man

Ps. Today is also my big sister Lisa’s birthday. 29 today! I’ve tx and phoned her so i might as well go for the treble and wish her a good one on here as well, Happy Birthday Lis! xxxx

She’s away on holiday at the moment so i gave her the prezzies a few days back. Among them was Iggy and The Stooges “Raw Power” Special Edition. A fine choice if you ask me.

Too Much Time To Waste (Part 2)

So this is the second part of my update. Basically it takes in Aberdeen and then The Unwinding Hours gig.

I don’t have much time tonight so a summary of the Aberdeen trip is as follows:-

Being stoned in a busy car park
Dead seagulls
A lot of walking
Morrisons sandwiches
Listening to Limp Bizkit on the journey up to Aberdeen (just for nostalgia)
Shitty North Sound Radio on the way back down
Ghost stories
Morgans Spiced Rum
Getting ID’d for cigarettes (“Do i look under 18? Do those glasses work?”)
Getting a new high score on Fall Down on my iPod
Being stoned and slightly paranoid in Subway
Coffee
Getting stuck in rush hour traffic
“Yah’s”
Talking with Kurt Cobains spirit in a high street store
Lipstick marks on pint glasses….yuck
Tiny bathrooms
Early morning phone calls
Running backwards
Discussions on bizarre ways to die
Horrible take away food
Losing a hat
Losing money on quiz machines
A cravat
Getting lost in nightclub toilets
Being eyeballed by a strange, drunk man
Custom handshakes
Talking to a kind policewoman
Being stoned in a supermarket (bad idea)
Attempting to decipher the Aberdeen accent
Lots of bottles of water
Almost spending £1oo on a new iPod dock
Almost losing my tickets for The Unwinding Hours gig
Going home

So here’s a few songs to sum up the trip….

MP3: My Bloody Valentine – Drive It All Over Me

MP3: Iggy Pop – The Passenger

MP3: Yo La Tengo – Little Honda

And a few to sum up the ghost stories from the Thursday night…

MP3: Maps and Atlases – Songs for Ghosts to Haunt To

MP3: The Haunted – Shithead

Oh and one tune to sum up the story i told about a certain loony on a bus and his creepy crawlie fetish…….only some of you will know that story.

MP3: System of a Down – Spiders

So in short story form:- Aberdeen – Welcome To The North

Myself, Luisa and Keane took a road trip up to Aberdeen to see our friend Emma. Keanes girlfriend Lisa also happens to stay in Aberdeen so she kindly allowed us to stay at her place and joined us on our adventures. The original plan was to go see Emma and take in the Ex Lovers gig at The Warehouse. Unfortunately i believe said gig was cancelled but we decided to go ahead with the trip anyway. We left on the Wednesday morning, got there about 5pm on the Wednesday afternoon. That night we spent a few hours in various pubs and then onto a club. On the Thursday, those of us who braved the hangover (not you Emma!) went for lunch/dinner and then took a wander around a few shops before heading to the bus station to see off Luisa. She had to head back down on the Thursday night to make her work on the Friday. I spent the Thursday night with Emma and Gemma. It was a rather enjoyable few hours of storytelling and discussions and then it was back to the flat and tucked up in bed (the floor and a sleeping bag) for midnight. We left for home about 3pm on the Friday but not after i’d had one last stroll about Aberdeen city centre. Keane dropped me off in Glasgow about 7pm on the Friday night and it was straight to The Unwinding Hours gig at Stereo for me………

5th March, The Unwinding Hours @ Stereo

This was a gig and night that didn’t exactly go to plan. But it turned out amazing in the end. The plan was: I come back from Aberdeen, meet my brother in law Gary in Glasgow, we grab a few beers then head to The Unwinding Hours gig. Everything was going well until we got just outside the venue. I’d met Gary on time, we’d grabbed a few beers. Then i made the mistake of offering him a smoke. He hadn’t smoked in ages. Months and months. He felt really sick, really quickly and after taking my advice he decided to head off on the train home. I was on my lonesome.

Strangely though i didn’t feel awkward at all. The music kept me company. The Unwinding Hours have that knack of making comforting sounds. The epic and constant ethereal feel of the songs is more than enough company for any mere human. They recorded their debut album as a duo but live they are aptly assisted by a few more musicians. They will eventually play the album in it’s entirety over the course of the night.

The lighting makes for a warm mood. The lyrics add a somewhat sombre feel. They almost threaten to bring the place to a hush with whispery vocals in some parts before letting the songs soar again. Craig B’s lungs soar along with the music and i can feel a shiver in my spine. I take a look around and i can practically see the hairs on everyone’s necks standing up. We’re all sharing in this dream like sequence of songs together. It’s cold outside and the rain is lashing, the wind is howling but in here, downstairs in this little venue the sounds of perfection are keeping us warm and happy. And then it’s wake up time, the gig’s over but not before some more witty banter from the shy but charming frontman.

After the gig i end up chatting to a friend of one of the support bands “Olympic Swimmers”. We discuss various bands, mainly Aereogramme (if you don’t know why, you shouldn’t be reading this post.) But we end up on the subject of “slacker” music and shoegaze. Dinosaur Jr and the likes. I think it’s because i brought up a band called “A Grave With No Name” into the conversation. Get them checked out, seriously amazing band. A mixture of pianos and guitars with the wooziness of a softer My Bloody Valentine tinged with the vacant yet emotion full lyrical feel of Dinosaur Jr. And they can do sludgey shoegaze at it’s best too, just check out the song “Silver” for proof. Anyways back to the conversation, the subject of the “slacker” genre almost ultimately leads to Pavement. Alongside Dino Jr, Pavement could be credited with being pioneers of that movement. Of course there are so many others but those two stick out. So when Pavement came up i jumped straight in, “Oh my friend Emma absolutely loves Pavement….” before going on a ten minute spiel about Emma and her Pavement adoration. During this ten minute period, another few people join in, one being a member of said band “Olympic Swimmers”. He happens to mention his band have contributed to a Pavement tribute album called “Show Me A Word That Rhymes With Pavement”. It’s a free download. Find it here…http://www.filthylittleangels.com/

I know the website sounds like some sort of porn site, i was sceptical when the dude first told me. But it is genuine!

Seriously though it’s an album worth getting, especially if you’re big on Pavement. I downloaded it as soon as i got home from the gig on the Friday night and sent it straight to Emma.

Also, it’s worth mentioning that the other support act for The Unwinding Hours, a band called “Holy Mountain” were very very good. And very loud. They reminded me of a two man Kyuss. You can find a free download of an EP on there MySpace page.   http://www.myspace.com/mountainholy

So that was 3 very good Scottish bands in one night. Not bad for a night that looked set to be a downer.

MP3: The Unwinding Hours – There Are Worse Things Than Being Alone

MP3: Olympic Swimmers – We Dance (Pavement cover)

MP3: Holy Mountain – Kegs

And the band i was supposed to see while in Aberdeen…

MP3: Ex Lovers – You Forget So Easily

Oh and in other news, i’ve added to my PA System 🙂

MP3: Refused – New Noise

So that’s the update finished. And as a parting shot here’s some of ” A Grave With No Name”, just in case you couldn’t be bothered looking them up! I highly recommend the album “Mountain Debris”. The songs “Lavender” and “Silver” are my favourites but couldn’t find a video for either of them. I’ll post the actual tracks when i have time.

THE MONDAY LIST #9: I Change Shapes Just To Hide In This Place…

Tonights list is dedicated to songs that come in all shapes and sizes, literally. The criteria for the list required having a shape (or reference to shapes) in the song title or the artists name. Some songs are quite long, the New Order track clocks in at just under 7 minutes and there are a few short ones, namely the track by The Octagon and the song “Tommib” by Squarepusher which is barely over a minute long. The avid film fans among you may recognise that particular Squarepusher track from the film Lost In Translation. The particular scene that it’s from is a perfect example of music and cinema coming together to create a beautiful moment.

1. Testicicles – Circle Square Triangle
2. Idlewild – When I Argue I See Shapes
3. Squarepusher – Tommib

6. The Models – Bend Me, Shape Me
7. The Octagon – Suicide Kings
