OK, I know!!! I'm pretty sure you've all had just about enough of Gnarls Barkleys Crazy for one lifetime. If I'm totally honest, I don't blame you. That said, I happened across a version that is certainly worth adding to your Crazy collection.
This is a somewhat odd coupling of Crazy and Kelly Osbourne's One Word, a song which I confess to be somewhat oblivious to. It comes courtesy of Frenchman ElectroSound, who aptly describes his art as 'music recycling'. It's a damn good pairing if I'm frank. It even comes complete with stirring Martin Luther King speech. I will say however, I don't believe for one second that Kelly's voice is that impeccable. I could post Changes to re-jig your memory on the matter...that would be just mean.
To change the subject, remember the E.L.F. track I posted? Well, the man behind the project, Darren Cross, contacted me to say that he'd put together a video to accompany the song. I watched it while recovering from a hangover. It cheered me up no end. Thanks Darren.

I was anticipating this one after reading Van She Tech's (the remix wing of Van She) Myspace page were they announced they'd dropping it soon. Well here it is. Feist's 1234 given the Van She re-work. I really didn't know what the hell to expect . Their remixes range from Electro to Euro Trance. This one, I guess, sits somewhere in the middle. Happy, without being euphoric. Electronic, without casting too great a shadow over Leslie Feists flawless voice. I must admit however, as far as Feist remixes are concerned, the Boys Noize remix of My Man, My Moon still sets the benchmark.

- "I hate
with a passion. A festival for the great unwashed and unemployed dole dossers, how they afford the tickets is beyond me." Glastonbury
"I have never been to the
rock festival and I never will go. I do not want to be in a field full of assholes who work for the BBC and The Guardian and the British government, temporarily decked out in casual gear while pretending to be counterculture fellow travelers for the weekend, listening to Radiohead, Coldplay, The Who, Dirty Pretty Things, and suchlike vermin. Nuke Glastonbury , its New Labour promoter, and his nasty, phony, rich bitch daughter." Glastonbury
"I hate Glastonbury, It's shit and full of people who like music one week per year."

John Hyde: This guy, I notice, has been picking up some momentum of late, featured on both Chazology and Palms Out Sounds, two well respected blogs. I find it quite funny. The guy lives and plays in Liverpool, yet I'd never heard of him until some blogger half way around the world gets wind of him. Crazy. Although he has some fairly decent tracks of his own, it's his remixes that are most poignant. Hyde is not afraid to take on Metric and Beastie Boy records and converting them into dirty, electro funk gems. Check out his Myspace
The Wombats: I've been lucky enough to see these guys on two occasions now. Having just looked at their Myspace, I see that they've finally got signed to 14Th Floor Records. The Wombats stay away from the traditional jangly guitar sound associated with so many Liverpool bands, instead opting for an indie-pop sound infused with tuneful harmonies and ear pleasing melodies. Soon to be heard on prime time Radio 1 no doubt.
Alphabeater: All I remember about Alphabeater is accidentally seeing them at the Barfly and being totally blown away by the sheer energy of their sound (even if they did look like a bunch of arrogant tw@ts). Admittedly, the recordings don't have the same oomph, but they at least give some idea of what to expect. As yet unsigned, but certainly worth your listening time. Visit Alphabeaters Myspace, I believe their in need of a new drummer.

In a world which is increasingly becoming disinterested in traditional print media, the British music press finds itself vying for attention as its conventional readership flocks to alternative news mediums. One way it draws awareness to itself is to create a whole new music genre. Its latest creation is of course, New Rave.

I think I can claim this to be something of an 'exclusive', at least in terms of UK blogging. While away, up in the in the North East of England, I got sent an Mp3 from Australian group, The E.L.F. I use the term group in the loosest sense, since it's the lone project of Sydney based Darren 'Daz' Cross, who so happens to be the guitarist/vocalist from Gerling.

Although I find the track a little sparse sometimes, I must say that after the initial shock, I am coming round to the idea. If anyone was going to pull this one off then it was never going to be anyone other than Mr West.

This is a post that's been due a good while now. Kinda inevitable. Y'see I was lucky enough to find Van She about a year ago. Another one of those pleasant accidents that you stumble across sometimes. I've been pretty captivated ever since. I am however, aware that some quarters are still in the dark. THAT JUST ISN'T RIGHT!!!!
Rather than bore you with incessant facts, I'd rather outline some salient points, and let your ears do the work for me.
- Foursome, from Sidney, Australia
- Formed back in 2005
- Signed to 'Modular'
- Have one EP out Van She
- Van She Tech is the genius remixing arm of the band
- I think I may do all my posts in bullet point form!?

I've not had much sleep, yet here I am, writing away. That's dedication!!!
At the end of Justice's set, we were unexpectedly treated to Rage Against The Machine's 'Killing In The Name Of.' Did that bring back memories of teenage angst or what!

My one and only claim to fame: spending new years 2003 in Ghent, Belgium with my Brother at the home of Vive La Fete. It was the first time I'd tried oysters....among other things. Those crazy Belgies!!!
