Five for Tuesday



My brain is turning to mush. This picture above has very little to do with anything, other than I put 'Tuesday' into Google Image and this was one that it came up with...

I was trying to think of a theme for a post today, but then I thought: Sod it, let's give 'em five tracks. If you like them, do leave some feedback, my bandwith is certainly disappearing at a fast rate of knots, but it would be nice to have some comments on here.

These first two tracks are from bands I know nothing about (info gratefully received etc..) but I think they're excellent:

Dykehouse -'Chainsmoking.' mp3

The Fitness -'Chauffeur.' mp3

I'm no expert on house music, but even I know this is regarded as being pretty seminal. And covered by the X-Vectors as well...

Frankie Knuckles -'Your Love.' mp3

This track features the vocals of my all-time hero Robert Smith:

Paul Hartnoll -'Please (featuring Robert Smith).' mp3

And finally, a song still sounding astonishing nearly thirty years later:

The Pop Group -'She Is Beyond Good And Evil.' mp3

As always, if you like what you hear, go and seek the artists out, at your local independent record shop!

The Fitness!

a local seattle dance-punk thing type band. It warms the cockles of my heart to hear them.

My barber was the hair-dresser for the lead singer and kept playing their single Cheuffer until I had to see them live somewhere in Seattle.

Very cool to hear local music being played in the UK.

Yes, I have not posted in a long while, but I do love that song!
