SPOZ - THE MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK.. volume 5
yup, here's yet another installment in new tunes the spoz is buzzing on.. you wont find no "catch my disease" here.. no missy higgins.. no akon "me so lonely me so horny me no getty no loving longtime" or 50cent crap.. none of this bling bling booty booty bang bang with the boom boom in my room shite.. none of that pseudo christian no-sex-before-marriage whitebread disney cutesy pop with the ear piercing whining and the multioctaves which leads to a drug addled bloated corpse trainwreck by the age of 25.. no freaking singing and dancing cartoon crocodiles and retarded ringtone amphibians.. no hang meself smashoff and cry emo loaded nappy bollocks.. just the funky shit.. or at least shit i think is the funky shit.. amd maybe you'll just think it's shit.. and it's like funky.. or maybe you'll be wondering why i've written this entire paragraph without using a single capital letter.. yeah.. weird huh? anyhoo.. check these songs out.. the funky shit spoz recommends.. yeah!
SOULWAX - NY EXCUSE
also known as them kwazy kats TOO MANY DJS's, famous for them wacky mashup DJ's mixes (y'know, where you splice in something fucked up like a Britney Spears or a Destiny's Child song with an Iggy Pop song.. and all of a sudden it's cool? except it really really shouldn't? yeah.. doesn't that just fuck ya head over?) anyhoo.. they've also apparently released albums as a band of sorts.. and this song is off their second album, ANY MINUTE NOW.. go get it.. it's really really cool.. so, why this song in particular? could it be the nutty stabbing insane little trigger happy electro spastic sounds? the cheesingly addictive grrrl pink nutty vocals? how it sounds like it's electroclash.. except it doesn't make you wanna smash yer head against the wall.. like so many chicks on speed, peaches or ladytron songs? is it because of just how relentlessly it drives its happy nutty druggy stabby stabby funk home and makes you wanna overdose on wacky mixed spirits with redbull till you trash the whole joint? hmmmm.. perhaps for all those reasons.. yup, this's song sounds so damn fluffy but with big pointy teeth.. yeaaah! rock!
THE STROKES - JUICE BOX
maaaaaaan.. wot ever happened to The Strokes? rememeber waaay back in the crazy days of 2001, when these guys were the be all and end all.. and every dickhead and their dog were clambouring over each other like rats to come up with a copycat act with the word "THE" in it..? remember how freaking cool that 1st album was.. IS THIS IT? do ya remember thrashing it over and over.. thinking.. "wow, that lead singer sounds like he's singing down the phone from a janitors closet with a bad case of concussion.. but DAMN IT ROCKS!".. yeah.. they were the shit weren't they? the first in a long line of bands to be hyped to death by NME magazine.. till the LIBERTINES fucked it up for everyone.. seriously.. who reads NME anymore? yeah.. ok.. at least they were right about BLOC PARTY and KAISER CHIEFS.. but seriously.. I DONT FUCKING CARE ABOUT PETE DOHERTY.. I DONT CARE IF HE'S ESCAPED REHAB AGAIN.. THE LIBERTINES SUCKED.. OK!! LIVE WITH IT YOU SPINELESS ARSEBANDIT FANBOY FUCKS!! HA!.. now where wuz I? oh.. yeah.. The Strokes.. they had a kickarse 1st album.. and then.. well.. fuck.. they HAD to bomb on the 2nd didn't they? I dunno how it was possible.. use exactly the same formula as the 1st album.. but add all these dickhead little spastic drum machine style percussion and make even dumber songs about wot'ever the fuck that put you to sleep by the 3rd track in.. yeah, at least REPTILIA wuz kinda fucken cool.. maybe it was Drew Barrymore's fault (she sucked the comedy out've Adam Sandler who knew wot she was capable of..).. but, wow.. check this song out.. JUICE BOX.. it really rocks.. it sounds removed enough from the cliche of their sound not to annoy the piss out've ya.. and yet, also reminds you why you dug this shit in the first place.. all hammering chunky chunky guitar and manic screaming like a 50's tornado.. all stoner ramblings breaking out into out've control insane screaming.. yeaah.. this shit rocks.. WELCOME BACK DUDES.. it's been too long!
PRODIGY - RAZOR
in theory this song just seems like a really bad idea - Keith Flint, resident village idiot from the Prodigy had this wacky punk band side project called FLINT.. a side project that never really played any gigs (you could correct me on this) wrote one stinky little album that NEVER GOT RELEASED (you can download it off the net if you look hard enough tho) and pretty much broke up after 2 years of doing shit fuck all.. so, Liam Howlett in his infinite wisdom, decides to nick one of their shelved songs.. gives it a bit of a once over with some wacky electronica spit and polish.. to use as the Prodigy's comeback single - BABY'S GOT A TEMPER.. and wow, didn't that song go down like a big flaming turd? "we love rohypnol! we love rohypnol! just forget it all!" yeah.. funny how it never appeared on their album.. funny how any mention of the song to LIam Howlett makes him cringe.. and yet, here we are again.. another song.. adapted from Keith Flint's failed side project.. (funnily enough, the SAME damn track as the one he nicked BABY's GOT A TEMPER from) and yet.. who'dafunkit..? this song (found on their just released "THEIR LAW" best of album) really really works.. sure it's dumb.. sure it's got Keith yelling some dumb punk fuckoff shit all over it.. sure it's nowhere near as cool as FIRESTARTER (yeah, he really shot himself in the foot with that one).. but FUCK this song rocks.. you may not get it listening the first time over.. but.. it really grows on ya like a virus.. it's so damn catchy I might just hafta play it again to silence the screaming voices in me head.. YAY! the PRODIGY ARE BACK! and this time they DONT SUCK!! :)
