I Said You Were A Drunken A-Hole…Not Lazy

I try not to talk about my personal life that much here – I’d rather focus on the music. But if you’re ever wondering about the woes of my life, you can usually get a hint from the violently-enigmatic subject titles from the past month or so. The long and the short of it is that everyone at my college makes me so mad I could punch a mentally-handicapped chimp in the face.

Now, in stark contrast to that sickening statement, enjoy some pop music.


I Wish U Heaven (Part 1, 2 & 3)
Scarlet Pussy
I love this single for multiple reasons. First of all the running time of “I Wish U Heaven” is listed as ’10:something’, gotta love that attention to detail. Secondly, the b-side “Scarlet Pussy’ is credited to Camille, with no other credits given. As Prince fans may know, Camille was an alter-ego devised by The Purple One in which he put his voice through some effects so he sounded like a chick. He recorded a whole album as Camille but like many, many…many other Prince projects it was shelved and will probably never be released.

The Avalanches
Frontier Psychiatrist (Mario Caldato’s 85% Mix)
Frontier Psychiatrist (85% Instrumental)
If I didn’t post this remix soon a very tall chick was going to come to my house and kill me. The Avalanches’ Since You Been Gone is one of the all-time best examples of turntablism and this is the best track from that album. By extension this is the greatest turntable track ever made. Well, this isn’t, this is a remix of said G.O.A.T. turntablist tune. It’s still good though.

Amnesia (Zion Train 359 Amhurst Road Mix)
Amnesia (Decontrol Mix)
Tubthumping (Escape From New York’s Full English Breakfast Mix)
While most people know Chumbawamba for the one hit, they should be known as one of the most hardcore left-wing anarchist rock bands in the history of music. They protested against Live-Aid (via the awesomely-named LP Pictures Of Starving Children Sell Records) and encouraged their fans to steal their records from Wal-Mart. These remixes don’t really paint an accurate picture of Cumbawamba’s awesomeness, so I’ve also included a bare-bones live version of their track “Homophobia” which I think is much more indicative of their beliefs. It’s also radically different from the upbeat dance version that they originally recorded (and far superior).

    I feel that way most of the time.
    I even might included retarded small children, but only in the realm of hypothetically irrational fury.

    Your selections make me raise my hands in joy.

    Chumbawamba have indeed always stuck to their delightfully demented beliefs (that’s not a value statement, that’s just using the word “demented” to mean absurdistly awesome)…And that Avalanches song…The first time I saw it, I was pissing my self practically for about 10 minutes after it had ended.
    And the video only cemented that reaction.
    Interestingly, one of the main members of the Avalanches is married to the singer known as “New Buffalo”, who also sets me a-twinkle, though not necessarily in the pissed-laughing variety. now that‘d be demented.
