When it Rains it Rains Shit

April. I hate April. I’ve detailed my reasons why before, I’m not getting into those past pains again. I will tell you though that so far this month I’ve had five of my fish die, pulled my abdominal muscles and faced something so weird I’m not even getting into it here. The sad thing is that the month isn’t even halfway over yet.

I really gotta look into getting that April/Nuclear shelter built in my basement, stocking it with 12” singles, a TV and an Xbox and just sitting this whole month out next year.

Also, every nerd that reads this should go to my friend Anna’s blog. She’s cool and she knows more about computers and video games than you do.

Daft Punk
Da Funk (Armand Van Helden Remix)
I don’t find a lot of Daft Punk at Jerry’s that much. I think it’s like Dark Side Of the Moon, if you bought it you probably intend on keeping it. On the off chance that I score a Daft Punk single it’s usually worn to hell and back. I’m still morning the horrid condition of the “Better Faster Stronger” 12” I got a few months ago, thing barely played. However, this one played amazingly well and I get to share it’s amazing awesomeness with you amazingly awesome people.

Man on Mars (Extended Club Mix)
Man on Mars (DJ Tibby Remix)
Man on Mars (DJ Jan Remix)
Man on Mars (Talla 2XLC Remix)
There’s not enough space-themed electronic music, don’t you think? Doesn’t make sense. Someone needs to get on that, I think the astronauts deserve more than Hawkwind and Rush records. I think this is a pretty good trance track, even thought I’m not a huge fan of the genre outside of progressive trance like Hybrid – who are also kind of sci-fi themed. Maybe I just like spaceships in my dance music, who knows? Interesting/useless bit of trivia, there was also a rock band named Komakino, which proves that no matter how obscure the Joy Division reference you may come up with, someone else beat you to it. These are from a 12” single.

Pussy 2000
It’s Gonna Be Alright (Rockdapussy Mix)
It’s Gonna Be Alright (Hard Pussy Mix)
It’s Gonna Be Alright (DJ Sneak Vocal Edit)
It’s Gonna Be Alright (Original 2001 Mix)
Yes, it’s official, that is the worst name of a house DJ act I have ever seen. Pussy 2000? What the hell were they thinking? Not only is it disgusting, it instantly dates them! It’s gross and impractical! What a horrible combination! It’s a shame too, because this track, which samples The Clash’s “Rock The Casbah” is actually kind of good. I’d also like to state that I picked up this 12” because the credits had Joe Strummer on it, and not because the name of the group. Seriously. I’m serious.

Stop judging me.

    Thanks as always for the quality tunes! I think it’d be a good idea for you to stay away from your grunge albums during April from now on, I just don’t think it’s healthy…

    Thanks again – Lost Turntable is required reading!

    Cheers from southeastern CT,

    I can hear a bit of In Flagranti – Abash Crock in the sneak version of Pussy 2000.

    Also I think Pussy 3000 has a better ring to it..
