SPK-Metal Dance

You know, I always go on and on about Severed Heads being one of my favourite Australian 'bands', and it's really quite rude of me not to mention fellow Sydney (industrial noise) group SPK in the same breath, because Metal Dance is one of my favourite 12''s that I own, and I'm just a bit upset at myself that I haven't mentioned this yet. Very rude.


One of my favourite releases this year has been Vatican Shadow's Kneel Before religious Icons. Vatican Shadow is Prurient's Dominick Fernow.
Interestingly, Prurient's'Bermuda Drains was one of my favourite records of last year. The man creates a mood. It's motif music. He really puts you in there. It's filmic. The Vatican Shadow stuff is like war on repeat, because the truth is, war is always on repeat. This is political music. Big respect.

Absolute hero of mine. Pianist/composer/Electronic music innovator. Suzanne made records (now days, she's a very big New Age music composer), designed sound for pinball machines, movies and commercials. Imagine this in the 1970's.

Watch Suzanne at work designing sounds for the Xenon pinball machine!

One of my favourite pieces of hers:

Jennifer Paige- Crush

Something you may not have known about me is that this is definitely one of my favourite pop songs of the 90's. Jennifer Paige pretty much came and went with this song, like she sacrificed her career for it or something. It's so good. And she's so gorgeous. And she has another song called 'Sober', but I think she's talking about love in that song (It's over/and I'm sober). I thought that was double cool. 'Crush' is amazing. In the video, when Jennifer is swinging on a swing on top of a cliff, I want to catch her, mid motion, and tell her to be careful!

LHASA- The Attic

Feeling this a lot at the moment.
Belgium techno 1990


Rah Digga's DIRTY HARRIET came out on the cusp of the beginning/end of a centruy. '99.
I thought that was gonna be the end for rappers. This girl was going to take over the world, being linked to Busta Rhymes and all. I thought she was going to be the Y2K myth of the world getting fucked up, personified! But it didn't happen. It confused the hell out of me.
Rah was the queen of rap back then, in my eye.
I knew, and still know, every word on that record.
I just heard her do some what of a diss back to Fat trel and Tyler the Creator for using her name in their tracks as metaphors for something not very nice.
Rah's verse is murderous. Clever.

(copy and paste this. via the fader)

If you don't have Dirty Harriet, get schooled. Get it.
Peace and Love and respect to Rah Digga. Big influence on me as a rapper.
