Day 260 – Let’s Eat Grandma – Deep Six Textbook
New music find – English pop duo with hints of Bjork ans Cocteau Twins.
We live our lives in the textbook, and letter by letter
I feel like standing on the desk, and screaming “I don’t care”
Oh, and I was such a quiet child, oh I, was I?
Day 259 – Nirvana – Plateau (Unplugged)
Remembering the genius of Kurt Cobain.
There’s nothing on the top but a bucket and a mop
And an illustrated book about birds
You see a lot up there but don’t be scared
Who needs action when you got words

Day 258 – ABBA – S.O.S.
I’s been an ABBA sort of day…
Where are those happy days, they seem so hard to find
I tried to reach for you, but you have closed your mind
Whatever happened to our love?
I wish I understood
It used to be so nice, it used to be so good
Day 257 – Shed Seven – Disco Down
Hopefully going to see this great britop-era band at the end of the year. I can’t help think that they’re a bit underrated, over the years, as a band.
Feels like I’ve been
To every single disco all around
Another night, another town
It’s time to burn this disco down
This seems to be doing it’s rounds on Facebook, said I’d take part.

Day 256 – Ween – Even if you Don’t
This was my first experience of Ween when it appeared on MTv one afternoon in the early noughties. Cool video too.
I’m goin’ crazy trying to keep you sane
Takin’ my prescriptions, forging my name
I was happy this morning, ya finally got yourself dressed, eatin all the bacon
Its okay i was still impressed
Day 255 – Hans Zimmer – The Village (from The Thin Red Line)
Composer Hans Zimmer makes this film even more epic with his marvelous blend of beautiful and horrific themes throughout.
Day 254 – Patti Smith – Elegie
Celebrating National Poetry Day with one of legendary poetess, Patti Smith.
I just don’t know what to do tonight,
My head is aching as I drink and breathe
Memory falls like cream in my bones, moving on my own.
There must be something I can dream tonight,
The air is filled with the moves of you,
All the fire is frozen yet still I have the will, ooh, ah.
Trumpets, violins, I hear them in the distance
And my skin emits a ray, but I think it’s sad, it’s much too bad
That our friends can’t be with us today.
Day 253 – Chastity Belt – Different Now
Love this new song by Chastity Belt. The video has clear references to Pearl Jam and Temple of the Dog.
Day 252 – Silver Sun – Golden Skin
Recently bough Silver Sun’s debut album. They cam out during the ‘Britpop’ era in the nineties, but weren’t really among the scene as such.
On an advert or the late show
That’s where she goes
She’s got a chat show and she gets old
And she wants to look gold
Every magazine and paper
There’s an interview with her
And she’s got golden skin
