Late Night Junkbox Seepage

Mawnin' mawnin'!

Time is tight and the night is short, friends, and work scratches at the clock like a hungry yellow dog in the streets. So I cut quick to the chase, yeah?

Insidious Junkbox 20 - Trouble HeliXX

1. NWA - Straight Outta Compton
2. Beach Fossils - Daydream
3. Gorillaz - Stylo (Chiddy Bang mix)
4. Race Horses - Cake
5. Club 8 - Western Hospitality
6. Shellac (of North America) - Wingwalker
7. Quasi - Repulsion
8. Massive Attack - Babel
9. Nightmares on Wax - Aftermath
10. Phantogram - As Far As I Can See
11. Son Lux - Weapons V
12. TV On The Radio - Staring At The Sun

A flinty dozen indeeeed, although I myself was not on the sparklingest of forms and the levels were weird and mossy indeed. I went off for a bender in a paintball course of my own mind. I did, I did.

I also tried to cut down on the number of times I said "kindof". Perhaps that was why I didn't feel so talkative....

So many questions!

Ingenious Punkcast - Grizzled Guts Undo Stern Intentions

Greetings, wobbly overlords of the illimitable chaos!

Were I able to get out of bed, were I able to refuse drinks and get to bed at a reasonable hour, were I not the CocOen that I am - then I'd be finishing off another Insidious Junkbox - Number Twenty - the XX, if you will. Although I won't be playing any XX because that's only just occured to me and I lack the wit to insert it. The running time is already looking as hairy as a gymnast's comb-over.

So, while we all wait for me to pull the collective finger from out my arse, here are some details of another past Junkbox - a Hallowe'en special no less. And quite a good list it was, even properly themed a little, which is rare for me.

Junkbox The 13th - Jason's Revenge

1. Butthole Surfers - Hurdy Gurdy Man
2. Julian Casablancas - River of Brakelights
3. Cypress Hill - We Ain't Going Out Like That
4. Weird Era - Ghost
5. Neon Indian - Psychic Chasms
6. Spizzenergi - Where's Captain Kirk?
7. Sufjan Stevens - Movement VII (Finale) - The Emperor of Centrifuge
8. Roxanne Shante - Independent Woman
9. T33TH!!! - If I Ever
10. The Human League - Empire State Human
11. Kelpe - Microscopic Contents
12. Relics - What To Feel
13. Pink Floyd - Julia Dream
14. Pavement - Range Life

Anyway,now I've realised that I say "kindof" a very much lot of the time when I extemporise - so I'm not in any fit state to record now and I don't have the time because I've been lying here in this bed instead. Only able to reach over and pick up the handy laptop.

Dr Lw has a new laptop too, which I hope she will use to rage hard in a blogular way, spitting the acid rain of her battery mind onto the mongoose media and there limping obsession with all that's not right right. Let's sign a huge, rainbow-based petition to make her do it.

Touched by the Hand of Dewi - Another Junkbox Raises Its Wrinkled Fingers

Hey, hey!

I almost managed to include NO Welsh music in this episode of Insidious Junkbox, the nineteenth one at that. Other than that, it's a total daffodil-bursting vernal groundburst of musical delight.
