Egoista – Mala Rodriguez

Sat on this one for a while so it’s actually about three jams back, partly because I originally wanted to fold it into a post about the Eternal nee Infinite Jukebox (don’t ask!) and partly because even though we chuck up posts about whatever we like here at VGR I didn’t want to oversaturate on…

Change/Remix

A great remix respects the source material but subtly enhances it. I got Frankie Knuckles’ House Masters compilation album for christmas and have been listening sporadically ever since. Included was his remix of Lisa Stansfield’s “Change” – a pop hit that should be familiar to most people who are 30 plus. Apart from being extended,…

Come On Moby!

You people think you know Das Mobonaut? You don’t know Jack Johnny. Whimsical belligerence aside I hope you’ll forgive me for being proper inspired to rustle up a quick chronologically-correct post rather than a mere comment pursuant to acidbearboy‘s excellent pair of preceding Moby posts. It was the mid-’90s, I was aware of Le Moby…

Early Moby part 2

The title track from Moby’s 1993 Move EP is a commercial dance-pop song with uplifting piano melodies and female vocals declaring “you make me feel, so good, so good”. It’s ok, but the least interesting track on this 6 track US CD single. The MV version of All I Need Is To Be Loved is…

Early Moby

Earlier this year, I bought and listened to a lot of early Moby – from his first releases in 1989 up to and including 1995’s Everything Is Wrong.Β The first Moby track I can ever remember hearing was Go (Woodtick Mix) from 1991. It seemed fairly ubiquitous judging by the many compilation albums I have from…

Mortal Kombat OST (1995)

Dunno how you feel about 1995‘s chop-socky game tie-in Flim Mortal Kombat, dear reader? For me, it’s an equally-naff, less-compelling parallel to Our Man JCVD and Kylie in the Street Fighter film. Its music was a subject of conversation in VGR-adjacent circles a while back, which is what probably prompted acidbearboy to re-check out the…

Classic YouTube Comments #2

I’ve been half-clicking with this explore’em’up game off and on for a couple of months, yet still not done a 5MA on it. The unskippable intro/cutscene section features Dracula himself delivering the wonderful cod-Shakespearean rhetorical question and answer “What is a man? A miserable little pile of secrets.” Great stuff, if unskippable, grr! The above…

The Book Of Revela-tunes

I went to Canterbury earlier this year with me dear old Mum, which included a visit to the city’s marvellous cathedral which unfortunately was full of workmen and scaffolding at the time. On top of the irregular proto-industrial metal-on-metal clanging, we’d apparently also chosen to visit during the time when the organ was being tuned…

Soundgarden – 4th Of July

  Never one to avoid the obvious me. This is one of my favourite songs from Superunknown not least for that down-tuned Godflesh-y guitar. Sorry you’re not here to see it Mr Cornell. and I still remember your sweet everything
