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.┬áThe 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…

What Is Best In Life #23: Prime Computer Ads

OK, so everyone knows who the best Doctor is, it’s David Te… no? The curly haired one from the Seventies? You mean Jon Per… oh, not him either? Everyone (except wrong’uns) loves them a bit of Tom Baker aka Four. You may well have seen these ads before if you’re remotely interested, I’d certainly seen…

Games with gold co-op bliss

Now I owned Kane & Lynch first time of asking on the 360 and it didnt impress me much, this was a time when I lived in a different town from my friends and the weekly get together consisted of beer, music and insert football/fighting game. There was no opportunity for couch co-op so my…

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

Sex & Drugs & Rock’n’Roll (2010)

Well, I probably should be writing up a deep and boff-tastic take on the final episode of our Lord and Master (ahem!) Doctor The Who. Don’t tempt me! Instead, I’m going to do a quick piece on the excellent film Sex & Drugs & Rock’n’Roll which was shown last night on BBC2. It’s been on…

Seventeen [The Droyds remix] – Ladytron [FanVid]

Characteristically squeezing a lot of metadata into that there title sorry, something you’ll recognise if you’re a victim/veteran of my mixtapes and accompanying annotations down the years. Should caution straight away that the above gorgeous-in-compostion-and-editing fan vid is wholly constructed from (read: spoils) Refn‘s The Neon Demon. Not actually seen that one yet myself, but…

Well I Never Knew That #4

Saw this fun fact mentioned in passing online and it startled me into double-checking. MC Hammer‘s “Pray“, a song I barely recall yet instantly recognised, is one I mentally group with that whole dire ITV Chart Show/Madchester/Janet Jackson/Luther Van-dross early-‘90s lacuna before popular music got good again. Yes, I just sideswiped Le Carpets Inspiral, deal…
