Here are all of FunkyJ's jams.
by Mr Scruff
So, this will be my final jam. Nietzsche said "Without music, life is an error". Mr Scruff and Alice Russell ask you to imagine life without music in this song. I think I would die if music was denied to me in it's totality. Like the song says "the music takes me up". This Is My Jam is going away, but the music will stay for all to still listen to. I'd like to thank all the people at @thisismyjam for putting this cool little tech together, and allowing us to share such a cool, creative outlet together. I'd also like to say a big fuck you to the music industry for making something that defines our very humanity - that is the ability to share music with other people - difficult and dangerous unless we play by their frankly stupid and archaic rules.

by Incredible Bongo Band
The Incredible Bongo Band is incredible for the amount of people who have sampled them. This magnificent piece of dirty funk was sampled by Bently's Rhythm Ace who were once part of PWEI.

Haha whoops! TIMJ is sticking around for another 4 weeks... This week I've chosen Music Takes Me Up by Mr Scruff with the amazing Alice Russell on vocals. Imagine life without music indeed!!

by The Wombats
The Wombats really impressed me at Splendour. Their miserable lyrics clash with their melodic pop beautifully, and live they certainly are a lot of fun.

by The Smiths
Ah Morrissey you miserable prick, you sure can write a good lyric! "I was looking for a job and then I found a job and heaven knows I'm miserable now..."

by The Charlatans
A great song by an underrated and overshadowed band.

by Future Islands
To appreciate Future Islands I really think you need to see them live. On record they're a good but nothing spectacular, but seeing Samuel Herring's antics live is very entertaining.
Jammed: 16th Feb 2015
I prefer the original, but YouTube restrictions prevent me linking it to TIMJ. Definitely over all these ridiculous restrictions Australian & NZ music labels put on youtube videos. It's like they don't want anyone to hear the music the artists make.

by The Bamboos
This was going to be a Clint Mansell track, as he was meant to play last Friday, but had to cancel unfortunately. So instead I'll post the band I saw live on Saturday - the Bamboos and Tim Rogers.
Jammed: 20th Oct 2014
by Jeff Mills & Montpelier Philharmonic Orchestra
I saw Jeff Mills with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and they were amazing! This recording manages to come close to the live vibe, but it was something really special hearing it in person.
Jammed: 13th Oct 2014
I worried when rumours started earlier this year about Malcolm Young's bad health, and sad to hear he retired, but glad the rest of AC/DC will tour at least one more time...
Jammed: 29th Sep 2014
by The Dandy Warhols
I also saw Dandy Warhols a little while ago. Zia's amp played up, so instead of throwing a hissy fit like so many other bands, they remained professional and happy, and did an acoustic version of this... AMAZING!

by Pop Will Eat Itself
I was shocked and awed that @pweicrabbi's new PWEI would do this incredibly obscure track, and literally lost my cap moshing to it. (it's ok, I found my Ich Bin Ein Auslander cap afterwards!)
Jammed: 9th Sep 2014
Wait! There's more…
