No Fool Boletus

No Fool Boletus

by Anaxaton6

Barry Andrews can still knock out a good tune. Sounding as good as anything Shriekback did in their productive Y records era. I've been listening to this a lot recently.

Third Floor Rooftop High

Third Floor Rooftop High

by The Woodentops

Well well well. This is a nice surprise. Unbeknownst to me Rolo McGinty has got the Woodentops back together and recorded new material. Great to hear his voice again after all this time. I saw the Woodentops play live three times in Sheffield in the mid '80s and danced myself silly every time.

Kedvesem (Live Orchestra)

Kedvesem (Live Orchestra)

by ByeAlex

Yes, I know the song was my jam for the last week, but this just turned up on the ByeAlex Facebook page. A sublime version of a stunning song. Managed to track down the album "Szörpoholista" this week and I am just stunned. Hungarian Indie pop never sounded so good.

I Believe in a Thing Called Love

I Believe in a Thing Called Love

by The Darkness

It a bit annoying that I can't find the version of this song that I want. AS much as I love the original here, the is a version by a band called, believe it or not, "Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Darkness" who did an EP featuring three covers of The Darkness in the style of OMD/electroclash. "I Believe . . ." had Enola Gay threaded through it. That said, this is one of the funniest song and videos ever. I'll see if I can upload the OMDarkness version (as long as I can work out how).

Bird Song

Bird Song

by Lene Lovich

I absolutely love Lene Lovich and think she deserves a lot more recognition. A place in the pantheon, please. Bird Song wasn't a hit. Why didn't you buy it? There are no excuses.

The Future Suite

The Future Suite

by Sudden Sway

Brilliantly subversive and an hilarious pisstake of the excesses of big business and the rise of Corporate Culture in the 80's. This is Thatchers Britain as Corporate anthem with love songs to credit cards (Omnispend Sway), a Self Financed Youth jingle, the most convoluted metaphor for the arms race, predictions of Facebook and mental illness caused by application of the wrong makeup. A work of genius wrapped up in sweet little pop singsongs.

Losing My Mind

Losing My Mind

by Liza Minnelli & Pet Shop Boys

Possibly the gayest tune in my music collection. Liza + Pet Shop Boys + Steven Sondheim = FABULOUS!!!! I think it could only be gayer if the Village People were doing backing vocals, but then the PSB managed to make a Village People song sound gayer still by inclusion of a Broadway style male voice choir . . . and a load of subversive Soviet iconography...it should probably be reissued as a benefit single for the fight against Putin's war on Gay men and women. But this is about "Losing my Mind". Great tune, great arrangement and the only Minelli I own. Honest guv.

Stanlow

Stanlow

by Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark

I've always had a soft spot for OMITD, even when they lost IT, they were still listenable. During their most experimental times, they would often end albums with a peculiar love song to inanimate objects - fighter planes, sea forts and this one about an oil refinery. A dreamy cacophony.

Out of This World

Out of This World

by The Rezillos

What shocks me most about this is that it wasn't a massive hit. Came out just over a year ago . . . my joint favourite post-punk band (alongside X-Ray Spex) and my scond favourite of their tracks after "Destination Venus" which i'll probably put up in couple of weeks time :-)

Touch

Touch

by Lori and the Chameleons

One of the GREAT lost pop classics. So monumentally charming I boggle at the fact didn't fall head over heels with it and make it a massive, massive world eating hit. People have no taste.

Considering a Move to Memphis

Considering a Move to Memphis

by The Colorblind James Experience

One of those songs that completely baffles me. I simply cannot work out what the genius of this song is. But it is borne of genius. Quality. (Hi Gabby!)
