I've actually only heard a few of their songs ("Sexy Mistake," "Love Punch," "No Style"), so I'm not an expert on them or nothing, but I do like them all. I was just (belatedly) psyched to read your post because I don't think I've ever met someone else who's heard of them.

Ribs if you like all those songs I say it's well worth getting the album Check In. M Ex loves them and I tend not to listen to them much anymore but they are definitely cool.

Can anyone tell me who the heck this is ? Because it's awesome.

Just another in a long line of awesome resurrections by the Finders Keepers label. It seems like their modus operandi is to just let the DJ Andy Votel reissue all the obscure, aging vinyls in his collection. Their reissues include Turkish acid-psych funk, Welsh wyrd folk and fucked up soundtracks to British '70s exploitation flicks and Danish vampire-menstrual movies. A sampler's wet dream, basically.

That album (LE MONDE FABULEUX DES YAMASUKI) is bizarrely brilliant though. It's basically a Serge Gainsbourg-alike French producer messing round with a bunch of Japanese kids...production-wise, that is, and creating something that shouldn't be that funky or cool, but is. Damn near all of Finders Keepers' releases have something to recommend them. My second favourite reissue of theirs would be the LP Serge's producer Jean-Claude Vannier cut based on Serge's idea of a kid venturing into a valley of the flies to kill the fly king: L'Enfant Assassin Des Mouches. Check out one of the songs here (though it's really one of those 'you have to listen to the album all at once' deals).

Anyone heard of this or tried it? Teenager invents YouTube music player

A 15-year-old programming whiz from Iowa and his father have created the world's first YouTube music player, mining the site's extensive library of music videos free of charge.

David Nelson and his father, Mark, spent a year developing Muziic Player, a free downloadable player that allows users to organise, search, stream and create playlists from YouTube's catalogue of music clips. Since its worldwide launch last month, the player has been downloaded more than a million times, forcing them to add another server to handle the incoming requests for the player.


Muziic Player looks and works like iTunes, taking advantage of the content ID software built into YouTube to detect video submissions not supported by YouTube's contracts for removal. This also allows for compensation of artists and record labels that do hold contracts with YouTube. Unfortunately for UK users, YouTube's withdrawal of music videos from the UK site after a failure to reach a new licensing agreement with the Performing Right Society also applies to the Muziic Player, meaning users from the UK may be unable to view certain content with the player.


Sounds quite useful, and we quite often end up prowling you tube for tunes on an evening when having a little drinky. Just wondered if anyone else had heard of, or tried it.

I like their simplicity and dead-pan humour, and probably my favorite track is 'I wanna be sedated' from 'Road to Ruin', but that's far from their best album. Probably start with their self titled debut, if only for 'Blitzkreig bop', 'Beat on the Brat' and 'Now I wanna Sniff some glue'. If you're not a punk rock purist, then maybe try the Phil Spector Produced 'End of the Century' - it has Spector's dense 'wall of sound' production and brings out the pop elements of their sound, plus it has 'Rock'n'Roll Radio' and 'Chinese Rock'. Then again, maybe 'Rocket to Russia' would be better, with the likes of 'Tina is a Punk Rocker' and 'We're a happy Family' (and their cover of 'Needles and Pins' on the 2000 re-release).

... Tyrone is probably right; The best compilation/overview of their music that I've heard is 'Ramones Mania', which, come to think of it is where I started.

Re: Random Music

PostPosted: Wed Jun 17, 2009 2:09 pm

Actually, I'd say the best overview is probably "It's Alive," their live album. Most live albums end up with extended versions of the artists' songs; this one packs 28 of the Ramones' best blitzkriegs onto one disc, with only one of them lasting longer than 2 and half minutes. I'm not sure, but I think Joey Ramone might have broken the world record for longest time spent without breathing.

Other than that, I think Road to Ruin might be my favourite Ramones LP. That won't sit well with the diehards, but when you consider that they were named after a Paul McCartney alias, their fourth and fifth more tune-oriented affairs might actually be just as true to the Ramone ethos as their debut. That being said, the songs weren't really that great on Let it Ramone- I mean End of a Century, whereas Road to Ruin has a clutch of the best tracks they ever wrote: She's the One, Questioningly, I Just Want to Have Something to Do, It's a Long Way Back, I Wanna be Sedated, Don't Come Close, Needles & Pins. Shit, if they'd been born 30 years earlier, lived in Detroit and were black, they'd have pipped Smokey Robinson & The Miracles and The Temptations as Motown's best hitmakers.

EDIT: Incidentally, I'm not sure you should be taking any advice from someone who thinks the song's called:

Even if it did have a plausible story I would still call bullshit on it, but if you're going to go through the trouble of telling the world you went to another universe and brought back a new Beatles album on cassette at least have the decency to put some fake tape hiss on the mp3s you post.

Rage Against the Machine interview + performance that played this morning on BBC Radio 5 Live. Listen through to the end: the band go through the interview quite eloquently, and then they begin playing the clean version of Killing in the Name, before breaking out into the "Fuck You! I won't do what you tell me" bit right at the end, which eventually gets cut short by an announcer screaming, "Get rid of it! Get rid of it!" Pretty funny stuff.

I did my part and downloaded the track for 29p from Amazon, by the way. They're not my favouritest ever band, but I always thought they were pretty cool. And I really love the bass on that song!

It was rather good, especially on the show of professional curmudgeon Nicky Campbell. And them saying the proper lyrics kinda holds up the integrity of the song....sort of.

Pretty safe list for the most part.

For example, Joanna Newsoms Ys is way better than her first one.

I think we talked about that list in another thread. Personally, I think it's a great fucking list coming from Amazon.com, though I'd add a few of my own (mostly New Zealand indie bands, whom I'm kind of addicted to). One thing though that I think Ribbons pointed out, they have most of the right bands there but their choice of what were their best albums are is pretty random.

EDIT: I wrote that at the same time as Stereos, honest!
