Random assortment of music (videos)


I’ve got the wrong trousers on!

Here’s a catchy little ditty that I ran into. Its called Video Killed the Radio Star by The Wrong Trousers. Very interesting instrument choices. If you like them you can find more songs at their myspace page. They get big props for the Wallace and Gromit reference.

For the record…

I took these pics while playing around with different settings on the camera.  Figured they felt kinda “artsy”.  Record players are awesome for older works, like old jazz and country.  The ambient feel is just so different from digital recording.  There so much more warmth from records.  Speaking of which I recently got two live records of Johnny Cash in mint condition, first pressing.  While they’re not worth a lot financially, its still pretty damn cool.

I’ve recently been seeing a lot of publicity of the Andrew Sisters.  One of their more popular works Bei Mir Bistu Shein is my favorite by them so far.  Here’s the Puppini Sisters performing Kate Bush’s seminal work Wuthering Heights in the style of The Andrew Sisters.  Got that?  Yeah I had to think about it for a second too.


Well while trolling through the vast gem mine that is videosift, I stubmeld upon these two blokes. They call themselves Datarock and you can view one of their more popluar songs off their album Fa-Fa-Fa. They can probably be best described as Electronic/Rock. The song below called Computer Camp Love is definitely Nerdcore in my opinion.

While I’m not terribly taken by the song lyrically speaking, the beat certainly is very catchy. They are touring in the UK area it seems, so all you Brits get a chance to check em out live.
