Currently lazing just off Lake Windermere, G&T in hand, looking out over the hills, on one end of a ropy as hell internet connection
This may or may not have influenced the selections this week
I think this one is another Nibbers special – the Italian Stallion has an ear for beautiful atmospheric Drum and Bass tunes, and Fairlight by Artemis is as lovely a late 90’s cut as I’ve heard in a good long while.
Last up this week is a little more upbeat from The Atavistics. Bathtime for Bonzo is a fantastic stompy 60s girl band RnB number. I have no idea who they are or where they come from and Google doesn’t help me. The image included on the soundcloud link is actually for a 7″ called Mickey’s Monkey by The Miracles, so I’ve no idea what’s going on …
This track seems to have a properly odd back story so it’s not surprising. It originated from a Greg Wilson mixtape ‘Alan Moore’s Mandrill Meets Super Weird Substance At The Arts Lab Apocalypse’, which in turn came from one he created with Kermit, of Ruthless Rap Assassins and Black Grape fame, called ‘Blind Arcade Meets Super Weird Substance In The Morphogenetic Field’ inspired by the words of Alan Moore himself, as explained in this article.
It’s all very weird, as anything involving comic gurus often is, but the music is top notch!
