Like I was saying on the show last week, I’m so far behind on music releases it’s just not funny anymore. I’ve missed some really good stuff over the last year.
However, thanks to Dave Imlay at Galaxy Records I got to have a listen to The Golden Awesome‘s album “Autumn” which was released November 2011 by M’Lady’s Records and must have got an NZ release earlier this year. One for all shoegaze freaks.
Guns. Gyrocopters. G Plan armchair. Stroked white pussycat. Ninjas. Spaceships. Secret base in a volcano. And fricking piranhas WITHOUT laser weapons on their heads. Fricking. Piranhas. Only Roald Dahl could have written it. And only Sean Connery could have fronted it without laughing. Genius. Evil genius. That’s right – it’s You Only Live Twice…
One for the music nerds out there, the amazing story of Donnie & Joe Emerson. A farmer notices that his sons are really into music so he builds them a studio and they record a lost classic in 1979.
Been listening to Ariel Pink’s new album “Mature Themes” and enjoying his cover of Donnie and Joe Emerson’s 1979 lost classic “Baby”. Apparently it’s been known about for years in record collector circles but I only found out about it recently via The Guardian Music Weekly 8 June 2012 podcast.
