This is turning out to not be as shit as I thought it would be. The track with the RZA 'Way Down' is the highlight for me. Almost enough to forgive the terrible, terrible OBEY video, seriously can we please forget about Shepard Fairey, the dude gives me the creeps.

Check out Karin Dreijer's old Band: Honey is Cool. Pretty Lo-Fi Nineties stuff, but kinda all right when it gets going. Hints of what was to come with the vocals.
Why are their no interviews with The Knife? There's one in Swedish (I think) and another with a gimmicky Jew embarrassing himself in a shower in NYC, and that's it. I would love to see how they make music in the studio. Please?

Another song I had forgot about, these guys were all over the place when I first started noticing music as a lad, way back in the 90's. Its strange seeing how people like you and me dressed and acted back then, I wonder if Underworld came out today would they be wearing white rimmed Wayfarers and have 'jaunty' haircuts, album covers with bits of antlers naively drawn on on beige sleeve. I'd like to think not, then again imagine having to endure the crowds of baggy jumper'd pre-Cold Feet-ites telling you they loved you and touching your face instead of the clumps of bitchy, good looking art students biting their top lip a bit and not dancing enthusiastically at all. I know what I would choose, sadly.
Still I sometimes wish bands today would dress more anonymously,
and have a dancer as part of their line up

I've been looking for this video for about four years now after seeing it on 120 minutes. Today I felt all summery and searched it and its just as good as I remember and the song is even better. These Icelandic guys had a bit of a varied career and I think they're still going. I believe you can download this for free on their webshite too. Here ya go boy...

I'm pretty fascinated by the life and times of Haille Selassie at the moment, I bought two sick t-shirts with his face on them from Depford market for six quid. I'm also pretty fascinated by Jamaica and the Rastafari and their weird little habits. I'm surprised they can get out of bed in the fucking morning smoking joints like the ones in this video. At 2.40 it looks like someone is taking a shit on a record press.
