Dunno how I got here, but this as in a tab I’ve had open for months.
On the current listen it was really bugging me I couldn’t figure out what it reminded me of. Those bass and twangy electric piano sounds. Clicking on other things realised I’d heard his song Holiday Action a bunch of times on the Doing It In Lagos compilation.
There was also a Nick Cave version of Cosmic Dancer playing when the documentary subject was close to passing away. Devastating, but such a great fit for a person who seemed to have such a full life of good and bad. It’s stuck with me all day.
Picked this live version with Warren Ellis to share. I used to listen to The Bad Seeds and Dirty Three a lot when I was in my 20s. It’s nice to connect with something by them both again.
Never gave T-Rex much time before, but what a lyric.
Was a good doco on SBS last night called The Cleaning Company, about a trauma cleaning business and its owner.
There was a conversation with one of the regular clients and they mentioned they had a band and played a little bit of a song.
She has one of them Youtube-famous city pop songs, so I’ll skip posting that. But this’s another real good one.
Her other records are a bit patchy, but here’s a song off the one I like most so far: Yahhoo!!. Maybe it’s just the Ito Chieri and OutRun vibes?
Jumping back in time a bit—I meant to add this song.
I love that rich ‘youuuuuuuuuuuu’ so much. It’s like an owl. Penetrates my skull, like I’m singing it myself. Reminds me a bit of the way Miki Matsubara sings her vowels. Song itself reminded me of the way that みずいろの雨 song by Junko Yagami comes in.
