Breadcrumbs dropped on music wanderings.

  1. Another Day In The Sun The Moffs

    Slowly getting through the process of moving this blog from my partial backups to here, and going through old posts is putting me on lots of familiar paths!

    But today I’ve found myself digging in a book looking for the names of people from the Little Bands scene to try help with a thing on Discogs, and remembering Louis Tillett and Wet Taxis. Back when I first read that book there was no Youtube, and it wasn’t always easy to find whatever CD or record you wanted (though there was starting to be some renewed interest in that kinda era of Australian music) so I was never able to hear much, even though he sounded interesting, and you’d see things on Rage sometimes.

    Anyway, I’ll post some of that in a sec, but this popped in on my searches, so here’s a sun-tinged fuzzy MBV kinda thing from a band I’d sometimes see on Rage, but never got a record of. This kinda sunny, poppy, miserableness is something… I guess I can enjoy with a little nostalgia still :)

  3. Right Back Where We Started From Maxine Nightingale

    This is the other film-related song. I watched both of these on the same day, and both have been taking turns being stuck in my head.

    I like the thumpy organ, fits the film it comes from well (The ice hockey film Slap Shot).

    I like the sparkly ground in this clip.

  4. Sky High Jigsaw

    I’m posting a couple of songs from a couple of films I watched recently.

    Sky High is the main theme from The Man From Hong Kong, an Australian and Hong Kong co-production that is a pretty fun Golden Harvest James Bond thing set mostly in Sydney. The fight scenes are actually well shot, and it turns out co-ordinated by Sammo Hung!

    Here’s a nice little talk by the director Brian Trenchard-Smith, and should lead to some others if you follow the Youtube trail.

    This clip is how the song first appears in the film, and a tops credit sequence to boot.
