Blur – Girls & Boys

by on Apr.06, 2010, under Cavia666

Girls & Boys” is a song by the English britpop band Blur. It was released as the lead single from the band’s third album Parklife, on 7 March 1994. Charting at number five in the UK Singles Charts, “Girls & Boys” was Blur’s first top 5 hit. In the United States, it reached number fifty-nine on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and number four on the Modern Rock songs chart.

The video, directed by Kevin Godley, featured Blur performing this song to a backdrop of people on 18-30 package holidays (which the band interspersed into the video). Kevin branded the video as “Page 3 rubbish” while Blur found it “perfect”. The front cover of the single was taken from a pack of Durex condoms.

The single release also includes a remix of the track by Pet Shop Boys, who later covered the track live on tour in 1994.

In 2003, Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke confessed that he wished he had written the song.

年轻的 Graham Coxon .. 突然想买一件 Damon Albarn 身上那种运动衫..

另外歌词是讽刺中产阶级生活的, 千万别搞错了. mv 拍的不错, 虽然我第一次看的时候没怎么注意, 就像 Beck 的 “Loser” 一样.

Roni Size – Brown Paper Bag

by on Apr.06, 2010, under Cavia666

Brown Paper Bag 来自 Roni Size 和他的组合 Reprazent 的专辑 New Forms. 首次发行是在1997年.

当时 New Forms 代表完全不一样的 drum and bass 音乐, 发售同年拿下 Mercury Prize 的最佳年度专辑. 虽然 drum and bass 音乐从1995年开始就有 Goldie4hero 这些人做出了固定成型的风格, 但 New Forms 的构造和想象力都非常不一般. 这实际上也是 Roni Size 出过唯一的好唱片.

Disc 2 里的 “Hi-Potent” 推荐跑步的时候听, 因为节奏很搭. 我已经听这个歌跑了好几年.
