Cornelius – Star Fruits Surf Rider

by on Jun.26, 2010, under Cavia666

“Star Fruits Surf Rider” 来自日本音乐人 Cornelius 1997年的专辑 Fantasma.

Cornelius 是 小山田 圭吾 Keigo Oyamada  的化身, 他曾经是 Flipper’s Guitar 的一员, 这也是当时 Shibuya-kei 风格的重要乐队之一. 另一个成员是 小沢健二 Kenji Ozawa. 在乐队期间 Oyamada 也参与制作了 Pizzicato Five 和 Kahimi Karie 的唱片.

1991年乐队解散后, 两名成员分别单飞, Oyamada 作为 Cornelius (名字取自1968年电影 Planet of the Apes 中的猿人) 开始了个人事业, 并在欧美另类音乐圈获得一定影响. Fantasma 这张专辑当年推出的时候很受欧美乐评人推崇(这在日本音乐圈并不多见). Damon Albarn 还给这首歌做了 remix, 不过很一般, 不放上来了.

最后八卦一下, Kenji Ozawa 的叔叔是指挥家 小泽征尔 Seiji Ozawa, 小泽征尔的老师是 Herbert von Karajan 卡拉扬. 卡拉扬最好的作品点这里.

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.
