Flash Boy's Strange House.......

Post by Flash Boy on Tue Jun 02, 2009 10:53 pm

Here's a little thread where i'll post a music video/song that i like that i think kinda fits in with what you people at Shock Totem are all about........dark, surreal, twisted, otherworldly, strange, dream like, macabre etc etc etc you get the point. Kinda like the visual equivalent to Shock Totem Radio!

Anyway first one up................

Probably one of the greatest singles of the 80's no one's heard of (but that sadly is what happens to a lot of music produced from the ass end of the earth!), ticks all the those adjective boxes above.......

A few years ago when i saw this first clip on Rage (A local music video show for insomniacs) it freaked me out and challenged my idea of what music is.

Surely the soundtrack to the end of the world.........

I love NEN....you know Blixa from THE BAD SEEDS spearheads them, right?

Their cover of the Nancy SInatra tune "Sand" is awesome.

I love hearing people try to pronounce Neubaten's name. I only know because I had a friend in the military who could say it properly.

Yeah definately........Blixa also plays that wonderfully spaced out slide guitar on the Gun Club's "Yellow Eyes" and i'm pretty sure he's played on some of Nikki Sudden's stuff aswell.

It is a great cover of "Sand", my fave track off Nancy & Lee aswell..............definately not the last time Nancy gets a mention in this thread!

These guys are the real "Kings of Oblivion". When there's no more fun left in the funhouse, where depravity knows no bounds and when your mind is fully shot.................This band will take you to a "place called bad".......just make sure you book a return ticket..........

This is music as pure performance art, a folk song electrocuted, stretched and drawn into a dark moody epic. Building tension and dynamic until it's fully dismantled in a heap and left bleeding on the stage.

Gripping, compelling and mesmerizing performance from the most godamn essential band on the planet as of right now..........

You know how I feel about this band...The tune "Shark Fin Blues" is one of the greatest songs ever recorded.

I kinda remember you getting Wait Long...... but wasn't sure if you liked it, now i know.

Have you got any of their other stuff particuarly the two preceding albums Gala Mill (2006) and Havilah (2008)? Gala Mill is particuarly brilliant, it was recorded in an old abandoned mill down in Tasmania! Leads to some dare i say some spooky 16 Horsepower like atmospherics. And the song Oh My from Havilah is their best song ever imo.

Like one of Flannery O'Connor's entrancing short stories set to a breezy acoustic blues with strings to add melodrama (like the song needed anymore), a song that leaves more questions then answers!

Nick Cave eat your heart out.........

Like fellow continental drain drinkers the Birthday Party (BP drummer Phil Calvert is BR's drummer), Died Pretty, Scientists, Beasts Of Bourbon etc, Blue Ruin drew from a twisted post punk blues but unlike the others their black hearts also lay in the sleazy grooves of Blaxploitation soundtracks and in blue smoke filled jazz clubs.

Really shows up Jon Spencer for what he was.............
