it's the big tunes we all know and love! - Anything from the last century to what's
HOT and FRESH.
CHART 12 APRIL 2000
The Time Is Now (Echo)
A handy tune for people without a watch- I thought Moloko was a something
U got in Starbucks until last year.
Oasis- Who Feels Love (Big Bro)
Delicious! A Beatles track? More like Kula Shaker I reckon- oh hold on, they
did Beatles tributes as well!
Doves- The Cedar Room (Heavenly)
When the whole world is sliding towards dance, the x-Sub Sub boys go guitar-
and it's bloody great!
Embrace- You're Not Alone (Hut)
This is a great anthem and the sentiment reminds me of the James Taylor classic.
Jungle Bros- Freakin You (Gee Street)
Who needs those pests the Bloodhound Gang when there's real class like this
Ian Brown- Golden Gaze (Polydor)
Is Squire choking yet? Ian's a messenger from another plane, and no not the
one on which he was stitched up by the stewardess.
Richard Ashcroft- Song For Lovers (Hut)
Full marks to the white soul master for keeping it real, post-Verve.
LSK- Love or Hate (Sony)
Modern soul is so full of whining, where did the magic of Marvin et al go?
LSK show soul can still be about your soul...
Beck- Mixed Bizness (Geffen)
Good summary of the Yankmaster's musical strategy really.
Eels- Mr E's beautiful Day (Geffen)
Who is Mr E? Surely not the guy aka Lord Pill? Methinks not, this is about
lovely summery feelings...
Bellatrix- Sweet Surrender (Fierce Panda)
One in 50K Icelanders are in Bellatrix and Elisa's got the best voice of the
Is She All You Want (Peoplesound)
Modern soul is so full of whining, where did the magic of Dinah Washington or
Mary Wells go? Not fags but beautiful & classy anyway.
In Vegas- Dirge (Concrete)
I boycotted Aisha cos it's mysoginist, but U can't argue w/ this...
Animalhouse- Small (Boiler House)
Mmm- the wierd joy of early Supergrass and the promise of the Mystics- good
Sahara Hotnights- Drive Dead Slow (BMG)
Cor those Swedes- I'm convinced rock'n'roll is dead but these guys want to
prove me wrong- and she's got a voice!
Embrace- New Adam New Eve (Hut)
The other Manchester brothers go heavy on the next single, it's rock but not
as we know it Jim.
Much Against Everyone's Advice(PIAS)
I had a build-up of Soulwax but much against everyone's advice got it cleaned
out w/ a water jet.
Do You want To Get Off (Peoplesound)
There's an instantly mesmerising dark groove to this dowload.
Star- I Am The Sun (Harvest)
Bumped into the singer the other day- "nice one Sun" I said.
Velocet- Vito Satan (PIAS)
Peculiarly happy track from these noisy moody oddball gits.
THESE ARE THE
Ain't No Love (compo)
I reckon Disco House in the early 90s was better than now- they who became Doves
Fontella Bass- Rescue Me (compo)
Mm what a name Fontella- anyway here's the original not the sample on the radio
Slow Bongo Floyd- Open Up Your Heart (Epic)
A cheeky groove that anticipated the way a lot of current dance crossover was
Beatles- Not A Second Time (Parlophone)
Promising lads these- here's an early one only the real heads will know, but
I'm gonna change that!
