This song seems to have been following me around recently. The guitar riff is utterly infectious. It is also a slight surprise to me that The Cure haven’t featured in my 365 days journey until now.
As 365 days nears the milestone of reaching the 600th artist to be featured (599 and counting…) we have been taking stock of what has been posted so far.
Look out for artist number 600 in the coming days. Let me know if you have any suggestions…
Belouis Some* – Imagination (Mr Rossi False Opposition Edit)
Mr.Rossi, the DJ who remixed this sent it to me speculatively over Soundcloud. It was great that someone took the time to send me something, particularly given that it is exactly my kind of thing.
I really like it’s sound – a modern take on a quintessentially 80’s track. I also think it follows on rather well from Helen’s Ian Dury post yesterday given both track’s somewhat irreverent vibe.
Ian Dury and The Blockheads* – Hit me with your rhythm stick | (Helen Chandler guest post)
Hit me with your rhythm stick / It’s nice to be a lunatic. What a great lyric. Every couplet in this song makes me smile. Not in a beaming ‘I’m so happy’ sort of way, but more in a wry ‘ah, very clever’ acknowledgement of Dury’s lyrical elasticity. Ian Dury was fantastically strange, clever and original.
