Have a drink but don't spill it.

Time to set up the mid-Atlantic party.

TracyK said...

Tequila by Terrorvision and Bran Van 2000s Drinking In LA, which I am going to put on in all its full glory, perfect for a warm spring night!

steenbeck said...

EASY?!?! Wait, maybe it's because I haven't started drinking yet. Let me get a glass of wine and then try again. I haven't had a chance to listen to your spring selection yet, either.

nilpferd said...

I seem to hear Portishead- numb through the fog... otherwise I'll have to sleep on it

steenbeck said...

Is that Bjork saying "alcohol"? I got some that were already gotten, but I'm pretty stumped.

On a totally separate note, listen to the line-up of the Roots' Picnic in Philly next month...the Roots, Gnarls Barkley, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Santo Gold, and a bunch of people I've never heard of. Ouch.

Blimpy said...

gin and juice, underworld, chuwumbawumbawumbawumba, bran van drinking in LA, the streets, frisbee by Beck, some Crunk tune? , terrorvision, kylie minogue being drunk, ryan adams?!

Cat power, starsailor?!

saneshane said...

Blimpy

Kylie 'Drunk' correct

starsailor yes
others right see above

Blimpy said...

aaaah, it's called "beercan"

saneshane said...

that the one!
steenbeck needs 13 (part 1)
off to the puppet theatre tomorrow so will judge the efforts in the evening..
good start by the 5 of you.

steenbeck said...

Ahhh, nooooo. The Pressure!! I'll get it, I swear. The weekends tend to be bad for me to listen to stuff on the computer, so tomorrow morning....watch out!!

TonNL said...

Jesse Malin - Mona Lisa
..that's the 'Drinking like shane McGowan' part of "Part II", great song, nice guy (had the pleasure of having a couple of drinks with JM once....)

CaroleBristol said...

Did I hear someone doing One bourbon, one scotch and one beer? The original is, I think, John Lee Hooker but lots of people have covered it.

saneshane said...

Jesse Malin- mona lisa correct and a great song.

and one scotch, one bourbon, one beer is right and a bit unfair cos it's not Hookers version this one is by Amos Milburn give it to you cos there's a lot of covers.

TracyK said...

Hmmm, blame the strawberry wheat beer Saneshane! I didn't realise there was a part 2, I though I caught Edwyn Collins (3) and Roddy Frame's (8?) Scottish burrrrrrrrrs, 2 sounds just like Thom Yorke oooh and Kenickie's Come Out 2 Nite: "gettin' drunk in the park"! Yay!

steenbeck said...

Is that Screamin Jay Hawkins--Strange?? (#14) I'm going crazy with #13. So familiar, and I just can't get it.

ejaydee said...

Ooh recognised Tipsy by J-Kwon, and there's a song by Common right after that.

steenbeck said...

No, it's not Strange, it's Alligator Wine.
Ejaydee, I listened to Souls of Mischief--I did like it-a lot. I'll look for more.

ejaydee said...

I think that Common song was from Electric Circus, I'm getting warmer.

Steenbeck, there's a song that I don't think is available anywhere called Cab Fare, which is just wonderful. Unfortunately the sample couldn't be cleared. But thank God for youtube.

steenbeck said...

Ejaydee, I heard Cab Fare when I was looking around on youTube. And a few others. I liked everything I heard. They remind me of a few different things, all of which I like. And I was interested to read about their Hip Hop collective Hieroglyphics. I find the idea of a creative collaboration like that so appealing.

As for this quiz, Saneshane... I'm so bad at these things. When you said "Steenbeck needs 13" Did you mean that it would be something I'd recognize, or were you suggesting that I need a beer, as the person in the clip keeps saying?

ejaydee said...

It's Aquarius by Common!

saneshane said...

ahhh up-date time

tracy gets kenickie come out tonight
ejaydee gets j-kwon tipsy
and common and the album title (and the track now aquarius..good work.
steenb you get alligator wine and you may indeed want the beer #13(but as a veggie you wouldn't want what she asks for with it)

saneshane said...

1 4 8 9 13 16 and 17 on part one left

1 3 4 7 8 9 10 11 12 14 15 and 17 left on part two...

back later!

steenbeck said...

A pigfoot?

ejaydee said...

I don't think 13 (part 1) is Nina Simone, could it be Esther Phillips?

saneshane said...

it is a pigfoot and it is Nina
good teamwork there!

steenbeck said...

I don't know about everyone else, but I need clues!! #17 for instance...

I'm listening to 93 'til Infinity as I type. Thanks, Ejaydee.

ejaydee said...

A quick google gave me the answer, didn't know that song. But while searching for it, I found this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mH5ZE3N8cxU
which is a bit I mentioned to you at the social saneshane, Nina doing Feelings, mocking it, then subliming it.

steenbeck said...

She's the best!! I'd never seen that, ejaydee, thanks. wow, it made me weepy.

It reminded me of the the version I have of My Father. I'll post it. And Go Limp, too, which is more funny than sublime, but has an edge. I just love hearing her talk and laugh.

saneshane said...

Nina Simone 'give me a pigfoot & a bottle of beer' for those that don't know it

it's a great clip ejaydee..my other half says turn that up now!

ms steen #17 is the first manufactured boy band

back with more clues when I finish sorting stuff out

ejaydee said...

The whole concert is worth a watch. The audience is typically Swiss, they hardly say a word or make any noise apart from polite clapping between songs. She basically spends the whole show trying to get some reaction form the crowd, growing more and more frustrated, which shows a bit here.

goneforeign said...

Ejay: Thank you, that was spectacular.
Never seen nina sing or play like that before, an amazing piece of film, never seen any artist become so involved with a piece of music and her audience, never seen or heard nina play like she does in that middle piece. Great cameraman, great audio.And she absolutely has the last word. A definite keeper.
How do you keep youtube at the highest resolution?
Got to go back and see that some more and anything else from that night.

ps: Who's the reggae group at 4 or 5 on 1?

ejaydee said...

About the resolution, I guess it all depends how much you compress it, and then how you encode it, and the source of course. I looked for more stuff from that night on youtube, and there was nothing apart little snippets, but there is an AMAZING version of My Baby Just Cares For Me, at Montreux but a few years later it seems.

Don't follow youtube's instructions and upload a 320 x 240 file cos the actual youtube player is bigger than that (425 x 3something) - tis best to go from bigger to smaller.

#1 wave energy around the uk

#8 dennis Duck plays drums
#9 spo-dee-o-dee
#16 Darcysdad would get it
#17 hey hey...
#18 not his son or daughter or ex wife..tho they all sing.

steenbeck said...

The Monkees?

goneforeign said...

ejay: I checked amazon, they have the DVD for $10, I'm ordering it from them.
That 'my baby,...' cut is also amazing, a piano tour de force, never heard her play like that. It reinforces my thoughts that she's one of the most overlooked and underrated pianists in jazz and you can always hear her classical chops, Bach's always in there.

shane: Thanks.

DarceysDad said...

Evening All. Back from my sunny Bank Holiday weekend, and yes, Shane is right about Pt1#16:

Mark Lanegan Band - Morning Glory Wine. I was going to stick my bottom lip out that obviously no-one was listening to my BookLaunch Social CD, til I realised I chose Strange Religion (from the same BubbleGum album) instead, didn't I?!

Back later when I've caught up with everything else ...

DarceysDad said...

Is pt1#18 Loudon Wainwright? Can't ID the song?

steenbeck said...

Just watched My Baby just Cares for Me at Montreux, and I'm UNDONE. She kills me.

I suppose everyone's seen the Harlem festival Ain't Got no I've Got

Catcher said...

Part 1, Number 4 - Magnetic Fields, Love Is Like A Bottle Of Gin.

Back if I get any more.

steenbeck said...

I cheated a bit (well, did some research) and I think 17 is Monkees DW Washburn.

ANd Ejaydee, been listening to Souls of Mischief in the car, which is my only chance to concentrate on music, LOVE IT. Thanks.

saneshane said...

steen DW Washburn monkees is correct

DsD Mark Lanegan Morning glory wine that's right he's on your social- was waiting for your return to put us out of our misery!
and Loudon Wainwright III is a good call too
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ei7DySnoKTQ

Catcher Magnetic fields Love is like a bottle of gin correct too.

steenbeck said...

Sorry, I cheated again--is that Jerry Lee Lewis Drinkin Wine?

Love the Red Red Wine, video--low lighting on the turntable. Classic

saneshane said...

steenbeck gets Jerry lee lewis 'drinking wine spo-dee-o-dee'

#1 and #8 (after club tropicana) to my surprise no takers.

steenbeck said...

Dream syndicate--Days of Wine and Roses?

saneshane said...

Sherlock steenbeck wins!
British sea powers 'blackout' at #1
is a bit muffled...

for a bit of extra cheating you could go to
imeem.com
search for shane m in 'people'
on page two you will see
shane wantsbeer
look in profile/music

should have the whole lot there..full songs not 30 second clips
couldn't work out how to do a playlist I'm a bit dumb...but it has been a fine test of how to use audacity.
And getting on imeem (wont work for me using firefox.)

DsD said...

DAMNATION!

Just come on feeling pleased with myself for digging out the Dream Syndicate tune, and i've missed the boat . . . !

Blimpy said...

aw man, i have the dream syndicate record, and I didn't recognise it. man, i'm annoyed!!!!

saneshane said...

oh well
sure if you hadn't been away for the weekend it would have seeped in quicker!

do you want me to leave part two up
its tough! still 12 songs un-solved.

steenbeck said...

And I know them ALL, because I just went to imeem. Mwah ha ha. I'll stop guessing. It makes a good playlist, though. And I know when Saneshane's birthday is, if imeem is to be believed.

saneshane said...

imeem is only giving you 30 second clips again.. even going round the houses..did work earlier..oh well! is that right steen?
I know your birthday too..ha ha.

Blimpy said...

i know them all too now, not that i would have got any more than i already did though.

Blimpy said...

steen; your birthday is two days after mine in June!

steenbeck said...

Let's have a party!!

saneshane said...

from the start of june 'til the end.
Maybe enough time for us to all have a turn on the decks...

steenbeck said...

We can meet halfway--for the entire month of june we can set something up with a bar and a dj booth in the middle of the Atlantic, and anyone that has some time to spare can drop by.

Blimpy said...

i'm in!

Blimpy said...

incidentally, i just checked our figures, and visitor numbers are up again.

if all 2,145 unique folks who've read our blog in the last 4 weeks come to our party and stay for the average amount of time (4 minutes 14 seconds) then we'll have an amazing yet brief party going on!

4.14 is just the right amount of time to play nearly all of "My Sharona" by The Knack!

Party on! My, my, my -Whooooooo!

goneforeign said...

A week ago we were taking about breaking 50, now everybody's going for the 'ton', except of course Maddy whose numbers are down; if I were her I'd rejoice.
