Testing.... 1, 2, 3

 It is with trembling fingers that I gingerly attempt my first 'Spill post...I don't have too much confidence it's going to work, so I won't write too much.

(If it works) this track is from the real Japanther, the lo-fi DIY indie-punk band from New York that I stole my blogging name from. Taken from their brand new album "Tut Tut, Now Shake Ya Butt".

WARNING! Contains rude words!

My Favorite Tune

It's working! Good tune, too.

Japanther said...

Phew....that was hard work, but so happy it's working! Thanks for your help!

It's not really called "My Favourite Tune" of course, the track name is "Radical Businesman" and Spank Rock had something to do with it according to the LP sleeve.

Yay! it works!! And a spanking tune too!! I've swiped that one!

It gets easier the more you do it, by the way.

Posting mp3s, not fucking the cops, that is.....

I like the way the tune takes it down a notch towarss the end. very cool.

Thanks! I'm glad people are enjoying the tune, i've been a Japanther fan for many years, years the back story:

Japanther are a duo from NY who have been around for several years,they had a couple of CDR's (which I don't have) and then at least 4 albums proper after that. The early stuff is so under-produced that it does take away the enjoyment a little - although the catchiness of the tunes always manage to shine through the grime!

From the early, more punky period I really like the "Operating Manual For Life Here on Earth" mini-album. The new album ("Tut Tut, Now Shake Ya Butt") which this track is from, is completely different from previous albums in that they have let Penny Rimbaud from Crass (who also produced the album) loose on a couple of really really long spoken word rants that take up most of the album...but for me it's their best album yet with more than a couple of killer classic Japanther songs that benefit from being much better produced.

Oh...and they have a fine line in album titles if you haven't already noticed ("Dump The Body In Ricki Lake" and "Don't Trust Anyone Over 30" being 2 more")

Now, i've just got to master Audacity and i'll really be in business.....

Congrats, Japanther - I enjoyed the tune. Probably not one I'd turn to for most moments in my life, but absolutely sure that when the inclination or opportunity arrives to fuck the cops, it'll be blasting out in my head.
