One For Steenbeck


ONE for Steenbeck:

ONE Note Samba by The Postmarks

And a bonus one that has the word ONE in it:

MEGA STEEN BONUS:


This song is one of my top 600 tunes, I've been meaning to blog about it for, oooooh, about a year now. I love it the most, can't stick it in a genre, and think it makes for perfect skewed and moreish musics!

muchisimas gracias, blimpias mc flahias. I liked the One note samba very much, but I don't think it's better than the original. Which is weirdly perfect for me at the moment. And the other track I like as well.

Blimpy said...

seeing as you like the other track, i have added to the post for you. the new addition is just FAB!

Blimpy said...

incidentally - does aNYONE know ANYTHING about The Noonday Underground? Actually - don't answer that one - I like the enigma.

Blimpy said...

Off topic, but The Spill even got 139 visits on Christmas Day!!! Despite that being the biggest dip in the whole year, it's so sweet (i know I was one of the visiters!!)

steenbeck said...

There's a wee bit of information on Wikipedia.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noonday_Underground

So don't look if you don't want to know. Thanks for posting.

Blimpy said...

I HAVE TO LOOK!! I CANT HELP MYSELF!!

Blimpy said...

HOLY COW! Our former Guru reviewed them WAY back in 2006!! What goes around.......

steenbeck said...

Ooh, I like that You Keep me Holding On. Crazy mix of things, but good.

steenbeck said...

Ha! he sounded so much like Dorian Lynsky. Distinctive voice. I wonder what he's up to. He hasn't been around in a while, has he?

Blimpy said...

Whither the protoGuru?

Lynskey! Show yourself!!

All of this is kinda your fault!!!

ejaydee said...

It's been ages since we've seen him! That book must be unwilling to finish itself, the bastard.

Blimpy said...

Noonday Underground only has 793 myspace friends, bless em - but Robert Wyatt, St ettiene, and Comet Gain are in their top 8 - which is pretty sweet.

That said, the songs on there aren't quite up to the tracks I;ve posted.

K sera.

Blimpy said...

@ejaydee - was that the book that he didn;t want to tell us what it was about, incase we influenced it?

ejaydee said...

He did tell us what it was about, protest songs, from Strange Fruit onwards.

Blimpy said...

Oh, that's it!! I remember now. I wonder if he mentioned The Black Angels in it....

Also, Lynskey seems to be part of the tube map controversy:

Blimpy said...

I was thinking about the phrase "strange fruit" on the bus the other day. i pondered the genius of combining two words so effectively for at least 6 minutes, then had to get off.

Blimpy said...

Maybe we could help Dorian with the final few chapters about protest songs:

1. "Rehab" - Winehouse (No, No, No she sez - was that Gulf War 2 she refers to or what???)

2. "No, No, No" - Dawn Penn (was that Gulf War 1 she refers to or what???)

3. "No, No, No" - Def Leppard (was that... oh, I give up....)

Hey looser you cant evven post a pickture on you're blog. Yo are lame and so looser.

ejaydee said...

What about that song that goes Naaaaaaaa nananana, nananana nananananana

ejaydee said...

Was it Land of The 1000 Dances?

Blimpy said...

I thought you were referring to the "Koyaanisqatsi: Life out of Balance" score by Philip Glass, no?

ejaydee said...

Nah.

Blimpy said...

Oh.

Blimpy said...

Kaiser Chiefs?

They built their "career" on that though, didn't they?

Blimpy said...

Did they?

Blimpy said...

Didn't they?

Blimpy said...

Aaaargh, I'm never going to beat FP's mega commented posts like this, am I?

FP - you win the award for most consistently highly commented 'Spill posts ever, by the way! But then, you knew that, didn;t you? (leave answer in comments, plz)

Blimpy said...

Oh gosh, I'm getting hysterical here!! I think I should stay in less!!

ejaydee said...

Of course they

ejaydee said...

did.

ejaydee said...

Better than 2 in 1, 1 in 2!

Blimpy said...

Totally!!

Blimpy said...

I gooogled that, and apparently Madagascar 2 is better than Madagascar 1 according to the internets.

Blimpy said...

34!

ejaydee said...

Geeeeeet iiiin.

Blimpy said...

Or

Geeeeet Tooooo Beddddddd!!

may help me better just now!!!

steenbeck said...

you

steenbeck said...

boys

steenbeck said...

Blimpy said...

I think those darts players would feel less stressed if they wore cotton shirts.

steenbeck said...

nuts.

What do you think of this version of Strange Fruit. Is this sacrilege?

I find it powerful, but not sure...

Blimpy said...

the illest shit evaaaaaa!!!

(i may have copied and pasted that from the youtube comments, but i agree wholeheartedly with the sentiments)

i so have to go to bed, why have i stayed up to half one on a school night after doing 10 hours shooting during the day? why???!! WHYYY!!!!!??

Blimpy said...

43!

ejaydee said...

It's the luuure of the 'Spill. I blame Guru Dorian.

ejaydee said...

I'm liking that version of Strange Fruit, and it's too diferent to be sacrilege.

Blimpy said...

W$^IUYOGHJVCGFJKHUIOO*T&*O*^&*^%$£@

ejaydee said...

Oh, I hadn't heard Sticky Fingaz on it... I was never a fan.

ejaydee said...

Was that you posting weird stuff from Japan on every post?

steenbeck said...

That was strange, wasn't it? Our international following.

And I wish that Sticky Fingaz verse wasn't there, it changes the tone completely. A lot of Pete Rock's later stuff might be better instra-MENTAL.

steenbeck said...

50!!!!!

I dunno, you guys, seems to me like this is in danger of becoming a thread people post on without having anything to contribute to the discussion.


Soooo.....any chance of the posts reaching the age Elvis would've been this morning?

DarceysDad said...

I don't know about anything else, but you buggers overloaded my Inbox this morning!!

ejaydee said...

Soz, Blimpy made me do it. And I hope I didn't sound like I was dissing Dory. I hope he finishes the book so I can read it, and he's not the bastard, the book is, until it's finished of course.

How old would Elvis have been today?

steenbeck said...

Hey, I was serious about Pete Rock!!

Blimpy made me do it, and the 'Spill made Blimpy do it, so it's all the 'Spill's fault!!

saneshane said...

as the album is "On The Freedom Flotilla" is there a track for this weeks RR?
