Two For Steenbeck





As mentioned in a prior comment - here we go Steen, these are for you..

(Video 1 also fits in with Soupus' post, I still know all the words to it, as I just proved to Mrs McF with some really bad rapping...)

Cheers, Blimpy, you've just saved me from having to go root through some inaccessible boxes for the Dream Warriors single!

Did you like my prezzie?

snadfrod said...

How bad was the rapping? Celine Dion bad?

Blimpy said...

like brett anderson on dog man star

Blimpy said...

japanther - i think there's new svenonious soft focus on vbs, ian mackaye and mike watt

Blimpy said...

ian mackaye is old, i thnk calvin johnson is one of the new ones. gosh i'm tired...

steenbeck said...

WHich track do you know all the words to?

Thanks, McFlah. I'm still thrilled to have my pseudonym in a spill post title. After all this time you think I'd be jaded...

Japanther said...

thanks Blimpy! - I've watched the Ian Mackaye and Calvin Johnson ones, but not Mike Watt. The "We Jam Econo" Minutemen documentary was ace though.....will get watching forthwith!

I liked these two actually, I definitely see the connection between Filthy and DP (settle down), in the first clip it sounds like Del the Funky Homosapien.

the original sampled by Dream Warriors- Hang on sloopy, by the Count Basie Orchestra, if I'm not mistaken- was one of my favourite tracks. The Dream Warriors were cool. Loved I've lost my ignorance with GURU, as well, especially the mix on the rebirth of cool series.

Blimpy said...

Ha ha! Excellent call Nilp - I'm now listening to:

It's just like the Dream Warriors but with less rapping!

The Dream warriors next single plundered in a similar vein:

...Which now makes me think of Austin Powers more than anything else.

nilpferd said...

Groovy, baby..
My parents borrowed that Count Basie LP from some swingin' friends, and I wore it out..

steenbeck said...

I'm loving the Count Basie and all the Dream Warriors tracks. Hasn't this been a good week on the spill?

nilpferd said...

Something jazzy to listen to while waiting for RR which reminds me of how old I am and also brings feelings of nostalgia (Eta Green Onions flavoured chips, a southern hemisphere thing, you had to be there..)
Count Basie's Green Onions from the same album as Hang on, Sloopy..

steenbeck said...

Green onions!! I've only heard the Booker T version. And John Lee Hooker.

This has turned into a nice little thread. Thanks McFlah.

This week on the 'Spill has been bloody excellent, lots of great posts and millions of comments, and it's only just Friday!

'Spillers rule! FACT!
