to set the scene (my scene, your scene, always the wrong scene) Ed Harcourt:
Hanging With The Wrong Crowd
electric riot/ jeff lewis/ blockheads
Mods, Rockers, Teds And Skins
Punk Is Dead
Dance Little Rude Boy
k-os/ specials (oh I loved skinhead ska girls!)
now from 18 to 23 we danced in fields titted off our heads like the nutters in the youtube clips.. my friends got vans and kitted them out and we travelled from place to place on occasions bumping into who ever was DJing with Spiral Tribe.
Me, I always got home to my big fat mattress eventually.
In Seach Of The Youth Crew
if anyone says 'Hey You' I always answer with "the rock steady crew" or "..the one that looks like Christmas, come over here and kiss me, kiss me" unfortunately my 4 year old now copies me.. he's right on the zeitgeist with his peers!
(Hey You) The Rock Steady Crew
Amateur Night at the big Top..
Simian are bound to offened.. if you're not in there then you should be offended!
(please don't listen if you are easily offended.. skip it)
El-p.. I love this track.. and yes it probably makes me a middle aged white ex-backpack (this is to do with graffiti) hip hop fan.. I love easy genres.
Jukie Skate Rock
A.R.E Weapons version of a headbanger probably isn't mine.
American Analog Set are punk as fuck
Punk as Fuck
and to finish off.. as I have restricted myself so much Galaxie 500 do a lovely cover.. and I certainly didn't waste my experiences of musical cults.. luckily we never had to settle for just one.
Don't Let Our Youth Go To Waste
I just noticed we missed post 2000 because blimpy had the audacity to go on holiday and not keep an eye on things... 'spill just gets anarchic without our squire.
enjoy the tunes.... I put 27 in dropbox.. I really did restrict myself honest!
