david hamilton


ahhh, memoryhouse. these remind me of summer this year.

teen daze//shine on, you crazy white cap

this is cool, but i think they're a bit late. and the name of the band is too cliched to be genuine - it made me cringe, but maybe thats just me. but whatever, its a good song and the footage really suits the style. perhaps not as remarkable as the washed outs and memory cassettes, but still definitely worth the 4:09 minutes it takes to watch/listen.

an american prayer//jim morrison

Found this album by pure chance the other day, one i thought i would never have on vinyl. perfect condition, with original booklet, so much more exciting the downloading.

"Do you know the warm progress under the stars?

Do you know we exist?

Have you forgotten the keys to the Kingdom?

Have you been borne yet & are you alive?

Let's reinvent the gods, all the myths
of the ages

Celebrate symbols from deep elder forests
[Have you forgotten the lessons of the ancient war]

We need great golden copulations

The fathers are cackling in trees of the forest

Our mother is dead in the sea

Do you know we are being led to
slaughters by placid admirals

& that fat slow generals are getting
obscene on young blood

Do you know we are ruled by T.V.

The moon is a dry blood beast

Guerilla bands are rolling numbers
in the next block of green vine

amassing for warfare on innocent
herdsmen who are just dying

O great creator of being

grant us one more hour to
perform our art
& perfect our lives

The moths & atheists are doubly divine
& dying

We live, we die
& death not ends it

Journey we more into the

Cling to life
our passion'd flower

Cling to cunts & cocks
of despair

We got our final vision
by clap

Columbus' groin got
filled w/ green death

(I touched her thigh
& death smiled)

We have assembled inside this ancient
& insane theatre

To propagate our lust for life
& flee the swarming wisdom
of the streets
The barns are stormed

The windows kept

& only one of all the rest

To dance & save us

W/ the divine mockery
of words

Music inflames temperament

(When the true King's murderers
are allowed to roam free
a 1000 magicians arise
in the land)

Where are the feasts

we were promised

Where is the wine

The New Wine
(dying on the vine)

Resident mockery

give us an hour for magic

We of the purple glove

We of the starling flight
& velvet hour

We of arabic pleasure's breed

We of sundome & the night..."

'it was and is "surround sound" for the extreme fanatic'- Wayne Coyne

i was reading a flaming lips review in the paper a couple of days ago - talking about their new album of pink floyd 'dark side of the moon' covers - and it got me thinking about all their albums, and then i thought 'zaireeka', and then i thought 'shit! a zaireeka listening party would be perfection'. so now im stuck on this idea, ive never heard them played properly with the 4 CD players and youtube has tons of videos of people having their zaireeka listening parties. so i want to join the craze (yes, im 13 years late). ive heard bits and pieces, and its interesting, but i dont think its right untill you've heard it the way it was intended to be listened to.

concept-y albums scare me, they have the opportunity to go so horribly wrong. bring me some CD players and alcohol so i can conquer my fear.

i want that one

and this...

and this...

and this...

and this...soon

expect me tomorrow red eye.


nothing i can say will do this justice. theres a key-tar! i didn't know anyone had used them since the 80's. mostly this is just an ode to a robert palmer clip, with models doing some bad instrument miming and 2-step dancing. so its pretty much the best thing ive seen in a while, eurotrash has never been so entertaining. if only eurovision had stuff like this...oh wait, it does.

thankyou erica.

memorycassette//asleep at a party

this is obvious, but it all really does sound and look like being asleep at a party. that dissoriented feeling of waking up after having a nap in the afternoon and seeing that its night and not knowing how much time has passed. or when you were young and your parents were having a party but you had to go to bed early. whenever i hear this song i get that feeling. i can never get sick of this song.

If any topic has been sucked of its goodness it would be vampires (pun so definitely intended). and even though this may not be the original vampire movie, it is the best. not much in terms of a soundtrack other than a few iggy pop songs and the opening scene which is a live performance of 'bella lugosi's dead' by 'bauhaus', which is worth watching the movie for in its self. its dark, atmospheric and iconic 80's greatness. but the score is what you should really listen for. composed by micheal rubini and denny jaeger, its cold, calculated and absolutely perfect.

of course the awesome stylised-ness and the too hot chemistry that is catherine deneuve and david bowie helps the whole thing along as well.
