Bless Playlist 31/1/06


Tonight’s best new song was ‘The Tank’ by VAEG. Where did I find you this, shiny, shiny gem? Why, on the cyberwent of course! VAEG is Thomas J. Oldani and he makes wonderful electronic music that you should check out if you’ve ever nodded along to Boards of Canada, Ochre, Cheju, Touane or any other melodic IDM. I could be telling you big fat porkies so you’ll just have to find out for yourself. Thomas, unlike the BPI or RIAA, realises the internet is the only way that new artists can get heard. After all, Sony have bought all the airtime on radio with big, fat bribes. So, he’s stuck up all his stuff to download FREE from his site. Once you’ve downloaded his shimmery loveliness, send him your money. Or at least a thanks in an email.

Big Black's 'Songs About Fucking'

The best old song was Big Black‘s ‘L Dopa.’ It still sounds fucking mental now, nineteen years later. If you want to hear how piss-weak modern scary industrogoth bands sound, check out ‘Songs About Fucking.’ It’s worth buying just for Steve Albini’s rambling liner notes. Just don’t ask him if you should sign to a major, mmmkay?
