RC 265: The KB Show

A show that’s been 4 years in the making, after the sell-out Kate Bush 15 night ‘tour’ it seemed the right time to finish this long-promised show (especially as I couldn’t afford the £300-1000 for a ticket, so this is my consolation). From mashups, remixes and covers, it covers the many decades of music from Cathy.

(I couldn’t find the photographer of this picture from 1979, so apologies if anyone gets upset with it’s use, let me know and I’ll change it…it’s impossible to find Creative Commons images of Kate – especially as she banned any recording devices or phones from her gigs :-( )

Still Life

A friend posted an article about the top ten Suede tracks, and shockingly ‘Still Life’ wasn’t one of them. The closer on Dog Man Star, it usually was performed acoustically in concerts, on record it showed Bernard Butler’s obsession with BIG orchestras which is why I preferred the live versions like the one I saw on TV. But I never knew that the tour had films, and above is the beautiful one for Still Life.

Funny the comments saying ‘Is this Derek Jarman’ – err no, he was dead by the time they were touring Dog Man Star, and sadly never got to get that old, let alone grow a beard. There is a certain Jarman-esque quality to it though, and certainly they did work together.

You can see this as it was originally shown as part of the Introducing the Band VHS/DVD.

I think I found where the new Cuban Boys are hanging out…

It’s in YTPMV (YouTube Poop Music Video) or MAD on YouTube – kind of like Soundclown mixed with cutup and what Cuban Boys used to do, with a lot of really rude humour. The YTP and YTPMV people seem obsessed with Michael Rosen and some very rude cutups…but also the same kind of gabba/happy hardcore and game music the Cuban Boys loved to create. Your brain will fry, I guarantee…Reminds me of Amiga Demos, oddly.

Oh and DON’T search for Michael Rosen YTP. A friend let me in on that, it’s srsly NSFW…funny, but I’m pretty sick, I loved that Cassetteboy Stephen Fry cutup for instance. The first one included here, the Michael Rosen Bohemian Rhapsody is fairly SFW apart from a few bits o.O

But this is some of the oddest shit you’ll see all year, especially the collabs like the Popcorn one below…brainscrambletime. This is next level shit, everyone seems to have copied Kutiman in the whole ‘make a track from YouTube musicians’ thing, but this is something else. And probably NOT what you’ll see down your local MetrO2RoxyPlex.

Are they obsessed by Take On Me or summat? The RickRoll and Red Dwarf bits are amazing stuff…

Ooh Funky Town YTPMV collab – good choice in music…just as long you try not to work out WHAT IS GOING ON?

The inevitable Popcorn covers…

WHY IS THERE A DANCING BREZHNEV? AAAARGH < BrAinSPlode

YTP It’s All Right Here At Your Fingertits

A very rude YouTube Poop editing that old Internet VHS guide that was posted a while back. Love the Internet Dream Sequence bit…Internet….internet….

Ban Drag Queens From Facebook!

And their Native American friends too! Just no! LOL. I suspect that the current purge of …bear names could be cross-fire from the person who has been reporting 100s of people at once, and started this whole thing…seems the search for ‘bear’ was the recent one. Really Farcebook, you need to get your reporting shit sorted, because it seems homo- and transphobes are having a field day…as well as possibly racists and the rest of their bitter trollkind.
