RC 257: Sinking Under The Waves I Saw A Strange Brass Fox

As the band played on and I slid under the waves. I saw a strange new world, a chrome country of glittering golden brass bands and singing children, J-Pop stars singing death metal, a sailor’s daughter remembering the songs of her father, a dream of Belgian New Beat and electronic computerised pop. And foxes, obviously.

Then I realised it was all a promo for Kate Bush’s new tour so I escaped the ticket touts by getting on a flight to the South Indian ocean, as BA suggested on Oceanic 850. Bermuda Triangle Records here I come!

(Cover is various panoramas I’ve done but never posted over the last 2 years – Bestival, Scotland, Japan Festival, Painshill)

Tobacco Ride

o.O Can’t think of a more intense, dark and strange video than this in a long while. Certainly not that many are also hosted by what looks like an undead Southern Gentleman version of Mick Fleetwood.

This Eric Warheim video for Tobacco’s Streaker is  really not safe for work…or most people. But as Bill Hicks said…it’s a ride. (via Cartelmike and many other people)

Gruff Rhys – American Interior

Can’t wait for this album to be released, all about his distant relative John Evans, a farmhand who went to America to look for an apparently mythical tribe of Welsh-speaking native Americans. Interesting how that’s not completely far-fetched, that Vikings and the Welsh seem to have headed off to the Americas, and the former definitely knew they were there, traded and maybe settled in the north – and also came back – so why not Madog?

John Evans didn’t find the Welsh-speaking Indians he was looking for, but did become an explorer, and mapped the Missouri river – a map the famous Lewis Clark expedition used later.

SLACKCIRCUS Chvrches video

Love this ‘unofficial’ video for Chvrches ‘Strong Hand’ by SLACKCIRCUS (fresh from finally releasing their He-Man HEYYEYAAEYAAAEYAEYAA cover on iTunes) which takes footage from the bizarre 80′s Crystal Light National Aerobic Championships which I’ve featured here before. Works great – love the little captions too. And the band love it also :-D

I’d watch this

One of the few ‘gay cards’ I have is a love of Golden Girls, mostly because Bea Arthur ROCKED. So I’d watch Super Golden Friends if it was real too ;-) (via DJ Jay-R)
