Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue.


Old

The Royal Family & The Poor

Liverpool. 1987

 Captivating oriental tinted new-wave. This track is of the ‘In The Sea Of E’ album. Here’s what Mike Keane had to say about making this album: “The hardest thing has been doing it with no money. The whole album has been done on a grand total of £1000. I’ve already sold most of my equipment to raise the money, but nevertheless things work in mysterious ways. If you look at all the reasons why you should give up, or why you shouldn’t do anything because you haven’t got any money, then you’ll never get anywhere. I’m so much in debt now that it’s ridiculous, but I don’t care, because I know I can leave the country if I have to.” Read the detailed band biography in here.

New

Helado Negro

Brooklyn. 2011

Helado Negro: “Globitos means little balloons, in a way it’s a polite paranoid song. The idea is referring to eyes looking like balloons and how many different things run through your brain when you interpret people’s eyes when they look at you. Just a daydream and a paranoid delusion.” This beautiful track is of the ‘Canta Lechuza’ album out via Asthmatic Kitty.

Blue

Ed Turner & The Danilof Center

Tel Aviv. 2010

Cheeky post-punk from Tel Aviv. if you understand the language you would realize how gloomy & sarcastic the lyrics are, thus hitting the blue nerves, indeed. This is of the ‘Pushing Neon Lights’ album, which you can free download at the band’s Bandcamp.
