Thought you might like to see how infographics begin; before they get all neat and tidy. This is one I’m working on, a Venn diagram of the overlap of bands that you get from Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young. This is just the basic layout. There’ll be a lot more bands eventually.

Daft Punks

without comments

I’m not really a fan of the new album. There’s a couple of okay songs on there. But, I still like them as a band, even though Discovery was the last record I genuinely loved. I love how they look, though. So I did a drawing of some different Daft Punks, starting with their initial helmet phase all the way to their recent appearance at the Monaco Grand Prix.

That’s three of them above. You can see the rest here:

“Craig!”

with 2 comments

I was walking back from the supermarket yesterday afternoon, listening to Doolittle. It’s an album I don’t listen to very often. Partly because I over-listened to it at the time, and partly because, well, it’s my least favourite. Not in a snobby way, just cos it was popular: I just prefer all the other albums. Anyway, during There Goes My Gun, there’s a tiny bit of background vocal that, when I was a teenager, often sounded like my mother was calling me from downstairs. This happened with a fair few records I seem to remember. I can only remember a couple of records with a sound like that now: the aforementioned Pixies song, and Egg Man by the Beastie Boys. The sound is in the background around 1m 30s into the Pixies song, and 1m 28s into Egg Man (9m 19s into the YouTube clip cos it’s the whole album). It’s Ad Rock saying something like “ray,” I think. But, it can’t be just me who hears things in songs like someone is calling them, right? Right…?

It’s Grim Up North

without comments

I done a map regarding the fantastic 1991 single It’s Grim Up North by the Justified Ancients of Mu Mu. I love this song. It is not only a great record, but it reminds me of good times. Specifically, it reminds me of good times in a bar that no longer exists called Key Largo in Lincoln. You Love Us by Manic Street Preachers also reminds me of that bar.

Anyway, here’s a link to the full map: link to the full map.

Bucket

without comments

Really not sure why, but I can’t stop listening to this at the moment. Maybe it’s because I’m so far away from home, but it makes me feel a wee bit nostalgic for England. But there’s that yobbish element to the song, too, which I’m very happy to not be around. The video, though, is still a whole big bucket of fun.

Earworms

without comments

In the back of a car on the way back from a weekend in Oaxaca, I found my head was rotating the same melodies over and over again. We obviously know these as earworms. When the earworms changed, the next one became just as insistent. I present all five of them to you, dear reader: Primal Scream, Menudo, Los Angeles Azules, a national anthem, and Sr. Bieber.
