Nuggets 193 – Lofi and thrashy + Laneways

Laneways was hot and crowded, a bad place to find a beer in a hurry. Girls, Yuck  and the Horrors were worth the wait. A friend said that that the line-up was a bit indie wimpy and I agree. More thrash next time please. How about Royal Headache and Total Control from Australia, the Screaming Females,  Milk Music and The Men  from the USA, the UK’s Black Tambourines and Christchurch’s gift from the rock gods, the T54’s? If you need some alt wimpy, give us TV Girl.

PS, run do not walk to your PC and download this Black Tambourines EP. It’s free. I almost took out some other tracks to make way for more of their excellent thrash. It’s that good.

The picture is of course from UFO. I can’t work out which SHADOW operative this was, but she’s not the one that later married Michael Caine.

Meanwhile, back at Laneways, here are The Horrors…

Nuggets 185c- UltraLoFi – bad girl

Part 3 of my noisy subterfuge to avoid making my 200th mix.

Die Jungen, Honeydrum and Dirty Beaches make noisy yet tuneful lofi. I hear Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly in their songs.

More from my favourite Aussies, Royal Headache, then two girl group covers with an ex Vivian Girl covering the Vivian Girls singing Where Do You Run To, School Knights do Runaway while The Feeling of Love, last seen Waiting for the Cheerleaders to get Drunk, investigate some seedy goings on in their town.

Patty Hearst features, probably the most famous stockholm syndrome sufferer of recent times.

What this post really needs is more hyperlinks – but instead, here is the music.
