What a gem!

Doing the all important organise what ipod music I need for my trip....and just made this AWESOME DISCOVERY...

Thanks to Zelig666 there are heaps more great Youtube videos for THE TRIFFIDS AND THE GO-BETWEENS!


it's circa 1988...

I see my long-time music idols at my current age and think...damn, why wasn't I born 20 years earlier?!!

THE TRIFFIDS/Trick of the light(Live)

Here's another beauty:

THE TRIFFIDS/Save what you can (the video by truckstop media is strangely compelling too...)

THE GO-BETWEENS/ The Clarke Sisters

p.s does anybody have a clip for THE TRIFFIDS/Holy Water OR THE TRIFFIDS/Blinder by the hour?

okay this girl needs to get back to packing...LOL


Everything about this song just seemed appropriate... ;)

This Drowned World Tour 2001 version is very very different to the original video clip ;)

That's what makes her such an enduring superstar- the ability to reinvent herself over and over and move with the times...

The Best? Of U2

U2 is one of those classic bands that EVERYBODY likes and can sing or hum along to at least one of their songs (or a few)...they're kinda like The Beatles in that way I guess...

I'm not their biggest fan - I only have 4 albums - in any case I thought I'd dip into that sticky mess it is to try and pick out some favourites...


So let's just say most of the time my favourite is often Stay, Faraway So Close or Sunday Bloody Sunday...and who can forget Beautiful Day?

I think because they have so many great songs you can only just pick depending on what you feel like on the today, I feel like...


it also happens to combine 3 artistes I like in the one clip...U2, William Orbit and Anton Corbijn :)

Múm: Go Go Smear the Poison Ivy

So, it's been a while since I pulled out this album...nice for a change from the female acoustic vocals phase I've been in lately.

Here is a favourite from the album: DANCING BEHIND MY EYELIDS- lol I can relate to that!!!

There's nothing that gives me more PLEASURE than Playing This at FULL BLAST on a quiet overcast Sunday :-)

p.s I also love how Múm never neglect the whole audiovisual experience- always making interesting vids to match :-)

Discovery! Rachel's

arghhhhhhhh...LOVE! at last, an interesting music discovery after too long a drought!

they say if you like michael nyman(composer of 'the piano') you're sure to love this!!!

so awesome...not encountered this style of music much before...LOVE!

the video clip is really cool too.
