I can’t believe I let this happen again. This has been probably the 3rd year in a row that I’ve vowed to go see the Scissor Sisters in action and once again, I can’t go. I even led the charge about 4 months ago when I heard they were coming. They’re performing tonight at Zepp Tokyo and tomorrow night at Gan-Ban @ Ageha which just so happens to be the same night that Hello Kl!tty will be spinning at Ninja (Die Antwoord) @ Trump Room (but more about that later).
The Sisters and I have a history. Listening to their first self-titled album and “Ta-Dah” helped get me through some low times when I first moved to Tokyo. My poor ex-housemate would hear songs like “Return to Oz” and “Get it Get it” on loop every night without fail (smile Mel ;)) To say that I am sorely disappointed to miss them would be an understatement. I fear I’ll just go and wallow in my self-pity while I watch vids on their Vevo.
Enjoy these remixes of their latest album”Night Work”
And an oldie but no doubt a banger
Scissor Sisters – Kiss you off (Mr. Oizo remix)
Hmmm, I think I might just play that last one on Thursday… Hopefully I’ll see you when you’re back in Toks again soon. Kl!ttytronic x
My nose is one lazy sonofabitch. It believes my mouth should do all the breathing and it should just sit there looking pretty. This cold isn’t easing up anytime soon. Cuss. So, how incredibly appropriate it is that Hello Kl!tty will be spinning at Sniff Sniff @ Trump Room tomorrow night? Uncanny as it is, we’re super excited to play again at another one of Trent’s parties. Last Sniff Sniff was earlier this month and through the success of that we expect it to be even crazier this time. Come watch the kitties skin this bunny alive!
Did I forget to mention that Trippple Nippples will be sniffing about too? Here’s my personal favourite:
Trippple Nippples – RIP MEAT (Bestrack remix)
Also Das Moth will be doing his Moon/Wrong EP Release set
Das Moth – Moon
I have a fever. And not the good kind that Peggy Lee sings about. It seems that I’ve gotten what’s been going around Tokyo for the past couple of weeks.
Rest assured though, while hopped up on meds and sipping on my juice box I still posted some songs that ironically popped up while listening to my iPod. Have a healthy dose of these sick tracks… If you’ll pardon the pun.
If Deadmau5 and Justice had a baby, it would be Wolfgang Gartner. I mean, with a name like Wolfgang, how could you possibly not be destined for greatness? (Note to self: Change name to Wolfgang Van Guetta…). Anywho, Wolfgang just yesterday debuted his music video to Illmerica. He posted on his facebook that it’s a “nice little trip through American history with some crazy graphics, if you pay close attention there is some funny stuff in there. . .” And right he is as I’ve watched it about a dozen times since yesterday, you see something new each time and it doesn’t hurt that the track is addictive.
Here’s a mash-up of Justice vs. Wolfgang Gartner – Illmerica Are Your Friends (Steve Camp Mashup)
And finally, Crookers is just what the doctor ordered
Crookers vs Miike Snow – Remedy (Magik Johnson Vocal mix)
Well this blows. My laptop won’t turn on and I’ve never met anything I couldn’t turn on *wink wink nudge nudge. How am I to stick to a new year’s resolution of keeping a blog without a functioning computer? On the plus side, it’s Friday and the weather looks fantastic outside. So in the hopes of my beloved just going through the Lazurus Syndrome, why not join me as I dance around the apartment listening to these tracks?
My spirits are always lifted when I hear me some Fake Blood.
I absolutely cannot get enough of Boys Noize, and when AC Slater is thrown into the mix it’s like “Computer, what?”
Deadmau5 saves lives! Did I hear Super Mario spitting fireballs?
Deadmau5 – Limit Break
