someone call the doctor because this is going to be SICK.





20101121

oh dear...


too much time on your hands.com

20101120

at times of essay strife. one must follow three simple rules.

1. consume caffeine to raise heart-rate to 190bpm.

2. listen to an eternal cacophony of DRUM N BASS.

3. accept insanity as a consequence of academic productivity.

20101005

the abomination that is my attempt at a 4000 word essay is what is preventing me from the joys of finding beautiful electronic music to present you.

so this is all i have to say to my essay right now.

20100929

completely unrelated to electro but nonetheless blog worthy. cheers harry.

20100927

now that's what you want a crowd to do on a drop.


20100926

this makes my insides squirm

20100925

let's satisfy some electro stereotypes with this one ey....

20100923


tasty little find today!

big big love for the first one.
a combination of Barrington Levy & Yelle's Cooler Couleur
from the Crookers album
would surely seem an impossible task...
nay.

20100915

Estragon: Let's go.
Vladimir: We can't.
Estragon: Why not?
Vladimir: We're waiting for Godot.
Estragon: Ah!

Samuel Beckett Waiting for Godot


And I thought I didn't make any sense at times...

13th September. My Brother's Birthday.


I enjoyed the first episode of this.
The cinematography is wonderful in my eyes.
And my oh my how I love the hairstyles & costume!


Yeah so if this somewhat shitty September weather has been getting you down.
Start the day with these:







And once you've woken up. Check these out.

Consumed by words

You have this to blame for my lack of correspondence...


and this is what i found after typing the title into a search bar.
*major skills*


Franz Ferdinand - Ulysses (Kid Freakout Remix)

Curiosity led to this next discovery.
Curiosity didn't kill the CocoRosie cat.

(related to Ulysses by parelled levels of peculairity.)

CocoRosie - Jesus Loves Me (Bearbot Remix)



Oh and this is what youtube had to offer;
an animation
of Joyce's epic.
Got the jist?

the last of your
beautiful summer memories.

It's all about Rye Rye

Ok, so I have a bit of a love crush on hip-hop electro (don't quote me me on the exact name of the genre. I'm not well versed in such things)

So it's just a case of some good tunage!

Rye Rye, a Baltimore local. She's got some good tricks.



I actually played the Stanton Warriors Remix of her song Bang on my show many moons ago & since then have indugled a little into her musical inventory. Here's some of what I've come across.

Enjoy my pretties!

Rye Rye - Tic Toc (Whis This 3Step Remix)

HOW FUN IS THIS NEXT ONE!!

Rye Rye - Bang (Prince of Ballad Remix)

Rye Rye - Rock Off Shake Off
Top notch Bangers & Mash for this one

If you fancy a gander at more of the joys of Rye Rye, here's a good place to start ->her MYSPACE

The beauty of life...perhaps not just as we know it. Can I hear a 'oooo'?

I know this is a little off topic for Coco..Electro but i never saw a rulebook!
I expected no more from tonight than to continue browsing the web for more musical delights until my dear mum mentioned that there would be a meteor shower tonight!
Intruiged, i came across such websites as these:
So i thought I'd see for myself what Perseids had to offer.
Equipped with a pouch of tobacco, a cheeky drink & fur coat (for warmth) & my trusty straw hat to stop the barnet ruining the view, I was ready to bare witness to the wonders of the universe (oh its all about the sensationalism this evening) ...well until I caught sight of myself in the mirror & realised I resembled a 1950s pimp. The hat was swiftly removed.
So I'm fortunate enough to live in a house in country, blessed daily with an amazing skyscape.



Even more fortunate to have a east facing back garden perfect for catching the action. I was lucky tonight in that the sky was amazingly clear. Serious case of star measles.

Let's set the scene. One seriously comfy outdoor sofa, the click click of crickets accompanied by the rustle of trees and the odd swooping bat (which scared the shit out of me) and the most amazing view of the sky, I was hoping I hadn't built myself up for nothing.

Unfortunately I am in no way literate enough to even begin to convey the magic of what I saw next so I guess I'm going to have to resort to the good ol' fashioned tally. (Or numbers in this case as I haven't a clue how to get tallies on the keyboard)

Big Ones - 6
Little Ones - 6
Movers - 5
Aeroplanes - 7

I'm guessing my less than scientific names for the meteors may need some explaining. Cue horribly witty descriptions...

Big Ones - The meteors that you reaaaally want to see. Lightening streaks of violet tinged with a golden amber. Don't blink cause you'll miss them but they are breath-taking!

Little Ones - Cheeky flashes of white shooting across the sky. Simples.

Movers - Ever been convinced that a star was moving? Well these ones do. Undistinguishable to the untrained eye ( i have two) from your average star but if you watch real carefully you can trace them on their silent amble through the mesh of stardust. Fun to watch as they'll send you into deep thoughts about the uncomprehendible distances they must be travelling! Deep shit mannn.

Aeroplanes - Those flashing tricksters that first send your heart into a flutter as your imagination flashes back to childhood fascinations with ET and Independance Day only for your nonchalent adult knowledge of mankinds advancement in flight to bring you back to reality. Dull.com.

And so after some seriously space induced inspiration and borderline insanity, my watch beeped farewell to Thursdays 12pm to welcome Fridays 00.01 am. That plus my rather chilly behind was my cue to retire to bed & to the land of nod.

Definitely inhaled far too much stardust tonight & will probably read this tomorrow and realise how much of an arse I sound. But hey whats wrong with a bit of arse every now and then. Ooop.

Don't worry, the meteor shower should last till tomorrow night so if you missed out tonight you're not too late to catch a glimpse of a 5000 yr old meteor! WOW.
I did try to get photos but it turns out my smartphone isn't so smart after all! Internets always a good bet though.

"you're drunk. yes but you are ugly & in the morning i shall be sober" ...unless you stay up till 8am drinking STAG.



I think more blogs should be like this! (big thank to Ayana for this exquisite heads up)

I MISS YOU CALIFORNIA QUEEN


It is time! For another musical update! Because you know you have nothing better to do with your time than read this...


N.B. I actually began writing this post weeks ago so this music may be a little out of date for those finger on the pulse type fellows & lasses but whatcha gonna do. Nothing. And I'm going to continue having lots of summery fun :)


Lets start with this Brooklyn band who go by the name of Sleigh Bells. Signed to M.I.A's Neet Recordings, it's clear there's some influence from the Born Free queen herself. Not always a bad thing. I have a lot of time for Infinity Guitars, dare I say, it conjures memories of Lenny Kravitz's Amercian Woman. No? Just me then. Their album Treats was out on May 11 but with their single Tell Em riding the Radio 1 airwaves, Sleigh Bells seem to be pathing the way for a promising new sound of anarchist electroclash after a a run in with a citreon saxo rudeboy.

Intriuiged? Well you can listen to 5 of their tracks here.

If you really like them you can buy Treats from here!


Let's split up the music essays with a video extravaganza...
GRANNY BREAK-DANCING. (go on. click it. you know you can't resist)
I think i have a thing for the whole "im still 18 in my head" pensioners. wait. who doesn't?

DJ Ruth Flowers. You GOD.



I want to be just like you when I grow up :)


Heard this before?? Sound of Stereo - Metric (spend some pennies)
You may have but if not your musical journey of pleasure begins right now!

Myspace / SoundCloud


Ok so this next one would have to booty shake, head nod, shoulder shuffle, arm twist and foot tap dance all at once!
It's Mustard Pimp - Telesiege


Always on form and a dab hand at remixing too Mustard Pimp certainly never looks out of place amongst the fellow producers of the quality rich DIM MAK Records.

errr. sexy.
Assiah Alcazar Martin


This next one excites me. I made a CD for my car & forgot that this was on it....when it kicks in. oh my. I nearly ran down an old dear. Not deer. It was in the middle of Rugby for christs sake.

Myd & Sam Tiba - Next Novel

I also have a lot of love for his track Barbie Weed which you can listen to on his myspace. Hiiii!

Myspace / Soundcloud


This next one's not you're usual Coco..Electro filth but we all need a bit of a scrub up every now & then...or just a rather catchy song.

Flight Facilities - Crave You

this remix is also rather suitable for aural enjoyment.

Flight Facilities - Crave You (Dom Bird Remix)

" i walked into the room dripping in gold"



Lovely jubbly



I have now decided though. Less long & inconsistant posts. More regular tit bitty ones :) My life is far too spontaneous these days!!

I love you all so much. I'm off to the land of nod.
