God Machine - One Last Laugh in a Place of Dying (1994)

Because it's brilliant and dark and fascinating and I heard it today for the first time in ten years and I instantly loved it again. Please listen to it.



I'm going to carry on with this when I have something worth sharing that isn't already being shared by a million other people, but while I'm looking for that here's a link to the person who had the same idea as me, but did it about 1000 times better and much more comprehensively.

Anyway, Pukekos.

Tke Element of Crime - "The Things We Do For Love" EP

This is where the internet seems to give up on me. I was sold this at the time (1995?) on it having some connection to the Blood Sausage / Huggy Bear group of bands who I still love. Digging back through my music, I'm surprised at how much of it sounds like Pavement, who I loved then but don't love so much now. Well, overexposure and all that, and Steve Malkmus got rubbish.

Anyway, back to this. I'll edit a photo in above this if I can get my flatmate to take one (my camera doesn't like connecting to this, or indeed any, computer). It's the dirtiest garage punk I'd ever heard by that point in my young life, and still sounds pretty amazing now. "Soul2", the catalogue number it had on Soul Static Sound - a great label, if the things I have of theirs are anything to go by - is the only number with no entry next to it on their Discogs page. But never mind that, listen to the great great music.

Ui - "Match My Foot" EP

Definitely an unexpected treat when working through my 7" singles. Ui were a sort of post-rock-funk band who, after this single and my only real interaction with them, went on to make a load of albums which I'm probably going to track down as soon as I've finished this post. This contains not only the A and B side, but an extra 1-sided 7" single that you could buy at the same time which contained yet another remix. And thoroughly confused me because the first 30 seconds sound exactly like a single skipping. Anyway, music!
