Song of the Day #38

Hot Chip – How Do You Do

From Hot Chip’s new album ‘In Our Heads’, this is the second track and it’s AMAZING. I think I’ve listened to it about twenty times in the last twelve hour period, and it’s still not boring. Which is great. I can’t wait to dance to it in Berlin’s Columbia Halle in November. That will make two viewing of this London band in Berlin – which is either really stupid or really cool. I’m happy either way because they’re cracking.


Song of the Day #80s Special 2

Modern Talking – Brother Louie

This song was on one of dad’s singles tapes that he made years ago, and for some reason we used to like him speeding it up and dancing to it. We were young. Plus it was a treat as it would ruin the tape to play it fast too much. Anyway, I found a 7 inch of this in a Berlin flea market last year (and I secretly love how immense that sounds – it’s not pretentious because I openly admit it’s cool) and it turns out that Modern Talking are essentially a German Wham!, so what’s not to like? Enjoy the culture kids.

Ps. Apologise for any of these “adverts” they keep putting at the start of youtube things – I haven’t been on the net in a while and they seemed to have changed everything. Bastards.


Song Of The Day #I Can’t Wait To Live In Berlin.

Boys Noize – Jeffer

I don’t think I need say much more apart from HOW GOOD ARE CLUBS IN BERLIN GOING TO BE?
