Australian Art Pop Punk Rock

Australian Art Pop Punk Rock

Today is the first Snap General Election day of 2017 in the UK. I’m saying first because the UK politics are just full of surprises and you never know what is sneaking just around the corner, whether that is Theresa May with a knife (she just as well come out of her shell) or just another snap election. Actually, I don’t know whether that is legally possible actually…

Anyway on a cheerier note:

I’ve been listening to some awesome tunes lately. I’ve come across Regurgitator back in early 2000 thanks to my ex. Mark who is from Perth, Australia. Originally born British his family moved down to Perth when he was still a toddler so he’s had a good few years down under enjoying some awesome (and also some shit) Australia music scene.

Regurgitator (wiki page) has a lot of good songs (if not all of them although some are clearly better than others!). Their lyrics are mostly beautiful taking the piss from the standard normal stupidity of life, tongue in cheek, romantic, to the point and just generally silly. This song rocks my heart at the moment:

But they have amazing rocking tunes such as this one:

And this one is just wicked:

At the same time emerged Spiderbait with the female vocalist Janet English. This song is full of happy and it always reminds me of my 2 trips to Australia and the beautiful ‘sunshine’:

And guess what, Janet English & Quan Yeomans (Regurgitator lead singer) have started going out in 1996 and created this baby – Happyland:

I can imagine this song can drive people mad hearing it more than once but still – what a beautiful creation.

This is not even a handful of the amazing stuff that came out of Australia back in the 90’s but still hat down to the Ozzie’s. Thank you for blessing us with good music!

Nirvana & Grunge

Nirvana & Grunge

I think the best time 20th century ever had in music was the 90’s. Of course, this is questionable as each generation will be of absolutely different opinion. But for me, all my emotions are embodied in this decade of grunge, metal, and shitty pop.

My favorite band of all time? Well, there is so much good music but if I may say – Nirvana – Smells like teen spirit from the album Nevermind.

Off-fucking-course! I know it seems such a cliche nowadays as this song is the most popular from the album (and I love all of the songs from this album and In Utero as well as Bleach) but it still sounds so heavy, hearty, soulful, miserable and just soooo good to mosh to. You need to hear it loud tho! I mean really LOUD!

Part of me was destroyed when I heard the shocking news of Kurt blowing his brains out with the shotgun back in 1994. It’s been 23 years now. Fucking holy god of grunge. You died with him. All the other grunge bands that were left behind kind of left the scene and moved on.

But you left something behind. Grunge may be dead in a general sense. But not in my heart. Fuck you society. I’m wearing Doc’s with my tutu tomorrow.
