Trash ONE – add ONE
yep, this week the rules have changed – I like changing rules!
We have a wobbly based FANGS playlist, if you would be so kind as to trash your least favourite, I’ll be mildly angry and after your blood. But you can make it up to me with an added bonus track.
I’d also like to know a movie or book that you’d recommend on the subject – AIP’s a closet Twilight fan, heehee (he’s been listening to the soundtrack – not reading the books or watching the movie – he’s not imploded with pressure that much) – keep it Vampires – I’ll do a wolf playlist next time I get a go.
thank you – my children of the night.

I will be back to recommend these on RR later – not sure if I can get any time before the boys are in bed – player after the jump isn’t in MY proper sequence, I’m sure you’ll cope – Sakura, please skip Cherry Lips as it isn’t on topic – I just love it – enjoy.
This has been totally fun for me – I love a playlist I have to work at – and I completely understand how it doesn’t connect for others .. I hope there’s some tracks to entertain in here.
There’s more bleep freak tunes than I’d normal put on the’spill (I haven’t gone overboard – I could have just swapped the playlist with tracks made using 8-bit sounds really annoying the hell out of people who like traditional instruments)…
I’ve included a good smattering of different genres to even it out, not too sure about the musicians colours, as I don’t have a Pantone chart set up for the artist skin tones.
Most tracks are bang on – internet themed – others are subtle – but I believe the lines about the internet are pertinent and important to my feelings for the song.
There’s not a single track that I think are ‘not up to scratch’ with my normal nominating (personal) taste. In fact, tracks 22-61 are all sadly left out because I do try not to bore everyone on here.
I hope there is something to entertain and it’s not a whole: abort – retry – fail.

“The band broke up because I couldn’t bear Rotten anymore because he was an embarrassment with his silly hats and his, like, shabby, dirty, nasty looking appearance”.
I asked for filthy, dirty songs…..The interpretation being up to you.
It was an interesting experiment – the starting blocks slipped the rude and lewd songs out – then other forms of dirt piled up in the nominations playlist. Some were too close to home (terminal illness) and other momentarily not appealing (I’m in a house with vomiting children).
Others were ‘just‘ about sex and didn’t feel dirty at all – they obviously weren’t doing it right… I still picked some of these tunes trying to create an interesting playlist as I went.
RR extRRa wants filthy, dirty songs.
The interpretation of this is up to the nominator.
Perhaps it’s characterised by, or having the nature of filth; disgustingly or completely dirty/ messy, as in needing a wash.
Then again very dirty (as in rude) or obscene also counts.
Unique, interesting, vibrant songs are all I ask – some quirky thinking will be appreciated – I’m not offended by blatant, although I do cherish subtlety -
PLEASE only songs that you love and a few words about why.
With the amount of rain that has soaked the soil around here and Christmas just being over – the only objection I have is anything by MUD.
Use the RR comment box to add links
(then cut and paste into here) -
so the system doesn’t overload with too many youtube clips for those on slower computers.
links anywhere are fine for me – spotify, dropbox, youtube, etc.
Most of all have fun.
I don’t watch many things on television – but when I do my imagination takes off and creates it’s own versions of what’s happening…
You have until this evening to tell me who I thought played each character in my The HouRR all are people who post on RR or the ‘spill.. be nice now… explain why if you can.
Vast amounts of Christmas ‘spill pints for the funniest.

Tokyo all female three-piece TOQUIWA release their hi-energy J-punk in the UK on October the 22nd, 2012. Scopitones announced TOQUIWA’s self-titled debut on digital release and limited edition tour CD.
They begin touring the UK on 26/10 in Bournemouth – I’m going to be there (in a home made bright orange TOQUIWA T-shirt) – I also made a T-shirt using the ticket from a live Wedding Presents Ukrainian Sessions gig. But I can’t wear both.
This is the track listing and below the review are Smash Hits style questions sportingly answered by the band.
(I want to post this today – so I will have to ask Sakura to advise if I’ve got anything in the wrong places)
The self titled album by Toquiwa on the Wedding Presents Scopitones label, should almost be called go out and get ‘em girl – such is the frantic pace that they erupt with perfect pop rock. The first 13 seconds set up the album (you heard right – 13 seconds sets out their manifesto) – Fantasticly playing the many influences and condensing them into a tight Toquiwa package.
Strangely managing to be extremely talented musicians yet still exuding that punk ethic of innocence and naivety.
The tracks have so many astonishingly catchy segments and hooks, you wonder how the pace can be kept up, but keep up they do, building and building, twisting styles and era’s together as if timelines were squeezed, squashed and smashed into their musical brains. Until in comes out sounding as though these things should always have sat together (superbly) in each 3 minute track.
Not only that, they know how to sequence an album – just as your head might explode keeping up – (ten second bar room blues, into superfly 70′s style, into a quiet millisecond break – roaring back into .. you get the drift – I’m loath to compare because it all sounds so Toquiwa – but as reference you could detect The Animals merging with a Curtis Mayfield track with hints of Kirsty MacColl’s weariness and wonder, while a Status Quo repetitive rock riff underpins a track – and quite loud quiet indie rock aesthetics jostle in) they take a breather with a ballad – and then we are invited to party hard once again, ending with an enthusiastic Wedding Present adaption to thrill and inspire while closing the album out.
It’s fantastic fun – superbly performed and feverishly played. Total enjoyment.
Would they be happy to answer my frivolous questions linking to each song on the album?:
It’s my youngest sons 2nd birthday today – what better present could he have than his Papa doing a post about embarrassment on the ‘spill – what? lot’s of songs about bad sex and masturbation – yep, that’ll be the one.
I’ve cut this down to a sensible 13 tracks – all are relevant except Over the Rhine – it has one mention of a rodent pet (but is so good it needs to be included) – I love the subtlety in ‘album of the year’ – the importance of the cheap flat with mice running across the floor at night .. the return while she reclaims the records sends them laughing until it doesn’t hurt anymore… I should be working – so hope you enjoy:
