End of the Christmas week qs

So here’s some Christmas aftermath questions:

1.  What is the best Christmas present you received this year?  Result of Boxing Day Test Match is a valid answer, but will be accepted one time only

2.  What is the wackiest, craziest or wickedest Christmas present that you have ever given or received?

3.  Do you have any ‘traditional’ presents, given every year?  Do you get a tea towel from Aunt Hortense every year?  Does it drive you bolo or make you laugh?

4.  How old are your Christmas decorations?  Tell the truth.

5.  Brussels sprouts are for life, not just for Christmas.  Discuss.

Tight Pants

Ron Asheton (The Stooges): Nico stayed a long time, about three months. Iggy never said if he was in love with her or not. But I remember after she left, Iggy came downstairs looking for some advice. He came up to me and said, “Well, I, I think something’s wrong, maybe you can tell me what this is?” So he whips out his cock, squeezes it, and green goo comes out. I said, “Buddy, you got the clap.” Nico gave Iggy his first dose of the clap.

1. “Search & Destroy” 2. “Tight Pants”

‘spill HAVOC.

I spottied- I read your comments – I delighted in dropbox – I put a Stones Mash-up in my other list – I ignored who suggested what. This is the best I could do.
Hope you Enjoy:

He we go with some saneshane Havoc picking.. the “Killerman Gold Posse” kick us off with a delightful number everyone seems to have fun with, French Frith Kaiser Thompson, a supergroup of sorts, joyfully chanting along in childlike happiness and Robin Hood philosophy.

On with some Uhh, sex and mayhem….”When you buried my head….In your child-baring hips…And you splintered my bones, ..And rattled my teeth” It’s more fun to listen to than read about… pretty much like the real thing…..I’m told.

”Triptych; Prayer/Peace/Protest” is introduced by Roach’s signature drum moves, an eerie operatic vocal of oppressed angst-emoting, a 5/4 beat from the percussionist and bizarrely written for interpretive dance – if that hasn’t put you off – you could have a listen to a most beautiful and frighteningly interesting pivotal work in the early-’60s African-American protest movement. Stunning.

Detailed, reflective songwriting in contemporary indie is more my thang and Shearwater put the Red Sea, Black Sea in a bottle – let it settle and then Shake it about vigorously – resulting in a large amount of alternative pop sprayed about my room.

Digital hardcore founders Atari Teenage Riot were an attack on the increasingly neo-nazi influenced German techno scene back in 1992 – this is -to a 90’s teenager – what Max Roach was to the 60’s… pick your generation granddad.

A chaos engine is a home computer that develops complex song structure while maintaining indie pop sensibilities and obviously works perfectly for Pinback (I may have made that up) lovely track.

Del-Vetts created dirty rock back when Garage was a million bands taking a bit of fuzz & trying to fry the world with it (thanks Fintan), the song gets picked more for the DIY ethic of its ‘let’s form a band and release a single’ creating musical nuggets havoc, than the splendidly retro rock. ACE.

The The cause mayhem by being impossible to find in a search engine. Armageddon Days was written during the 1980’s but is still poignant today as it’s geopolitical rants have continued to develop from the 80s through to the present time. Immense.

Tonite Is A Special Night is the perfect blend between Tricky’s trip-hop sound and the Gravediggaz horror-core style. Quite a coup for Tricky using Wu-Tang super-producer RZA at the height of his talent.

and I leave you with the Kaiser Chiefs perfecting their five year olds playground rhyming – it’s brilliant, grilliant and a little bit: not very sensible.

Never a Cross Word on the ‘Spill

This is from Chris!

Many of you do the Graun cryptic crossword, I believe, and so I’ve compiled one that has some connections with what goes on in this part of the blogosphere. I’ve used yesterday’s Graun grid (which can be found at this address: but created different clues, which I’ll post below.
I hope it will amuse, entertain and puzzle you. Some answers are very close to individual Spillers but I’ll leave you to discover which they are. This is my first attempt in decades but I rather enjoyed it so, if there is an audience, I may do it again (I have some clues ready…!). Please feed back any comments, groans and plaudits. I’ll supply the solution next year. Happy Holidays!
