Car Song

I’m foregoing the rockabilly tonight. I just got in a while back having spent an hour and a half standing on the hard shoulder of the M60 with a VW Polo that went kaput while joining it from the M61. I was towed home eventually and now have the hassle and cost of trying to get it diagnosed or fixed tomorrow. Bollocks to it.

This song is from 1995 by thieving magpies and indie heart throbs Elastica, in which they make cars sound a whole lot sexier than watching them from behind the barrier on the M60 is. As for the video, I have no idea.

RVNG of the NRDS Mock and Toof ‘Digit 1’

From the RVNG of the NRDS series of remixes and re-edits this is London duo Mock and Toof getting to grips with post-punk heroes Wire, and their 1978 song Three Girl Rhumba. Not too dissimilar from the original but making the most of that killer riff that ‘inspired’ Justine Frischman in Elastica’s early days, and led to an out-of-court settlement. This re-edit is good stuff.
