10 Nov 2009, 18:20 by amodelofcontrolAs explained earlier, here's the second half of the first part of my rundown of 90s songs.
Previously: My top 100 tracks 1990-99 Pt.01a: 200 to 181
The Ideal Crash
An impossibly sad song, a slow, minimalist track that lyrically deals with a man confessing to the titular character his crime. dEUS have never come close to the naked emotions of this track since, or to that matter before it, either, and it's such an affecting track that I can only listen to this once in a while.
The Dandy Warhols
Every Day Should Be A Holiday
...The Dandy Warhols Come Down
Way back before they were soundtracking Vodafone adverts, this band of American slackers were writing wonderful summer pop songs like this, psychedelic electro-pop that hooked me from the first moment I heard it (and I ended up buying the album on import months before it was eventually released over here).
They Might Be Giants
Birdhouse in Your Soul
6 Nov 2007, 01:30 by imnotthatstupidName your top 10 most played bands on Last.fm:

XO, the one with the most songs I love.

"I never thought you'd be a junky because heroin is so passeeeeeeeeeeeee"

-- what is your favourite song by 7?
Not original but it's "Under the Bridge"
-- what is a good memory you have considering the music of 10?

Can't say that Chokebore is joyful music anyway but I would say "You are the Sunshine of my Life"

29 May 2007, 18:48 by amodelofcontrolMy prelidiction for music lists at the moment may be coming across all a bit High Fidelity, but it is in the main me rummaging through the boxes of musical history in my mind - that and I am finding it quite a lot of fun hunting through the archives of YouTube. In addition, of course, it is far easier being able to let you hear/see what I am talking about - I would rather not post mp3s here, and with Youtube being as good as it is for this nowadays, I don't have to.
So what is this week's list of ten? A slightly woolly one, really - ten North American alternative bands from the nineties. Criteria? There isn't really one, suffice to say that most of these bands would probably have appeared on what is now MTV2 at some point or another (indeed, I don't doubt in the slightest that some of them have). Some of the songs mentioned may be from more recent times, but the reasons I love the bands come from the decade in question...
First up, then, are two bands that I still listen a lot even now. …

20 Sep 2005, 20:48 by andrew_j_wTwo years after 2003's Welcome to the Monkey House The Dandy Warhols return with their new album, Odditorium Or Warlords Of Mars. Monkey House was criticized by some quarters of the Dandy's fan base for being too 'clean' and produced. The critics however lauded them for their ability to reinvent themselves. How does Odditorium compare then? Well after only the second track it is clear that they're harking back to the early days of 'Dandys Rule, OK?' and '...The Dandy Warhols Come Down'. Courtney Taylor-Taylor's laid back vocals are draped over fuzzed up guitars and keyboards that spin and circle the listener and draws them in the some truly epic tunes.
Beginning with a brief history lesson from American TV legend Bill Kurtis on how the Dandy Warhols created Rock And Roll and were copied by various artists, including Elvis Presley, the album then launches into “Love Is The New Feel Awful” a 9 and half minute classic Dandy's song that sits right up there with their best work. …
