It's like oompah-techno music. When's the album coming out, you magnificent bastard?

...wait, is that vacuumslayer's ACTUAL VOICE? ewwww.....

Substance McGravitas said...

VS is the gurl voice, FYI.

Substance McGravitas said...

You know, the one not talking about God and stuff.

wow, that's kind of harsh.

vacuumslayer said...

I win!

vacuumslayer said...

And zrm is banned.

w/v is hangstu.

Yikes. What did Stu do?

He's a butthole.

Substance McGravitas said...

Bouffant deserves some of the credit for this in a way because he keeps linking to those fucking dub videos, and somewhere he talked about how with tolerable bass and a beat pretty much any noise can go over the top...and I think that nails a whole bunch of music I like.

Brilliant vid and music!!! Is that Ethel Merman?

"Amen" is killer. Soon I'll be able to say, I heard you when... utoob hits were still under a hundred. Got to get this one more air time. You rock!

Substance McGravitas said...

Ethel started here. Unfortunately YouTube seems to demand some pictures to go along with the music, so she got recycled because she was handy.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

so she got recycled because she was handy.

Ethel Merman is a zombie? Who authorized that?

Substance McGravitas said...

People with lightning-prone buildings need no authorization.

Big Bad Bald Bastard said...

I remember the original mucus tape.

Praise the mucus!

vacuumslayer said...

Can you give me an example? Besides my awesome mucus song, I mean. :D

BTW, thanks for the chuckle. I was grinning from ear to ear while I was listening to it. Pookietronic was on my lap--we were both enjoying.

Ah, here's the Bouffant quote, and obviously he means something that's really screechy, but...
I'd put this in the ballpark...
That got ripped off by these guys...
And then there's this...
Which was an attempt at this stuff...
This counts despite some variance...
And I wore a copy of this down which was like a bunch of other industrial abominations...but now that I hear it again is not very bassy...

And then Public Enemy songs back when they were a noise band and similar things...

M. Bouffant said...

C'mon, if you dismiss the Plastic Ono Band album as 'screechy" you're not human/alive/something ... it expresses more agony than virtually anything else, ever, and causes it as well. Wailing rules.

(Worked great for bum-rushing people from the dorm room when a co-ed & I wanted to be alone, also. Philistines!)

I have the VS moko recording because WMP or something downloaded it when I listened to it, & then Spotify appropriated it as well. Machines. HELP!!

he keeps linking to those fucking dub videos

Watch it, or else!! Oh, what the hell, I'm cranky enough.

WV claims there's arift somewhere. As indicated by your damn looping those things. We're stuck. Forever!

Substance McGravitas said...

I listened to it all morning, actually...that's what the looping is for. It was good working music.

Wow, I loved the Public Image, Poptones - took a listen to a Red Hot Chili Peppers cover of that which was nice. It was an attempt at dub?

Now how about a different take on a classic: http://youtu.be/aXJXe7MMMtI which sort of ties it all together!

Substance McGravitas said...

I think the PiL is a dub attempt, but they smoked a lotta dope and maybe they were listening to some krauts too. Wobble and Lydon were enthusiasts.

There are some funny liner notes in which Wayne from The Flaming Lips explains that the Lips believed they were a metal band for a few albums, but he's kind of flaky and could be lying anyway.

This is objectively true.

Check out G. Corp if haven't already.

Ya know, I actually got a really good idea of what you meant from that selection.

Did...some..one...put...acid in my coffee?

I be trippin', mon.

vacuumslayer said...

ok, w/v was just "reverse." Which--I think--means you could probably play some of those songs in reverse and they would sound equally as good as they do goin' forward.

Substance McGravitas said...

Quicktime lets you loop things backwards and forwards, so I can tell you with authority that no, your duet with J. Vernon sounds like shit backwards.

Fishing for compliments about how it sounds forwards.

vacuumslayer said...

LOL!

LOL...also as good backwards as it is forward.

Substance McGravitas said...

God damn it, I put you on the beat and everything!

vacuumslayer said...

Actually I love *my* song. I was poking gentle fun at the other songs...and I didn't even dislike a couple of 'em.

Substance McGravitas said...

Faux outrage is the most convenient outrage, especially at the returns counter.

Thanks!
