Shoegazer Sunday: Winter’s “Crazy”

Sunday, October 4th, 2015

Winter’s “Crazy” (off their Supreme Blue Dream album) is sort of Shoegaze crossed with catchy bubblegum pop, and a vaguely disturbing video perfect for the Halloween season…

Living Door-Knocker Prank

It’s an ad, but it’s pretty amusing, and a nice way to kick off Halloween season:

“Remove yourself from my veranda!”

Shoegazer Sunday: Slowdive’s “I Believe”

Yep, another Slowdive rarity…

Shoegazer Sudnay: Mvnich’s “Magnicide”

Sunday, September 20th, 2015

I think Mvnich, despite having a name some render as “Munich,” hail from Spain. Other than that, I have very little information on them. Here’s “Magnicide.”

Shoegazer Sunday: Tuath’s “Ag dúnmharú an timpeallacht” Live

Sunday, September 6th, 2015

Though you can’t tell from the video description, this is Ireland’s Tuath performing “Ag dúnmharú an timpeallacht” live. It’s a straightforward guitar-drive instrumental piece. (I only know the name of the song by tracking down their bandcamp page for the album it came from.)

Library Addition: Kirk Hammett’s Too Much Horror Business

Monday, August 17th, 2015

Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett is one of the world’s premiere collectors of horror movie posters and memorabilia (toys, games, masks, etc.). After reading about the Hammett collection in Heritage Auction’s Intelligent Collector magazine, I’d been interested in the book documenting it, so I picked one up from the Cold Tonnage 40% off sale.

Hammett, Kirk. Too Much Horror Business. Abrams, 2012. First edition oversized hardback, a Fine- copy with wear at points, sans dust jacket, as issued. (Note: The wear on the front cover lettering is faux-wear, as you can tell from the same faux-wear on the title and half-title page.) Hammett has a truly amazing poster collection, possibly on par with that of Robert V. Borst (documented in Graven Images), whose range of collection included more science fiction and fantasy than Hammett. Bought for £12 marked down from £20.



Here’s a video on the book and Hammett’s collection:

For your Sunday dose of Shoegaze, here’s “Windstorm,” a nice song from earlier in School of Seven Bells’ career.

Tianjin, China Blows Up Real Good

Thursday, August 13th, 2015

In case you missed the video, a fuel depot in Tianjin, a port city in northern China at about the same latitude of Pyongyang, blew up Real Good yesterday:

And now I pretty much have to see Deadpool

Shoegazer Sunday: The Kritzler’s “Scarlet Sometimes”

Sunday, August 2nd, 2015

A pleasant Shoegazey song set to someone’s video of their vacation in Japan. It’s actually pretty cool.

At some point The Kritzlers apparently became Cochlear Kill.
