Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue: January 2013

For the first blog post of the year, I thought it would be nice to ease into things with some tunes.

Something Old:

David Bowie: 'Five Years'
The opening track of the fantastic 1972 album "The rise and fall of Ziggy Stardust and the spiders from mars"

David Bowie: 'Five Years'




Something New:

Pulp- 'After You'
From the Triple J website comes this tasty info about the track:
"Pulp fans at a recent hometown gig in Sheffield, England, got a special treat from the band. They were handed Christmas Cards with a download code for "a little present" that turned out to be a brand new song.
According to the Pulp wiki, 'After You' was written and first demoed back in 2000. But the track released to fans on Christmas Eve was a new version produced over a few sessions, including one with James Murphy in London"

Pulp- 'After You'



Something else that is new and very cool. The Twerps b-side 'He's in Stock'. This comes from the 7 Inch 'Work it out', released in October on cool local indie label 'Chapter Music'. Triple J have this on their hit List!!!!  Yay for local indie music! This track reminds me of indie/alternative bands in the 80's like The Bats.

 The Twerps- 'He's in Stock'



Something Borrowed:

Blondie: "Hanging on the telephone"
A few weeks back I have the pleasure of seeing the Shambelles play and they dropped this tune in their set and did great! While Blondie are famous for this song (off their 1978 album 'Parallel Lines' , it is a cover and was originally done by The Nerves back in 1976 (two years before Blondie's version).

Something Blue:

I don't need to say much about this except:

Bob Dylan- 'It's all over now, Baby Blue' ( live in 1965).
