Melodic Randomiser: Day one…

Hello there, welcome to the first post to feature the day’s “live” music selection, picked from my randomly arranged CD collection as I write, and shared here for your interest and perusal. 
I shall take the next disc in line from my well-stocked shelves, at no particular time each day, and play you a track or two as I listen, then we’ll see what kind of mixtape we can make together by the time the new year hangovers kick in.

Today’s first offering is one of the many albums I’ve bought in charity shops over the years, an Uncut magazine best-of-the-month compilation from 2000 featuring such diverse acts as Joseph Arthur, Amon Tobin (with Chris Morris) and Embrace. But the tracks that stand out for me are this slice of perfect, joyous pop music, XTC‘s Stupidly Happy

…and the sorely-missed tones of the late Kirsty MacColl with the stalker role-reversal tale of Treachery

And if that isn’t quite eclectic enough for you, here’s the next one in line, an electronica/glitchcore album called FZV: PRECEDENT, so I’m assuming it’s by FZV.

Anyway, it’s on Ai records and this track is Metaphrastic

Enjoy.
See you tomorrow for more of the same different.

Tina takes the fifth…

Hello there, welcome to day five of putting all sorts of stuff into a completely different linear sequence to previously.
In other words, a New Order.

No?
Just me then.

Ok, here we go again.
Yesterday, my fourth instalment in this festive farrago of fabricated flowcharts ended with New Order and their Lost Sirens album.

New Order are from Manchester, as are Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.
Another famous Gallagher from Manchester is Frank Gallagher from Shameless, which came to an end this year.
Earlier series of Shameless also featured a character called Kevin, played by Dean Lennox Kelly, who co-stars in Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel
… a film that stars Chris O’Dowd who was in The IT Crowd, which also came to an end this year.
The IT Crowd first series included cameos from comedy terrorist Chris Morris, who created near-the-knuckle satirical offense-fest Brass Eye
…co-created with Armando Iannucci, whose toe-curlingly crass creation, Alan Partridge from The Day Today went on to star in his own series.

Bringing us to another movie highlight of the year, Alan Partridge – Alpha Papa.

Don’t forget to check out all the links in these posts. They are packed full of music videos, films, whole episodes of classic TV shows, entire albums and live performances, tailor-made to get you through the televisual dross that passes for entertainment over the festive season.
So bookmark yourself some virtual chunks of holiday cheer, compliments of Diary of an Internet Nobody.

Don’t touch that dial…
