I hope I’m together when I die

I had planned to add something slightly more current this week but alas I got side tracked by a question on Friday and have been stuck on this puppy ever since… The question – Whats ya two death songs….
This is one of mine, simply for the line “I Hope I’m Together When I Die”.
So here they are the Butthole Surfers, one of the great modern guitar bands with The Coloured FBI Guy from the Widowermaker EP (1989).

Next week I shall endeavour to find something from this decade.

Tremendously noise-intensive, rhythmically ritual anti-pop was offered as an antidote for the frightened, paralyzed and media-sedated masses.

BMP vs Motat

Anni the Catto Breaks Record!

As life is moving pretty slow thru here in winter
I feel this is worth sharing
Anni the Catto Breaks Record!
My evil Cat Anni, broke her long standing record last Sunday.
She managed to stay under the blankets and asleep till 4.36pm!!
The full time she was there is difficult to establish as we were still asleep when she initially came to bed in the early hours of the morning.
The old record was 415pm, this was on a work day thus making it extra worthy of note.
Also, it was my fault she was soo …
