... and YESSS .... he's back!!!

Hello dearest friends,

ages (!!) since my last post, I know, and no, I won't apologise for it, because I wasn't tanning my cute little ass in the Caribbean sun for the last months: in fact Little Loser stole all my time recently and I suppose that's the way it should be when there is a baby in the house. But I have bragged about this 'situation' on and on here and elsewhere, so the only thing I want to make clear is that I don't want to complain about my life: no, the opposite is true, friends, in fact it is true every second I see the little man! But enough of that ... let's have some music, shall we?

First up a record I fell in love with as soon as I first heard it back in 1999 on John Peel. Not the stuff I would usually listen to perhaps (I mean, it somehow sounds like Fantastic Plastic Machine playing a song based on a Hawaiian version of the 'E-I-E-I-O' at the end of "Old McDonald's Farm", with a touch of Trio's 'Da Da Da') ... but, most importantly, it works!!

A 7" on Motorway Records from Japan and after searching for it for 11 years, I finally got my hands on it last week for a fair price indeed. And because I love you all up to no degree, I want to share it with you, so here it is:

I have no information whatsoever about this band, to be honest. The fact that the record was issued on a Japanese lable might mean Princess Kaiulani are a Japanese act, but then again this might mean anything and they hail from the depths of Antarctica, who bloody knows?!

PLEASE let me know what you think of it: this is one of those records which only I seem to adore. Or did it meet with the approval of some of you as well?

Next up something I discovered very late last year, so late in the year in fact that it was too late to include it into my list of submissions for the CONTRAST PODCAST FESTIVE 50 (*). Had I found it earlier, I swear it would have been my contender for the number one, that's for sure! A duo, again I have no idea where they come from, she is called Juju, he is called Nez - although I suspect those are not the names they have been christened ... that's unless they come from the USA, of course - and that's all we need to know, right?

The video is a real treat, so you should have a look at it on youtube or elsewhere: I mean, let's face it, we all love beautifully young skinny chicks freaking out, don't we, and Juju is/does exactly that in the video. The record is available on Custard Records and well worth tracking down - here -, I would think!!

* all three parts of the aforementioned Festive Fifty, as well as other episodes of the Contrast Podcast, can be downloaded here, here and here.

As you might have gathered from previous posts on Sexyloser, I do like to listen to some of the good old-fashioned noisy stuff from time to time, therefore - without any other reason at all apart from the fact that I haven't listened to those myself for quite some time - here come:

-1- can be found on 'The No Future Years ' - double CD from 2000 on Anagram Records (although originally issued on an EP back in 1981), -2- on the 'Out Of Control' - 7" from 1985 on Citadel Records, -3- on the 'Dead Man' - CD - single on Fallout Recordings from 2006, -4- on 'Plays The Hits Of The 90's', a Mini-LP on Triple X Records from 1991, -5- on 'Kickstarting A Backfiring Nation', an album on FREUD Records, 1986, the tune was originally done by The Members, of course.

All of the above - basically all of the below in previous posts as well - is up for sale now on my discogs - site for reasonable prices, i would like to think. So if you are interested in a specific tune and want to get hold of the actual original record/CD the tune you liked is on, just pop over at discogs and have a look there at my seller site:

Perhaps I should add that all the money I make out of selling my record collection goes straight to Little Loser's steadily growing collection of nappies/clothing/toys/etc. .... so there you are: "charity" it is basically, in one form or another ...

See you soon, my beauties!
