caledonia uber ellis – if you feel excited throw your hands into the air

February 25, 2017 Caledonia Uber Ellis Comments Off on caledonia uber ellis – if you feel excited throw your hands into the air

February’s edition and no sign of Mark E Smith after all, at least not during this the twentieth show.    There’s also just the faintest trace of Paris au Printemps which I’d planned instead of what’s here now.  If you are tuning in , and I doubt you are, it’s not for two hours of French pop songs.  There is however some pop, some post-punk and a bit of electronica amongst the odd bedfellows here.  (If you’d prefer two hours of the Fall or chansons from across the channel click on the links above to open the appropriate Spotify playlist).

Tracklist

  • 9 in the year 2525 by ian brown
  • 10 time is my everything – unkle reconstruction by ian brown
  • 11 third day of a seven day binge by marilyn manson
  • 12 physical (you’re so) by nine inch nails
  • 13 she’s lost control – trentmoller edit by the raveonettes
  • 14 good to be king by janitors
