TOP TEN 2009

Hi, we are at ATP at Butlins Resort Compound, Minehead, Uk. We are having tons of fun. It's almost 10pm and I still have time to have a 3 hours nap before our set. So far we have:
-Watched the xvid release of 2012 (they are about to crash into Mt Everest
-Been shit talked by Sonic Youth
-Recorded a demo at the studio here
-Watched Man City beat Chelsea
-Not been shit talked by the Buzzcocks
-Bowled
-Played Laser tag
-slept (after 2 weeks of not sleeping)
-Ate chips and beans

Anyhow, I figure this is the best time to list our collective, as a band, agreed upon by all members, definitive, not changing, democratic, multilateral, all encompassing 2009 Top Ten list. Oh yeah this is going on Pitchfork next week so please don't read it until then thanks.


1) Katie Stelmanis "Believe Me"
Amazing Harry Potter influenced Italian opera singer.




2) Paul Keeley "Life Aquatic"
Awesome cheesy house from Montreal on the safe side of Trance. Amazing video too. The payoff at 4.04 is probably the most important moment in music since things started to get all crazy in "Light my Fire".



3) Radioslave - Fabriclive
A whole record of basically one pretty sparse beat, with things happening over top periodically. The musical equivalent of molecules, with some added salt, my favourite. Another essential video too.



4) Deadmau5 - Lack of a Better Name
Where else other than Niagara Falls Canada would the worlds biggest DJ, known mostly for having a number in his name ("dead mau five?") and shit talking DJs. This record is one long 45 minute mashup of styles. Way more influential on Fucked Up than NOFX, as previously reported. Me and Josh saw him in Austin last month and mostly watch this poor kid high on meth wearing his pyjamas to the show slowly over the course of 35 minutes have his date (also super high, and wearing home made mouse ears) sway away from him and into the clutches of some random guy that happened to be standing behind her. I've never seen more jocks be happier to see a thin dude wearing a giant mouse hat in my life.



5) Michael Cassette "Shadows Movement"
This is probably not even from this year but I don't care. I heard this on the radio in Chicago at 2am and since it was like 3 hour long mix without titles, the only reason I know about this dude is because of SHAZAM.



6) The Horrors "See Within a Sea"
I will be honest and say I didn't like this band originally because Damian liked them. But then they were on an episode of The Mighty Boosh (a show I like because Damian doesn't, and vice versa) where they played a band called "The Black Tubes"...I'm just gonna pause here to note that John Cusack has had his breath held underwater for like the 4 minutes so far it's taken me to write this post (I started here, in the middle)...where they all got killed by a talking crab, so now I like them. We played a secret show with them in Toronto which we never do, and I just watched them for like 6 minutes at ATP, which I never do, so there you go. This song is a great outro to an album that I haven't really paid attention to other than this song, and mostly the part at the end anyhow. Maybe next week I'll post "Top Ten Parts of Songs in 2009). This is also probably the only thing anyone reading this is actually gonna be remotely interested in.



7) Fever Ray "When I Grow Up"
Real close to the top of my "Songs on my itunes that I will never tell you about" top ten list. Fleet Foxes are right up there too. I mostly like this because she talks about plants and putting cucumbers on her eyes. Just kidding, I like this because I have the lamest taste in music ever.




8) Jaytech "Sundance"
Hey wow, a techno song on Youtube thats actually a video and not just some trancy bullshit visual of the planet or sunrays or good vibes or changing seasons or the rainforest. Or some fat guy putting the needle on his 12" and filming it. Nothing says dance culture to me like giraffes eating leaves in the forest.




9) John Maus "Rights for Gays"
One of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard in my life. I honestly found out about this band from my bro Steve Kado when we were driving from Pomona to LA one night trying to see who had the "gayest" song on their ipod. He played this, and it was a pretty good move, but then I check-mated him (no homo) with "Castro Boy" by Danny Boy and the Serious Party Gods, which should explain to you why I won right there.



10) Youtube "Women Bloopers"
THE best video on the internet.



BONUS CATEGORIES:
Highest youtube video to writing ratio on a Band blog

Most amount of V's in a band name;
Threeway tie between Wavves/Navvy/Lovvers

Can I simply say what a relief to uncover a person that really understands what they're discussing online. You definitely understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More and more people really need to read this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised you aren't more popular since you most certainly have the
gift.
