Possibly worth a watch to remind ourselves of how life shouldn't be.

I used to love it as a kid, at that point I didn't know how much of a bigot Jim Davidson is.

Quite a funny thread on them: http://www.hijackbristol.co.uk/board/the-forum/kosheen-lol/

wobble monger


This is gold.

Kosheen were originally touted as a live drum & bass band - two of the members were producers of nondescript techstep set-filler before starting Kosheen as a way of making money out of fuckwits. Their single 'Hide U' was a crossover hit and also caned by Grooverider around the time he got a show on Radio 1 and stopped championing interesting music. It's without merit but remains by far the best thing they've ever done. They played their first gig at Ashton Court festival during which they displayed their true colours as a band who would play literally any style of music as long as their agent thought it might get signed up to appear on an advert. Their singer is one of those unpleasantly driven self-styled hippies who seem to be drawn from all corners of the globe to Bristol and the West Country. She is renowned in Bristol for turning up at free jam sessions and taking them over with her poweful yet charmless foghorn of a voice. They were personally responsible for killing Bambi's mother and all the little rabbits in Watership Down. They name their albums after endangered native populations in order to sell more records to people with confused consciences and no taste in music. They borrow elements from seemingly random styles of music (eg. "heavy" guitars, trancey acid lines, soppy breakbeats) in the most knuckleheaded and obvious way possible, using them to window dress the terrifying creative vacuum at the heart of their work. They were big around the time we started Choke and provided a suitable, if somewhat arbitrary, target for our ire at the way fashionable musical forms and other cultural signifiers are co-opted as Pavlovian buying triggers for dehumanised lifestyle whores.

I was looking up Massive Attack  Pimp, and then browsed Tricky, Portishead etc..., well, just Tricky and Portishead actually.

And then I seemed to remember another band in a similar vein, possibly from Bristol or Wales and not Catatonia who had at least one reasonably successful tune back in around 2006.

I am sure they played at Attic Bar fairly soon after it re-opened in around 2006-2007. I think I remember walking past it thinking it would be good to have gone.

It might have been a band that could operate with a DJ set-set-up. Possibly with a female singer.

Any ideas?
