I’m Not Too Keen on Mondays

Morning!

Call Cornershop whatever you like, but you can never accuse them of not being experimental.

Mention their name to most people, and their eyes will glaze over, as they recall their Fatboy remix of Brimful of Asha, chanting that “everyone needs a bosom for a pillow”.

Or maybe an earlier incarnation when, via their Lock Stock and Double Barrell EP, they urged their brethren to “Shut up shop/Get on the streets and fight!/The powers that be!”

I think it’s fairly safe to say, nobody expected them to release an album of easy-listening re-recordings of their 1994 album Hold On It Hurts.

But they did, and this is on it, and it’s chuffing great:

Cornershop – You Always Said My Language Would Get Me into Trouble (Version)

More soon.

Morning!

Getting out of bed is a rubbish idea, isn’t it? Dunno who thought of it, but they deserve to be hung upside down by their dangly bits.

Cue an entirely predictable song to assist:

R.E.M. – Get Up

I’m Not Too Keen on Mondays

Another album I picked up recently, was a compilation of tunes from which samples had been ripped to make…um..other tunes.

Entitled Sample This! The Foundation of Modern Classics it’s packed with great tracks, about half of which I’d never heard of before.

Including this morning’s tune, which put such a dumb smile on my face when I heard it, I figured it was just right for this series.

Apparently, so the sleeve notes tell me, this features in M/A/R/R/S’ ground-breaking sample-a-thon Pump Up The Volume, but I can’t say I’ve ever noticed it before. I’ll have to dig out my copy and give my memory a refresh.

George Kranz – Din Daa Daa

Sing a long everybody – and just in case you don’t know the words, here they are, in all their glory:

I’m Not Too Keen on Mondays

Sometimes you don’t need something upbeat or dancy or cheerful or happy to get you going on a Monday morning.

Sometimes you just need something fecking loud.

Here’s Motörhead:

Motörhead – Iron Fist

(Today’s picture is brought to you by World of Leather.)

More soon.

*Takes ear plugs out*

I said: More soon.

I’m Not Too Keen on Mondays

Pretty sure I won’t be the first in the blogging world to post this tune this month, and I imagine any radio DJ worth their salt will already have given it a spin, but hey, what the heck: it’s a stone cold classic and just what’s needed to get yo’ groove on of a Monday morning:

Earth Wind & Fire – September

More soon.
