More Than Zeros
A great numb feeling washes over me as I let go of the past and look forward to the future. Pretend to be a vampire. I don't really need to pretend, because it's who I am, an emotional vampire. I've just come to expect it. Vampires are real. That I was born this way. That I feed off of other people's real emotions. Search for this night's prey. Who will it be? Rock & Roll.

Good news kids! Home nightclub aka crackden, are getting rid of their electronic BS and installing a new live music night on Saturdays called "Rebel Rebel". I for one am excited about the prospect of hearing some great live acts at one of Sydney's premier venues on one of the best soundsystems. Both live acts and DJs will feature, with rumours circulating on acts for the first few months including The Kills, The Cloud Room, Longcut, Chicks on Speed, Crazy Penis and more. The kick-off will feature New York's Liars (singer is an Aussie), and Sweden's The Shout Out Louds.
Here's some of their stuff....
Liars - It Fit When I Was A Kid
Liars - The Wrong Coat For You, Mt. HeartAttack
Shout Out Louds - The Comeback
Rock 'n Roll Ain't Evil
I remember when I heard this track late night on rage one time, and thought I was hallucinating. I mean here is this awesomely dark garage-rock with simplistic and Iggy Pop-like lyrics, a very mature composition, and yet when I looked up, the singer performing said song couldn't have been more than 8 years old. Enter The Flairz. Currently showcasing at SXSW in Austin Texas, these guys are from Fremantle, WA, and are getting a bit of hype both home and abroad. Anyway, it's a pretty cool song, but obviously with an average age of 12, these guys getting on the good foot and doing the bad thing very early on. Will they stand the test of time? or are they the next Nikki Webster blowout? Fuck I hope not!

Love Of Diagrams
During last night's episode of The O.C. .... and before anyone makes a derogatory comment about me watching the show, admit it, everyone's doin it, and besides, i played with My Little Ponies afterward, so my cool-o-meter is back up to 110% .... Haters!!.......anyway i heard a familiar song that i couldn't place, and all of a sudden i remember today...magic/... The track i speak of is Love Of Diagram's "No Way Out". I was very shocked to hear it, however that wasn't my biggest surprise. These guys are Aussies, and from Melbourne no less! i had absolutely no idea, until today when i checked out their site here. They sound like an early lo-fi Le Tigre with sweet driving strokes-like beats, with darkish lyrics. Not unlike L.A.'s Midnight Movies, and The Blood Arm. Anyway, it's a great track, and i'll let you judge for yourself. So go on and pull a Ryan Brood face, or a Marissa hair flick, and fondle your Captain Oats.
Love Of Diagrams - No Way Out (played on The O.C. just before Johnny got smashed by the car, and tore his ACL - Boo Hoo!)
The Blood Arm - Do I Have Your Attention? (Trash-chic)
Midnight Movies - Persimmon Tree (Beautiful voice)

Like A Knight In Shining Armour!
Seriously though, Fuck this Hasselhoff guy... We should be resurrecting the guy above's career.
We were watching Karate Kid II on the weekend, and this guy with the dog is the shit, and he's theme song is also awesome. Peter Cetera is this guy - The original power ballad master. This song, which to me really set Peter's work apart from the average, has the perfect amount of electric guitar, keyboard, and grated cheese...
C'mon you all know this song, and its step above "The Final Countdown" hard to believe I know. However download this puppy (haha Geddit?), and crank it. Put on your kamikaze head band and show me your kung-fu chop!

Elefant's Magic Show
I came across New York's Elefant two years ago after hearing "Sunlight Makes Me Paranoid", a Bowie-esque dark brooder... a silent killer, with surely one of the greatest bass lines ever composed. Having picked up the album of the same name shortly after, i was very impressed by their sound led by Argentinean frontman Diego Garcia, which wears it's clear influences however seems to bring a new modern showmanship and machoness to the 80's Brit-rock sound, and never sounds derivative - The slick Garcia ensures this with his constantly womanising delivery, and punctuated drawl.
I'm pretty excited about their upcoming follow-up "The Black Magic Show", which is sure to be a success, and perhaps catapult them to mainstream success. Lolita is a track off the upcoming album:
Elefant - Lolita
& from their first:
Elefant - Now That I Miss Her
