RT @Cuff_S: @stilgherrian it’s a long way to the shops if you want a sausage roll [Same thing.]

It’s a long way to the top if you want to rock’n’roll.

via Janetter for Mac

AC/DC’s “Jail lBreak” youtube.com/watch?v=S5xnc1… So where do we go from here?

Wow. You kids like Underworld.

via Janetter for Mac

Underworld’s “Underneath the Radar” youtube.com/watch?v=9w-n0G…

via Janetter for Mac

@semibogan Yeah we’ll to that next. It works well.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to semibogan

Supernaut’s “I Like it Both Ways” youtube.com/watch?v=-nKc4N…

via Janetter for Mac

@semibogan I grant you, that’s a fair pathway, and I’ll try to come back to it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to semibogan

John Paul Young’s “Love Is In The Air” youtube.com/watch?v=wPMa5y…

via Janetter for Mac

@19bk69 Oh, yes, but no. Or maybe. Stand by.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to 19bk69

@damomurf I see where you’re going there, and I approve, but I have taken a different path.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to damomurf

You’re too slow. Orbital’s “Chime”. youtube.com/watch?v=HXU5Rx…

via Janetter for Mac

OK, what song next, people?

via Janetter for Mac

The KLF’s “America What Time is Love” youtube.com/watch?v=3dGj9h…

via Janetter for Mac

Anyway, Real Life’s “Send Me An Angel” youtube.com/watch?v=0R6WIb…

via Janetter for Mac

And they were so rootable.

via Janetter for Mac

@NewtonMark I LIKE WHERE YOU’RE GOING WITH THIS.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

“Funky town (Extended)” by Pseudo Echo. Oh you know you love it. youtube.com/watch?v=XhhO5J…

via Janetter for Mac

So, you know how earlier I was worried about going down a rabbit hole? Well, I’m about to go down a different rabbit hole. Stay strong.

via Janetter for Mac

So now we’re going with Duran Duran’s “Union Of The Snake”, because I hate you. youtube.com/watch?v=n6p5Q6…

via Janetter for Mac

@19bk69 Yeah they sorted that I think because Bowie didn’t want to look like a cunt.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to 19bk69

@traceyb65 “As,” as you say, “you do.”

via Janetter for Mac in reply to traceyb65

RT @Gliburtine: @stilgherrian I love this tragedy of a song [And that, Sir, sums up everything.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Gliburtine

Um, next up, Ultravox with “Vienna”. youtube.com/watch?v=dH89u_… Where am I going here?

via Janetter for Mac

I didn’t actually get any food while Kraftwerk was on. I just opened another bottle of wine.

via Janetter for Mac

Astronaut Chris Hadfield’s cover of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity”. Again, because obviously. youtube.com/watch?v=poZCIN…

via Janetter for Mac

David Bowie’s “Heroes”, because obviously. youtube.com/watch?v=Tgcc5V…

via Janetter for Mac

@glengyron Apparently they sell these things called “tickets” to these gigs. Who knew?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to glengyron

@glengyron I had an advantage, namely a walkie-talkine on the security team’s channel.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to glengyron

Brian Eno’s “Baby’s on Fire” youtube.com/watch?v=nItuhu…

via Janetter for Mac

God, I remember trying to sort getting a truck full of audio gear thru security at The Big Day Out just before The Sugarcubes where playing.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @glengyron: @stilgherrian sugarcubes. [Yeah I should’ve gone Sugarcubes at that point. I’ll go there next.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to glengyron

RT @jasonjordan: @stilgherrian Bucks Fizz [You’re a fucking maniac.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jasonjordan

Sleater-Kinney’s “Modern Girl” youtube.com/watch?v=qOM107… HT @acidic

via Janetter for Mac

Hurry up, it’s like a three-minute track.

via Janetter for Mac

OK, folks. Veruca Salt to The Breeders to… where?

via Janetter for Mac

The Breeders’ “Cannonball”, which is kinda obvious at this point but still a great song. youtube.com/watch?v=dM1gFS…

via Janetter for Mac

RT @9NewsSyd: JUST IN: Train carrying 200 passengers is currently stuck in a tunnel near St James station. [Good. Make them suffer.]

Hah! Vanilla Ice’s “Ice Ice Baby” [Smirks.] youtube.com/watch?v=rog8ou…

via Janetter for Mac

And now, Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” youtube.com/watch?v=z5rRZd…

via Janetter for Mac

As I said earlier, “Fuck off, Platypus.”

via Janetter for Mac

And now, because @AndrewPStreet is lifting me out of the rabbit hole, Swervedriver’s “Son Of Mustang Ford” youtube.com/watch?v=MHva52…

via Janetter for Mac

Listening back to that, can I just say that those four tracks constituted a damn fine EP? I mean, even if I say so myself. We chose well.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @AndrewPStreet: @stilgherrian the answer is never not Swervedriver. [See, this is why I love you.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AndrewPStreet

“Time Squared” by Quantization. Written and produced by Mat Farrington. youtube.com/watch?v=xlBVJc…

via Janetter for Mac

The other thing I love about that Aquila track is the dud note caused by a MIDI copy-paste error that no-one noticed until it hit vinyl.

via Janetter for Mac

When we did the second Time to Act concert in Adelaide’s Rymill Park, that Aquila track was played live as the sun set. Evil. Just evil.

via Janetter for Mac

“Apollo” by Aquila. Written and produced by Matt Thomas. youtube.com/watch?v=yuvBzx… (My personal favourite from the EP.)

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus I think I must organise my American tour for 2015.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: I think my favourite part of Washington DC was Arlington National Cemetery. [Not. At. All. Creepy.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

“Forge” by Maas Unconscious. Written, produced and arranged by Michael Gordon and Nyk Holt. youtube.com/watch?v=RkBun6…

via Janetter for Mac

@michaelneale No, this is me at my dining room table just now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to michaelneale

“We are the Future” by DAMC & DJ Brendon. Written, produced and arranged by David McCann and Brendon Moyle. youtube.com/watch?v=QJ9n2F…

via Janetter for Mac

Right, the next four tunes that I’m tweeting are from “The Core EP”. I was the executive producer of said record in 1993.

via Janetter for Mac

@Wolfie_Rankin I was just thinking something along those lines…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Wolfie_Rankin

@ivovic Nah, that’s just the fucking Germans.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ivovic

I am in the middle of a massive electrical storm here, @BernardKeane.

via Janetter for Mac

And may the “person” who stole my original vinyl of Kraftwerk’s “Autobahn” die a painful death.

via Janetter for Mac

The trick is to click on the next link as it comes up, and pause it on your browser until the previous tune ends, and play DJ yourself.

via Janetter for Mac

I should mention that I’m listening to the music I’m tweeting in real time, so feel free to listen to the same tracks as I am.

via Janetter for Mac

@RealNickHodge That’s the one! That was a fun evening. I just realised I can pull the playlist put of my Twitter archive, given the date.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to RealNickHodge

Fuck off, Platypus.

via Janetter for Mac

Hey @RealNickHodge, remember when we did this tweet-YouTube-tracks DJ thing from a moving car driving back from… where was it?

via Janetter for Mac

I’m thoroughly amused to see who’s favouriting which of the music tracks I’m tweeting. As is the NSA.

via Janetter for Mac

And, because I need time to fix some food, Kraftwerk’s “Autobahn”. youtube.com/watch?v=x-G28i…

via Janetter for Mac

RT @skwashd: I’ll have 2 of whatever DJ @stilgherrian is on tonight. He’s playing some bang’n tracks! [You are most kind.]

Robert Fripp’s “Exposure”. You’re welcome. youtube.com/watch?v=hzFsDQ…

via Janetter for Mac

On where I am going from here will work so well. You youngfolk are so fucked.

via Janetter for Mac

I think I have just fallen in love with @PitcherJenna for about the fifteenth time.

via Janetter for Mac

@PitcherJenna We must also talk soon. Talk and drink. Bu mostly talk. And drink.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PitcherJenna

Eon’s “Spice”. Because @PitcherJenna is a fucking genius. youtube.com/watch?v=5lgQp3…

via Janetter for Mac

@SusinNaomi Thank you. As I said before, this is all from the playlist of a Triple J program I co-hosted back then. And subsequent sins.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SusinNaomi

I should probably drag in @AndrewPStreet to rescue me from my 1991 club playlist and take me to the highlands of 1993.

via Janetter for Mac

OK, to get where I want to end up soon, I need to go via here. The KLF’s “What Time is Love?” youtube.com/watch?v=OjL5uC…

via Janetter for Mac

Ah, what I could do with a subway tunnelling machine and three kilograms of meth…

via Janetter for Mac

@R_Chirgwin You are so not going to be my date to the Triple J 40th Birthday Reunion Party.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

N-Trance’s “Set You Free” youtube.com/watch?v=18W9WY… But where to after this? Up, down, or sideways.

via Janetter for Mac

@R_Chirgwin I have yet to begin. This stuff is all from the playlist for the Triple J program I co-presented in 1990.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

@zerogeewhiz @SnarkyPlatypus @glengyron It’s all about the proximity to Stanford and US defence dollars. It’s history.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to zerogeewhiz

@zerogeewhiz @SnarkyPlatypus Ain’t it just. I’ve been quite a few times. Still, I find the place fascinating. Well, as I do any place.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to zerogeewhiz

Hah! Usura’s “Open Your Mind”. youtube.com/watch?v=7sPUpK… This is not a rabbit hole. Yet.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus @zerogeewhiz Yeah this is the fascinating question for ,e. So much money and potential power, but the place is a shit-hole.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@zerogeewhiz @SnarkyPlatypus Ah. I’ve been spending most of a week in San Jose each May for NetSuite’s SuiteWorld etc.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to zerogeewhiz

Now here’s an interesting turn. Inner City’s “Good Life”. [Smirks.] youtube.com/watch?v=998P6H…

via Janetter for Mac

@zerogeewhiz @SnarkyPlatypus Or you catch the Caltrain from the depot on 4th and KIng Streets in San Francisco.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to zerogeewhiz

@glengyron It’s a strange Full Moon tonight, I suspect. The ley lines re-align after the Americans drove the golden spike into the metaphor.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to glengyron

@Leroy_Lynch @Gliburtine @SatPaper I’m not sure that’s a “hole” so much as just a different article. But I agree the issue needs a look-see.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Leroy_Lynch

YouTube suggests that 808 State’s “Pacific State” is the next track. I am not inclined to disagree. youtube.com/watch?v=6jQ_bO…

via Janetter for Mac

I supposed I’d better check to see if any dinocineration is needed this evening.

via Janetter for Mac

@pinnarod Yeah, the AU wine glut continues. Not that I’m complaining, but producers are. Agree re the GSM.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to pinnarod

I guess the next one has to be LFO’s “LFO”, right? youtube.com/watch?v=HROMVI…

via Janetter for Mac

@pinnarod I can ask around, if you’re particularly interested in new grenache. It can be kinda light and insipid sometimes though.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to pinnarod

@pinnarod I don’t know how much granache is being planted in AU at the moment. It’s certainly not very fashionable.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to pinnarod

Kate Holden’s “Malcolm Turnbull’s loyal remaking” in @SatPaper is rather good. thesaturdaypaper.com.au/opinion/topic/…

via Janetter for Mac

Oh FFS, @R_Chirgwin, here is a dead horse. Please flog it.
