Dance Dance

Maybe it's because it's spring and it's sunny as hell outside, or maybe it's because my new tap dance classes start tonight and I can't wait to tap and stomp my feet, or maybe it's because I finally conquered burnout (for now) and for the first time in months I have evenings and weekends free or work and stress again, but I feel AWESOME!




And when I feel awesome, I feel like dancing. Last weekend me and some incredibly wonderful people dj'd 90s hits for our bff and zinester/artists extraordinaire Seleena at her birthday party in Manchester. We played all our favourite songs from our teenage years. Lots of Kenickie, bis, Lung Leg, Jack Off Jill, Urusei Yatsura, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, and other hits and it was the best. On the coach back home I wondered whether I was truly stuck in the past as all my favourite bands truly are from the 90s, and maybe I was becoming one of those oldies unable to listen to new bands. Well if my favourite new bands didn't keep breaking up and leaving me high and dry I wouldn't be in this conundrum (MCR and Dananananaykroyd, I'm looking at you).

So to prove myself wrong here's my bedroom dancing playlist of mostly new music i.e. music that has been made since 1996!

No Ditching


Obsessed with this band doesn't even cover it. They've got a Gilmore Girls song!


Martha


I want the album and I want it now

Aye Nako


Apparently they do an awesome cover of Enter Sandman


Tacocat


I only just realised Tacocat is a palindrome


The Tuts


Makes me DANCE


White Lung

They are playing the same day as The Julie Ruin this month and I'm genuinely considering going to see White Lung instead. 


Lipstick Homicide



As usual I'm listening to this band cuz my Dad knows more about grrrl punk pop than I do


Dananananaykroyd


I'm still not over this band. Never will be.
