I’m glad this came up, Spirit of the West are my favourite band and any weekend started with them can’t be bad, no matter how much pain my back is in. “Tell Me What I Think” off their ‘Two Headed’ album is an ode to the dying art of independent thought. It also has a reference to Guinness, which I really wish I had some of right now.
The video itself is a quirky but cool artsy performance piece. It was choreographed around a fixed point camera and filmed in one shot with no edits. I’m glad I found it, the video has been difficult to come by, even in the age of the youtubes.

Recently I’ve started a generally useless but fun tradition of sorts on Friday afternoon. I hit shuffle on my iPod as I leave work for the day, and the first song to come up I make my theme song for the weekend. Some of the choices have been nonsensical, other times like this week and a month back when the choice was Cypress Hill’s “Insane in the Brain” the selection has been full of Win and Awesome. I’ve decided to start sharing these, seeing as that I have this blog and all to do such with.
This week’s track is “Kill the Lights” by one of my favourite bands The Birthday Massacre (official site). It’s the killer opening track off their album “Walking With Strangers”:
