Cocoanut Groove - The End of the Summer on Bookbinder Road



I think that we have a scandinavian invasion in our days, and i am not refering to ikea... I found more and more groups in my personal collection located in those cold countries, specially from sweden. And it seems that the years of sovereignty of abba (and ace of base of course as well) are gone for sure... Hey, there are many weirdos out there to be discovered... Look at this guy... His name is Olov Antonsson. It sounds like he is a football player... But he is writing cool songs!

Unkle - Rabbit in your headlight


Unkle is a British musical outfit founded in 1994 by school friends James Lavelle and Tim Goldsworthy. Originally categorized as trip-hop, the group once included producer DJ Shadow and has employed a variety of guest artists and producers. Names from Ian Brown(Stone Roses and solo career), Thom Yorke(Radiohead and solo) to Richard Ashcroft (The Verve and solo)  Ian Astbury(The cult and of course solo career ).







The following video is the track Rabbit in your headlight from the first album of UNKLE   Psyence Fiction recorded in 1998. The story of the clip is simple a man who walked into a channel along the traffic. Someone can find many symbolisms in this video. As a friend of mine said for me this video represent the man's journey through life. He's constantly being hurt and ignored. When he finally stops going along with the traffic, he breaks free from the tyranny of the majority, and he smiles for the first time. 





Of course this song stands out for Thom Yorke's vocal.

The Purple Rose of Cairo



Woody Allen's "The Purple Rose of Cairo" is a film that speaks to the heart of anyone who has been mad about the movies. In a now-legendary scene, intrepid explorer Tom Baxter (Jeff Daniels) steps off a movie screen and into the life of Cecilia (Mia Farrow), an unhappily married, unemployed, movie-lover. Together, Tom and Cecilia brave the complications of the real world. Brimming with quotable dialogue, "The Purple Rose of Cairo" toys with reality while maintaining a feather-light touch. This is a valentine to the movies, and more so, to movie-lovers.
