Madonnatron have kick-started our weekend in the best way possible; a playlist jam-packed with the likes of PJ Harvey, Black Sabbath and many more.
The perfect build-up for their gig tonight at the Black Lips Fluffer Pit Party – at which they’ll be joined by the likes of Future of The Left, Bo Ningen and PINS – this band are gonna give you life with these tracks and fully prove the Fluffer Pit Party is somewhere you HAVE to be this weekend!
Also working as a special glimpse into the influences behind Madonnatron’s latest self-titled record, which we can’t quite to get enough of, if psychedelic/post-punk/alternative vibes are your thing then this band is going to give you life and so is their playlist. Tune in now…
The Sonics – “Strychnine”
“Strychnine” is a song about getting high and getting hooked to a substance. Stef got hooked by The Sonics when she was a teenager and still gets high every time she sees these old men rocking the stage down.
PJ Harvey – “Long Snake Moan”
Is this what it would be like to gratuitously fornicate with hot strangers whilst being crushed to death by a boa constrictor in a subterranean swamp? Quite possibly.
Iggy & The Stooges – “Gimme Danger”
A psycho-sexual, visceral prowl through the dark corridors of the mind that is desperate to be made flesh. Essential listening whilst getting ready to almost drink yourself to death on a disappointing night out.
Can – “Paperhouse”
Memories of a pre-1980s lifestyle that you never actually lived played backwards in slow-motion through a thick lens in a room without walls.
Holly Golightly – “The Ride #2”
Billy Childish’s partner in crime. Sexy vibes in this song.
Grinderman – “No Pussy Blues”
Grinderman is one of our favourite Nick Cave incarnations. It’s the best midlife crisis a man could ever wish for. We know that the life of Nick Cave has been scarred by many dramatic events, this song is about the drama of not getting any. This is our appeal to him: “Dear Nick, should you find yourself in this difficult situation again, you can count on Madonnatron for help.”
Black Sabbath – “Fairies Wear Boots”
What is the point of a playlist without Black Sabbath? There is something about the way this kicks in that is so sexy and desperate. Cannot listen to just once in a sitting.
Cameo – “Word Up”
This is a semi religious testament to the merits of wearing spandex and cod pieces to promote the happiness and well-being of mankind. Everybody should rightfully be in an over-sexed dance troupe thrusting their pelvic areas with zealous menace.
Betty Davis – “He Was A Big Freak”
Betty is fucking badass. The Queen of Funk. You just would not mess with her. She sings about really controversial stuff with humour & without compromise. She also produces a lot of her music & was renowned for her live shows which sadly we never got to see. She is a constant inspiration.
Charles Manson – “Ra-hide Away”
Charlotte and Beth were members of the Fat White Manson Family a few years back whereby they bombarded audiences in South London with relentless backing vocals in recreations of the biggest hits from the Family Jams. This is the fine edge of taste that you walk when you love the music of someone morally dubious.
