they've also been playing a fair bit of electrelane, as well as paranthetical girls
My "I have a massive crush on you" mixtape staple from the age of 16 is now propping up scenes of teachers fancying pupils.
It was weird. I'm half expecting that in the next episode, on their way home from a particularly "Skins" party, someone will listen to the second Kenickie album.
Bam, right in the childhood...
I dug Get In out last week and it occured to me that side two, as was, is basically an internal band narrative, Marie larging it up on her own post-night out internal jukebox while Lauren hides in the corner with a bottle of neat vodka.
Which is probably quite close to reality, actually.
liars - mr you're on fire mr
b-b-b-but... plebs will hear them
oh god, my individuality
is this going to happen every time there's any song on skins? the people who do the music for skins like good things, full story at 11. you'd think at this point, after this many threads it wouldn't be confusing in a "woah, weird something this kooky is on skins!" way, so whatever way's it supposed to be taken?
normally music on skins is from bands pretty well established or hyped, like animal collective and crystal castles, where as grouper are on a label i've never heard of who plays upset the rhythm size shows, anyway it is a great song that deserves wider exposure
going by dis threads anyway. how many more "X is on SKINS!" threads do we need, its just a conversational dead end.
fuck me. I always knew Billy Zoom was a fuckin sellout
because I'm not on DiS 24 hours a day. I was merely saying it was unexpected, for the reasons ThingsThatFly has already stated.
Anyway I'm off to complain about Cunted Shirt being used on Last of The Summer Wine because I don't want the old grannies to start liking them.
I've seen some of the new skins now the music is good but the way its used is a heap of shit, they have made it look like they are trying to hard to be a bit indie and cool. Its alright though for a bita fun and its always good to see the lil artists gettin to a big audiance.
i'm guessing 'i wish i was sleeping'? its the only song on the album so seems like an obvious choice.
but is there anywhere you can find out the play list of an episode of skins, because there is occasionally a song i like but don't know that gets played and i want more.
http://www.e4.com/skins/music/series3-music.html , if you browse around the music section you can also see what the actors are into, fairly typical stuff on the whole, but there are some surprises.
so were the dodos
According to that link. Looks like the folks who make Skins know their tunes. Think I'm a bit old to start watching it but fair play to them I say.
People'll slag 'em off if they play generic indie shite, and people'll slag 'em off if they actually play decent stuff. Personally i'd much rather they played the decent stuff and give others a good education. Top Gear and Ray Mears also have some good music selectors behind them too. I've heard Stars of the Lid and Labradford sountrack Ray erecting a tent made out of wolves foreskins many a time. :-)
