The GAG Quartet – le Internet Medley

Posted by Indie Music Finds | Posted in Charlie O'Shea, Independent Music Finds, Other, Other Finds, Rock | Posted on 18-11-2011


Le Internet medley genius song/video produced by the Israeli rockers The GAG Quartet. It’s an incredibly tight and well produced video with some hilarious, and often quite subtle, meme references throughout. Le Internet Medley has been on youtube for just 9 days now and has already racked up over 5.5 million views.

As far as I can make out, the medley goes: Nyan Cat, Ievan Polkka (Leek Spin), Keyboard Cat, Trololo, Chacarron Macarron, Numa Numa, Rebecca Black’s Friday, Rick Astley’s Never Gonna Give You Up, Chocolate Rain and then back to Nyan Cat. There’s allegedly 40 memes in total but sadly still no Milhouse.

Oh and I stumbled upon this video through a friend who makes some pretty cool, homemade music here.

“Beans on Toast is one man with a guitar. He’s been playing songs for about a year on the time of writing this (25th June 2006) and intends to do this for a bit longer. He’s convinced that global warming is going to wipe out civilisation any minute now. He’s bored of racism. He enjoys having sex. He drinks too much. He has recently bought a new guitar. He intends to offer his songs for download on this site. He intends to change them on a regular basis. He is aware that the road to hell is paved with good intentions. He likes North London. He has a beautiful girlfriend. He pretends to be a gypsy. He’s a big fan of Tom Robbins. He’s not a big fan of capitalism. He owns an Apple Mac. He spent the last year making some sort of stand against myspace. This is his myspace page. He has his tail between his legs. He is a proud Sagittarius. He pretends to be a hippy. All his songs have the same chords and he sounds like Billy Bragg.”

Dan Le Sac Vs. Scroobius Pip

Posted by Charlie O'Shea | Posted in Charlie O'Shea, Electro, Independent Music Finds, Poetry | Posted on 11-04-2009


Dan le sac Vs. Scroobius Pip are an unusual mix of spoken word and electronica with a unique sound on the indie scene. Both members are soloists outside of this duo. Scroobius Pip produces some fluent verse and dan le sac has a real knack for mixing up beats. (see Fixed and Thou Shalt Always Flatten Beats on his myspace) They released their first album Angles in May 2008 featuring 12 interesting tracks, Angles, the track is definitely worth listening to a few times to get the full story.
