The Shortwave Set... Specifically the Aeroplane remix of Now 'till '69
So today' like a Creature Double Feature... ferrreeeelzz...
Quick sidenote... does anyone remember Creature Double Feature? When I was like 6 years old my Gramps and I bonded watching Godzilla movies and the like. I'll never forget the time we went to Kmart and he bought us what was supposed to be a sick Godzilla Creature Feature. Upon opening the tape and tossing it in the VCR it was obvious we'd been duped. Somehow, it was a Three Stooges flick. Gramps hated the 'Stooges so it seemed and we did NOT watch that movie for lask of anything better to do. To this day can't really stand the Three Stooges and that's probably why.
There's a new remix hitting the streets of the Shortwave Set tune Now Til '69 and I lerve it. I can't get it out of my head. I'm probably Aeroplane's most blatant, shameless fan so that's probably no surprise but I have to say that the
Aeroplane ( has really taken their initial concept (i.e. caramellas, aeroplane dub) and turned it into an insanely good long term project. The world needs more Aeroplanes :)
The Shortwave Set creates as they say it.... "Victorian Funk."
