Having lived through the latter part of the 90s when Dario G’s Sunchyme was fucking inescapable, I’ve only just discovered - in 2022 - that it was a built around an extensive sample of a song from the 80s (by alt-pop also-rans, The Dream Academy, who I’d previously never heard of before).
It took a rewatch of a 1999 episode of King of the Hill to teach me this.
Great song. Can never help myself adding LIFE IN A NORTHERN TOWNNNNNN to Sunchyme (a staple during the cool down at my spin class)
TIL that 3/5 of Duran Duran had the last name Taylor in their most famous period.
I once spent about 30 minutes thinking John Carpenter and Karen Carpenter were related.
I think that much brilliance in one family would have probably caused a singularity, TBH.
They’re also both musicians and were born a few years apart, so it’s not a completely stupid thought.
Are you also aware that Dario G were three blokes from Crewe? That surprised me when I discovered it
Excellent. I just went to look them up on Wiki and found this (unverified) info too:
True to popular belief, the name Dario G was named after the manager of Crewe Alexandra F.C., Dario Gradi, and the similarity to Gradi was not a complete coincidence.
Markee and i once watched the same throwaway channel 5 programme. At the same time and everything.
Highlight of my millennium.
Just realized last night that Silverchair are named after the C.S. Lewis book.
This I did not know. Makes sense though
It’s a really lovely song, tbf.
Well I am enjoying Turnstile’s Glow On a lot, thanks.
Still zero idea what 311 means or where it’s being constantly used to the point that @OtherwiseOutcomes noticed it, but there we go.
Somehow I’m now just thinking of Dario G as the next evolution of ‘two kids in a trenchcoat’
311 were/are a much-maligned nu-metal adjacent band
911 was a british boyband also from the 90s
people often say that Turnstile sound like 311 (in a negative sense)
Turnstile wish they could do a song as good as Bodyshakin’ by 911
i had as many as TWO 911 albums as a child
Did you like Jimmy, Spike or Lee best
