Song of the day: Regurgitator – "No Show"

February 24, 2012

Here’s Regurgitator with a song that fellow blogger Bill Kopp (Hi, Bill!) says “channels their inner Fountains of Wayne – it’s a powerpop gem of the first order”:

Song of the day: Regurgitator – "One Day"

August 10, 2011

Here’s Brisbane band Regurgitator with the first track from SuperHappyFuntimesFriends, an album they released five days ago:

Regurgitator – One Day (2011)

Fresh.

As a bonus, here’s another song from the album. I chose this one because I think it’s a pretty funny rip-off of The Church:

Regurgitator – “Into the Night” (2011)

Or maybe they’re ripping off The Cure. I’m not sure which.

Song of the day: Regurgitator – "Black Bugs"

September 16, 2010

Here’s Regurgitator with “Black Bugs”:

Regurgitator – “Black Bugs” (1997)

I think this song is about the singer having trouble with his video game. (As far as I can tell, he experiences what the young-uns call an EPIC FAIL.) But why does he keep singing “What’s at the end of Satan’s rainbow”? Huh?

Song of the day: Regurgitator – "Polyester Girl"

July 23, 2010

This time last week I played you a song by Regurgitator. At the time I was torn between two Regurgitator songs to play you. I ended up going with “Happiness”, a slightly psychedelic track. This week I thought I’d play you the other one. It’s completely different, and hideously catchy:

Song of the day: Regurgitator – "Freshmint!"

February 5, 2010

Here’s Australia’s most cynical band, Regurgitator, with “Freshmint!” (1999):

Link

B-b-b-baby i could be your superstar
And take too many drugs in a celebrity bar
K-k-k-keep my skin soft and shining from afar
For my high speed death in the back of a car
B-b-b-baby i could be your superstar
And we could boot champagne and snort caviar
S-s-s-stick with me honey and you’ll go far
As we watch the world burning from a heated spa

Burn baby burn (x4)

Regurgitator certainly don’t mind biting any hand that feeds them.


Song of the day: Regurgitator – "Blubber Boy"

August 31, 2009

Here’s Regurgitator with their ode to love in the frozen wastes, “Blubber Boy” (1995):

It’s probably my favourite rock song in 6/4 time.

The video for it is enjoyably odd – it features Eskimos (although no-one from Eskimo Joe), igloos, polar bears, and, er, blubber. Unfortunately, the person who posted the video decided to replace the original audio track with a live recording of the boys blubbering away:

Instead, if you’re in the mood to waste some bandwidth, here’s an alternative video using the original track. It’s someone called Matt eating a pineapple. Yes, really:

Incidentally, Regurgitator and “Blubber Boy” are both mentioned in my A History of Power Pop in Australia post.
