Charley says ARTIST! Lords Of Acid

September 17, 2010

A month ago I was watching the ‘Sucker Punch‘ trailer and noticed a familiar song being used.

Vanessa Hudgens and Emily Browning were kicking ass to the 1994 Lords Of Acid single ‘The Crablouse‘!

I never got round to mentioning this on Charley says POP!, but I was just watching ‘De Vrijdagshow’, an entertainment news program, and apparently this is still considered ‘news’, so here I am posting about it anyway.

Lords Of Acid is a music project by Maurice Engelen. Maurice is also the man behind Praga Khan and late 90’s / early 00’s record label Antler Subway. Most recently he was an X Factor judge, co-founded the new label Sonic Angel and mentored Eurovision 2010 revelation Tom Dice.

In 1988 Lords Of Acid had their first hit with ‘I Sit On Acid‘, which would be ripped off years later on The Chemical Brother’s ‘Hey Boy Hey Girl‘. They went on to release four studio albums and were touring the States as recently as this year.

What with being born the year they broke through, I only got to known about this band around the time former ‘Wheel Of Fortune’-girl Deborah Ostrega was their lead singer.

In 2003 they released ‘Private Parts‘, an album which served as a collection of new songs and their greatest hits rerecorded with Deborah’s vocals.

It also includes the controversial video to ‘Gimme Gimme‘, which made a lasting impression to say the least!

Charley says TV! KittyCrush

September 13, 2010

Meet KittyCrush, three Belgian babes who are ready to become the hottest DJ sensation on the scene.

From left to right, there’s former ‘Wheel Of Fortune’-girl Zoë Van Gastel, former Miss Belgium Alizée Poulicek and  model Anouk Matton.

As of today Life!tv will be airing a reality show in which these three blondes get trained to be a DJ collective.

This in line with the channel’s new ‘mentertainment’ profile. (Wait, when did that happen?)

Plans to make a proper girl group out of them seem to be vague at the moment. A debut single hasn’t been confirmed, but hasn’t been ruled out either.

If I can make a suggestion sticking with the ‘kitty’ theme, I’m sure Emma ‘Soraya’ Beard will gladly let them record her ‘Come Kitty (Cat Scratch)‘!
