Sound Check

Soundcheck: James Cox

It’s that time of the week again, and S&M rider/ film maker, James Cox is on the agenda! When Coxie isn’t doing bar spins, you’ll find him behind the lens, filming some of the most popular edits to date. Lets have a ganders into James’ iPod, and see what he’s listening to…

SSD: Get It Away: 80’s hardcore band from Boston. Although they aren’t one of my favourite bands, this is one of my favourite songs of all time, which I guess is quite ironic given that the lyrics are about how much they hate cigarette smokers. Slapshot covered this song too, which is also pretty awesome.

Joy Division: Shadowplay: I’m sure this band needs no introduction…as if this song wasn’t cool enough already, James Newrick used it on his part in NSF2. me and my buddy Tommy spent a lot of good times together listening to this band, so it has to be in the list.

Fucked Up: Baiting The Public: This might be the newest song in the line up, and I know a lot of kids don’t like this band bacause of their different approach to hardcore, but I love their newer releases, especially Hidden World and the Two Snakes EP. One of my least favourite things ever us going to town and mingling with the real world, but this song in the iPod makes that experience far more enjoyable. In short, this song basically gets me psyched! Here’s the link: (finding the actual album recording may be a better representation of the song!)

Limp Wrist: The Ode: this is another song that I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of. I like the pace of the song and the gang vocals. I recently went to see Limp Wrist in London, and despite the show being one if the most homosexual things I’ve ever seen, they played this song last and it was epic…

The Smiths: Bigmouth Strikes Again: despite how it looks from my list, I don’t just listen to punk and hardcore all the time! I love The Smiths (although not such a fan of Morissey) and if I’m working or driving a long way I often listen to this band. This band also remind me of my buddy Cleggy, which is always a good thing. Incidentally, Slapshot covered this song, as their vocalist Choke is a big fan also. I actually heard the Slapshot version of this before the original! The title of this track reminds me of all the misguided bigmouths you see writing on certain BMX message boards and blogs, which I find pretty annoying. I think the Slapshot version is more appropriate in that situation!
