What music do you listen to while staying up all night due to insomnia?
pic related, mine all night every night
Sleepless nights are Bjork nights. Vespertine puts me at ease if I have anything on my mind.
Bjork should release an album of her saying and whispering calming things.
>in blue jaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaam
Gonna be honest, if Chris Morris made a 2hr long album of him just saying made up words and fucked up monologues I'd listen to it.
Or, even better, if he made another fucked up ambient radio show. I wish Blue Jam had more than 2 series, it's perfect.
I think it might be because of how it's one of those majors that's just full of people who don't really care about the topic and just want to make a decent amount of money doing whatever.
oh god im one of those people
im a musician at heart but that doesnt provide security, so im going for programming as a kind of trade.
Drone, ambient, field recordings, etc.
Although I usually just lie down in bed and try to rest anyway. Even if I don't sleep, I still end up less tired the next day than if I stay "active".
I've already got the Blue Jam CD and radio shows but I'm pretty sure the Jam tv show has sketches that don't appear in either. Also the full length music tracks in the Blue Jam radio show get annoying after a while as I'd just rather hear the sketches.
yeah I do It all. recorded the glitch drums myself. I use some sample libraries for the orchestral instruments and piano, but guitar and electric organ is all real, as well as the vocals obviously.
lyrics for "asynchronous gait" were written after being awake for 22hrs. its about sleep cycles being out of sync with the day/night cycle
I personally think the music and sketches go hand in hand because of how the show is made up. This kind of ambient soundscape that just drones on a stream of consciousness.
However, it would be nice if someone took the time to take ALL the sketches in Blue Jam and remove the music. Just an album of all the sketches featured in the show, not just a 'Greatest Hits' like the CD is.
Usually stuff like this and some noise, j-core, gabber. Good music with catchy lyrics is too distracting.
Not sure if this is what you're looking for but this channel on YouTube has removed the non-sketch music of every episode? You could download them from a YTtoMP3 thing if so? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxtyLSm493g&list=PLF9818396FA36E90E&index=15
btw, a gentle reminder that all of the original Blue Jam is available for download from archive.org (right click+download link). Cook'd and Bomb'd did a great job archiving that stuff, but bear in mind the recordings are pretty old and therefore kinda rough.
I would but my connection is slow as fuck, it'd take almost a day to upload. Either a full file or split into series would be great if anyone's got all the files and a half decent connection.
Just another quick note, Episode 6 of Series 1 is shorter because a sketch entitled 'Bishopslips' was faded out by the BBC for being too offensive, so they just cut back into episode 1. The first 10 or so minutes of S2E1 are practically the same as S1E6.
If you haven't heard it yet, the Chris Morris radio documentary they made this year called "Raw Meat Radio" discussed this incident. It's up in the air whether or not Chris himself did it to cause a stir of rumors, dude seemed to enjoy creating rumors about himself for a laff.
hell, ill go ahead and upload it in case someone wanted to hear it.
OH SHIT NEVERMIND HERE YA GO

that Taxi bit is genuinely terrifying, and as such is one of the most thrilling bits of comedy ever. Also, he was weirdly prophetic when it came to Jimmy Savile's death, despite getting sued for it.
