This old (idea of) house

House is a Feeling's Anti-Dance Top 10 of 2005

Don’t believe the hype!

Kelley Polar - Love Songs for the Hanging Garden

It’s indie rock! So were the Junior Boys! You’ve been duped! We helped do the duping! Next you’ll be trying to sell us on Of Montreal’s inherent funk! Hoisted by our own petard!

0=0 – “Soul Hunter Testifies”

Drum & bass cats love to talk this one up to show off what tuff guys they are. (We know we do.) C’mon on tho…this is free jazz. Try dancing to it in front of a mirror and tell me if you haven’t just woken up in homeroom with no pants on.

Mr. Oizo - Moustache (Half a Scissor)

Pretty excited about this one at first. DUPED. This is IDM. Wah wah, baby wants his bottle!

Ricardo Villalobos

Poor Ricardo. Someone should call the boy’s mother. He’s in a bad way. At least buy him a cup of coffee and bus fare home. Hello? Ricardo? Hello? *snaps fingers*

Jackson & His Computer Band - Smash

See Mr. Oizo. The French! We shouldn’t have trusted them with nuclear weapons, either.


Which isn’t the only reason it’s terrible, but it’s a big one. Mine eyes have seen the glory, etc etc.

Richie Hawtin’s hair

Actually, we fear this is very dance.


A blindfolded horse with two asparagus stalks in his teeth would be funkier than this shit.

Punk-funk/Death Disco/Douche Dance



Back in my day we called it drill and bass and rightfully disdained it! Slipping standards are tearing our society apart.
