Ibland får man tag i saker som är för coola för att inte visas upp. Så I give you modeblogginlägg Judy K-style. Nu är jag inte riktigt den som vill konsumtionsivra, men båda de här grejerna är begagnade vilket gör att det hela känns en smula mer ok. I alla fall.
Modebloggishthingy nr 1: 90′s-stövlar med flames. Upptäcktes på second hand. Skulle mest prova på skoj. Satt som snudd på gjutet. Är fullkomligt awesome.
Älskade internet. Ibland lever du inte upp till min bortskämdhet. Här vill en lägga upp musik, men den finns inte på youtube. Inte heller spotify. Myspace däremot visade sig leverera, men vägrar delning. Så käre läsare. Klicka här och lyssna på Konvulsionslåten.

Jobb och samarbeten alltså. Jag tycker hon är grym.
Här är exempel på musikvideo hon gjort med Little Marbles.
Föll i plötslig nostalgichock. Sitter nu och lyssnar på Shampoo som en annan. Minns att jag köpte cd-singeln Trouble när den kom, i övrigt lyssnade jag inte så mycket på dem då in the 90′s. Kommer ta igen det nu. De är ju fantastiska!
Jacqui Blake and Carrie Askew were best friends at a secondary school for girls in Plumstead, United Kingdom, called Plumstead Manor. In the early nineties they started writingLast Exit, a fanzine for the Manic Street Preachers, and later appeared in the video for ”Little Baby Nothing”. They also wrote a fanzine for Fabulous.
During this time they formed Shampoo (derived from their schoolyard nickname of ‘the shampoo girls’, for using the old ‘washing their hair’ excuse whenever turning down a date request).
Their first single ‘Blisters and Bruises’ with the b-sides ”Paydirt” and ”I Love Little Pussy” was released by Icerink records (a short-lived label created by Saint Etienne Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs) on 7″ pink vinyl in 1993. This and their following single ”Bouffant Headbutt” received favourable reviews in the music press, such as the NME andMelody Maker, but were largely ignored by the general public.
Whilst their first two singles were typical of the Riot Grrl bands then coming to notice, the following year saw the release of their most famous song, ”Trouble” and the album We Are Shampoo which displayed a much more radio friendly sound, but still with much of their previous abrasiveness: ”Dirty Old Love Song” panned Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston (whose ”I Will Always Love You” had been the previous year’s biggest selling single in the UK). ”Shiny Black Taxi Cab” about a night on the town gone wrong (ending with a spoken section by the ‘taxi driver’ complaining to a new passenger about two drunken girls who had thrown up all over his cab the previous week).
”Trouble” crashed up the charts to No. 11 and landed the girls on Top Of The Pops and the cover of Smash Hits magazine. For the remainder of 1994 Shampoo did well, finding fans in both the mainstream and alternative music scenes – boosted in part by their links to Manic Street Preachers fanscene; however they also drew scathing comment from those within the small UK Riot Grrrl scene who saw the band as a repeat of We’ve Got A Fuzzbox And We’re Gonna Use It’s ”sellout” to commercialism – future artist Lucy McKenzie (then in the short lived Riot Grrrl band ‘Batfink’) wrote scathingly in her schoolgirl fanzine Poppy/Violet that ”Shampoo = Miss June And July Of The Paedophile Calendar”.
The band became moderately successful in Japan. ”Trouble” became famous for its inclusion in the soundtrack to the film, Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers: The Movie. The hit ”Delicious” is heard in the movie Casper: A Spirited Beginning. The song ”Don’t Call Me Babe” was included in the soundtrack of the 1996 movie Barb Wire.
However, by the time they released their next album Girl Power in 1995 (the phrase coming from a 1993 Helen Love record and much used by Riot Grrrl devotees – later used as a marketing slogan by the Spice Girls), they were already in decline, and the third Shampoo album Absolute Shampoo was released solely on the internet in 2000, due to an inability to acquire a recording contract. The duo disbanded shortly afterwards.
Shampoo combined a poppy girlishness and a love of all things plastic, kitsch, and pink (the album artwork for We Are Shampoo featured a collage of Barbie dolls and sweet wrappers) with a punk sensibility. They often cited their main influences as being the Sex Pistols, Gary Numan and the Beastie Boys, whilst also claiming to be huge fans of East 17 and Take That.
