Did you know? Samurai drink Murphy’s Stout…

If you lived in Ireland or the UK during the 90′s – then there’s a very good chance you may remember these classic TV ads. I only just found these again by chance – and can’t believe I had forgotten about them.

This was the first in the series…



…this was followed by a couple of ads in the same vein. But the masterpiece was yet to arrive. Made by the creators of the famous Ghost in the Shell, the next ad kept the same idea – but transformed it into a futuristic animé landscape. I remember watching this at the time with mouth gaping…and it still looks great today.



Mine’s a Murphy’s!

Classic Tracks : 1

So who remembers this? I think this was out when I was 10 or 11….and for that summer, I thought it was the …. Best. Song. EVER.

Ladies and Gentlemen…I present Green Jelly, with Three Little Pigs. A true classic.

Hey Alan! Alan! Alan!

Even better, I get a mention myself. And bizarrely enough my brother is called Alan…

Choons Of The Day : Dog Eat Dog

So who remembers these guys? I haven’t listened to this album in 10 years I’d say…

If you need your memory refreshed – in 1995 they were voted Breakthrough Artists of the Year at the MTV Europe Music Awards, beating the likes of Alanis Morissette and Weezer. No Fronts (below) was their main hit, reaching the top 10 in the UK. It all seemed to fade away after that – though surprisingly (to me anyway) they’re still going as a band, touring more in Europe now than the US.

(that was the single remix – but the album version is much better)

Predator Rap

So last week it was the Robocop Rap (see previous entry) – which was a new find for me. The Predator Rap however, has been one of my favourite mp3 choices for the last three or four years…

At one point, I had nearly half of it memorised – you can laugh all you want, but when you’re in the pub at 1am and can start rattling that off – you’re suddenly a legend. Oh yes.

Needless to say, if you haven’t seen the movie and don’t want the whole storyline given to you in 6 minutes – look away now…

“The woman grabs his gun & Arnie kicks it to stop her,
then he turns around & shouts ‘Get to the CHOPPA!’”

Robocop Rap

Surely there’s no better way of summarising a film than to rap about it. And anyone who manages to fit ED-209 into a rhyme is ok with me.

10 minutes of goodness…

“Clutching at his bleeding groin he falls in a heap
& Robo says ‘your move, creep’”
