Liking this song exposes me to "you know how I know you're gay?" ridicule, but every time I hear "Ecuador" by Sash I crank the knob up to 11 and reinsert "Escuchame!" back into my vocabulary.

Like the Village People represent techno, electro, dj and house to the Nth degree, eh? While, in the meantime, The Real McCoy are the Time/Life memories you'll be buying in a few years .... and, along with the closet Duran Duran ....

That's what the tell it is all about ... not the music ...


 

BTW is DJ Sasha the same Sasha? Xpander

I was playing Ecuador and my granddaughter knocked at my door. As soon as she stepped into the apartment, she exclaimed, "You like Techno!?!" I am, after all, 51 years her senior ...

Of course, it is my favorite pop/rock music, but I lean to the electronic side up to and including Tomida, especially his arrangements of Debussy.

Thanks for the recommendation and since it is always nice to find good techno. However, I'm (in everyone's estimation I suppose) queer, and have been that way since puberty and I found out I was straight; however forward ....

What?


 

Of all the things we could find common ground on, Tadowe, I was not expecting "Ecuador" to be one of them. Here's more on Sash. I found this song when Yahoo Launch played it on my personal radio station. My kids are going through a Guitar Hero phase, so I'm the only one in the house who likes this song.

You know how I know you're gay? You got married and had kids. Pretty suspicious if you ask me.


 

Rogers wonders, "Of all the things we could find common ground on, Tadowe, I was not expecting "Ecuador" to be one of them."

An infinite number of things to 'agree' about, and about what to 'disagree'?

I actually don't know, except the generality of politics, in some vague way, and because political zealots will invariably, purposefully, fail to even reach a definition of what that might be!

'We' (your blog majority) disagree on my directness in the face of 'your' (same collective) refusal to address reality. By that I mean that my reasoned conclusions are always met with ad hominem, as was evident on your yellow-dog site, and here for that matter. No real cause for disagreement is supported, but rather it is ad hominem that counters my reasoning and conclusions. Your comment is an example of what 'agreement' means to you. It is an example of the ends justifying the means.

So, here you are being 'attacked' by me, right? You've characterized me as doing that in other 'journalistic' commentary on the Workbench; even the most recent article necessarily includes me as one-of-THEM (shudder) ... I'm one of the bad guys, right ... the dim and 'anonymous'?

I don't believe that people who disagree with me politically are dim witted. The "one of them" in my comment referred to techno music.


 

Escuchame

Wot is that? Some kinda Equadorian Steve Martin thing?

Well... Escuuuuuuuucha Meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Wot's that? "Listen Up"?

Spud's listening wot are you trying to say?

The song? Ummm, it's got mad beats. Kinda repetitive. 6/10.

Still trying to figure out how a guy with a Mullet from Texas ended up in a buzz cut and noirish glasses in Florida listening to muy caliente techno.

Tis a puzzlement.

Be Well.

No one will call you guys queer for listening to The Retrosic, my new favorite band of all time. Check out all the songs, but in particular, 'Revolution'.


 

"This German EBM act grabs Wumpscut's chewed up aggro baton and runs it directly into a modern era of dancefloor-ready synthetic nihilism."
-- splendidezine, 9/04

"Heavy, pulsing beats, demonic vocal utterances and grim gothic melodies comprise this excellent chunk of aggro-industrial. This must be what it's like to be pummeled by the beasts of hell (while at a dance club) that appreciate gothic music. Brutal distorted vocals spear through thick pounding dance beats and un-ignorable electronic melodies complete the picture. "
