The Olympics have arrived…
The biggest sports day in the world officially kicks off today; we have marked the Olympics earlier in the year – John Robb wrote a piece Who gives a fuck about the Olympics?
Those of you with any sense, certainly those of you that live in London will have made plans to escape the city for the duration. However you can’t escape the omnipresent Olympicisation of everything from clothing to household products, from food and drink to kids toys, it goes as far as stamping the Olympic logo on condoms!! However there is a darker side to the Olympic logo – we were not allowed to use either it or the London 2012 logo as we are not ‘Official Sponsors’ of the event – hence the pic of the London Olympic Statdium.
Well here at LTW we have now chosen to mark the occasion with a selection of tunes ”â first up and to mirror the Olympic awards ceremonies we present the Bronze selection. I wonder how many of these will feature in Danny Boyle’s opening ceremony tonight?
Dead & Divine ‘Bronze Godess ”Ë
Swell Maps ”ËBronze & Baby Shoes’
Satyricon ”ËTied In Bronze Chains’
Andy Partridge/Harold Budd ”ËBronze Coins Showing Genitals’
I had to include this as the title is just brilliant – sadly its not currently available via Youtube
Any suggestions for any more?
In time honoured fashion Silver and Gold are to follow…
