They call it ‘boom bam’ - a futuristic blend of hiphop and electronica with hard-hitting beats, cutting-edge electronica, virtuoso scratch solos and the craziest rhymes you ever heard. And that's just the soundtrack to the story. hiphop where no man has gone before... FILE UNDER: far out, man!" - African Dope, the South African label [more info and to purchase]

UPDATE: Although this 2002 album is no longer shared at African Dope, you can still hear this album here. The chameleon Waddy Jones went on to be many more characters, including Max Normal, MaxNormal.TV, and then "Ninja" in parody group Die Antwoord.

Annetenna - self-titled CD

download this free CD
Annetenna - self-titled CD [2001]
Recorded for Columbia Records, but shelved by the record company. Annetenna made the entire album, including artwork, available for free download.

taste: This Is Not a Love Song - Extraordinary

Only four years late on this one, but perhaps we missed it together? Not a genre we follow perhaps? You probably knew their earlier incarnation, Ednaswap. Betting you do remember their song Torn, as Natalie Imbruglia scored a major hit with her cover. This sound familiar? "I'm all out of faith. This is how I feel. I'm cold and I am shamed lying naked on the floor... You're a little late, I'm already torn." [Annetenna's acoustic version live on Howard Stern Show]

Their Flash site offers the entire CD, artwork and grungy tracks from their Ednaswap CDs. The great fansite operated by Joshua and Jeremy Provost, operators of 727 Records is the place to visit, however, for information. They provide bios, articles, discography, songlist and the likes, including reviews from the good folk of Pathetic Caverns [hi there!]. If you have diffuculties with the zipped CD artwork (because of truncated names all being the same), you can download smaller versions of the art at the fansite.

Marc and Chris have a fabulous radio show, SquaresCubed. Every week, they bring you an hour of the finest music legally and freely available on the Internet. Hear the show live or listen to archived shows. Their great playlists are even linked to the artists' source sites. This, friends, is why I love the Internet.

Big Blue Marble

kids rock!
Big Blue Marble: kids rock! a growing list of kids making music

If you were a kid in the 1970s and early 1980s, you may remember an internationally syndicated TV program called BIG BLUE MARBLE. The "Dear Pen Pal" feature of the show gave children the opportunity to correspond by mail with children in other countries of the world. Many of those kids are still writing to one another today.

The Big Blue Marble soundtrack of songs sung by kids was released on A&M Records in 1974. Here is an ancient page with some show details that I put together in 1994.

In short, kids rock! Here are kids all over the marble making music of their own! [stream]

Know more cool kids' music on the web? Please post your link in the comments. Thanks!
