Mysteries.

Todays posts are 2 tracks by artists that I want more of. I can't find more information, because the Internet hates me. And so, my dear readers/listeners, I appeal to you, and your (hopefully greater than my) google-fu. Because Mine is ever so lacking this evening.

Jill Brazil - The Songs of Jill Brazil, Track 3 I wish I knew the name of this song, but I don't. It came into my hands via a rather convoluted route, and I don't have a tracklist for the album. That said, it's a fantastic album, and a great song, inhabiting a space somewhere in between James Chance, John Zorn, Mr. Bungle, and Tortoise. What I know about Jill Brazil from google, and the source of my copy of this album can be summed up as follows: They are from Bellingham, Wa. They are now defunct. This is one of 2 albums they recorded. Frankly, I want more. More importantly, I want a tracklist for this album. If anyone can help me out, please comment or e-mail me. It's fantastic stuff.


Witches - There She Is You might recognize this track from this classic Flashtoon from Korea - according to an FAQ on the authors website, the song from the movie is entitled "There She Is", and is by a Korean ska band known as the Witches. Frankly, I think it's fantastic. The problem is, it seems the entire english speaking interweb has never heard of them, outside of the context of this one flash animation. So, I'm posting this song, at least in part, as a plea to the world, for more information. Because this is a fantastic, propulsive piece of pop ska that, were it in english, likely would have charted 10 years ago. I want more. Badly.

I did a quick Google search and all I got was YesAsia and another store. I'm sure there's more. Actually, I found a site with clips from their first (and I think only) album. The only semi-informational site I found was this database thing, but it's in Korean, SO..

Sorry I couldn't help more~ This song is pretty awesome, and I wish I could find out more :\

Petrol - yea, I saw the label site, sadly said label site is lacking in any solid information re: a tracklist. Was pretty frustrating to realize that the single most authoritative site availiable had so little information.

And El, thanks so much, The english on some of the other tracks on this Witches album is atrocious! Some decent stuff. I saw the YesAsia site (it's linked in the FAQ that pointed me to the band name in the first place) but sadly they seem to have been out of stock for at least 6 months now. :(

We'll see if more information is forthcoming from other corners, eh?

I'm pretty sure that Jill Brazil track is called "U'AH".

I assume someone would have mentioned it, but it someone on YesAsia mentioned in a comment that they heard the song "Dduatta" in a flash video. Not certain if that's the proper track though.

I too love this song, and am interested in getting my hands on the album. But one thing im most interested in is what it translates into. I have been looking for english lyrics without success.

heya anon of 3/3/05,

Thanks for posting that, I'd been curious about the English lyrics. I tracked down "momo", the translator, at adiiidas.com. Seems her English is not so hot. Too bad, as this is the translation sambakza.net posted as well.

You should start uploading to http://www.content-type.com for your free file hosting. Works much better than the one you are using and allows bigger files with faster speeds.

Hey, my name is Lucas Hicks. I'm the saxophone player/composer/vocalist for Jill Brazil. I wanted to let you know that we are playing again. Our next show is in Bellingham on the 28th of this month. You can look at people.tribe.net/Lucas for Jill Brazil and all my other projects updates.
I'm doing my best to book us outside of Bellingham right now. Let me know if anybody has venue suggestions/connections.

I've been looking everywhere for an English translation (I'm sure that the one that was linked by an Anon (a year ago) is inaccurate. I don't know much Korean but certain things don't seem to match up (I could be wrong).

I'm just posting though to let people know that the Witches released another album last month called Volume 2: Yellow Guitar. I haven't picked it up yet, just found out about it recently.

Also, those of you who like Witches might want to take a listen to Yellow Kitchen, a progressive/punk/electronica band. :)

None of the supplied links to the mp3 work. Anybody got any other way of getting the song? I absolutely love it!

Three years late I suppose, but for anyone else who stumbles upon this page, their entire first album can be downloaded here:
http://www.megaupload.com/pt/?d=YKDQA6J2
Unfortunately, it seems, no importers have Broomstick for sale though.

I didn't manage to get it from megaupload.

Anyway, I managed to get the song at http://www.esnips.com/nsdoc/8c44b82f-b98c-4e1e-982d-f66a435dce89/?id=1197318662765.
