For our second entry,we have gone for a euphoric orchestral pop song from 2006. Guillemots are made up of musicians from England,Scotland,Brazil and Canada. They have had four top 40 hits so some of you might know them. We're Here was released as a single but only got to number 156. It's from their debut album,'Through The Windowpane',which was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize.

I really liked this back when it was released, wasn't expecting to ever see it in BJSC but a welcome addition... my favourite of theirs was the wonderfully epic Sao Paulo.

Yes,Sao Paulo is their best song and it was considered but I thought We're Here would be more likely to get votes as it's shorter and more poppy.

I remember their song "Get Over It", made my chart too back in the day. Not that I've heard it for years! So I'm interested to find out if this is better!

Jeff Lynne is revered in Rolloland. There is a statue of him in Rollo Park,Prosperity. So we are honoured that ELO are representing us in our first Buzzjackfestivalen appearance in between being inducted into the Rock'n'Roll Hall Of Fame and headlining Wembley Stadium. In an interview with Radio Rollo,Jeff Lynne said that the Buzzjackfestivalen was just as prestigious as the other two events.

'Endless Lies' was recorded for the 1983 album 'Secret Messages' but when it was reduced from a double album to a single album,the track was left out. It was re-recorded for 1986's 'Balance Of Power' album.

BJSC96 - Versailles by White Soxx

White Soxx are French duo Fabrice Cuitad and Frederic Mercier. The name of the latter led to a rumour at the time that it was Freddie Mercury working under a pseudonym. The song was released in 1981 and didn't chart anywhere. I first became aware of it two years later when Peter Powell played it a few times on his early evening Radio 1 show. I recorded it from the radio onto a blank cassette. No internet downloads in those days. The song has since gained a minor cult classic status.

BJSC97 - Standing Outside A Broken Phone Booth With Money In My Hand by Primitive Radio Gods


Primitive Radio Gods are from California. This song got to no.74 in the UK in 1996,making it just ineligible for Unknown Pleasures where it might have been more suited. It did,however,reach no.2 in Canada and no.1 on the US 'Modern Rock Tracks' chart. It samples two lines from the BB King song 'How Blue Can You Get',his 1964 cover version of a blues song from 1949. This video was made by a student called Kelsey Ross for her class. She's taken the song title and lyrics quite literally but this is one of the best amateur music videos I've seen on youtube.

BJSC97 Stats

There were audible gasps in the semi-final arena as Standing Outside A Broken Phone Booth With Money In My Hand was announced as the final qualifier defying all predictions. It finished in 19th place,just a point ahead of Seyetana and Ultraviolenceland's entries,the latter song just missing the final on a tie-break.

The Primitive Rollo Gods (as they are now called in Rolloland) performed as well as could be expected in the final,finishing in 40th place with 94 points. This included two 18 point maximums,the same number achieved by our previous finalist,Steven Wilson,who finished 12th in his final.

The full list of points received:
Trifoski,Cumulonimbia 18
Deandria 11
Aelandor 10
Varake,Quintessa 8
Terra Avium 7
Kluminican Republic 5
Espen 4
Jupiterdonia 2
Harmonica,Land Of DW,Persephonia 1

8 of those countries awarded us points for the first time in a final.


Our semi-final vote:
Terra Avium 12
Persephonia 10
Aelandor 8
Altyr Muunilinst 7
Tartford 6
Greenfroze 5
Botanikka 4
Singerpurear 3
FSR Rontvia 2

BJSC98 - Silver Screen Shower Scene (Thin White Duke Remix) by Felix Da Housecat


Felix Da Housecat is an American DJ from Chicago. Silver Screen Shower Scene features vocals from French singer/songwriter/DJ Caroline Herve under the name Miss Kittin. The Thin White Duke is English producer Stuart Price who has worked with Madonna,Pet Shop Boys,Kylie Minogue and The Killers amongst many others.

The single version reached no.55 in 2001. It then returned to the chart a year later,just creeping into the top 40 at no.39. I think this was as a result of this remix being played on Pete Tong's Radio 1 programme a few times which is how I became aware of it. The remix (included on the CD single) is very different to the single version with just the vocals kept in.

I'm really enjoying all of your entries so far Rollo, it'll be tough for you to top 'Routine' for me as that's still probably my favourite entry of the entire year but 'Silver Screen Shower Scene' is your best entry since then! wub.gif

Primitive Radio Gods qualifying was one of the more surprising moments in recent contests but in a good way, I'm glad that they at least didn't come last in the final.

BJSC98 Stats

Our switch to dance music for this contest failed as Silver Screen Shower Scene finished 27th in its semi-final with 41 points,10 points away from qualifying. The song was already a big favourite in Aeroche and they gave it their 12 points. Other countries to vote for it were Terra Avium,FARC,Skall.#00274E,Cumulonimbia and Tartford. Some of the countries in the other semi-final said they would have voted for it so a kinder semi-final draw might have got it through to the final.


Our semi-final vote:
Kluminican Republic 12
Avalonia 10
Trifoski 8
Hushkanukia 7
Tartford 6
Cor Lupus 5
Summericia 4
Skall 3
Singerpurear 2
Cadelicia 1

Our final vote (countries we voted for in a final for the first time are in green) :
Deandria 18
Kluminican Republic 15
Avalonia 13

Trifoski 12
Persephonia 11
Hushkanukia 10
Cor Lupus 9
Botanikka 8
Ramrynia 7
Buzzjack Mountain 6
Cadelicia 5

Terra Avium 4

BJSC99 - Bullets by Archive


Archive are a British group formed in 1994 but I didn't discover them until two years ago. I have been steadily working my way through their albums since then and have reached 2009 and their sixth album 'Controlling Crowds Parts I-III' from which 'Bullets' comes. The song is the second track out of the five that make up Part I,but you wouldn't know when you listen to it that it is part of a five song suite,it works fine on its own.

Archive have released eleven studio albums but still don't have an album chart placing in the UK. They are much more popular across the rest of Europe and have had top 10 albums in Belgium,France,Switzerland and Poland. I have never known a group dabble in so many different genres of music and that maybe explains why they haven't made any breakthrough in the UK. They can't be labelled as anything. Their obscurity makes them ideal for BJSC and I'll be interested if anyone on here has come across them before.

Thanks to all those who took the "personal responsibility" to vote for Archive and help them qualify for the final. As Archive do not appear in the video,here they are performing Bullets live so you can see what they look like:

I've known and liked Archive since about 2005! Was pleasantly surprised to see them entered here and surprised also to see them qualify! tbh I haven't listened to any of the albums past the one called "Lights", but all those earlier ones that I've listened to many times are largely great and 'Bullets' is fab too! This may inspire me to eventually get around to listening to the six or so albums I've not heard kink.gif

good luck!
