Secret Stash

Well, they do kinda look like Mecca shoppers.

meccamuzakmondaysI heard you missed us, we’re back!  After a thirty week hiatus to showcase one of the worst countdowns in the history of Arabic numerals, DJ Scratchy is back to doing what she does best… playing hellaciously awesome music that you’ll probably never hear outside of your local big box store.  Welcome back to Mecca Muzak Monday everyone!  This’ll be the first of what should be the final thirteen posts in the MMM series since I have already scrapped my plans for a new countdown next year… instead opting for a whole new permanent Monday earworm series entirely to begin after New Years.  As if you needed another reason to look forward to the month of January!

Great.  2016 has already been ruined for me!

Today’s featured group is Stash.  Haven’t heard of them before?  Of course you haven’t.  Apparently, neither has anyone else.  They don’t have a Wiki page (Though some Belgian group also named Stash does), but they do have a homepage that doesn’t really tell you a whole lot about this dance/electronica/freak show female duo.

Despite this group’s almost complete anonymity, somehow the Mecca mixmasters got ahold of a song they performed in 2014 by the name of “Tear Me Down.”  It was featured during the second hour of this year’s Spring CD, and though it took a while for it to appeal to my ears, I now would easily rank it as one of my absolute favorite songs I have ever been introduced to via the ten Mecca muzak CD’s I’ve got to hear on repea-pea-pea-pea-peat for three years…

I know there are those who don’t care for dance music, and I won’t tear them down for inexplicably not liking this song.  Even the annoying Ke$ha impersonator can’t ruin the feel good vibe I get when listening to this… hell with that, she makes this song even better!  You go with your bad self, freakshow!

Too freaky for even The Nest.

Too freaky for even The Nest.

The video for this uplifting song about embracing individuality naturally has a whole cast of other people in it who are almost as strange as Stash’s rappa…

Like these two stormtroopers who got lost trying to find the Star Wars convention…

Will dance for chileh.

Will dance for chileh.

A Cedric the Entertainer doppelganger dancing off a Crave Case full of sliders…

Shake it, don't break it... oops, too late.

Shake it, but don’t break it… oops, too late.

A wannabe Highlander dancing in a kilt…

That age old question is about to get answered... prepare yourself.

Prepare yourself.  That age old question is about to get answered…

And a whole bunch of people doing strange moves with the official “Don’t Tear Me Down” pointer arrow…

You win 1,000 Nest Points if you noticed the chick with the Rainbow Brite shirt before I pointed her out here.

You win 1,000 Evil Squirrel’s Nest Points if you noticed the chick with the lavender Rainbow Brite shirt in the video before I pointed her out here.

We did not come here to tear down these fine, upstanding people who were obviously having a great time to a truly epic dance groove.  But we will hopefully put away the freak flag for next week’s exciting song you could bust a move to while shopping for suppositories…

Chill out, Skanki.  We weren't tearing you down either.

    Was that guy humping that sign?

    Dance away, Bill. Love the spectacle.

  3. they are great somehow… and they deserved a wiki page much more than the beaver…

  4. Mental Mama says:

    Yikes… I just don’t get that whole “look” they’re sporting. Makes me want to lose my lunch.

    • I noticed most of the chicks in the video are wearing pants that go up just under their boobs (or lack thereof in the case of the rappa). That used to be the tacky look peoples’ grandfathers wore, but I guess it’s in style for the young, fashion impaired set now…

  5. Trisha says:

    The sign humping is totally something I would have done while drunk. Just one of the reasons I don’t drink anymore! 🙂

  6. Quirky Girl says:

    That song was rather catchy! But I was concerned for the dude spinning that DON’T TEAR ME DOWN sign. If the edges were sharp, he could’ve decapitated himself. And then what? The lyrics might have to change to “Don’t tear me apart!”

  7. draliman says:

    This was actually not bad once I muted the volume and just had a laugh at the video 🙂

    I claim my 1000 points for spotting the chick in the lavender Rainbow Brite shirt before you pointed her out. Because you can’t prove I didn’t. Bwahahaha.
    What’s a Rainbow Brite?

    • What? You don’t enjoy music approved by Mecca? We get messages over the radio from our CEO and COO now… both of whom have accents. The former is a Kiwi and the latter has to be Briitish… and female. It’s like getting messages from Samantha Fox at night!

      I’ll strap those 1,000 points to Buster’s back and send him your way. I can not be held liable if he doesn’t survive the journey…

  8. Listening to the sign without the video is pleasant enough. For some reason watching the video disturbs be, It might be the big girl pants they both chose to wear instead of shorts.
    Perhaps I’m just too old lol

    • Ha!!! I don’t know if that’s what they’re really called or if you made that up, but I’m going to start calling those unsightly, extremely high rise britches “big girl pants” now!

  9. Anything that makes January less scary works for me. No matter what it is, I’m just glad for something to take the edge off winter!

  10. I loved that. The music, the dancing and the message. Can you seriously tell the accents of a kiwi and an aussie apart? You are truly gifted. Obviously there is a YUGE difference but most people who aren’t from around these parts think we all sound the same. 😉

    • I couldn’t tell by the accent alone… I knew it wasn’t quite Australian or British. Finally, he happened to mention in one pre-recorded snippet that he grew up in New Zealand. He also said he started in retail as an overnight stocker, so we have that in common!
