Spectacle, beats… Wink
An oldie but a goodie as they say… comments are good for LOLz
It’s very clear these knuckleheads have no idea who Josh Wink is. Maybe I’m just getting old. Notice how well he beat matches yet he does not wear Dre Beats headphones. He wears Pioneer because that’s what he is. He’s a Pioneer

For the chitownheadz get the SmartBar takeover of Rinse (scroll down)

What would we be like if the era of sampling hadn’t happened?
 

This would be our reality… all day every bloody day
 

Life’s grim man!

I was driving to the supermarket the other day, as ya do, and I was listening to a CD – one of 4 I’ve unearthed for car time listening. I have a lot of CDs, many many boxes filled… I hate them, it was always a rubbish format and one that I do not mourn for a fucking second! I do however have a shit ton of the damn things… and on so many is music that is very important to me… music that define me and complimented my life …

Fat bastards!

Gots to know your history

As a boy this song/video had me transfixed

Unlike the above this song has always been and always will be awesome

If disclosure brought you here. You wasn’t an original garage raver.

Top Cat

Just get in line in your mind, getting ready to rip

Been revisiting this number of late, its great

When will the madness stop

The Clean were the first South Island-based post-punk group to gain a national following, on the back of a brace of instantly memorable songs including ‘Tally Ho’, ‘Anything Could Happen’, ‘Beatnik’ and ‘Getting Older’…

About to be inducted into the New Zealand Music Hall of Fame, Dunedin band The Clean prefer to look forward rather than back…

“It’s a strange thing dealing with other people’s perception of your music and what you stand for as a band.”

A hugely important band in NZ music and this week they will be inaugurated to the …

I won’t bore Mick with a song this week… as I’ve been pretty much listening to The Sleaford Mods non stop… it is election time and they’re my modern go to for anger, energy and some rough and ready drum programming, so rather than a tweet tweet tweet, BHS rant here’s some telly action.

One of my favourite authors is Phillp K Dick – a man whose many stories have been so badly served by the movie and TV industries… and this week I stumbled upon a new show based on …

Election getting you down with its up, down, turnaround nature of promise, false promise, lies, bullshit and jellybeans?
Democracy huh…
Well here’s some songs that won’t help your mood at all
 
Viva the revolution!
 
*fist pump*

 
 
I got Arizona residency one day too late
To vote on this election day.
And every year before I’ve been too drunk to register.
I’d say “I don’t believe in it anyway.”
I still shake my head at ballots cast for elephants.
I shake my head at ballots cast for donkeys,
‘Cause I swear to god our leaders, they will be death of us.
There’s no …

Holger Czukay is a maverick, a legendary figure revered for his work with the seminal German band Can and for a series of idiosyncratic, original-sounding solo albums.
Rest in peace you most wonderful freak!

Wiki
Holger Czukay: “I was fired for being too…intriguing.”
…in 1968, one of Stockhausen’s former pupils, a thirty year old shortwave radio enthusiast named Holger Czukay, crept into the the electronic music studios which Stockhausen managed at the West Deutscher Rundfunk and made one of the strangest albums to be released in what was already one of music’s strangest periods

“There are new forces in the world…a conflict between the generations; a powerful feeling that the American system is failing to deal with the real threats to life: the Bomb, the pollution of air andwater, the population explosion, the mounting slums and crime…” Alistair Cooke

 
On another note I kinda like the new Katy Perry Single… prob cause it samples Star 69 by Fatboy Slim which in turn samples I Get Deep by Roland Clark and What They Say by Maya Jane Coles… I don’t know what this means about me but yes I am concerned
