Sometimes music you already own gets re-pressed to vinyl and it blows because it’s nice knowing you’re one of how ever many people to own a great record. Waiting for these represses are the arse hats who buy up and resell on discogs for inflated prices – last weeks Pepe Bradock repress of Burning as an example.
Then stuff gets re-pressed that you really, really want but don’t own and it’s amazing!

This track is so ace

Its hard not to instantly fall in love with a song thats main/only lyric is “here comes the drones”… its even harder for me personally given I know the folk in the band and have done for many years.
Sounding like a cross between Bailter Space and HDU Avoid Avoid and not a band to avoid avoid.

I’ve been watching Vinyl on the telly and it is a really frustrating watch, beautifully shot but the storyline is thus far just fucked and characters are weak…  I am still reserving judgement, for now, and shall continue to watch but I am tending to say its a piece of crap.

 

 

Happy easter

Slipmatt’s set from The Eclipse Reunion 3-4am… which I have been enjoying today and prompted some serious bizness!

I found out about this guy off Faith Fanzines message board some years ago, which is apt as they would describe things as `being HOUSE’ or not.
This is the very definition of the idea
if you have ever djed at a club this is exactly what you dream of.
 
Thanks to Mick for the hook up

Three mixes worthy of your consideration and play this week – all solid, none life changing… perfect office fare then.

This peel session version of being Boiled popped up on my twitter feed the other day (oh how modern you are bob) and I’ve listened to it more times than I care to admit since… ok 7 times since yesterday afternoon.

This week in a moment of me straying a long way from my musical comfort zone we have a two sided mix tape from Manuel which in his words is “a little something …

Any excuse really to post this wonderful album
