Benny! Benny! Benny! Bennyyy!

Written by: 1 June 2009 9 Comments

I generally can’t stand Elton John but I am also naturally a big fan of this song.

Benny And The Jets (Mike Simonetti’s dub version)

Found on the Italians Do It Better blog

Been a bit slack on the posting here – I’ve been trying to learn Japanese, and it is hard work. I have sorted out temporary use of a turntable for my apartment which could be dangerous! Last vinyl purchases were some Jus-Ed, the mental new Ame innervisions, and a promo copy I found of Simon Flower’s ‘Phosphenes’ because Simon is ace and deserves the support (not that me picking up a cheap promo is going to help him out but anyway).

The summer is well underway and that (for me) means reggae and fun house records, hopefully my next update will contain some of those.
