House music all night long

Written by: 12 June 2008 3 Comments

Germany is great. Over here you can pick your nose and eat it and no one will blink an eyelid. Some guy a few days ago was riding down the road having a dig in his nose with his little finger and when he saw me looking at him he pulled his finger out and sucked it, keeping eye contact as he rode past me down the road.

I lost a whole bunch of Raresh sets off my Ipod (same set in fact but split in 5 and i can’t even remember where exactly it was recorded to re-download it). I still don’t know why my ipod synched up with this machine. Now the set is stuck on my computer way back in NZ and for some reason, one of the only things i didn’t bring backup copies of!?

Respect to Bob. He was the champion who gave me Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and this is what I’ve come to rely on while busing, training, sleeping under the stars on a boat in the Mediterranean and generally just getting around. He plays Berlin on July 2nd http://www.last.fm/event/571855. This is possibly not what Wayde is coming here for but would be super if i could be here again from Amsterdam on July 2nd to check it out! Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy has a new album out titled ‘Lay down in the light’ and i hear it’s very good.

    Thanks Bob, will check it.

    Yo Websta, if you want to go let me know asap because tickets are selling fast. It’s all seated so should be able to drink beers no probs. Tickets start at about 28 euro and go up to 42 euro for the best seats. We could probably get away with the 28euro seats or the 35euro seats. Let me know if you’re keen so i can pick them up before i leave on Tuesday

    Either of you guys heard Raresh play this tune, or know if it’s the one he plays?
