    Thumped Kru Choonz.

    Thanks for the very kind words dudes, I think Graham did a brilliant job. Terry Riley reference is spot on. Yeah, I can imagine the 1 is tricky enough for the first few listens. I can't hear it that way at all now, I just hear the pattern as it is. I'd really like to be hearing it for the first...

    Thumped Kru Choonz.

    Fuck it, why not. Graham Montgomery late of these parts and of the incredible Rollers / Sparkers made this, with me on drums

    Wire - 154 (1979)

    That's a great comparison. Talking of Wire covers, this is mostly brilliant. A lot of love for the songs.

    Wire - 154 (1979)

    (y) I really don't know...my German is weak, and the other thing about Zeltinger Band is that Jürgen Zeltinger sings in Kölsch, a challenging enough dialect with loads of familiar words spelled and pronounced differently, and lots of completely different words for familiar things. Ha, that's...

    Wire - 154 (1979)

    As it happens, I know that Mau Mau stuff very well, the drummer from Can plays trumpet on a couple of tunes. Spellmans had another project who only released 1 12", but it's great dark synthpop. You may know it already, but just in case, The only other punky stuff i know from Köln / Düsseldorf...

    Electric Picnic 2021

    I used to love the Saturday and Sunday afternoon thing at the picnic, wandering around the main stage, bumping in to little circles of my friends on the grass, quietly pacing themselves into oblivion. I worked at a good few of them, mostly doing backline on the main stage, and it was always...

    Gigs starting back up

    I saw a few theatre and dance shows, all great. Sometimes the restriction of no audience and all that has made people very creative and resourceful

    Gigs starting back up

    Just packing my gear for rehearsals for a theatre show in the Fringe, starting next week in The Beckett. We had a chunk of rehearsals during the summer, Covid test every day, very strict distancing, masks all the time except for the last run of it. It didn't blunt the brilliance of being able to...

    Wire - 154 (1979)

    You sure are! Great post. I'm listening to the Mittagspause one now, worth the recommendation. I know very little NDW stuff apart from Joachim Witt and a few others, and similarly little good German punk apart from Die Ärtzte, your stuff on this recently has been really informative.

    The 'Bands I don't Get' thread

    I'm very very fond of the 2 ambient ones with Holger Czukay. There's often something about those frontman types which I find a turnoff though...at a certain point they often get this kind of religious preciousness about themselves and their work, I see him like that. I don't know much Japan...

    The Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground & Nico (1967)

    Interesting. I wasn't doing a windup there, clearly, just slapping a bit of hyperbolix under a good link. If this had been 20 years ago I might have enjoyed a good punchup to try and parse the DNA and heritage of the VU, and stick to my guns about their originality, maybe learn something on the...

    The Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground & Nico (1967)

    I should add an asterisk when I'm deliberately being ridiculous, so there's no room for this kind of dreadful misunderstanding

    The Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground & Nico (1967)

    Did this get posted yet? Worth your attention. They invented everything, and did it better than anyone else. Fuckers.

    Wow, I have just discovered...

    Meant to reply to this earlier, actual WTF followed by Oh Wow. He engineered it, not produced, but still, amazing. The Discogs list of his I-probably-did-it-for-the-money jobs is amazing, I can't help visualise him turning up for the Saw Doctors session with a blinding hangover from some crazy...

    People Who Died

    Had The Congos on repeat the last few months, my son loves it. Magic piece of work, endlessly brilliant album. That's been back on the speakers since Perry died. I believe my first conversation with you was on the subject of Scratch, in Lazybird one time. You were DJ'ing and played some stuff...
