    A Guy Called Gerald reissues?

    This makes me unnaturally happy. Funnily enough, I sold a dupe I had of the original vinyl the other week, a long with a load of old shit. "You should do all right out of that Guy Called Gerald record", I say, only to receive the withering response: "To be honest with you, mate, no one's...

    Hercules and Love Affair

    Is good, but it's still a bit retro smug for my liking (which is my feeling on H&LA across the board). BUT I have to say: I think their own Club remix is awesome - easily my favourite tune of the year so far. It's like being stuck in a K-hole in the middle of the Paradise Garage. The vocal...

    Club UK - Final Frontier - Wandsworth/London

    Whenever I think of Club UK, I think of poppers. The whole place used to absolutely reek of the stuff. Went to see Jeff Mills play out there once, and the whole experience was so overwhelming that I literally went blind for about 15 mins and found myself feeling my way around the wall...

    Wedding request

    DJ Koze did a wicked remix of the Rah Band's Clouds Across The Moon (Moonboots Kick Ass mix). Played that at our wedding and it went OFF. It's kind of leftfield, but not; thus appealing to just about everybody, including those hard-to-reach, beard-stroking obscurantists. There was a similar...

    music to write to...

    Droid + Slug's first Shwantology mix does it for me every time. That, and the soundtrack to Soderbergh's Solaris remake, by Cliff Martinez.

    My brain hurts.

    Right. Has anyone else here seen this? It's BBC1's new Saturday night 9 o'clock drama, an update on the Jekyll & Hyde story, starring James Nesbitt and Gina Bellman (amongst others), and is written by Steven Moffat (who wrote the unbearably smug, to my mind, sitcom "Coupling"). It should be...

    Control The Movie

    Yeah, and when it finally does see the light of day, it will be prefixed "Quentin Tarantino presents..." ;) Nevertheless, I am ridiculously excited about it.

    Stephan Bodzin - "Liebe Ist"

    Thanks for the tip, Gek-Opel; to my shame I'd never heard of him :( Love the lazy time-stretched zither feel of the title track, in particular. Very DJ Koze (a fave of mine).

    Minimal house anthems

    Ah, but that's the point - Berghain is better even than that ;) LOL. That's the one my mate tried to buy drugs from. He was floating around in the Panorama Bar and my mate, as a Berlin virgin, obviously thought that tattooed face = dodgy dealer. As it happens, he just gave him a knowing wink...

    Minimal house anthems

    I went to Berghain in January as part of a large stag party (20 blokes), which we expected to be problematic; but a couple of us went in advance, had a chat with the bouncers, and they were totally cool. Even when one of the group forgot what he looked like and tried to buy some drugs off him...

    The Invisibles, by Grant Morrison. Anarchy, spirituality, magic & illusion, narcosis, time travel, inter-dimensional conflict, class war, hypertextuality and, of course, sex. Also, the best covers of any comic book series ever. Oh, and it's probably the thing that The Matrix rips off...

    Is Justin Timberlake a Product of Cumulative Advantage?

    I finally got around to reading this article yesterday, and whilst it's pretty interesting and feels 'true' in a common-sense-kinda-way, I can't help finding the approach they've taken to have some serious flaws: - they use the popularity of downloads in the initial group as a measure of...
