didn't Wiley chat shit over Midnight Request Line?
or am I senile old geezer?
Why does your boss hate her so much? She's got some great songs.
when I originally envisioned this thread I composed a story about how I "played out" on the "free party sound system" and I kicked off with a misjudged Kabaka Pyramid tune:
Kabaka Pyramid - King Kabaka
( troughs & peaks as @woops wisely said )
but then I dropped this
Dennis Brown & Damien Jr Gong featuring Nas - Promise Land
and the captive audience went wild, because room one must have been shit ( trojan sound system / earl sweatshirt? can't remember tbh, but venue was rammed, my mates on the guest list couldn't get in, they missed a treat...well, when I say "treat", i mean me )
but what I really wanted to play was the original version, recorded well before Aswad linked up with Gregory Isaacs' milliner ( hat maker )
Aswad & Dennis Brown - Promised Land
I did once play this out at an illegal rave, in the afternoon, and it did go down quite well...
heavy bass line
not according to him!
he says "she's a talentless , tuneless, hack! Lindsey Buckingham, however, is a genius!"
you must have been deceived by the "glamour" she has cast, much like the force field Steve Jobs managed to cast on iPhone owners
Senking - Black Ice
I once worked "somewhere" and a lot of the people on the "help desk" were a bit younger than me, and they were into UK garage and dubstep, etc., but they lost their shit when I played this "sound art" in the office... heavy as fuck bass.. combines sub bass with an oppressive momentum, like trying to slowly and laboriously chip your way through a glacier and getting nowhere
One of my favourite "rock band drug stories" was about Fleetwood Mac... I think, could be applied to anyone but pretty sure it was The Mac when I read it. Gist of it was that they used to employ someone on tour to hold on to their enormous supplies of coke and one time he thought it would be hilarious to fill up the "coke bag" with a kg of sugar or some other lookalike substance - and then, right in front of the band he "accidentally" dropped it spilling their whole tour supply to the four winds with the result that they all immediately flung everything aside - including self-respect - and dived on the floor desperately trying to snort and gather as much as possible while he laughed himself stupid.
Also wasn't it Stevie Nicks who allegedly used to pay someone purely to use a straw to blow coke up her arse? That sounds like totally made up bollocks of course but I like to believe the other one is true.
