I ramble some

Big weekend of gigs in Nottingham and London.
Massive thanks to the lovely people at Futureproof - what a great night!

I've done a twenty nine minutes and five seconds grime and dubstep mix for the people at dummy mag, get downloading...

Find myself in a (dangerous?) semi-nostalgic mood.
Must be getting old...
I miss Imperial.
Can't believe now I never took any pictures.
Here's one by the lovely Tom of our one-and-only instore, Charlie Parr:

Maybe now there's enough distance / time between me and then to see it more for what it was, or enough time for me to retell it to myself as some kind of story.
Five years, a lot of it really hard, difficult times for me, but really I grew up then and there, I don't know if anything else will feel like that again, or be as rewarding.
So many strands of my life, my musical life, hearing making playing absorbing and talking and talking about, interwoven together at a specific spot: 58 Park street.
To stand outside on the steps, on a break, or checking the window display,a moment of peace amongst the hectic and the hustle, looking at the golden unicorns on the top of the council building, shining down reflected sunlight on park street. Hoovering on a saturday morning. Checking the racks every every day. Unpacking a fresh box of 7's, 12's, digipacks, handmade cd's, imports, reissues, bootlegs, cracked cases, missing cd's, polystyrene foam and crunched up newspaper.


Back to the studio tonight, time to hunker down and get on with it.
See you soon.

saturdays and sundays

Thanks to everyone who came down to the Black Swan on saturday. Proper fun. I may have felt a little old. Drum machine died at the soundcheck but the theremin was possesed! Monkeysteak were amazing. Bring on the Balkanstep...

...and sadly Alice Coltrane r.i.p. One of my happiest dj memories is playing "lovely sky boat" from "Monastic trio" (what an album) at a melt banana gig, whjen I was djing in between brutal metal support bands - band finishes, harps ripple over the soundsystem, glorious.


any londoners around on sunday, come down to the Old Blue Last, it's free...
