Download Round-Up

‘Excitement in my life is dinner without heartburn after it’ – Woody Allen in Scoop

I’m a big fan of Soderbergh and Clooney (though it sounds weird to admit to the latter). Clooney, Pitt, Damon and Ellen Barkin have done an interview for Time (linked to from Imdb) about the latest in the weightless Ocean’s heist movies and is actually fucking funny.,8599,1626512,00.html

My downloading activity in recent days has been centred around the discovery of the Mixes DB forum

Particularly this thread

The existence of which I was alerted to by Beane the Noodler at Brownswood. Some highly recommended bits are this session by Fila Brasilia from 2001

This classic 1993 show from Andrew Weatherall

And a mindblowing set from the Mann Moody… I actually already had this one and was planning to upload it myself. Very strong, and as weirdly soulful and unique as his LPs. Check.

Obviously I’m just starting to get inside this one and there are dozens more great sessions here… (and no fucking Rapidshare, thank fuck)

In other news, Um Que Tenha has live Baden Powell from 1996

Musicology has Ravi Shankar at Woodstock in 1969 (May 24th post)

Loronix has gone a bit international with some bossa jazz from Germany and Italy amongst others (the latter featuring Ennio Morricone – which I know will get some of you very excited)

Part Of The Queue has some early sessions by The Police. (I’m not trying to be ''fashionable'' by the way – I like them)

Pathway’s got the Dirty Dozen Brass Band live.

And Nothing Is has Miles from 75. Right. On. (May posts)

There’s plenty more around if you get your searching hat on. Its great. I never leave the house now except to go to work. My girlfriend left me, I’ve lost touch with most of my friends and when I do go out I can’t really be bothered to make conversation cos I’m thinking about getting back here on the DL. Fantastic!!
