Mogwai - New Paths To Helicon Part 1

First heard this on John Peel when I was about 15. Was amazed by its beauty and otherworldniness but wasn't quite ready for it. Now one of my very favourite tracks.

T Recs

Just a couple of things I think you might like...

This album, complete with titillating cover and lost in translation title is never going to get a waffly deconstruction show but it is a well lovely bit of trio jazz. Act quick cos Quimsy likes to take his links down (link is in comments). Here.

And cool French geezer gilb-r uploaded some excellent obscure nuggets here.

Detriot - Moonstarr

Detriot by Moonstarr

These days I like my techno and house a bit deeper but this is a classic from my Gilles P days - Moonstarr's Detriot (intentionally mispelt apparently!)

What Does Boogie Mean?

Enjoy this fantastic clip from Billy Wilder's 1941 film Ball Of Fire where Gary Cooper is cast against type as a bumbling academic who falls for Barbara Stanwyck's utterly smokin' gangster's moll / nightclub singer. Gene Krupa has a great cameo as himself here. I hope you enjoy the 'hip' slang as much as I do. Wait for the end where the 'wild man' GK does a match trick. Killer!

Tom Greenwood Mix

Getting well into Soundcloud. Just popped in to see JOMF head Tom Greenwood recently uploaded a mix. It is as satisfyingly weird and underground as you would have good reason to expect.
