A Downtown Affair





Prince Language has been one of my favourite remixers and producers for a year or so now and his latest mix on Soundcloud is utter genius.

BJM


After years of passing interest I'm now a full on BJM (Brian Jonestown Massacre) fan, despite their somewhat tasteless name. Always intrigued, watching the documentary DIG! recently converted me to fandom. Was thus delighted to see Anton (who more or less is the band it seems) is uploading weird and wonderful things on Youtube. Check it out here.

Here's a trailer for DIG! and a choice cut from Anton's Youtube.




Hot Chip - I Feel Better





I have just completely fallen in love with this song. The official video is unwatchable but I love this home video style one.



And here they are on fire in a live session for KCRW in California.

Joe Moran


Joe Moran, listed on Wikipedia as a social historian, wrote a lovely book called Queueing For Beginners which I came to after reading a piece on commuting he wrote for The Guardian. I see he has a blog now which is full of witty, interesting, pondersome observations on the minutae of everyday life. Check it out here and here is a small sample on the death of Ceefax.

'Ceefax’s go-to pages were well known to initiates: 102 for news, 302 for football, 400 for weather, 430 for train timetables, 888 for subtitles – good for watching Top of the Pops if you wanted to decipher the lyrics. Some people would watch the football on Ceefax, staring at the 0-0 score and willing a goal for their team. I suspect this is more gripping than it sounds.

Anyway, RIP pages from Ceefax, little Zen moments of stillness and contemplation in the otherwise endless flow of television. We have no need of you now that television is on all the time and it will never, ever end.'

My DJ Gig


Last Saturday of every month for the foreseeable find me at the Library pub, near Highbury & Islington Tube, spinning tunes...

Mankind by Eric Gill


Just had to post a photo of this incredible sculpture by Eric Gill which you can see at the V & A in London. Weird, thrilling, proper.

Am I Nothing?


Been loving Noel Fielding's Luxury Comedy - commendably envelope-pushing weirdness. Also it looks spectacular. Here is a photo of his artwork shown in Soho last year which relate to ideas in the show and which I found at Programmed From Childhood.
