    there were five, for some reason I think there were meant to be six but one never got made - just chatted to Alan who looked after the production of them and he only remembers the five

    discogs have them listed:

    FN370 Hamish Kilgour 15th Anniversary Etching ‎(7", Etch, S/Sided) 1996
    FN371 Sean O'Reilly 15th Anniversary Etching ‎(7", Etch, S/Sided) 1996
    FN372 Chris Knox 15th Anniversary Etching ‎(7", Etch, S/Sided) 1996
    FN373 Alec Bathgate 15th Anniversary Etching ‎(7", Etch, S/Sided) 1996

    HA - I have that reaction to a lot of acts these days.. must be this younger generation and their lack of adhering to genre specific music naming conventions as assumed and taken for granted by older people

    I thought I liked Caribou most when he's Daphni and these latest tracks are ruining that preconception... and I still have a problem with his Manitoba guise purely cause of the name... bloody Canadians *shakes rush by the collar*

    To make it even more confusing the albums coming out on Drag City, further ruing my they do interesting indie stuff buzz

    to quote the goons... It's all rather confusing really

  • Hard News: Friday Music: A Strange Road,

    banning of Darren Watson's song just seems petty and silly... what next books?

    I've taken to following Mr Busnach cause of your incessant posting of his goods *shakes fist*... the Geraldine Superstar Cabaret remix of Lawrence Welk's Chicken Polka is pure class (well if polka, chickens and silliness is classy) - songs like this make me wish I still did radio (cue collective sigh of relief by hundreds)

    I'm picking Caribou for one of the best albums of the year, dudes a wicked producer

  • Hard News: Never mind the quality ...,

    if they are after comments they should get Shelley Bridgeman to write some politically charged columns - something like the best shoes to wear to a voting booth and why do we wear shoes anyway

    Does the Labour party have a comms team? A strategic team? Anyone with a clue...
    they really don't want to win do they?

    "and, apparently, never having been to a hip hop show before"

    this! If any young people followed the boring old news media... they'd have their suspicions confirmed -that "old" people really are quite weird

    Had the pleasure of hearing the Shihad album last night - wow its amazing and simply brutal... I've never been a fan of their output but this ones going into the collection for sure.

    I wonder if candidates can use signs

  • Hard News: The silence of the public square,

    Political interviews and debates seem to be about shouting over your opponent making snide comments, simplistic point scoring, being plain rude and saying anything that doesn't actually involve policy or often the actual truth - so while the outline of this meeting seems odd... the candidates might actually say something of value to those attending and actually answer the questions posed to them

  • Hard News: Friday Music: Curatin' for…,

    its been a week of pianos for me and without wanting to alarm piano purists (is there such a thing?) for me that means rave and happy hardcore. So I found DJ Slipmatt on Soundcloud and he has a truckload of mixes from recently and back in the day

    this 2013 Bestival (so would like to attend on of these) mix is a cracker - loads of classic house, rave, acid and other tracks mixed beautifully

    The Joy Orbison essential mix is another cracker

    and speaking of things chilly... a taste of the new Chills album via Fire Records

  • Hard News: The crybaby philosopher, in reply to David MacGregor,

    It’s a curious that ACT feel the need to say anything at all

    I'd suggest that with each utterance of stupid Act make will take attention away from the conservatives (their intellectual peers on the right) - this works for Act, their coalition partner and gifter of seats

    or perhaps he just can't help himself
