  • Hard News: To defame and deflect,

    I've heard Key's "Hager's last allegations were categorically disproven" sound bite about 3 times across different media now, and not once have I heard a journalist ask him which allegations were the ones that were categorically disproven. He gets a free ride that allows him to set the agenda.

    I can attest to Robin Lambert's skill as a salesman in Sounds Unlimited - I would walk in, he'd recognise me, suggest 2 or 3 new arrivals to listen to, and I would inevitably leave with what I'd been intending to buy AND the 2 or 3 he'd played for me. I was only ever a weekly visitor, but he still knew who I was when I went in there - it was almost like having your own personal record buyer.

    A Minister for Sauntering would suit the talents of many in this current mob.

    Swaggering, surely?

    Russell, I’m bitterly disappointed at your failure to tell everyone that DJ Max Key is in the house

    Listen to them here

    If that's what the kids are in to these days, I'm quite pleased I'm a curmudgeon.

    CJM, if there's such a thing as a standing ovation in the online world, you've just got one from me.

    While you are in there don’t forget all The L.E.D.s back catalogue is now available at Flying Out, too!

    I managed to get physical artifacts of all of those – I work with an ex-L.E.D. :D Edit: except for Dunes, which is digital-only :sadface:

  • Hard News: Friday Music: Tramadol Rock,

    Oooo a Jakob tour - I checked them out a while ago after a mention either here or from Amplifier or Flying Out, and loved what I heard. Here's hoping they have actual CDs and things for sale, because I'm pretty much still a physical artifact kind of guy. I'm even enjoying the vinyl renaissance (while quietly ignoring the second life cassettes seem to be having - anyone who's buying cassettes nowadays never bought them back in the day, had them jam in a car deck, had them randomly stretch, had them snap, or just twist so you had to dismantle the cassette to untwist them - nah, not going there again)
