  • Hard News: Friday Music: Digging in New York,

    didn't get to bottom before blabbing so plus one on Bill Sevesi - he was practically a genre unto himself - and cool news about K Rd, I'll be getting along.

    also, last time I looked there were two euro disco 7s in the groovy bin that had your name all over them.

  • Hard News: Friday Music: Digging in New York,

    yeah man, bleeding thumbs (always the inside corner at the back of the right hand nail...ouch) digging is a beautiful thing - only equalled by perching in a pub afters to flip through the finds, scour the covers and wonder what they sound like. that's bliss. until you clock on to what you left behind. then, argh.
    and a box of them 7s you say???

  • Hard News: Music: All this and some…,

    there's a fair whack of interesting/ eh? stuff that came out of former Soviet states. Dos-Mukasan were in Kazakhstan - this clip is 26 minutes or so of sorta downbeat surf/ ska (really).
    the opening few minutes feature some cool, black and white, narrated footage of the life and times in wherever the hell it was they were living with an odd emphasis on scientific equipment then the party really kicks off at 11.50 mins. a dour bunch but I'm sure they were the life and souls after few fermented yak milks, and check out the venue at 23 and a bit mins, sweet lighting.

    oh bollocks to that, it was a great idea and I suspect Bowie would have enjoyed the joke.
