  • bob daktari,

    news of Steve Strange's passing today has me thinking back to my formative musical years... thanks to him and his peers I found the music of Frankie Knuckles many years later

    RIP

  • Patrick Xavier,

    Great Roy Colbert column. Mondegreens. The New Yorker recently attributed them largely to 'oronyms': "word strings in which the sounds can be logically divided multiple ways".

    Also the thing about Shayne not being especially clear in his enunciation. Until this week, I thought it was "And I quietly count with a gun ..."

    Courtesy of Gilles Peterson, tracing the history of London's Pirate Radio stations. These (and Peel) made me fall in love with radio. The chaos and freedom of the north and east London dub pirate stations was a joy.

    Dunedin Sound bites...

    Now I'm beginning to wonder if The Doublehappys
    really did have a song called Pig Fat Elvis

  • Mike O'Connell,

    Thought I'd throw this in the mix, The mystery of Mingering Mike: the soul legend who never existed.

    It's a fabulous story which I chanced upon about how avid 'crate digger' Dori Hadar hit the jackpot one morning in Washington DC, chancing upon 38 albums by a soul singer he had never heard of. This, from a guy with an encyclopedic knowledge and 10,000 records at home.

    If you happen to visiting the Smithsonian American Art Museum (in DC) between 27 Feb and 2 Aug you will catch the exhibition Mingering Mike’s Supersonic Greatest Hits.

    Yep, that was an excellent yarn.

  • Paul Rowe,

    This is just to say


    I was at
    The Southern Sinfonia
    On Saturday Night

    An which many of you
    Were probably
    Keen
    To attend

    It was uniformly wonderful
    As you might imagine
    So melodic
    And so moving
