  • Hard News: Friday Music: Why Soulfest…,

    ...but what I’m most excited about is Tall Black Guy and John Morales at the DJ Stage.

    Gutted to be missing Tall Black Guy at Moon in Newtown, Wellington because I literally get into Newtown from Nelson about an hour too late. Doh!

    The just in: Underworld are playing at a new festival on April 8. It's called Oro and it's to be held in Woodhill Forest.

    If you like your electro dark and bassy, can highly recommend Underworld's Twenty Three Blue, an out-take from their last album, Barbara Barbara...We Face a Shining Future.

    Definitely. Seems like there have been a couple of instances on this one with cyclists travelling too fast past walkers as well but it's the absolute minority being used as an excuse for outright banning. Sharing is indeed caring.

  • Hard News: Paths and ways,

    Meanwhile Nelson, which is frankly a cyclists Mecca, isn't quite getting it right...

    This discussion of sound goodness probably needs a revisit to Mr Scruff's masterclass on setting up your club night. Beautiful stuff front to back.

  • Speaker: Talking past each other:…, in reply to Danielle,

    Danielle, in reply to Bart Janssen, about an hour ago

    I'm not entirely sure why anyone thinks I am advocating "doing nothing". I'm advocating "not doing this as it is currently proposed". I'm also advocating for less emotive doomsaying and more sensible, encouraging, logical things that might actually work.

    How very dare you! :-)

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

    Great stuff on the Brooklyn digs. I remember P-Money tweeting some great finds when he was working over there a few years. It's on my bucket list!

    Also, Laura Lee is a boss.

    Niceness. My man DJ Wrongtom has a "..meets the Ragga Twins" album coming out later this year. Expecting nothing less than wall to wall bangers.

  • Hard News: Fix up, young men,

    Remember when some genius decided to commemorate the 30th anniversary of Woodstock by staging a commercial festival on an ex-airforce base with Insane Clown Posse, Korn & Limp Biskit headlining? Carnage ensued with vandalism, sexual violence and a riot to finish the whole wretched event off.

    Laneway is the opposite of that but maybe it has something to do with the commercialisation and scale of these events? You see crass behaviour at large sporting events as well, maybe people feel like they can lose themselves and get away with behaviour they wouldn't in a small group or at smaller events. I really don't know.

  • Hard News: Bowie, in reply to Danielle,

    My husband and I are fucking sad as shit. I realised this morning this has catapulted right to the top of my personal Musician Death Sadness Rankings. I'm not sure how to create a proper post about this quite yet.

    I hear ya. The deaths of Bowie, Lemmy and John Bradbury (The Specials) all in the space of 2 weeks are like disparate elements of my youth breaking off and disappearing. Feels too soon for this.
