Back in Brighton, at the opening of a new letting agency... i'm sitting in the office whilst people flit around me, drinking wine and chatting. Dear reader, can you tell that this is the week that i've decided to stop hitting the bottle? *takes out frustration on keyboard*
Rah! This video has turned up again on the interspazz. Some of the most genuinely heart-stopping breakdance moves EVER. It's not as good as the first one (might be in the archives somewhere, i'll go look) but it deserves your undivided attention nonetheless.

Gah. I have a cold.
On the positive side though, someone's just delivered some free pizza to the studio.

Ok, last word on the John Peel thing. Other people have made far more eloquent tributes to the great man, so i'll leave it to them (when I tried to do it on-air yesterday, my voice almost went..)
So, this list serves as evidence of his catholic tastes, his willingness to champion the underdog and his dogged pursuit of musical excellence. Want to pay tribute? Then do what he would have done: listen to something out of the ordinary. Go on, that one song might lead you somewhere you'd never expected. That's the whole point of this.
Favourite MP3 blog (*points down*) of the moment is Bubblegum Machine. It's got that open-eyed sense of wonder about music that's a prerequisite for me....
And after all the soul-searching yesterday with the sad news about John Peel, that sense of wonder is an important thing indeed.

Polar opposites are what keeps me going, musically speaking. So, one half of my brain has been reeling under the weight of some fabulous Japanese minimal Glitch-Techno , and the other side has been 'aving it large with the most strident Grime anthem of the year.(Lethal B - Forward Riddim..'bout halfway down the page)
And also, on an unrelated point, I performed onstage, Friday night, with Dead Men Walking. That's me, a Spear of Destiny and a Sex Pistol, on the same stage.

Been rocking some serious prog goodness as well. I sort of...reversed into Be Bop Deluxe. Started off way more interested in Red Noise and just drifted backwards.
Sorry about that. Look, i've been busy, honest. One of the reasons is undoubtedly MP3 Blogs: I stumbled across one, checked the links section...and, well..that was it. Lost in a labyrinth of blogging musical heaven. What's nice about MP3 blogging is its responsible attiude towards downloading: MP3's aren't up for long, and always come surrounded by links suggesting ways of either getting more info on the featured artist or buying their product. This is the future: count on it.
