Back in a few weeks... x

Recommended this week

Ignore the glut of shit re-edits this week and check out some original music. This CD from Harmonious Thelonius is the nuts, mental african techno.

 New label from Shackleton and a new 12". 'Man on a String' is the single and 'Woe To The Septic Heart' the label - nasty, grooving with a sack of funk in the trunk.

We saw Dieter Moebius in the Disco Village a week or two back, here one of the nordic gods has a crack at some of his work.

New material from Antibalas man Chico - latin styled boogie funk, our man Andrew at earcave (www.earcave.com) has the LP...

Double treat for listeners today, cut from the same cloth and matured slightly differently, here's one treat from the Disco Village and one from that there Manchester. The first session is from yours truly, electronic beats from the street to the club - play very loudly, mind the acid and don't forget to freak your funk. The second is from Joey Huavon, a young hustler who's a danger to himself and those around him, don't let the chilled music fool you!

Random link of the day

The guys on my music geek forum hipped me to this, it's a very clever idea - a page of embedded youtube's that you can conduct like an orchestra - give it a go!

More scenes from the Disco Village:

Hardy Times

My name is Andy and I love Francoise Hardy, there I’ve said it- the rest of this should be easy.
There are so many reasons I love Francoise Hardy, but one of them is that most of her lp sleeves are beautifully designed and a joy to look at. Try these:

Now for the music, songs of heartbreak and loss, breathily sung by a beautiful French lady and soaked in strings. Francoise worked with amongst others Serge Gainsbourg, Jean Claude Vannier and Gabriel Yared  so you get lots of classy sounds, however I find some of her stuff to be hit and miss, but the good is very good and as a bonus the lps are pretty much charity shop/jumble sale/boot fair staples. Here are some of my favourites

“Le premier bonheur du jour “

A duet with Jane Birkin- “Comment Te Dire Adieu”


 “Message Personnel” (sung in English)

The above lp is fantastic and contains a lovely version of Neil Young’s “Till The Morning Comes”
Another reason for loving Francoise is her effortless style

And one last one…
