Following on from the last video with ex-Disco Village man Thomas Bullock dj'ing and dispensing the mezcal to all and sundry, here he is back again behind the decks performing in mental fashion with artist Mischa Hollenbach of Australian design duo Perks and Mini ( available in the UK through cult store LN-CC). Whilst some may dismiss this kind of behaviour as ridiculous, I say why the hell not, and to my mind the crazier the better. All art is subjective and the more fun can be had in expressing yourself the better, perhaps another reminder not t take life too seriously... (bloody lunatics).

and I quote

Three quotes that made feel good recently:

"both tracks clock in around the 13 minute mark and head deep into total-nutball territory" - of the new Hieroglyphic Being release

'one audience member complained: "nooo, that's just too far out..." Thelonius Monk [also sat in the audience] replied; "yeah, but it swings"' - at a Sun Ra concert, early 70's

"I like music that takes you to the fucking edge, and just leaves you hanging there by the fingernails, contemplating death" - me, just now

Back in 2004 there were a few parties that we put on in the Disco Village. They didn't really set the town alight, however we enjoyed putting them on. We also recorded them and I came across the recordings in the archives when I was transferring some other stuff from minidisc. So from a historical reference here they are, warts n' all. A few nice tunes in there on occasion:

Back in the day, The Hideout ran a feature with DJ Cherrystones (Gareth Goddard/Godsy) where he led us on a suprise hide & seek vinyl spotting exercise where he posted a hint of an album cover with a few clues to lead us to his recommended tips. I don't think I ever quite spotted all of them but those that I did were exquisite jams of the highest order, that I'm eternally grateful for being turned onto. One was the soundtrack by Popol Vuh to Werner Herzog's Nosferatu (which was my introduction to Herzog's movies, I remember putting on Aguirre and being a bit bored at the beginning started doing some ironing but by the finale I was sat on the sofa, jaw wide open with the iron metaphorically burning down the house). Another was another film soundtrack-not soundtrack to the film El Topo by Jodorowsky. Again, my first introduction to his work and equally if not even more mindblowing. When it comes to weird shit, these dudes are class A. Anyhow, I dig these Polish film posters for Jodorowsky's work, so much with the Holy Mountain one I redid it myself (bottom)!
