Two's up

Whilst skivving off work I read two excellent and entertaining articles, the first a piece written by Dr Rob (of fame) is a city guide to Tokyo - however in Rob's inimitable way it turns into a description of the high's and low's of record nerds the world over...

The second article is an interview with the lovely Eddie Ruscha aka Secret Circuit involved in other projects too numerous to mention. I make no secret of the fact that I'm a fanboy of people like Eddie and Harvey but it's not that I am really into their music, productions or DJ sets, more just into their vibe, envious of their lifestyle and wish to be as totally chilled and dude-like as they appear to be. Plus this interview made me want to go and buy a million records which is probably a very bad thing (in a very good way). Funnily enough he's interviewed here by Dr Rob:

I Do.

I read once that sometimes you step away from the disco. Occasionally I step away, but generally remember that I need to disco once in a while. It's good for the soul, said Walter. You either do disco or you don't said Thomas. What is Disco, like balearic it's kinda hard to define as for some it's the philly sound, for some it's Berghain, monday AM. For others it's sweat dripping off the ceiling onto an Art Blakey record through an apricot haze or late 60's rock blasting out over the altar. I'm undecided, but I know that I do Disco, oh yeah, I do.

There's a party in the village this friday night (19th July), at CB2 (just off east road) called "The Love Below". It's from 8pm - 12am so get there early, they're just trying to make it nice, seen?
