Music musings 15/4


Mixed bag of nonsense this week but some absolute amazingness. Best news of all first… The Bluetones & Wonder Stuff are touring again!! Not only that but the Wonder Stuff are playing the whole of ‘Hup’ touring plus all your favourites… how excited are Danny & Pavey gonna be about that eh?!!

So, Malcolm eh? What was John Lydon said via Danny Mitchell “For me Malc was always entertaining, and I hope you remember that. Above all else he was an entertainer and I will miss him, and so should you.” Dug out Madame Butterfly last week, such an odd record. The On-The-Fly mix is pretty great.

I won’t bang on about it too much as Ian’s written a great review of the amazing new Caribou single but it really is that fukkin good – the album is equally amazing, i’m posting Sun & Bowls on here… a favourite of Mr Joe ‘TWNR‘ Clay…album’s out Monday, buy it – it’s ace!

In my dull house they’re often a bit not quite there but I quite like em in my sunshine filled office this Junior Boys remix of Yoko Ono is rather nice. And it’s a free 320kps download on RCRD_LBL. Nice, nice.

I did not know this record existed – Engelbert Humperdinck – Lesbian Seagull – part of a thread about gays making better music than straights… anyway!

Don’t quite understand the point of this – DJ Dials & Lil Wayne remix of Joy Orbison Hyph Mngo. Sure Ian’ll have an argument against it!

So the whole LCD Soundsystem album was ‘leaked’ so they’ve put the whole thing up on LCD’s site – I haven’t actually checked the whole thing yet. Check it out proper here like.

Two things that made me happy whilst going through the Electrics mailer yesterday. This Omar S track which I’ve loved but had no idea who it was. Then the banger that is Sneak’s U Can’t Hide From Your Bud – unashamed filtered house… might dig that out for the weekend – I know Tendraw will appreciate it.

Off to Glasgow for the last but one Optimo *sniff* on Sunday – KXP are playing – check the rather nice Optimo Espacio mix.

And one final thing… the excellent Minotaur Shock with his lush mix of Gold Panda’s new single…

You (Minotaur Shock Remix) by Gold Panda

Don’t forget Record Store Day on Saturday! Oh and 3rd Party down the George of course.

Goodbye then.
