  • Just before we went into the March 2020 lockdown, a friend of mine DJ'd a night with four other DJs.  They kind of had the concern of Covid at the back of their minds but again, didn't personally know anyone with it. A couple of weeks later, 4 of t…

  • Apropos of nothing, was thinking about what3words - they have mapped everywhere on earth into unique 3m x 3m squares and each one has a unique name - made of 3 words. You can reverse search by the words, so I was thinking... Slightly gutted there …
  • ketan said: 7. Happy Days will be rebooted but with a black cast.  How will black fonzy respond to the racism of the 50s?  The only white cast member will be Arnold. He will be played by Ralph Macchio. It will run for one season on netflix …

  • dizzybull said: Looks like I was 12 years too late with my thread.  Probably not on your radar until you have kids in the house.  Like swearing.  Wifey loves Skipworth and Turner "Thinking About Your Love" and the mix in her car starts wi…
  • Electrode said: I forgot about that Jane Birkin. That's a good one. St. Tropez' disco take on it - while it doesn't have the impact of the original - was popular too. There's a Thai version by a male duo called The Traces. They don't do the m…
  • Michael Franks - Sleeping Gypsy is one of his best.  A Bossa phase.  When Warners had budget and you could have string-section charts (with Claus Ogerman) and pick the best musicians to manifest your ideas.  "B'wana-He No Home" is melty.  Joao Donat…
  • ketan said: Sorry to hear this news, Jimster.  Glad you got to see her in peace before she passed.  Take care of yourself this holiday season, buddy.   Thanks Ketan.  It's kind of a load off now.  I know some friends who have folks in long …

  • Jimster said: Duderonomy said: As the time passes I'm finding it's that sense of "...oh, I should give dad a call - wait, nope" that's depressing. Unlearning good habits - that's the stinker.  Sorry to hear that L*o.  Same here.  Bee…

  • billbradley said: Fax - self titled [Bite Back, unknown year] Fax is Satu Redmond and Davy O'List (ex Foxy Music).  *Roxy They were a couple (That's them on the cover).  FAX was mid 80s.  Davy was/is a heavy guitar player.
  • dizzybull said: Sweet! my current likes are soul jazz, French shit, ambient jazz, songs in foreign languages with the word “sex” in the title, slowish disco, CUMBIA sextets, Latin music that’s not too Mexican, bosss nova with fender Rhodes a…
  • dizzybull said: I know this thread is for soccer and the existentialist threat that is the end of our meaningless existence but I wanted to ask: what do Brits think of The Crown? I’ve watched a few episodes here and there and it seems good t…

  • klezmer electro-thug beats said: Maybe it's because (especially in 2020 living conditions) I'm just in my own little bubble of music consumption, but it feels like there's a decent amount of rhodes and wurlitzers working their way into "real …
  • dizzybull said: I hate the dx7. Especially that digital piano sound. It ruined music. Why people ditched the fender rhoades for that crappy piano I’ll never know.  The Rhodes units are heavy to move from a to b and the tines suffer from m…
  • Duderonomy said: Also I think in general the perceived English saltiness about Maradona is exaggerated.  Think again.Naah, what's done is done.  There's the Ronaldo wink-off, the cun actor who got Beckham sent off, the Lampard four miles ove…

  • billbradley said: I got a mint stock copy of a 45 from that William Bell - Passion LP last week. Decent boogie. "Headline News" is what I got it for.  It was £15 back then in the 80s as an import.  Cheverton Records, Liverpool
  • I'm still missing a case full of picture discs and Northern 7"s.
  • More stuff I brought back home.  Waxon has dibbed some but holleur if you have an elevator in need of some Fuzak.  Need gone of all of it.  I NEVER HAD A MULLET/SIX-STRING BASS.
  • klezmer electro-thug beats said: Maybe this puts me even further into the minority but I would argue that if it's on beat, scratching in the context of a DJ mix doesn't have to be too advanced technique-wise. Not saying yours wasn't good BTW,…
  • Sounds like something Cream would have done.
  • Ohhh I know it.... But can't remember It. Yet.
  • Speaking of Gibson, I saw a review of Fatman which said the trailer was better than the film.  I dunno, I guess his ego is too big to express any kind of contrition in his work, but the way he flushed his reputation down the crappper, I'd have expec…
