Wonderful to see so much Vini here.

Anyway:

Main replay for me this week has been Blur - Magic Whip. I reckon it's pretty good, quite downbeat. Some of the songs are burrowing into my head now, particularly "Go Out" which is a cracker.

V/A - Jamaican Explosion (MOJO)
V/A - Return To The Star Club (MOJO)

fitting near juxtaposition?

The Disco Inferno has just been rereissued as In Debt which has been expanded on its original form. It came out as a cd some time in the mid 90s. I always loved the Meat puppets meet Joy Division on echoplex sound of that early stuff.

In Debt also adds the Entertainment single. Not sure what the extra track is but just seen it reviewed as a new release in one of the recent monthlies.

I saw them at the White Horse in Hampstead sometime around the turn of the 90s when they were supporting the Whipping Boy who were also signed to Ché records around the time.

Yeah, keep meaning to check the extra track, I have the 90s In Debt. Saw them in 94, one of the best gigs I ever went to.

Yowza! This week has been mostly....

John Foxx and Louie Gordon - Crash and Burn/ Sideways
Bought the deluxe editions from the annual John Foxx christmas clear out super cheap a few year back, not played em' much, but out and about in the sunshine,
they have been a great soundtrack. No-one quite does electropop like ole' Foxxy. Guess I'd consider these albums more EBM than the earlier stuff but enjoyable non the less.
Crash and Burn - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPL4ssg8BL4
Ultraviolet/Infrared - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=icFfwLN6a2E

SFA - Radiator
My second fav SFA record. I like most of their output, but for me, it was diminishing returns after the first two albums, and their popularity grew, if I'm honest. Radiator - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GStpfcmxT8

Robert Ashley - Automatic Writing
Apparently this was a big influence on my fav Nurse With Wound album 'Spiral Insana', and listening back, I can see that. Lovely bit of ambient word interplay. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9RMZSU07gts

Coil - Megalithomania (Live Conway Hall 2002)
Found an old programme of the event whilst rooting about and it reminded me I'd not played this piece of ambient weirdness in quite some time. I remember it being quite a strange and subdued live performance.
I've since read that Sleazy and Jhonn were on the cusp of their final break up, and things were tense between them to say the least. It's basically a 40 minute rendition of 'The Universe Is A Haunted House', but with other samples etc, and renamed 'Drip Drip'.
Also remember Mount Vernons Astral Temple playing too, was a great day.
Drip Drip - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uA1UoyYV8SM

Mission Of Burma - On Off On
Rattling great comeback record from the early 2000's
Album - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=anvMx2asvHo&list=PLFD9BA62CFCC9DB26

Sonic Youth - Washing Machine
Not one that gets a spin that often these days, but enjoyable enough when it does.Gotta be in the right mood for the Diamond Sea though, it does go on a bit. WM -https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wPPhifmRoA

Julian Cope - Followers Of...
Do enjoy this mid career cobbled together comp. Full of great B-sides, covers and those 80's 12"/extended mixes. 'Warwick The Kingmaker' is still one of my fav' Cope tracks. Warwick - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXqEr7tOi_k
Shot Down (Live) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WI4vRBb7a6I
Non Alignment Pact - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ML6WiKiywek

Watched a crappy buddy cop film called 'War on Everyone' the other day, It's an OK film, bit like Nice Guys, but this one song used in the soundtrack blew me away.... Catherine Spaak - Non è niente (1964)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8XNvRABkuk&index=7&list=PLDmbDYrcrKvb-3fIODSLUL_oGzPzv1ynH

Anyhow, have a great (short) break y'all

The Fall - The Unutterable. Still sounding great. Love the production on this.

Brian Eno - The Shutov Assembly, Nerve Net. Seems to me that the latter seems to get overlooked in Eno's great pantheon of work which is a shame as I love the production on it too. Nerdy meets dancey - love that combination in this work at least.

The Editors - The Back Room. Pretty reasonable debut album, though they went off the boil soon after judging by what I've heard

Cluster & Eno - S/T

Velcro Hooks - S/T. Liking what I've heard so far. Garage pop psych.

Grails - Chalice Hymnal. Suitably impressed with this latest offering. I would describe their music as soundtrack instrumental psych

Oh yeah, me too. He has made some great b-sides over the years and that is definitely up there with the best.

Great choices, with you on Nerve Net, I think it's one of his best from the 90s.

I saw Editors the week their 2nd single was released, they were brilliant, really intense. Nice lads too, they hung around to sell merch and chat afterwards, somewhere I have a poster all four signed for me.

I enjoyed their second album too, for the most part. Diminishing returns for me since then.
