It'll be fun and games for sure with a free and easy attitude and a crew of fine DJ talent onboard.

NYC circa 83 from The Tube

Walking through the scene as it was in 83 taking in Arthur Baker (great interview), Paradise Garage, CBGB, Danceteria and The Roxy (going off - with Rod Stewart in the house!), Bambaata, Nona Hendryx, B-Boys and many more. It superbly lift's the lid on the NYC scene at the time. Jools Holland and Leslie Ash showing us around the various spot's depicted so well in Last Night a DJ Saved my Life. Really great to see. Big thanks to a sharp eyed Jeff Daniels for spotting this one. Enjoy

Some special shiz

I have been away for a bit - getting married and honeymoon - we had a hell of a party and totally went for it with Greg Wilson playing at our reception. Brilliant times!

Anyway the stuff I have to post has kind of popped up on the ipod or old cd I put on looking for suitable background music for the wedding breakfast.

Here goes:

A superb intro glides you sneakily into a track that wouldn't normally raise a lot of interest from me. I remember the days when my friends and djs would cover labels to avoid prejudice toward this kinda track. It's a superb remix of Erasure - Ship of Fools. Give it a whirl.

ship of fools (shiver me timbers mix)

Again a mainstream artist has caught my attention, Ashley Beedle has doe a sublime job on one of Elton Johns best. The original was caned by the Aficionado crew, mainly Moonboots I believe, there was a release and top ten chart success, so I guess Ashleys mix was commissioned then. I'm just glad it was!

R U ready For Love

Here's another corker much more underground this time Renegade Soundwave have never let me down, here's a classic sampling INXS to fine effect. From their In Dub Album I give you, Deadly - RSW

Okay so there's a load of retro for ya, maybe I should include something a little fresher....maybe not. Here's another 80's band that I really loved at the time. The Smiths were sarcastic and antagonistic, with Vegetarian slogans and Morrissey's strange sexual appetite. Their music was what made me like the band - the other thing was their album artwork, they were great covers weren't they? The politics were a bit tiresome, but I never really took it seriously anyway.

Here's Allez-Allez's edit of The Smiths - Barbarism begins at Home - (great title!)
