pah! you young ones don't remember the flame wars of yore. the cold rationalist purges, the christmas massacre... many a decent soul flew into them, with good intentions blazing, only to never return. automated birthday greetings on the homepage as their only memorial.

Whatever happened to Pearsall? I saw him in the pub once. Someone told me he'd thrown all his jungle 12"s in a skip, gone back to the US and become a Mormon.

not sure. he used to write (very good) grime pieces for my site but then about 3-4 years ago he disappeared from here. he might still have a blog up though.

edit: here we are http://sonicrampage.org/blog/ busy, actually.

The sadly departed Toccowich once hacked out an article on this very theme:

no, nothing as dramatic as that, I just went through a bit of a difficult period personally, and then I didn't really get back into blogging/forums afterwards. no Mormonism, though. or thetans, for that matter!

as Paul says (and apologies for the disappearing act, by the by), I have a new(ish) blog at www.sonicrampage.org/blog

you're joking aren't you, there wouldn't be any link between the paranoid mispelt ramblings of a mentally ill danish man and the fact that a samsung phone has an almost similar name.

thanks, yeah, I'm very good. Still in London these days (although I'm probably moving to Edinburgh in September), married, gainfully employed (useful in these times) ... can't complain!

hope you are good too, dude

In Techno, any mention of Richie Hawtin. It's so, so tiresome.
