I guess unconciously one of the things that i look for in music regardless of melodies and exciting music is empathy, would i get on with this person on any level, are they fascinating at all? On this record at least, other records he's less hateable but i find it hard to get over the fact that he is such an asshole.

    listening to the radio for the past three days, (my hard-drives are dead) so it's been static, news from the US, classical, snatches of soul, dreary ol' rawk, but I've enjoyed all the raw garage.

    sorted some speakers/amp now and I've listened to the Wu-Tang Hits album, diggin Janet Jackson - All Nite, anything by Juan Maclean, outkast, the latest mayer, and hours of john peel that I brought on disc. And not enough house...

    that tune is wicked! do you like the second version with kano? also on that tip... the last track on the creeper tape. i don't know what it's called, but it's got that same choppy, crystalline glimmer. "all the time" i guess? those helicopter noises are off the hinges.

    Listened to Fennesz's "Venice" yesterday... the first half, at least, is kind of new age for hipsters, IMO.

    listening to the new villalobos cd again and i've got to say it is fantastic, i'm not a massive fan of minimaly techno but this is ace, really pulls you in, all shading and turning surfaces, funky and supple with the south american instrumentation of the first lp playing a very abstract part. It's lovely listening to it as the fireworks explode outside.

    Disc 5 of "The Complete Sonny Rollins Riverside & Contemporary Recordings." Kind of going into Rollins in-depth for the first time, flabbergastation is the dominant feeling.

    lots of dirty garage (in the old sense) - thee headcoats, thee headcoatees etc. a halfway decent album of Unitone Hi Fi remixes and the excellent Gangsta Blues album by Tanya Stephens..

    risto benji-'gi mi di money' / pinchers-'no borrow gun'
    ninjaman & gregory isaacs- 'tun to the father' (incidently, gregory's picture on this lp looks like the an 'after' image from the recent anti-drugs 'heroin makes you really ugly and mashed up' photo campaign)
