my original intention was to contribute to the "overwhelmingly joyful music" thread. however, my list of joyful dance records from the 89/90/91 era kept getting longer and longer and longer . . . .
so i decided to start my own list posing as a thread -------->

i ask because i am trying my hand at managing rock bands
doesn't matter if you are in the states, the uk or elsewhere in the world
and though it is always nice to send promos to established critics who write for print publications, active bloggers would also be good . . . .
so if you have an...
something that i have gotten wind of around here is that brits perceive american rock as superior to uk rock. evidently, american bands have better drummers, and they rock more intensely. or at least, this is my understanding of how the story goes.
HOWEVER, i have always in the main preferred...
there will be a manchester hacienda party tonight at the Kion bar, located at 509 East 6th Street b/w A and B in the east village. this should be a LATE one, starts at around midnight, but should last until about 8 am or so down in the basement. my friend renochild and some other person are...
hey dissensus people --
i think some of you might find it worthwhile to visit nublu on SUNDAY nights. i just happen to be the early dj (9:30 to 12 slot), but that is neither here nor there, as i don't mix or anything, and i've been resorting to a lot of post-punk-ish music (i call it...
you know what i mean, the sounds that inspired t-coy's "carino"
i want the real dancefloor-centered stuff from the 60s and 70s
so where to begin?
stand-out records that i should have my eyes and ears open for?
what are the classics of the genre?
with reference to this
and of course this (though, with embarrassment, i've yet to pick up the book)
isn't the disappearance of black bands the main reason for the lack of dialogue b/w white indie rock and black music over the past 20 years or so???

yes, i've had em for a while now
can't take a girl home b/c i have no bed or furniture, which i got rid of b/c of the infestation
but even though i sleep on floor, have waved the proverbial white flag, the bugs continue to torment me
slum landlord totally non-responsive
this building is such...
i can no longer deal with all these crates of records on my floor
is there an easy consumerist solution? perhaps wooden modules that can be mail-ordered via the internet?
or must i build my own shelves or contract with a friend who can?
any and all suggestions appreciated
i realize this is not the most sporting of questions, and dissensus may well not be the appropriate forum for the question, but what do people reckon are the top 20 or so house tracks post-1992? let's say broadly within the "deep house," "trad garage" and "nu disco" categories . . . .
got sent this link for myspace page devoted to the city of hulme, w/ emphasis on late 80s acid house scene. rather interesting . . . .
and the more expansive website = www.exhulme.co.uk
after much fiddling about, editing links and such, here's the posting =
I expect most people on Dissensus are anti-imperialists, and so may well greet news of deep cutbacks in u.k. naval fleet and capabilities as good news. As for myself, I'm at a point where I'm neither for or against...
i've just read "the green man" by kingsley amis. wonderfully entertaining, and the first of his books that i've read
much prefer him to martin, whose books i've read several of, until i got hopelessly bogged down in "london fields" and swore never to bother with him again
any other titles by...
