    Tune ID, please.

    89/90 UK(?) house track. Stuttering (gated?) sample, big bass, slowish breakbeat "Gotta-rock-gotta-rock-gotta rock to the drum and bass" Any thoughts?

    D&B Track ID

    I've been trying to find a D&B track that I remember hearing on Grooverider's show back in the day. It samples the four guitar notes from Pink Floyd's Shine On You Crazy Diamond. - even though it uses the same sample, because I'm pretty sure '99 was way too late. I also think it was an Amen...

    Rather a luddite question this. What kit do I need? I have a turntable and a mac book pro (and records, obviously). What if I wanted to flow tracks into one another to create single MP3 files?

    Newish House/Techno LP's I should own

    My listening habits don't allow for 12"s. So: I've picked up the Pantha du Prince album on Dial and I love it. I have the Mattius Aguayo album too. Theo Parrish's Sound Sculptures Vol 1 is one its way to me. I have a taste for the melifluous and melodic. Where next?

    Veg Watch

    In already: First early new pots (Anya). Anticipating bumper crop like last year. No real worries here. Little Gem lettuces (from seed). Rabbits a real threat. Am I just laying on a buffet for them? Drove tractor-mower 1/2 mile on public road to fetch manure this morning after last year's...

    I'm staying with friends in South Africa. We're under seige by a troop of Baboons. Twice I've found the alpha male crouched on the kitchen counter working his way through the fruit bowl. Despite being threatened with a large stool and shouted at, he will not leave until he's polished off the...

    In need of a page turner or two

    12 hour flight coming up so in need of a wicked page-turner to pass any time not spent grappling with children. To paraphrase Kingsley Amis: If the opening words aren't "A shot rang out...." I'm not interested.

    Only sulight that's filtered through the earth's atmosphere will hit the moon, lending it a reddish, Martain glow. Perhaps a chink in the clouds will give us Brits a glimpse.

    American Pastoral

    I'm nearing the end of this and it's torn into me in a way no other book has before. As a father and part of a family its frightening. As someone who's always valued comfort and been non-confrontational its sobering Generally it/s put the wind up me. Anyone else have a similar or very...
