Is That Your Dad?

January 3, 2007


So 2007 got off to a rather splendid start for myself, spending all day on the pish in Camden, nominally to catch The Rapture djing at the Lock Tavern but I don’t really recall whether they did actually , was nice to see Casper Fluokids though.

I’ve also struck upon a genius marketing tool – defacing an old vice t shirt by scribbling somewhat wonkily “My Only” and “Is Slutty Fringes” either side of the vice logo – I’m gone get some proper tees printed up (perhaps)

nuff of that nonsense, Sick Of Nature are starting a new night at the Half Devil in Old Street (otherwise known as 333) called Pick Up The Pieces with the first night on the 12th January – and it is a bit special, with Tigerbeat 6 taking over the main room (knifehandchop & drop the lime people!) and Infants are also djing – plus in the basement hot tip for 2007 Zilla is doing his dancehalltechstepglitchhop thing.

Zilla’s mixtapes are a thing of legend, and he has kindly let me put his mad limited (100 copies in the world) One Foot In The Fire, One Fist In The Air mix from 2003 for download (Erol Alkan booked Mister Zilla to play at Trash after hearing this mix)

It blew me away when I first heard it and still makes me guffaw with delight whenever I stick it on. One glimpse at this tracklist should engender similar reactions in you.

Hello again heheh, theres a few more tracks at the end of the mix that are missing from this list, but the internet is not being very friendly.

Zilla One Foot In The Fire, One Fist In The Air (84mb)

On the topic of splendid mixtapes, my good friend, phoebe cates enthusiast and talented producer and record player, Mr Wrongtom, is on the cusp of releasing an extremely well crafted mix cd called Cassetiquette. He very nicely sent me a promo copy back in at the start of December and it has been duking it out with the new LCD Sound System album for most listens on my ipod over the past few weeks.

If you head over to his Myspace page, you can get a wee teaser of what to expect come it’s release. For me I think it’s gonna be one of the best mixes you will hear in 2007. I will be playing records at Hot Sauce, 93 feet east, with mr wrongthomas on Saturday the 27th January in the Pink Bar. Expect lots for buff scenester music for c*nts, it should be a hoot!

    Loved this. I didn’t hear Uffie, Justice, or any of those regulars, which is a change. My fave’ was the text-to-voice version of BIG’s Hypnotized. Amazing. Thanks for the post. It’s not too chill and not too hard, just right for a productive day.

    I’m afraid 333 has closed down now, so that night won’t be happening. I was looking forward to playing that one as well!

    The main names will still be playing around the corner at the Macbeth though!

    Good to see you too the other night šŸ˜‰

    This is just amazing, I am not even noticing some differences because it’s all so seemless. Puts together some of my memories into one mix! Thank you
