Pick A Trick

March 24, 2009

Housewives favourite DJ wrongtom aired his ten minute All Time Top 100 mix on Xfm show The Remix last weekend which does exactly what it says on the tin, cramming some 100 tracks into ten minutes putting to shame those DJs amongst us that prefer the drawn out segue between tracks.

Being the nice sort, Thomas gave Slutty Fringe the download dibbs on the mix and also agreed to add his nominations to the hallowed Favourite Musical Haircuts feature which are more considered than some previous participants.

1. Papoose:

These guys were pretty special as individuals but like a barbershop Voltron they formed one of the most glorious hair bands to ever grace the music industry. Looking like a curious combination of Bowie, Eno and Kiss featuring a War song in French and gate-fold cover with pics of them having their hair done “Les Amants Outangs Moi Tarzan Et Toi Jane” was, as Howard Scott might say ‘slept on,’ which is exactly why Papoose deserve their Keratin crown more than most.

2. David Hinds (Steel Pulse):

In 50 years the dread-lock has gone from being one of the most majestic and often fearsome of styles to a vehicle for upsetting your parents when you come home after your first semester at uni. Tarquin and his rosy-cheeked peers probably wouldn’t be familiar with the term blanket dread but it marks a distinction between conviction and “going up Camden to get my dreads done,” and no one did the blanket better than David Hinds who went from sporting the tree of life in the 70’s to tying a beach ball sized lock to his head last time I saw him.

3. Dez Dickerson (The Revolution):

Prince and entourage have ever been a source for great moments in hair, a high point being the cover of his eponymous album featuring a soft bouf and moustache combo offset on the back by riding naked on a Pegasus. Some however may have noticed the quiet confidence of Dickerson’s luscious locks in the Revolution days, coming off like the Prince Regent of sex-funk. If you missed it Citinite released his excellent “Modernaire” single last year having sat on a shelf for 25 years

4 Howard Scott (War):

We can trace the use of ‘slept on’ in black music to the release of “The World Is A Ghetto.” I often wonder what Scott got up to the previous night as he scowls at the camera next to his fresh faced band mates.

5. Kid Rock:

Years before he was sound-tracking date rapes and murdering the already long-dead Lynyrd Skynyrd, young Rock was working with BDP affiliates and chipping away at the ozone in an attempt to give Kid N Play a run for their money in the hi-top stakes. Like Judd Nelson in New Jack City but one louder.

  5. ryan Says:

    always nice to hear people use computer equipment to mix shit together. i mean, does anyone spin vinyl anymore? i’m so sick of all kinda crap like this. wow, it’s really hard to mix shit when you use programs that do it for you. this is stupid. goodbye crappy blogs. and crappy techno. i long for the day when people like josh wink and george acosta get their true due.

  6. ryan Says:

    plus, just because you use the “1, 2, 3, 4” from outkast “hey ya” DOES NOT mean that you “mixed” it into your set. this sucked balls. i bet you hang out with ‘girl talk’ and ‘ludichrist’ don’t you?

  7. wrongtom Says:

    well it definitely said “outkast” on the record as i “mixed” it in

    and i don’t hang out with girl talk, they don’t like me cos i still play vinyl

  8. herse Says:

    MURKED SON!

    yeah I hate crappy digital computer DJs like you Thomas. I bet you think ‘digging’ is something you do in the garden with a spade.

    šŸ˜‰

  9. wrongtom Says:

    i thought it was a TLC song, can’t be sure though – only got the mp3


  10. Damn Wrongtom – why wont you play some proper techno like the Josh Winks (he did that higher state tune)and George?!?!?

    i bet you just did this on your iphone on the bus.

  11. kingcannibal Says:

    needs more vinyls

  12. Robot Man AIDS Says:

    Ryan – i think the fact it sort of mentions there’s a 100 tracks in 10 minutes should have gave you a slight inclinking of what this mix might be before you had listened to it…
    As for does anyone spin vinyl anymore?
    Well Josh Wink doesn’t…

  13. big hairy monster Says:

  17. MistaTwist Says:

    Ryan: You are a twat. Please remove yourself from the gene pool, or at least go and watch Tom do his thing on the decks, he’s an awesome DJ, so until you actually know who and what you are talking about:
