Don't Call Me Whitey...

Don’t Call Me Whitey…

Whitey) albums… The Light At The End Of The Tunnel Is A Train (16-track version featuring rare singles, b-sides, and lost tracks); the leaked but never officially released Great Shakes, including volume 2, described as “a sprawling buzzing genre collision that derailed...

Beck’s Record Club, INXS – Kick

Just re-discovered this… as the Record Club Beck and friends give themselves a day to cover a classic album decided on the day. Here are our favourite moments from their recording of Kick by INXS. Record Club No. 4 is here…! Joining in this time we had three of my favorite bands— Liars, Annie Clark and...
Nitetrax

Nitetrax

Archive of mixes from Nitetrax (owner of excellent Citinite label) that were originally broadcast on NTS Radio. Their most recent Minneapolis Special show inspired by the Wax Poetics issue dedicated to Prince is a particular favourite of ours.
Prince - Original Live Recording of Purple Rain (First Avenue 1983)

Prince – Original Live Recording of Purple Rain (First Avenue 1983)

Everyone knows this song backwards, right? But imagine yourself back in 1983, August 3 to be precise. You happen to be in Minneapolis at the First Avenue club where Prince is playing a benifit show for the Minnesota Dance Theater Company. Remember this is 1983, a whole year before the Purple Rain film and album are released;...

NY77: The Coolest Year In Hell (Watch)

NY77: The Coolest Year In Hell (Watch)

NY77: The Coolest Year In Hell tells the story of one of the most astonishing pop culture years in American history. New York City had fallen in decay and chaos. There were not enough jobs, not enough money, not enough police, not enough schools, and not enough social services. There was a city wide black...
Inside Lindstrøm’s Studio

Inside Lindstrøm’s Studio

A nice little look inside Lindstrøm’s studio courtesy of Anthem Magazine. What are these three keyboards? When did you get them? How often do you use them? The small one on top is the Yamaha DX-100, famously used by Roger Troutman (Zapp) with his talk box … or did he use a Minimoog? Anyway, it´s a nice...
Clare Fischer interview

Clare Fischer interview

Sadly the other week the musician Clare Fischer passed away. Now the name might not immediately mean anything to you… but Fischer, as well as producing over forty albums under his own name, is the man behind most of Prince’s unique orchestral arrangements from Parade (without a doubt our favourite Prince album) onwards. These include...
Les Rythmes Digitales live album

Les Rythmes Digitales live album

Sadly I have forgotten pretty much everything about how I came across this Les Rythmes Digitales live album. What I can recall is that it was official, Jacques Lu Cont (aka uber producer Stuart Price) put it together as an exclusive for some now defunct online mp3 store, and that he relished the opportunity at being able...
Tummy Touch Records 15th Anniversary mixtape

Tummy Touch Records 15th Anniversary mixtape

Here’s a special mix that we’ve finally finished just in time to catch the end of Tummy Touch records 15th anniversary year. This was a pretty epic undertaking for us, we started with well over 8 hours of music (and that was after we cherry picked) which we managed to edit down to the 80...
Casio MT-40 S-CAT build

Casio MT-40 S-CAT build

A few weeks ago we came across this video of an exquisitely built circuit bent Casio MT-40 synth (via J Saul Kane of DC Recordings) which comes with a total of 26 modifications. Now, the MT-40 (and it’s grey MT-41 successor) is a classic in its own right, mainly for single-handedly inventing the massively popular Sleng...
