While lighting the fire this morning I found an article in a Times mag about the top 30 albums of the last decade, so it's on the wall and is our playlist for the next few days.
We are working from 30 to 1. Not everyone's cup of tea, but a nice exercise. I have got a couple that I really not looking forwards to, and some that are great, but very slow for a busy day.
You can see what we're listening to right now over here on last.fm
**Update: this is the list we're listening to.**
A friend gave me pink punks second album last week to listen to on the bike fest.
Amazing angry poetry dealing with most of the worlds ills set to a track to rage trails to.
The "advertising" track has Bill Hicks voice on it, and the money raise from the track goes to the Bill Hicks foundation for wildlife rehabilitation.
And Yap the poet rapper also sings some great folk.
I came across this great story and website. I wish these guys would come ambling into my local.
We would love to know if anyone has seen them. We might have to see if they would mind stopping in the Carnaby St store next time they pass by.
I first saw his work for Lo Recordings, in collaboration with Non-Format. He made these miniature cardboard models for the release of Jean-Jacques Perrey & Luke Vibert's album Moog Acid. If you're familiar with moog synthesisers then you'll probably enjoy this link here. You can visit Dan's site here.
Friday afternoon’s Throwdown Threes has ended up as a collaboration. We have just gone live with our new brainfood site which has absorbed the old think and community content and made it more accessable and easier to navigate. On top of that, Paul and Aron are off on a Surf Tour to sort out stuff for the next catague and everyone in Cardigan is working their backsides off with one thing or another, in a word it’s busy. The new catalogue has just arrived and the website has been giving our crew in the office a headache. There has been some bloody hard work put in by Chris Wash up at Matt&George in the city of London and Jon Heslop down in the shed in the Cardigan HQ to get brainfood live and we are a little fried but very happy. I’m leaving these two in charge of the decks for the afternoons DJ session whilst I go and have a lie down. Thanks chaps. Hope you all have a great weekend. At howies we will, we’ve all earned it.
