NEW ON THE SITE THIS MONTH:
of a major overhaul, with some random photoshop fuckery and a load of
an old Augustus Pablo interview, some stills and other stuff added
to the section on the film Babylon and a new playlist. There's
even a hint at the long awaited Irie AAA historification project
if you look closely enough. Get to it this way.
of the month - some awesome archival audio from the Association
of Autonomous Astronauts.
the Madonna T.O.P.Y. connection:
sad say for Luther Blissetts everywhere:
IDENTITY! AGAINST GENDER! THOSE PESKY PISKIES!
Cornish pisky stories are full of instances of contact between two "planes,"
brought about either accidentally or by incantations, magic eye-salve,
or other means....But to dwell "in the beyond" is also to be part of imaginary
time, a return to the present to redescribe our cultural contemporaneity
- to reinscribe our human, historic commonality; to touch the future on
its hither side.... The machinery of power focussed on this whole alien
strain did not aim to suppress it, but rather give it an analytical, visible,
and permanent reality: it was implanted in bodies, slipped in beneath
modes of conduct, made into a principle of classification and intellibility,
established as a raison d'etre and a natural disorder...."

A new article
by Russ D of the Disciples on the culture of dubplates in reggae soundsystems,
including mp3s of some fiercely rare tunes. A great read:
FROM THE DESK OF MERRICK GODHAVEN:
the last 3 months I've been putting together 2 compilation CDs to raise
funds for the new activist centre in Nottingham. At long bastard last
On volumes 1 and 2, they're both over 70 mins long and only 6 quid each.
Volume one ('Sing Songs') is guitarsy lyricsy songsy oriented, and has
21 tracks including Julian Cope, Tom Robinson and Seize The Day.
('Electronica Exotica') is made of more instrumental, experimental, ambient
and atmospheric stuff, and has an exclusive track by the Legendary Pink
Dots as well as stuff from a dozen other artists including Foehn (ex-Third
Eye Foundation) and Julian Cope.
crew are very much in evidence on the discs, with Volume One featuring
Mahalia's song Pixie Work, Phagus' band Vehicle Derek, and a Radio Savage
Houndy Beasty track too. Volume Two has a new madder mix of Trousers by
The Botley & Dogdyke Veebic Warriors (ie Phagus and Jim from Spunkle).
