2014 has been a bit, well, crap really for me. Still working on my busted-ass PC & more stuff at work to sort.
Anyway, a delve through my archive from my youth, is this from my days as a young, eager thing.
Enjoy &Happy New Year. Here’s hoping you all have a great 2015 – go get everything you want to come true 😉
Can’t believe it’s been over a year since my last post!
Sorry if it seems I’ve been asleep or negleting you; it’s just been a bit hectic; honest!
Let’s see what’s been going on:
- I survived Eurovision!!
- For me, this involved earplugs & Twitter; others may have used copious quantities of alcohol – this is a risky strategy, given the capacity for drunken tweets.
- Did BPM this year – again; this time ran into some old friends from home….yes!!Had at least a couple of issues sorting through stuff on Mixcloud, but found some old faces-cool.
- I’ve yet to post stuff up on Mixcloud – my PC’s played up & just got it back. I ned to do a re-install (d’oh!), but have backed everything up (YES!)
Should really try to get sorted, but you know, it’s good to be back….
40 years ago, hip hop was born in a house party in the Bronx by a Jamaican with a monster sounds system.
20 years ago today, this very day, strange noises were emanating from a small basement bar in Wolverhampton. I can’t believe it was THAT long ago. From a small night in the West Midlands to a regular fixture in people’s calendar from all over.
Tim, the Original Gang of 4 kind of made history; we all did.
Started as an idea during the Acid Jazz thing in the 90’s, but providing an alternative, expanding vision to that trend.
I struggled to find a way to mark this occasion. No recording exists of that night, unfortunately – it was fantastic.
I did find a recording, the earliest I could f ind, made 2 months after we opened.
I’d dedicate this to everyone, the crowd, guest DJs ,our regulars, everyone who worked there – you all made it unique & special.
Hopefully, over the months, I’ll find more stuff from, the archive…………..
