this is definitely not a love song

Good news, finally

Public Image Limited will play Tripod in Irlanda town on friday, June 10… After their amazing performance at the electric plink-plink thing, this should be well worth the voyage.

Happy love day for those of you that are at that point

You’re rare as the yeti. Not quite as pretty…

This song came on today and the feel of it reminded me of a short article that I have supposed to have written for the last six months about the Irish Rocky Horror Picture Show. Just can’t bring myself to do it. Can’t figure why. Anyway, today was a less mental day than yesterday, which wouldn’t have been hard. Still something of a cool nature was missing….dotdotdot. Now, BEER!

also, check out Rotters Golf Club for Andrew Weatherall’s new Double Gone mix. They’re gggggrrrreaaa, fucking deadly! Also, Fight Like Apes play Tripod on Saturday 27th of November. Saw them at ElecPlinkPlink and they rocked the place. Seemed stupid that they were hidden away in a smaller tent, considering their media saturation. Apparently her mother is Kathy Sheridan from the newspaper of record. Whoda thunk?

shadows…all I see is shadow

for peoples who miss Pavement tonight, make sure not to miss DJ Shadow who is playing in Tripod on

Wanna buy me hat?

Monday 5th July. Never reached the heights of Endtroducing, but still a legend, even if he is permanently trying to sell you stuff. Watch out for a WalMart style merchandise section at the back on the night.

Apparently he’s between albums at the moment, so it’ll be a fairly fun mash up. The likelihood of seeing Stretch there is mostly dependent on my ability to find my favourite shades…They were last seen wandering around the village at 2.30 on Monday night. They were wearing a shiny blue Adidas hoodie, manky-grey tracksuit bottoms, a gold (not real gold) chain with the medallion saying WORD and may have been in the company of my black boots who were stark naked. If you come across these items, please beware, they are usually baked and you may not understand what they are trying to say to you. Godspeed!

Thought for the day: Lively Up Yourself or Ah dry up! (You choose)

am wet…need the sunshine to sunshine

OOOOOOOOn Feb19….I will be watching these peoples and bouncing up and down like my inferiors would like me to…tripod’s the place and cheap tickets and always good times guaranteed when ADF arrive

cultchamove me. Shine sun!

Maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s Laurent Garnier!

Stretch ici maintenant pour les peops.

Laurent Garnier est un musician/DJ francaise. Ne confusez pas avec la companie Laboratoire Garnier qui fait,

Quoi!? eh!? Quoi? Stupide

Quoi!? eh!? Quoi? Stupide

“Maybe it’s Maybelline,”  qui me fait pukey pukey quand je l’ecoute. Ugghhh.

Anyway, there is something that draws me to Laurent Garnier’s musique. A Parisien techno DJ by trade and founder of the legendary Hacienda club, his albums tend to be radically different. From crowd-pleasing anthems to concept albums, from house to trance to techno he is constantly evolving and seems to be comfortable in his work. Garnier is releasing a new album, Tales of a Kleptomaniac next month and will be playing live and Djing in aul Dubalin on the Monday of Paddy’s weekend. No doubt someone wearing a green hat and malevolent face will be in my fucking way most of the night. What’s a gibbon to do? Maybe I should leave the country for the weekend. Anyway, I’m not completely sure if Laurent Garnier can make you prettier but he certainly will have you in toe-tapping ship-shape and despite the prescence of career clubbers, it should be a great night.

Clubbers are a strange breed though, have always thought that. Those who are on something tend to think everyone is in the world that their minds have created. Those who aren’t tend to look really sulky and flop about chill-out areas a lot. By using a combination of the two sets we can create a Venn diagram (of course this is based on a night when the music is so bland that you could even respect Paulo Nutini (as a person, don’t get carried away)):

Under controlled circumstances, the outcome is always the same.

Here’s some Laurent to banish the annoying wankers away.

now here’s another gem. Haha, enjoy!
