BARELY BREAKIN’ EVEN STEVEN

February 27, 2012

Mucho love today to BBE Records.  Not only are they one of my favourite labels, but they now hold even higher stock in my musical portfolio, as they are sending me a bag of goodies because I won a competition on Strongroom Alive this afternoon. I first fell in to the scene after I began […]

SUNDAYS WITH SPESHINALD

February 26, 2012

Having just waved off a frequent house guest hailing from Luton (she had to leave, she was too gangster for Brooklyn), I’ll kick off with my favourite track from the towns next best export.  Swiftly followed by the perfect Velvet song to get back in to bed with on a lazy day.  And finally finish […]

SUNSHINE SUPERMAN

February 25, 2012

Bonjour mes enfants The boy is back from a well-earned break in the French Caribbean.  To quote Ferris, “it is so choice, if you have the means, I highly recommend” going. Considering I was probably happier than I’ve ever been (the rum and cigars were free), my holiday playlist was beautifully morbid in places. A […]

DEEJAY, PLAY A SONG FOR MY LOVER

February 16, 2012

  Belated Valentines post.  If I’m honest, having seen this on Sunday, I almost lost that loving feeling.  I did still, however, find it in my heart to arrange for a Madagascan Hissing Cockroach, currently residing at the Bronx Zoo, to be named after Mrs Speshinald, just in time for the 14th of Feb. Deep […]

TRADER VIC’S TAVERN BAND

February 13, 2012

If ever you find yourself brought before the International Criminal Court and have a bit of time to kill in Den Haag, I recommend a little riki-tiki at Vavoom.  The cocktails are immense, and to boot they play the kind of music that makes you want to step outside the tavern and sort the wheat […]

FROG ROCK FRIDAY

February 10, 2012

I used to live, in France.  Even had my own band, though half of our line up leaned more towards psychopathic than psychedelic. Now I live in the Big Apple.  The first song down below has taken special place in my heart since seeing this late last year.  Marie’s version isn’t a patch, but still […]

IGNORANCE IS ZITS

February 8, 2012

Three killer tunes that played a big part in my musical youth… The Farm’s Stepping Stone, Primal Scream’s Slip Inside This House (never understood a word Gillespie was on about mind, always thought he was singing “slip inside the house, like Hugh Hefner”), and Ride’s How Does It Feel To Feel?. As a spotty adolescent […]
