This was announced last week and might be interesting to some. I've been aware of the book, but without it being translated into english it might as well not have existed

http://laurentgarnierbook.com/#

so gives me an excuse to post this. Might have done so before but it's timeless so no harm with double posting Wink

Bio, I have registered for the pre-order of the Laurent Garner book and await with interest.  Been a fan for a long time and on a 5 hour round bus trip to Belfast today for a tutorial this popped up on the iPod funnily enough...


Link


and from my album of last year...


Link


When I got home I cooked dinner listening to Craig Charles' joyous funk n soul show on 6.  Fucking lovely it was and I threw some moves a man half my age would have been proud of while browning beef for a casserole Very Happy

In mode...

Bio, just got this email and placed my order:

Hi ,

We're excited to let you know that Laurent Garnier's autobiography Electrochoc, is now available for pre-order.

Pre-order now to:
be a part of the book and have your name printed in the Roll of Honour - though you must order by March 15!
• get £5 discount on the book, just £25 instead of £30 on publication.
• be the first to get the book. Publication will be in May but pre-orders will ship in April.

So what are you waiting for?

"Extraordinarily well-documented. Written with great precision. A wonderful book." Frederic Taddei, Europe 1.

Best wishes,

Rocket 88


Shipping charges are a bit stiff, mind.. and that's on top of the abysmal exchange rate - still shouldn't worry a Swiss too much Wink

Sorry Gerry, I never saw the above post. I ordered my copy too, but they wouldn't ship to Swissland as computer said no to my postcode. A copy will be waiting for me in Blighty when I visit. As for exchange rates, I've just topped up Euro account for next weeks visit to Ireland. I am not complaining Smile

Have had Entroducing on the morning commute a few times in the last of couple of weeks. It hasn't aged, but watching the sun rise light up the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau would make anything better. Checking the release date I see it might be due for a 20th Anniversary spruce up next year.

and sticking with the old tune theme, this one will be getting a dusting off of sorts as well

Oh man...Da Funk Very Happy such memories.  I fucking love that song *swoons*

On the roundabout subject of books the Book Depository has the Penguin Little Black Classics (80 books at 80p each for the 80th anniversary) at around half price for the set already - I got the lot for just over €50.  Interesting that the biggest seller of the set so far is the Communist Manifesto...

http://www.littleblackclassics.com

Going to these cult heroes next month too, so happy days.  From 35 years ago but still sounds so fresh and so unique

New album isn't bad either.

Was watching the Amy Winehouse "Other Voices" gig / documentary on BBC4 tonight. I never really got into Back to Black, but having it unplugged and stripped back to the acoustic basics and letting her voice do it's thing was a big improvement I thought. I recommend it on iPlayer and so on even if she's not necessarily your cup of tea.

In other upthread news, I found my incomplete collection of Penguin 60th anniversary 60p books in the cellar recently. I am beginning to feel middle aged Smile

I have been reading Lloyd Bradley's excellent Bass Culture, an encylopeadic history of reggae - and consequently listening to lots of roots and dub, especially some of the English stuff.  None better than this...


Link


I also watched the documentary movie about Fela Kuti on Netflix, a simply extraordinary musician, revolutionary, polygamist (he married 27 wives on the same day) and stoner.   Shocked

Watch it if you can...


Link


On the other hand I went to a Q&A screening of the Damned movie Don't You Wish We Were Dead by the same director that made the recent Lemmy movie.  Rather unsettling to bump into all the old punks again Embarassed - at least we didn't have a fight...

Dusty cobwebs here... Smile

Even dustier were the ones that were blown away by this unexpected beauty on an (very) old playlist today...

I recall being mightily impressed when Pat Kane was elected rector of Glasgow University - less so when he was superceded by Zoe Ball's dad and Ross Kemp... Embarassed

A song I am loving


Link


Off to see John grant in 2 weeks

The week after that I am going to Sunday of longitude festival with the national headlining and other good acts on that day, the one I've marked as definitely going to is Courtney Barnett


Link


Needless to say both days clash with mountain/hilly stages in the tour (for John grant, the plan be to leave shortly after the stage)

Well not quite this week, but I did enjoy the soundtrack to Mr. Robot (both the original compositions and the stuff they borrowed with other pop culture references).

Sneaky Pixies reference and Tangerine Dream being two examples


Link



Link


and I had to track this down for the boys as it had come up on an episode of Dick and Dom's Diddy TV. Shocked by the vintage - I had always thought it was a Jean Michel Jarre track. Could you really get away with zooming in and out on breasts in the early 70s? Smile
