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...
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
so gives me an excuse to post this. Might have done so before but it's timeless so no harm with double posting
Bio, just got this email and placed my order:
We're excited to let you know that Laurent Garnier's autobiography Electrochoc, is now available for pre-order.
Pre-order now to:

So what are you waiting for?
"Extraordinarily well-documented. Written with great precision. A wonderful book." Frederic Taddei, Europe 1.
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 _________________ "I'm playing all the right notes. But not necessarily in the right order."
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
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.
Oh man...Da Funk 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...
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
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...
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 - at least we didn't have a fight...
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... _________________ "I'm playing all the right notes. But not necessarily in the right order."
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?
