Eating lists

I’m kind of eating end of year lists at the moment, the ultimate guilty pleasure. I didn’t do my round up this year(which is really more of a survey of mates and peers). Wasn’t feeling doing it for some reason, was more feeling this perineal –

A Klee painting named ‘Angelus Novus’ shows an angel looking as though he is about to move away from something he is fixedly contemplating. His eyes are staring, his mouth is open, his wings are spread. This is how one pictures the angel of history. His face is turned toward the past. Where we perceive a chain of events, he sees one single catastrophe which keeps piling wreckage and hurls it in front of his feet. The angel would like to stay, awaken the dead, and make whole what has been smashed. But a storm is blowing in from Paradise; it has got caught in his wings with such a violence that the angel can no longer close them. The storm irresistibly propels him into the future to which his back is turned, while the pile of debris before him grows skyward. This storm is what we call progress. – Walter Benjamin

Ireland's own

Here are some quality Irish tunes from 2Bit and Automatic Tasty. 2Bit’s ‘Ifer’ is available  for free download here.

Automatic Tasty has an album out on Acroplane here. The tune below ‘Little blue car’ is driving me mad ’cause its melody reminds me of a tv theme tune(a book voucher for anybody who indentifies it, I gave up after a couple of hours, not spectrum enough I suppose).

In other Irish news,  from the Clare People – “Lisdoonvarna double act Drugzilla are Clare People Interactive’s Clare Artist’s of the year…(they)bring underground to a whole new level and have won a massive international following for their experimental hardcore songs about drinking cider and Buckfast.” Hope to have them at our new run of gigs(more on these soon) in McGruders in April.

Also a good mix of funky (newish UK house/bass variant) below from Colz. What I like about the mix is that is forefronts the riddim-ness(in the dancehall sense) of funky. It also includes by far my fav funky tune so far, Hard house Banton’s “sirens”.
