Back on the mash band wagon for the new year(still think in school terms)
This weeks mash comes from Solen who had my favourite Irish record of last year-Block/Lord. It’s classy stuff and you can tell they’ve been in Berlin over the summer.
Solen-Oh Superman it is so Simply Plastic Star Sora
It’s a mash of Laurie Anderson’s Superman(one of my fav tunes to mash) and Donnacha Costello/Byetone/AlvaNoto
Here’s the cover of their last single an amazing image of the Dublin’s Ballymun flats.
Six foot apprentice and I are warming up for Herv and The Vinny club at the launch of their split single on Richter Collective tonight. Herv’s sets have been blowing me away, with a warm detroit motor soul infusing his patented brew of idm and breakcore.
The Vinny club is famed for putting on a great show with super mario guitar hero antics in his live sets.
The first 200 get a copy of the single.
Got this Eprom mixtape from here. It’s stoopid good noiseporn.

Several weeks ago DJ Oneman started streaming live sets from his bedroom at www.ustream.tv/channel/yard-sessions. With little or no prior notice he would hit the stream button and jump in the mix, only after announcing it on Twitter of course. Oneman coined the term “yardsessions” for these broadcasts, and when I saw that I knew he was on to something.
I had to borrow the idea from him.
So – a yardcast is a spontaneous home/studio broadcast. It’s is a phase-shift in braodcasting, what the emergence of interent radio was to FM stations.
But unlike the (relatively!) clockwork rotas of Rinse and Sub FM, the yardcast format is less like a radio show and more like a live event. It may be dissembodied, but what the ‘event’ of the yardcast loses in physicality it gains in universal accesiblity. We’re not limited by budgets, venue curfews, commercial concerns or geographic location. Everyone can join in this party.
Unlike the institutional regidity of station broadcasts, a yardcast slots perfectly alongside tweets and status updates into the real-time continuous, ongoing stream of discourse.
That’s the pompous, but nontheless important part over.
The rest is a big all-day party you’re all invited to.
and here‘s the 32o- been around awhile like it’s (well programmed) dumbness, I’m feeling the need for more and more good dumb music these days as an antidote to all the suburban dutch dubstep and the like around. When a genre gets ‘slick’ run the other way. Intelligent drum and bass anyone? Oh yeah, forgive the lack of mashes, shows, proper posts etc. I’m away a lot, gigging, working, holidaying… coming to an end in about a month and normal transmission will be resumed.
