Brighton Pier at Dusk



The pier was deserted at dusk, such a beautiful light...

Wonderfulsound


The Wonderfulsound Libraries

This is my favorite online radio show.

Occasional enough to be worth waiting for, not afraid to take risks, or to just be daft.

More importantly its a great place to hear some incredible new music such as John Stammer.

Tune in, turn on, and enjoy the Wonderfulsound, Wonderfulsound, Wonderfulsound....

Munich


Cold and dark and sometimes beautiful ... had a long walk through the empty streets.

Jim Demetriou

I had not seen Jim since the days I used to go to the 100 Club 6Ts Allnighters and the Norfolk Village gatherings (many moons ago).

Jim was a lovely, genuine guy, crazy about his music, and a phenomenal dancer.

Very saddened to hear that Jim recently lost a long battle against Cancer. There is a memorial night on Friday 16th November with his old mates Liam and Angelo on the decks, alongside Ady Croasdell, Buey and others.

Rest in piece.

Ray O'Reilly, Bar Italia, 1996


Some old pre-digital photos scanned in for posterity - this is my old mate Ray O Reilly, the man behind probably the longest running Northern Soul show on Irish radio.

After the torrential rain of last week, a crystal clear sunny afternoon, the view here is around the corner from where I work.

Monty's Mobile Dinner 23.07.07

Many thanks to Paul Monty Munford for a tremendous night on the tiles with an interesting crowd of Mobile Industry bods at the Develop conference.

The charming food was heavily outnumbered by liquid refreshments at Due South, Brighton, and when the mayhem subsided, slightly, it was all back to the Brighton Metropole Hotel for further mis-advertures.

If you want to find out more about Paul's excellent newsletter, worth it for the weekly intro alone, email paul.munford@playerx.com.

Daft Punk's Electroma - Strange & Beautiful


No dialogue ...... no music by Daft Punk..... sad, beautiful, deep.

It's being screened in selected Art House cinemas and festivals, visit www.electroma.org for details.

I was lucky enough to catch it in Stockholm last year, so blown away I kept the ticket!

Essential Music

A gem of gems from the archives of the Dalston Oxfam Shop blog.

I listened to this when it came out, and have to say it directly
influenced my record buying decisions for decades to come...

Enjoy!
