potato man…

where the hell have you been?!

my first glimspe of the o2. it did fill up.

my first glimspe of the o2. it did fill up.

so i went to spandau ballet in the o2. tony hadley dedicated true to stephen gately (rip). the whole crowd sang along (as much because it’s the band’s most famous song as anything else) and what was amazing was that i could still hear the band properly. maybe that was because i was two rows from the back, but anyway, i was still impressed.

Rui Da Silva – Touch Me (Samples Spandau Ballet’s Chant No. 1)

friday night i hit the button factory for the ed banger night – i was hoping so me would be kind of kooky and weird, but he wasn’t that far outside of the ed banger mould. breakbot played some cool tunes, as did busy p. unfortunately i had to leave a little bit early so missed most of feadz‘s set, though what i did hear was excellent as usual – such as a bmore version of the tetris theme (!) and bangalter’s outrun.

the following night i paid a visit to oktoberfest at chq, which was, in a word, surreal. there was a big hall, there were lots of benches and long tables, and a LOT of paulaner. that much i expected. i didn’t expect the chant/refrain of german nonsense, or hearing cotton eye joe, macarena and lots of dj otzi.

what was less surreal was jokers of the scene at colortv in wax. that was just great. except for the “random” body search on the way in – i’m thinking of getting this tee in protest. but that aside, it was awesome. the boys played a fantastic set – it was full of excellent techno, most of which i didn’t recognise, but it was expertly peppered with some of their own productions and remixes. it would have been easy for them to close on the unstoppable baggy bottom boys but they just kept on going. excellent stuff.

so today and yesterday i took it easy. i watched some generation kill, some peep show, and finally finished watching let the right one in. i liked it, less than the book (as is generally the case), but i thought it was an interesting and faithful, if hugely condensed, adaptation. i thought the book was exceptional in its detail, while the film was impressive by virtue of its use of vague suggestion and implication – brush strokes rather than minute detail.

this weekend i’m looking forward to the juan maclean, in flagranti and the field at tripod, and then i’m supporting mustard pimp on saturday at transmission. i’d love to be hitting some of the deaf nights, but alas i’m working almost every day so i don’t want to spread myself too thin! i did this weekend and it’s tough going. i’m getting old…

final word – check out the delancey music service on east village radio tonight – or later in the week on eli‘s blog. last week he and stretch played some wicked tunes, as well as interviewing amanda blank. get on it.


great news


you know i’m always you going on about eli. along with the awesome tracks, killer remixes and flawless mixes, he can also be a funny dude, as evidenced whenever he stands in for mark ronson’s authentic shit on east village radio. so it’s with great pleasure that i read of his new venture, a weekly show on evr with one stretch armstrong. wow. this is so good. eli played on the station t’other day, peep this sweet tracklist – among some other gems there’s a preview of eli’s remix of phoenix. i just can’t wait to hear the bant between him an stretch!

So I’m pretty excited to announce that starting next Tuesday night, Stretch Armstrong and I will have our own show on EVR every week. Details are still being sorted out but what I can tell you is it will be a mixed format show with plenty of new and, of course, old music, guests and perhaps some sardonic New York City banter thrown in for good measure. In any event, yesterday I played a set on the station’s show “On The Fly” . You can stream it here. Unfortunately EVR has changed its website a bit and downloading shows is no longer an option. Once Stretch and I get started with our show I will put up the podcast address which is the ideal way to archive EVR shows. Stay tuned!

early top 10

i fear some of these charts may be getting a bit repetitive – but hey, i’m just repping what i love you know. glass house is slowly working its way up my tunes of the year list, may well be at the top by december. as for that hell track – yeah there’s been some controversy, but the remix package is to die for. radioslave wins for the sheer balls of making a motherf*ckin’ 28 minute version for the two motherf*ckers that understand it. i’m one of them πŸ˜‰

nice live mix


i seem to love everything that’s coming out on solid bump right now, so this mix is looking pretty good to my eyes. white girl lust, whose blood was one of my favourite tracks this summer, has just posted a live mix over on the SB blog. this live mix has a nice balance of brand new stuff from the likes of laberge and eli as well as a few classics from suzy q and depeche mode. there’s even a mini joey negro re-edit section – not mad at all. check it out here.

Last week I stopped by Triple Crown to drop a DJ set at the new night Studio SF hosted by LOW SF & Go Bang. It was a awesome party. People got their soul clap on during β€œChicago”, sang along to β€œaNYway”, and served up shots to the DJ. What more do you want?
