Month: March 2004

  • Screamadelica 30/3/2004

    Aha – the quietude of Monday night’s DJing carried on last night to Scream. So I think my theory of the studes all going home is borne out. Plus they have all gone home. Even though it was quiet, I had a cool time dancing round to such gems as JAMC’s ‘Sidewalking’ and Le Tigre’s…

  • Bless Playlist 29/3/2004

    Veeeery quiet tonight – I think a lot of the Derby Uni studes have gone home and haven’t been replaced by indigenous studes returning home. Still, a quiet week means I can play more new stuff! And despite the quietude, I still got loads of requests tonight for peeps like Venetian Snares, Jellyfish, Minus The…

  • Walk Don’t Walk at Vertigo, 24/3/2004

    The only thing wrong with this gig is that the audience was far too small! Walk Don’t Walk played a smoooov set of classics and I even managed to hear ‘Misty’ before I had to go. The band were relaxed, happy and very, very cool. That all came over in everything they played. It’s a…

  • Screamadelica 23/3/2004 + Derby At Six Freaking AM

    We got there a bit earlier this week and so sauntered around a serenely empty club. Very restful. Then, all of a sudden, hundreds of people piled in and it was was busy as normal. Great music and lots of people I haven’t seen out in ages. I managed to get better photos this week…

  • Tits, Tits, TITS!

    “Congress is weighing legislation that would up the maximum penalty for indecency violations from $27,500 to $500,000 per incident.”(Source: MTV, March 19th) I just googled the word “tits” and found the above picture. Shocking, isn’t it? Now, having seen those tits, those, boobs, those knockers, baps, mams, hooters, those boy magnets, you will be corrupted…

  • Are These Men Commie Pinkos Too?

    Quote 1: “A veteran White House anti-terrorism official has accused President George Bush of ignoring the threat from al-Qa’ida before 11 September 2001 – and then at once seeking to hold Iraq responsible, despite being told by intelligence advisers that Iraq had nothing to do with the attacks.”(Source: The Independent) The White House veteran denouncing…

  • Bless Playlist 22/3/2004

    Not as good as last week but I still did well cos I managed to cram in many, many new tracks, some pre-release. To tell the truth, my mind was wandering a bit tonight. Although I enjoyed it, I was still remembering Saturday and the feeling of being on the antiwar demo. Tonight felt like…

  • Global Antiwar Pics

    I’ve nicked these images off the web, I think they’re a marvellous slice of the many protests last Saturday. Click here for the pics!

  • The World At Antiwar

    New York, Sixth Avenue, 20/03/2004 Below is a list of all the cities which had antiwar demonstrations yesterday. This is the truth of the numbers involved in the global peace movement. NORTH AMERICA UNITED STATES Alabama Auburn, Jacksonville, Mobile Alaska Anchorage, Homer, Juneau, Petersburg Arizona Phoenix, Prescott, Tuscon Arkansas Fayetteville, Jonesboro, Little Rock California Albion,…

  • The British Mass Media: Accomplices To Murder

    Rome, 20/03/2004 I’m not stupid. I wasn’t expecting a half-hour feature on the BBC about the global antiwar protest yesterday, even though it was the most important event of this year. I wasn’t even expecting them to question the Met Police’s traditionally mendacious protestor count. But the level of media distortion I saw last night…

  • No More Lies Antiwar Demo, London 20/3/2004

    Today, I marched alongside millions of other people all over the world in the cause of peace and freedom. There were apparently over one million demonstrators in Rome alone! I’m most heartened that in New York, over 100,000 demonstrated – can you imagine the kind of flak these brave Americans must get from warhawks and…

  • Fight The Power!

    This Saturday, I’ll be joining hundreds of thousands (maybe millions) of other ordinary people all around the globe in a protest. What’s it about? Well… –> We’re protesting that the US and its lackeys illegally invaded a non-aggressor country, citing pre-emptive attack as a justification. The exact same defence used by the Nazis in their…

  • Screamadelica 16/3/2004

    I had another cool night, mincing around the same as usual. But I believe everyone else was under the influence of a Stephen King-like evil force. There was sadness, madness and anger EVERYWHERE! The clincher was when people melded into a giant, pulsating amoeba in the middle of the dancefloor, ragged clumps of hair covering…

  • Bless Playlist 15/3/2004

    Tonight was definitely a good night! I managed to fit in shitloads of new tracks (and old tracks I haven’t previously played) as well as play most of the requests I got. I’m getting in a crowd with impeccable taste, so it’s easy to play what they want 😉 That Raising The Fawn track is…

  • Aznar Out, Blair Next!

    “In the popular view, without Spain’s involvement in Iraq – 1,300 soldiers committed; the fourth biggest national contingent – the 200 who died in the bombings would almost certainly be alive, the 1,500 injured would still be in one piece. The decision to join Blair and Bush’s military adventure in Iraq, in the teeth of…

  • Cherry Blossom & Colours

    What a strange day – veering from dark, blustery squalls to fine, golden sunlight. In between the rainfall, I nipped out and tried to capture some of the rich colours I could see: Click here for the pics!

  • More US Funding of Terror?

    “Washington has been channelling hundreds of thousands of dollars to fund the political opponents of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez – including those who briefly overthrew the democratically elected leader in a coup two years ago.” (Source: The Independent) This is the truth behind the US government’s self-righteous blustering about democracy and terrorism: they don’t give…

  • Some Old Truth, Still True

    “Civil disobedience. . . is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that numbers of people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of the leaders of their government and have gone to war, and millions have been killed because of this obedience. . Our problem is that people are…

  • Why Rock Musicians Are Cunts

    I’ve just watched a prog on C4 about an alleged tribute to MC5. The surviving members got assorted old rockers in to guest for the dead and trundled out the approved classics. The show included huge amounts of simpering praise and quite nauseating levels of ass-kissing towards MC5. There was even some bastard on from…
