Re: Best of 808 State (Blueprint)

Listening to it now in the office, the joys of being able to have stuff delivered to work and listen to it too :wink:.

808 State in the news...

...well off the back of The Stone Roses anyway. The Sunday Times Culture section runs a Song of the Year section each week and a couple of weeks ago it was the turn of The Stone Roses' Fool's Gold for 1989 and 808 got a mention. http://entertainment.timesonline.co.uk/tol/arts_and_entertainment/music...

Radio 1 and Pacific

There I was, driving along the A24 at 2:22pm today, listening to Radio 1. To my surprise Judge Jules was on and he decided to slap on Pacific.

I have to say that was the best four minutes driving I've had today. Certainly made me drive a little more enthusiastically!

Cubik/Pacific

I don't know if this is old news, but I was in HMV in Ipswich on Saturday and I happened across a stand with some unusual looking vinyl. It turned out to be re-releases of some early nineties dance tunes. To my surprise it included one with the orginal 12" versions of Cubik and Pacific. They were pr...

M.C. Tunes vs. 808 State

Whilst at a friends house over the weekend I was channel hopping on the Sky music channels. As luck would have it MTV Dance was having a kind of old skool phase on Saturday evening and they even played The Only Rhyme That Bites.

Nice to know somebody at Sky likes to keep the vibe alive!

Makes me think back to when Feedback Communications used to run the State to State Club. I sent a few e-mails and I'm pretty sure I got replies from Andy back then.

Then again this was sometime between 1993 and 1996 back when I was at uni so I could be totally wrong...

Outpost Transmission

Well I gave in and ordered it from Simbiotic too.

Neither HMV and Virgin Megastore in Kingston-upon-Thames had it in stock. Beggars Banquet hadn't ordered it. They leave that sort of thing to HMV according to the assistant. Guess 808 are too middle of the road for them!
