I went to Wanging Revival Pt.1 featuring Squarepusher. The venue is a bit sweat box (I know some of you nutters will probably like that mind) but acoustically great. Squarepusher did an hour or so's DJ set then reached for his bass and drum machine to thrash out remixed versions of some of his class...

Sunrise

Had to come back from the dead for this post. Sunrise..
pretty much embodies what 808 means to me. It's great to read
people still talking about it. What a tune, what a feeling.. (whacks
it on full blast in the office ;-) )

Confirmed..

Hiya All, An old school friend of mine co-owns snowbombing, and he told me today that 808 only just confirmed their headline at Snowbombing yesterday. I've sent an official flyer-email to Markus so I guess he may take the info on that and create a 808 live page. I've been tempted to go to Snowbombin...

Baton Rouge - Great Tune

Hiya Weunice, I also was out looking for Baton Rouge for quite a while too. The only way I finally got to hear it was downloading it via AudioGalaxy. Although in the harsh eyes of the copywriter this is piracy, I would have willing paid the dosh to buy it had I been able to find it out in the real w...

(bit late on the uptake with this one) Great tune! I must admit I was taken by moors, but oasis sounds really good. I thought I recognised a few things, def. something from Jerusahat in there as graham says. It re-awakened that early don solaris feel for sure. Loved the timing of the post too markus...

I'm still posting some chat though cos I believe that Manc will always have a strong underground, just something about the place, the mix of cultures .. When I lived t...

Why so late in the day, 808?
I've already bought my ticket to Essential Festival @ Hackney Marshes, on the same day, Aug. 3rd. What a complete gutting clash.
Sigh.

.. but still, getting through to the 1/4 finals of the WC is a great achievement.

To be honest I thought half the squad looked knackered, inc. the toon's star Dyer, just didn't seem to have any real drive.

Only 4 years to go now till the next chance eh lads ..
