Re: Best of 808 (Blueprint)

Important question. I'm sure many of you are aware that the PIAS Factory has been burned down in Enfield and my sympathies go out to all the labels and staff involved. I was just wondering who the distributor is for Blueprint is and if the recent events will affect the release date at all (and maybe...

Yamaha RY-10

Does anybody have any info about this drum machine? I have been trying to find some info about it on the net but it's proving elusive. I bought mine second hand from my brother 12 years ago. Awesome drum and percussion sounds. I'm looking at digging it out for an album I'm working on and MIDI'ing it...

Bands you never knew were from Manchester...

... Swing Out Sister. Whenever you hear about great bands from Manchester you never hear Swing Out Sister mentioned. I only found out today that the two founder members of the group, Andy Connell and Martin Jackson, are both from Manchester. Jackson was drummer in Magazine and Connell had played in ...

Also don't forget Bomb The Bass's third album "Clear" which thanks 808 State between Richie Hawtin and Streets Ahead.

HELP - I've broken my Rebirth RB-338 disc

Silly me. I was putting my laptop back in my rucsac today and at the bottom was my ReBirth disc broken in two. To make matters worse I never bothered making a copy. I have Rebirth loaded on my laptop but everytime I go to use it there is a disc prompt. Is there any way of accessing ReBirth without h...

Mexico:90

I read somewhere (possibly here) that 808 State released 90 in Mexico on vinyl with all the track names in Spanish. Is this still available anywhere at all? And while on the topic of 90 - what kind of fish is that on the sleeve?

I saw Graham playing a Yamaha Wind Controller thingy in that Pacific video. I didn't know they even existed back in 1989. What model was that?

NEW ALBUM > Bomb The Bass - Future Chaos

Cannot believe nobody has mentioned it on here. Came out last week and it's a stunner. In fact, it was lovingly reworked on a Moog and I think it sounds very 808 State-y (think Outpost Transmission). Just checked to see where it has placed on the charts and it hasn't even made the Top 100. Absolutel...

I'm piggy in the middle here because I'm an admirer of both 808 State and The Beloved. At the end of the day like people have said, everyone is entitled to their own opinions. But I think we have to remember that the thread was about about "What if ..." . I don't think you can attribute what comment...

808 State Formula One Theme 2005

With a whole shake up of things in Formula One next year, and I am guessing, there may well be a new theme tune next year for the F1 show on ITV. I don't know what you guys think, but if they were to change the music next season they should have "Fuzz Nasty". I think if there's one 808 tune that cou...

Got both the 12" and the LP back on Saturday. Absolutely nothing short of genius. Does anyone know if Prebuild has got on to the UK Album charts at all? I'm glad that Prebuild got released because it is a great accompaniment to the Newbuild album. Whatever style of Dance music you listen to/compose ...

I know two years has passed (a long time, lol) and I got my copy of Optibuk when it came out but I didn't have a DVD player at the time soI couldn't watch it. My Dad has beaten me to it and got one the other day so I dug out the DVD and slipped it in and I have to say it's absolutely wicked. I love ...

New album - missing inner sleeve

Been looking round a couple of record shops recently and looking at the CD version of the album, there appears to be missing inner sleeves in all the copies. :-? Is this intentional?

Merry Xmas all Statesman.

PLAY it LOUD in cars and gigs (Pete etc) and lets get this album mentioned or recognised somewhere that it otherwise wouldn't. yeah, find a dirty old bus or a truck and write on the back and on the windows in big letters.
