Yeah man, the PG 1000. I have one for my 50 and it's a lot of fun once you get yer head around it. ( I had to get a booklet ) I also own all the Roland cards for mine and there is a TON of stuff from that sound set that you definately hear in early 808 records. Like the intro bit in State to State. ...

Pacific String Chord Debate...

Hey there, This mainly for Pacific Reefer in his pursuit in closely matching that definitive chord sound in Pacific State. I tried doing a cover of it as well. What helped me was I read a really early interview in a great book called 'The history of House' where Graham explained how they achieved th...

Duuuuuuuuuude!!! I purchased a 'NOVA' multi-region DVD player from Best Buy for only $49.00 Canadian. That's peanuts. HOWEVER, it won't open anymore and my Optibuk DVD is stuck inside and I have to return the fookin' thing. Sad... because if I want to watch my St Etienne "Smash the System" DVD right...

I actually have a 10'' of The Helecopter Tune (refuge crew remix) and the B-side of that is a track that totally ripps off Pacific state. They just re-arranged the C major 7th string samples in a different order to make it really 'Art-Core'.

It's really nice. Loons and every'ting in it.

Hey Markus, Thanks for the link. I do know of that site and there is indeed not much news there either. I'm not sure how many 808ers are fans of the Saints but I'm suprised they are so low key. I think they are one of the most brilliant sounding groups to come out of the 90s. I'll just have to be pa...

Hey... Anybody know if there is anything at all going on with Saint Etienne lately? I saw them on tour for the Finisterre album and now I don't hear anything about them AT ALL. :-? Even their website "saint etienne heaven" has been under construction for almost a whole year now!! It's crumbs I tell ...

I'm honestly just amazed that she has such a devoted fan base that willingly buy up all her releases!!! It seems like Björk is releasing new dvds and box sets like crazy. I totally envy the Björk collectors, there's so much out there for them. Such a resource of material to enjoy. My wife is all ove...

Lots of peeps tellin' me not to buy any Simply Vinyl. Apparently it's not the best quality sound transfers. I wouldn't know... I have to hear it for musself. However, I really would love Joey Beltram's 'Energy Rush' on 12". That's a fav of mine. They also have Mr Fingers 'Can You Feel It'. Not to fo...

Oddly enough, as I did a search for Ibiza club history, I found out that rave pioneer Guru Josh lives in Ibiza and is still as crackers as ever!! Apparently after his 'Infinity' album he stopped making music. Now he is writing a producing some trancy stuff (if you like that sort of thing) and is per...

Yeah, liberated children my arse. Just saw this video of a U.S. helicopter kill. Interesting how these "Iraqi soldiers" are unarmed and yet still are enough of a threat to suffer this fate. They never even fired a shot. It appears that they are walking around a farm tractor. Were they farmers going ...
