Dubioza kolektiv “Film za djecu i odrasle”

If you still have not picked up on how excellent the Dubioza Kolektiv are I recommend you watch the documentary “Film za djecu i odrasle” about them on Youtube. I didn’t know a thing about the music scene during the war in the former Yugoslavia, but I will certainly try to find out more since I saw it. The band have been going a long time and I just love what they do.

10 years since Remembering Machine

I can’t believe it’s 10 years since one of my all-time favourite albums was released: Remembering Machine, by Secret Archives of the Vatican. How time has flown.

I remember getting my hands on the album for the first time. It was a cold winter’s night in Croydon, and was my first meeting with Vince Millett and Louis Counter, who form the core of the collective. I’d discovered their music online and was playing tracks from their Babylon Halt album, which had been 10 years in the making and I really enjoyed. I’d never actually met the guys in real life but we’d been chatting online and said we should meet up one day.

Vince was waiting on the corner just outside the pub and we both recognised each other immediately, being similarly “hirsute” and “well-toned”.  Vince has gone to live up to the well-toned moniker, whereas I still remain in “inverted commas”. On the way in to the pub he pressed a CD-R of Remembering Machine into my hands and said it was the new album. This was only 6 months after Babylon Halt, so I was surprised at the speed of its release, but I was interested in hearing it.

Vice, Louis and I got on like a house on fire and I’ve been a big fan of their music ever since.

I couldn’t listen to the album until I got home, but when I did I was a little surprised. This wasn’t “son of Babylon Halt”. It was weird. With glitchy beats and almost subsonic basslines. This was new territory for me. I’m not sure I liked it.

I persevered listening to it, and something changed. This album grew … and grew … and grew on me. Just like all the great albums I had listened to my life: Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon,  Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures,  James’s Laid,  Massive Attack’s Mezzanine,  Leftfield’s Leftism  and Underworld’s Second Toughest in the Infants. These are all albums I’ve been unsure of, on first listening, but which still give goosebumps today. Part of the soundtrack of my life and I remember the day I got them vividly.

So, if you haven’t heard this album, then I implore you to get down to bandcamp and pick up your copy today. If not least, because it’s Vince’s birthday today, and it would be a fitting birthday present for him!  Go on!  You know you want to.  I promise you’ll not be disappointed.

Soon everyone will be a Podcaster…

According to Murderous Maths, when Elvis Presley died in 1977, it’s estimated there were about 170 people impersonating him. This number grew and grew and in the year 2,000 it was estimated there were about 85,000 Elvis impersonators. And in 2043 that number is projected to be 9,447,645,907 ,which is roughly the projected poulation of the Earth.

There’s been a big increase in celebrities creating (or planning on creating) podcasts in the last few weeks.  Ralf Little, Susan Calman and David Tennant in just the last week.

When podcasting first started in 2004 there were very few UK podcasters. Rowley Cutler did Dark Compass, Richard Vobes did the Vobes Show and Green Gragon (aka Martin Devaughn) did Bytesize Bonus.  The first podcasts I heard were Tane Piper’s Tripcast Radio and Phil Coyne’s Bitjobs for the Masses, which inspired me to start PC Podcast.  Thankfully Rowley and I are still around, and we were both part of the podcast “revolution” that Podshow|Mevio were going to mastermind, but which eventually closed, along with the Podsafe Music Network.

After, what I consider to be a “low” period (2011 – 2016) when a lot of podcasting resources and podcasts closed down, leaving only the real enthusiasts|technicians to keep plodding away, we do seem to have a new resurgance.

I’m not expecting this resurgance to mean everyone will be a Podcaster and an Elvis Impersonator, as that would be some repetative content, but lets hope this new wave will be interesting!

I’m raising money for a Children’s Cancer Charity.

Between Friday 27th and 29th September a bunch of us will be Swooving for 40 hours for 40 different charities.

I shall be Swooving for 10 hours and my chosen charity is Chestnut Tree House, which provides care for children and young people with life-shortening conditions, and their families.

To Swoove means to Sing, Whoop and Move. It’s a great physical and mental excercise and keeps me sane in an otherwise insane world.

If you have heard my podcasts, and have a couple of pounds, dollars, euros, or any other currency spare then please consider donating HERE to the cause. The last time I asked for sponorship was back in 2013, so I don’t ask everyday.

THANK YOU!
