Friday @ zee V avec le Dubtête…yup. Tragic Moundaflout……
I very rarely, in fact hardly ever, leave the bFM studio feeling the show was sub-par, and there’s a whole lot of time and effort and endless listening & ting that goes on every single week to make sure of that. If that does happen it’s usually because I’m crook/ridonkulously busy or am about to be or just have been. However… sometimes the music just sits together exquisitely, and the vibes just run right, as in perfect right, from the moment Tidball and myself stop putting the world to rights and cursing those fukkkers in Guvinemnt, or even before that. Tonight was one such show for my money – the #44th of the year, and worthy of the double number, and then some. I hope it was a fraction as enjoyable, and testing, and revelatory out there on the other side for you, as it was for me up here – if so …points and prizes all round. Leaving the car I thought to myself I hope I can finish off with a vintage Bunny Lee scorchulator from the Full Up comp on Pressure Sounds that I was just getting my head round on the way to the show…and so it came to pass…raaaaass!
Cheers for the ears, and in this case the eyes…on ya!

Rodi Kirk – new EP …it stuns

That right there is the brand new EP from Rodi Kirk who is probably better known as Scratch 22. Having followed the development of this since its inception (more or less) I’m completely biased, but also 100% categorically correct (and scientifically proven) in saying that its brilliant, and it’s quite possible your life isn’t even close to complete until you’ve repaired yourself to the bandcamp locale and shaken a few shekels in Rodi’s direction. Regular listeners/readers/perusers should already be familiar with all of these tracks and accompanying imagery by now, not that that is going to stop me running one or two tonight, if not more. I could describe its myriad peaks and troughs, and  sumptuous detail to you but I’ve just been online reading some reviews of other things and I feel a bit vomity and very much like giving up writing… especially as Rodi is my mate, and I’m heartily sick of people writing gratuitously about their muckers music, or even worse people they think will be their chums on social media after they’ve blown a galaxy’s worth of smoke up their ass. I’m far too bitter and cynical right now to be talking about this music, so go and listen to it and support Rodi’s endeavours, because he’s worth it.

Before we go any further..I shall NOT be at Verona this Friday, Dub will be and someone else of worth no doubt but not me. I will be on my way home after indulging myself in a tributey feast of Rowland S. Howard-ness in Melbourne, I’m very excited about that and will be reporting back.
However on Saturday from early out, as mentioned last week, I’ll be holding down a stall at the Record Fair in Freemans Bay and man are there some treats in them crates pictured below. Over 300 reggae 7″s, all going for nothing more than $2.50 a piece, hundreds of 12″s (dancehall, dub, electronic, dancey tackle dubstep, d’n’b etc etc), heaps more albums (all of the aforementioned with a bit of added soul, jazz and how’s your father) and even some 10″s to keep it formatically egalitarian. Nothing more than $30 and most all 12″s at $5, single LP’s at $10, doubles/triples etc at $20 or $30 if speshy (like the wholesome Soul Jazz wax etc)…What’s more the better half will be bringing down a crate of first hand Ninja Tune etc wax at similarly foolish prices.. Madness… Ca$h only… Smart money says get in early but if you’re a tightass seagull type there may well be a bunging down of prices towards close (of course that’s only on whats left, and you know that early bird has got the happening headphones and all the chicks and ting..) Here’s my lot ready to leave the garage and hopefully into the hearts and homes of some lucky folk…

Podcast here
Obviously a very sad show, I have no idea how many tunes we’ve run on Stinky Grooves that Style Scott played on but it must be in the hundreds at the very least. So sick of having to make a feeble attempt at paying tribute to phenomenally talented Jamaican artists whose lives are cut short by violent means, it is beyond fuckery and such a tragic, pointless waste. Dubhead did an amazing tribute show last night, you can check the podcast of that here .. Respect!
Here is a great recent 2014 interview with Style Scott from earlier this year talking about his upbringing and musical beginnings, what a shame Pt 2 never got made.

Verona on Friday and you can be sure that Dub and myself will still be in the mood to celebrate the life of one of the Jamaican drum greats and reggae ambassadors 5-9 and 9-1 respectively.
Also before you go grabbing at them links to tunes I’m going to be starting the sell off of a large part of my record collection a week on Saturday at the Record Fair, details below. There will be some real crucial tunes that I’m letting go and booming bargains and it’s first come, first served…..


and foinally the bandcamp/soundcloud tracks, get amongst these and don’t forget this is only the digital tip of the musical niceberg – there’s plenty worth pursuing in the list above especially the Heliocentrics and Melvin Van Peebles joint and that Aphex Twin shiz which just grows and goes….
