life is easy but needs earthing

a selection taken from the chaos that is my records at the moment.. they are on the floor, on shelves, in sleeves and out of sleeves, stacked together plastic to plastic, groove to groove.
got ANOTHER new soundcloud account
fixed my record players again (we are now in mad max territory for these troopers)...

An excerpt from a tuesday night jam

You know when you go round someones house for some much needed r'n r. 
You have the best intentions of having a civilized evening with a few friends. 
Food, good conversation, mild mid-week drink and drug abuse, all soundtracked by various random, enjoyable funks, folks, pops and crackles?
The wierdness was being saved for later in the evening, so to begin with it was all tasteful electronic beats and pieces, nothing too serious or heavy.
The gentleman jack and the red string thai flowed gently and we eased ourselves into the evening.
I got about an hour or so into the I-Key (you can listen and download below) before our attention spans started to degrade, and the all too familiar messy scenario of putting a record on for 30 seconds or so before snatching it off and replacing it with a 30 second burst of something else, took over the night. 
We veered accross musical genres at breakneck speed like Jeff Mills at a church jumble sale, at one point we were listening to that johnny trunk porno flexi disc lp, while someone was trying to fashion a weed vaporizer out of a lightbulb - the sort of thing 40+ year olds do on a regular basis so im told :(
Fun was had, hangovers were endured and i so wish i hadn't lost my main motor skills and recorded the better points of the evening - ah well there is always next week.

On the hill - a Brian G Morrison selection

download here

Thought i'd bypass January as it sucked.. but for those who care about these things happy new year and all that :)
Part of my new fitness regime is to get this blog updated on a much more regular basis - hopefully!
So for starters here is a super ace late night selection of recent acquisitions, old favourites & lost nuggets from special needs main man, Mr Bobby Hands aka phonica records disco sasquatch Brian Morrison.
This has classic sunset gear gently kneeded into arabic grooves and other funks.
The B word must be utalised here as genres have been gratefully ignored, thus providing me with much fun as i traveled the regents canal today on foot towards an appointment with my trick cyclist.
I know the tracks but mr hands has supplied an altenative listing which is far more fun.
enjoy :)

greek stag - naughty intro
winking krat - under the patio
hardware abuser - desert vibes
children of the gods - draughty
whats her name? - primal rhythm
swedes undercover - plucking
afro friends - dont fall in
mid price soldier - melt up
blind mans wife - sought after
well dressed couple - balham charity shop joint
not kiss - freddies alternative version
whisky breath - some old song
legendary knob twiddler - outro
