Honest to goodness cockerney murderers

When did it become ok to advertise your 'British grub' credentials with a pair of violent murderers? Would loved to have been in that meeting of marketing bellends. Not even Guy Ritchie would stoop that low.

Oh, and don't bother going anyway cos the food is shit and a gaff calling itself 'Sausage & Mash' should really have mastered the mash bit without lumps.

Childhood ambition realised - I shall be wearing my tee all week for stinky authenticity

30 minutes of white noise - seriously one of the loudest things I've ever heard, like a wind tunnel of noise. Gig of the year, no doubt and they even made Soon sound better than the Weatherall mix.

Checked out the Boneyards party at Stussy on Friday.
Was good, especially the Heine's in brushed metal bottles and hot music selections from Acyde & Jude.
The Supreme cap-pre-sq-metre ratio was pretty funny too.
Had a chat with Andrew Bunney about some exciting Hideout projects coming up - keep 'em peeled, and we'll be featuring some in the August fanzine.

You should definitely check it out - the newspaper alone is worth the trip.

Boneyards mixtape here!

What no nail bomb?

Christians are well rubbish - if this was one of Rushdie's inflammatory tomes you wouldn't be able to move for burning effigies. What does Hitchens get? A neat little slipover that doesn't even ruin the book!

Went to the seaside at the weekend, here's some 'arty' pics of the pier that burnt down:

Just to redress the balance, here's some 'Ganja Rock'

I Want It To Be Real

Thanks to the lads at tothebone I now know what this record is called. Heard it loads on old WBMX tapes but never tracked it down - the spoken word section is HOUSE.

This shit was my life as a kid - I can't believe any of it is still intact as most of these mags got hacked into bedroom decoration. The designs still inspire me, especially the type - pre-illustrator baby.

The FILLED-OUT reader questionnaire will have to wait - unseen levels of bentness.

Spring Clean Mix

Decided I'd try and get some use out of a few purchases made over the last couple of months. As usual I got bored (a mix of being excited about skating later and only having turntables at home - no CDJs) so it's only just over 45 minutes long and probably a bit sketchy in parts.

My bad.

Go figure.

New London Architecture

I didn't even know this place existed until my better half read about it. We went to check out the current exhibition 'UNDERGROUND: London's Hidden Infrastructure' but saw a whole lot more.

The space is billed as:

New London Architecture is a vital addition to the public debate about the future of London. The capital is undergoing a period of massive change and NLA is a place where everyone - professionals, politicians and public - can find out and get involved in what is happening to their city.

The NLA space is a centre for display as well as a centre for debate and for networking. It is where visitors to London can orientate themselves, where school children can learn about their environment, where communities can be consulted.

A permanent exhibition of a 1:1500 scale model of Central London, surrounded by a display showing a cross section of current building projects, is enhanced by a programme of temporary exhibitions addressing London issues.

On entering The Building Centre, visitors are greeted with a huge 3D scale map of London showing all proposed new developments from the olympic village through to the Shard etc. Sadly my flat was just off the map but it was properly fascinating - I could look at architectural models all day to be fair.

The real highlight was the 'UNDERGROUND' section of the exhibition. Broken down into sections (services, flood defence, transport, residential etc) the exhibition displayed ways in which the spaces underneath London streets have been utilised in the past, and how we can use similar in the future (in a sustainable way. Examples varied from the now defunct Post Office underground railway, stables underneath Camden up to modern developments such as the Jubilee Line extension.

One of the few exhibitions I've seen recently where I've read absolutely everything on the walls!

I was lucky enough to be at the Siouxsie gig last night. Not a fan of the Shepherds Bush Empire but managed to find a space by the bar between some old punks, a MASSIVE tranny and goth dancing with his arms like Fingermouse.

Siouxsie was incredible though, looked amazing and sounded like a recording (in a good way). Although she did a few classics (Hong Kong Garden, Arabian Nights...) it was more a showcase for the new album which after last night is certified ESSENTIAL. Aged blokes shouting out tracklists were met with stern rebuke as newer material was aired. It felt overwhelming modern and for want of a better word 'dancy' - made me wonder why there wasn't/isn't more Siouxsie-Balearic disco crossover.

This sounded great too:

Lakai - Fully Flared

Finally bought a copy of this. Like most scabs I'd already seen the whole thing online but a film this good needs repeated viewings and tangible ownership. I'll be watching it for years - not just the best skate video in years, but one of my best films full stop. Go and buy it so they can afford to make another.

Unfortunately for my aching bones it's responsible for getting me back out on four wheels. I'm too fucking old.


Just got this - amazing scenes. Not new, but well worth picking up. Same person did the ESSENTIAL hip hop book.
