This comp was given to me by my friend James Price who is my friend because he's very funny and a nice guy, but who is also the hot new vid director. Damn, he's directed the good new songs from Simian Mobile Disco, Shit Disco and Lost Penguin (playing at Durrr on Monday, by the way). So he knew that his E27 postcode East London zone was where the good cassettes were from so he got me . . . a 1994 comp with Oasis on it. Yeah, that's some rare shit;)
Anyway, so truth be said this is one of the eras and genres of music that I know the least about. I was not into this music when it first came out. But I do like the Lush track and I know that Primal Screen, Aphex Twin and The Dust Brothers (aka Chemical Brothers) are marquee names. Enjoy.

Plus something new. Now that I'm a big blogger man, this band sent me some of their songs. I know nothing about Sir Salvatore other than that their songs are catchy in a Strokes kind of way. But now and then you need a good fun tune to listen to. Their myspace says they do Zouk Zouk Zouk. If only . . .
But only in London
is a pop man
often a contrarian.
