"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

I think there was also jazz in the Neolithic era, but none was recorded so unfortunately we can't hear it.

He probably had no idea that turntables, wearing combat trousers and calling yourself ‘DJ’ something was right around the corner either.

np Andrew. We actually pickup a direct feed from DJ Female Convict Scorpion, so release dates and product often follows later
