I was gonna write out and link up a best of 2006 list, then I realised that I know next to nothing so instead I bring you...



A legend of odd-hop/alt-pop... emerging from cLOUDDEAD's shadows to realease 'oaklandazulasylum' An album for people with short attention spans but huge imagination..

'Cold Lunch' is a simple lullaby to the awkward feeling of approaching a party.. . it kicks like a mule as he runs off an inventory of essentials for the night..

'Dream on Coptelyou' is demented. Plain and simple. Doolally. It still makes perfect sense though.. 'simple physics make him go so fast'

'Shirtless, sleepless and' hints at the direction Why? took on 'Elephant Eyelash'. Lot's of beautiful singing but still with unusual lyrics.

Yesterday, in an attempt to lift my spirits I downloaded an excellent Christmas Mix by The Bomarr Monk (Restiform Bodies) and there was one band in particular that jumped out of the speakers and grabbed my ears. They are Mi and L'au, a French/Finnish couple making the most beautiful music in 'complete isolation in a small cabin'

They remind me of Low and A Silver Mt. Zion.
That is very good.

Wild Xmas with The Bomarr Monk Vol.2

Mi and L'au - Older

Someone buy me a new brain. The last two weekends have completely wonked me out. At least these fabulously twisted Thom Yorke remixes are sorting me out. A pleasure to see him link up with Surgeon and Various Productions.

This is from The Eraser mail out..

' For anyone who has heard The Eraser, there are some remixes coming.


I got excited. I've been listening through. I mean. There's some freaky shit.

They may start appearing soon. Gradually. Briefly.
Just a taste. And then gone.


First there is Surgeon's Rmx of The Clock.
This was the one that made me think, we got to start getting these out.
I was chuffed he wanted to do it as think he is a MASTER.
He has turned it into something really hard. And disco.
Well what i call disco anyhow.
It made me very proud.

I hope it gets played in a club somewhere.
Not that i get out much nowadays.

Peace to us all during the festive season.
