Dark Horses

Ctel posted this at Acid Ted the other day (but it’s easy to miss stuff there as he posts several times a day). I thought I’d re-present it here as it’s a good ‘un and it’s very much in Bagging Area territory. Justin Robertson, dressed in his Deadstock 33s clothes, remixes Dark Horses and their song Boxing Day- lengthy with drones and crisp motorik drums, ‘krauty’ as Ctel noted but pretty clubby and direct with it- I like it very much and it’s a free download. Get it from Soundcloud.

I’ve Been Beat Up, I’ve Been Thrown Out

Captain Sir Richard Francis Burton- he was beat up, he was thrown out,  he was not down. He had a good tomb as well, in Mortlake. Worth a look.

Another London Booted track, this time E-Jitz bootleg version of Mick’s down-in-the-dumps tale I’m Not Down spliced with Hold Your Head Up by… er… actually, who is Hold Your Head Up by? Answers in the comment box to embarrass me. Whoever it is, this is mash up soul-punk brilliance from the E-Jitz boys.

I’m Not Down (Hold Your Head Up)


Now, Movemberists, that’s a moustache (as worn by Captain Sir Richard Francis Burton, the man who trekked through east Africa, taking a spear through the cheek and out the other side, searching vainly for the source of the Nile, found time to translate the Arabian Nights and the Kama Sutra, and lived a life full of colour- Victorian Britain was shocked by him and his private life . Kind of puts your own CV in the shade a bit doesn’t it).

Daniel Avery is a new kid on the electronic block and he has a mix compilation in the long running Fabric series coming out next week. His own track Naive Reception is on the album and can be streamed here. It’s a techno acid thing. Justin Robertson’s Deadstock 33s are on the cd as well as (I think) Weatherall and Fairplay’s  Asphodells. Daniel Avery put this out in June this year.
