Nice Brass

You can’t think that having acid house hits played by a brass band (Stockport’s Williams Fairey brass band) is anything other than a great idea can you? Yesterday’s Kevin Saunderson track re-done under the leadership of Jeremy Deller. A Youtube user recommends playing the two together, one starting 30 seconds or so after the other. It takes a while to get the synch-up to work but it’s well worth the effort. If you’ve got nowt else to do.

Acid Brass And (Man Ray)

One more Man Ray portrait, this time of poet and celebrity fascist Ezra Pound, looking as cool as a cucumber while contemplating a move to Italy and the policies of Mussolini. Possibly. To be fair, Ezra did say he regretted his pro-fascist words and actions later in life. Spending several weeks locked in a cage by US forces at the end of World War Two didn’t help his mental state either.

Some unrelated dance music (or dance music inspired music) from Jeremy Deller’s acid brass album from ages ago. Here the Williams Fairey Brass Band tackle techno classic Strings Of Life, Derrick May’s Rhythim Is Rhythim masterpiece.
