Mp3 Blogs

As I don't have the time to muck about and convert some mp3s until later, below's a list of damn good mp3 blogs...


As far as I can tell, this is the only reference to Throbbing Gristle in a blog title around, and they usually post most of the stuff that it's in line with what I'm interested in. It's from Brighton in England, which I wouldn't be able to point out on a map (sadly),

An Idiot's Guide To Dreaming

Another British blog, which is appropriate, because as Robin Simpson said yesterday "the Brits love to gush". Recent posts include Momus, AK Momo, and Afrika Bambaataa, Martin Rev and Boyd Rice. The only people I'd trust to explain what the hell acid-house was.

Spoilt Victorian Child

And yet another British blog, with well-written posts on Malcolm McLaren's "Double Dutch" song, Adam and the Ants, Bow Wow Wow, and the now strangely ubiquitious Richard Harris.


The original...

...Said The Gramophone

The other Wolf Parade obsessive 'round these parts, currently edited by Jordan Himmelfard. Out of Montreal.

Soul Sides

The more hip-hop and soul oriented on the list. The paragraphs read like the transcribed dialogue of a cartoon pimp cat sometimes, but it's tolerable.

Cocaine Blunts

Hands-down the best mp3blog out there with a focus on hip-hop, CB is the place to find hissy mp3s from old West Coast tapes you only wish your older siblings were cool enough to have had.

Mandatory Moustache All-Locals Series TONIGHT...

Former Blue Skies Turn Black house band Kiss Me Deadly perform along with Mia Verko, who unfortunately channel the more unexciting moments of Winnipeg bop-pop bands of years past (such as Painted Thin and the Bonaduces), and Crime Moth, whom I've never heard. The all-locals series has thrilled many a CEGEP student on Tuesdays past, and I assume tonight will be no exception. It's happening at Le Divan Orange (4234 St. Laurent), with a sliding scale door-price, and it's actually quite nicely set up in there, so show up around 8:30pm with your keenest attitude and cheapest cigarettes.

Hey Victoria,
I'm a huuuuge fan of that blog - the other two British ones I mentioned are pretty good, too, and sometimes have stories about drugs and listening to Psychic TV and other quintessential British experiences... How're you doing down there, by the way?

I'm v. good. K just visited, it's warm here, and Jordan and I recently rediscovered our love for the Stone Roses while eating at Kate's Joint a couple of weeks ago.
Did you see the film Dig? The guy from Psychic TV was hilarious...
...I've been listening to chrome a lot lately too.
Oh, and i'll be in the mont in a couple of weeks, we should do gack.

thanks for the kind words, much appreciated though i think the sauted brains of the Idiot's Guide would never claim to know what any kind of house was... us Somerset boys, for instance, have just about got our heads around dry stone walling...
