New Coseph video, shot in the dutch sahara. The wind and sand combination was really something. I thought I could feel the whole island being moved slowly but surely, grain by grain, east towards Denmark:

Track from the (very shortly) forthcoming paper round tapes volume three.
No prizes for guessing the original artist though.

Dear friends,

it is a great honour and a privilege today to release a 12″ for the mighty mighty Punch Drunk

…and especially cool to be the twenty-third release.  Appropriate dedications are carved into the runout groove.

It’s hard to be objective about your own work, but I’m very happy with the tracks, and super-pleased to be back on vinyl again. Huge shout out to the one and only Peverelist for making it happen….

Here’s the A side ‘Rollercoasters Of The Heart’:

and here’s the flip: ‘so cruel’:

yeah I missed some weeks. deal with it.

I only ever knew one other person who had this song (on 7″, scratchy from being well loved and well played (I’m talking about the record here by the way)), my erstwhile agent and guru, papa chiz.

Back when we had an irregular (in every sense) night called Got Giddy, we often spent happy hours and eardrums djing back-to-back to close out the evening, and this was a killer song to end on.

I mean, ‘Wink’?!
Apparently he was most famous as a TV quiz show host. Can you imagine Henry Kelly busting out a bizarro beautiful and totally sincere spoken word 7″ epic about his time in the army in africa?

“and friends, the story is true…”

p.s. he also has an amazing song called ‘moon river’. NOT a cover, it’s his own demented unintentionally psychedelic lullaby. Go look.

Magic in and on the air (again)

Posted in Blog with tags on June 1, 2011 by magicanddreams

Tonight as the witching hour arrives, the mighty Huwest of the Stephens will be broadcasting a cassette special

I went to Radio 1 a couple of weeks back, to ramble and fly the M+D flag, some of which may end up in the show, hopefully along with a track.
