Whoops! / Through Being Cool

Well, it's been a while 'tween posts. What can I say? Between working and preparing to move house I've had no free time to blog or write, which is certainly frustrating to say the least. To make up for this, here's a jam-packed post filled with goodies and links.

* It's the first Saturday of the month, which means Through Being Cool at The Orwell tonight. Join sioux-elin and myself for records galore, a drink or two, and a swell time. Oh, and we've got a lurvely new logo too courtesy of Will Kane. So, come along kids...

Through Being Cool @ The Orwell
382 Essex Rd
N1, London
9pm - 2am

Oh, it's FREE! (hey, even the Nice kids give props too, Skeff Anselm style)

* Ghostface's newie Fishscale has sprung up on tha net and My Old Kentucky Blog has two of the tracks (both Just Blaze productions as well), plus the latest woozy opus from Secret Machines.

* Finally saw Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire this week. Damn fine film, particularly the performances from Dr Who, and Jarvis and the two 'Heads as The Wyrd Sisters (not the folk group). I don't think I can resist reading the books for much longer now, especially as the fourth installment is heavily abridged. Roll on Order of The Phoenix.

* If you come along to TBC tonight you'll probably hear 'Rapping Dub Style' from this new collection from the guys and gals at Soul Jazz. Uptight? Alright.

* Classic album of the week? No contest. Guru and Preemo all the way.
