yeesss.... out power is such a relevant couple of words at the moment.. me, rach and the blouse and rubicon krews had A LOT of out power on sat night.. and ended up with bruises on our knees as a result. (actually i cant claim any bruises- they all ended up on rach's knees hahahaha).. awesome night though- the rubicon boys put a madd show on son.

im also stoked to say that the power to my computer is temporarily out power cos some brothers taking out some cupboards near our sparkling new area happened to take the power out as well.. ddaammnnn

joining us with plenty of out power last thursday was brenton- a creative director from my work.
we went out in an attempt to see uk proggy house stalwart dave seaman and protege nic fanciulli but were somewhat put off by the 100m line out the front.
so, we caught the bus over to our hood and into fringe bar...
what a mad night- hearing brentons stories of growin up back in pop n' lock'n adelaide with a ghetto blaster on his shoulder was awesome.. and weirdly coincidental with me getting a whole heap of old skool rock, dance and hip hop sent to me.. (actually.. not so weird cos brenton sent a fair bit of it to me..)
so, thought id do the right thing and share some of this old skool brilliance with y'all.. i cant put everything up but will chuck a couple up. This first track is a reallllly early house track- one of brentons faves. very awesome track- but certainly makes me realise how much house music has changed

Follow Me - Aly-Us

also... you might remember this track from one of the first buttfu*k mixes that gus da hoodrat did for the awesome bang gang podcast series

Do Ya Like Scratchin' - World's Famous Supreme Team

how much more genuine did music seem back in the day? i love it

you might also remember a band called Flock of Seagulls from their song 'I Ran'.. awesome iconic 80's track.. they sort of remind me of the cure a bit- but in a more electro-y/80's synth-y pop way.. awesome combo.
props to austin for introducing me to the magic of Flock of Seagulls.

Flock of Seagulls - I Ran

Flock of Seagulls - Lost Control (Totally)

ps go to fluokids and check out the mad cover that hot chip did of 'sensual seduction' by snoooo--oop!.. not everyone was digging it but i thought it was fun.

gonna post up a MASSIVE* vfest post soon- hold your breaths..
no guarantee on the actual size of the blog entry, now the number of tracks shared.. might actually be small
