I was lucky cos the first people who ever played me a load of YouTube videos one after the other for caned laffs were Noah Lennox & Ariel Rosenberg, which is kinda funny when you think about it. 2005, I suppose. My good fortune continues now that Man From Uranus lives downstairs as he is [...]

Bless Dave he’s got round to sorting out the oft-threatened selectation duties for a new Um release, cos he reckons he can do the honours better than me or anyone else. Last week he sent me a 22 minute mix saying it was more or less definitive but last I heard (yesterday) he was on [...]

Had a bit of a reggae windfall this week. I’m getting used to the heartache of seeing a box of records lying about in Resale, falling upon them like Indiana Jones, but then being told they are still to be looked at and then never seeing them again. The other week there was a box [...]

Some people assert that the Man From Uranus ouevre, being at least in part reliant on the artistic fiction of a cosmological backdrop, lacks some sort of philosophical weight. Personally I think this view is, quite frankly, spacist.

I have a nasty birthday next week, so I’m in party activist mode this week trying to make sure the damn thing has food and music and guests and stuff. As I’m super stinko-poor I haven’t bought hardly any records in about a year and a half apart from a couple of charity-shop things that [...]

If you want to see me on the 25th I’m afraid it’s going to cost you £32. Also, apologies to anyone who plays guitar.
