07:48 pm - I'm doing fitness...
Hi my names Nay, I live in Australia and I totally love the whole manchester scene from the 80s anyho the actual reason I joined this community is because, on the weekend I was out with my friends and it was about 4 in the morning, anyho, there's this guy waiting in front of us at the cab rank and he's pretty mental, got this strange english accent and just kind of weird in general, pretty drugged up, so he starts talking to us about random crap and yeah I knew he looked familiar... And then about 10 minutes later, after we were in a cab I was like 'SHIT THAT WAS BEZ FROM HAPPY MONDAYS!', but now I'm doubting myself, it sure as hell looked like him, but what the fuck would he be doing in Australia? All I can think of is he's mkaing some sort of guest appearance on our big brother which is currently airing? I don't know I'm completely baffled.

I'm relatively new to the whole AcidJazz/Trip Hop thing, so I'm looking to you guys for suggestions.

Names I'm familiar with :

Stereo MC's
Massive Attack
Primal Scream

I'm sure there are others I dig that fall into this category but I can't think of them anyway, here's where you lovelies come into play.

Tell me some stuff I'll like, that's along the same vein as the above groups. Please?

10:54 am - great New Order news...
Quote from the Channel 4 Teletext:

New Order's new album is being produced by Stephen Street and John Leckie.

Street has worked with Morrissey and Blur, while Leckie produced Radiohead's The Bends and The Stone Roses' debut.

Tony Wilson told PS: "They're both excellent choices. John Leckie is great at crafting big, stupid songs, and I mean that in a good way. Stephen, I know from his work with Vini Reilly, is a fine craftsman. I hate New Order, because they're always right!"
Current Mood: ha ha happiness
Current Music: scissor sisters "comfortably numb"

OK.  So I am sitting here at work, listening to the 24 Hour Party People soundtrack.  I don’t have to be reminded of the genius that is/was/always will be Factory Records.  Believe me, I know.  But, every time I read the liner notes to the cd, penned by one Mr. Anthony H. Wilson, I am reminded of just how genius, fragile, creative and genius the Factory operation is/was/always will be.  I said genius twice…I am aware of that.  It is called making a fucking point.

Meanwhile, I am also sitting here trying to figure out how to get Shag Frenzy going.  Wilson knew what was going on when he stayed loyal to Manchester and created The Factory and The Hacienda nightclubs there.  He could have gone to London, sure, but he didn’t.  Manchester is the birthplace of modern club culture, from the indie discos to the raves off the motorways.  For better or worse (you decide), Factory gave us Joy Division, New Order, Happy Mondays, The Stone Roses, The Smiths, Oasis, Vick’s Vapo-Rub, glowsticks, trance techno, drum & bass, Ecstasy, baggy pants, multi-coloured t-shirts that look like detergent adverts, etc.  Modern indie and club culture owes everything to Factory. 

Shag Frenzy owes everything to Factory.  Shag Frenzy should stay loyal and try to build it up around Hartford.  There is nothing for the kids to do.  Nowhere in this area can you go hear a night filled with Northern Soul, Britpop, Baggy, Indie, whatever.  We are run down with goth nights and bad Dave Matthews Band-sounding hippie bands.  The goths and hippies are scenesters…they want to dress up and take drugs and blah blah blah.  Most of them probably are not passionate about the music.  I am passionate about the music.   The music must be heard, just like The Hacienda Must Be Built.

Oh, and by the way, “Here To Stay”, the newest New Order song that closed out the film, gives me shivers the same way I get shivers when I hear “Love Will Tear Us Apart” or when I see Paul Weller singing “In The City” in 1977 on The Complete Jam DVD.  The revolution, and the shivers, have begun.  Hang on for the ride.

After all, and to quote Neil Tennant, “we were never being boring…”

Current Mood: viva! revolution!
Current Music: Joy Division "Love Will Tear Us Apart"

Here's my request: make me a tracklisting for a Factory Records & Madchester mix (I mean one in the same...you probably get it, but I'm paranoid). I'm in the mood for one and too lazy to put it together myself. Thanks very much!
Current Mood: lazylazy
Current Music: The Charlatans
