Call for LWP4 Participants
Music: Posted: 25/1/03 20:55 Author: Scabrous Birdseed Comments: 82 Comments

Hello all potential participants in our most cherished forum game, LWP, where the aim is to compile a CD of tracks that the participants for the most part cannot discern the origin of, both artist-wise and sender-wise. And then review them. Sign up below!

The gimmick that we've decided on for this round is "one you hate". Based on that, each participant will have to be willing to fill between 11 and 19 minutes of time with music from their record collection, consisting of: (a) one song that they really dislike and (b) as many songs as they want that they like. Please don't make (a) too obvious- guessing the supposed duds is all part of the cheerful paranoia of this activity.

Deadline for participant roll call will be Sunday the second of february- time will be allocated based on the number of participants at this point. So, all of you that have music and a CD writer, sign up for hours of strange reviewing fun.

Free MP3 of the week(ish) - Drum and Bass
Music: Posted: 23/1/03 17:22 Author: Funkodrom Comments: 2 Comments

Whilst stumbling along at that other forum I came across a poster with a link to an address in his signature. Checked it out. He's doing some crazy drum and bass stuff. Anyway hist first song is great so I thought I'd make it free mp3 of the week.

Downloading music good for the music industry

From Guardian Online

"Faced with an industry in freefall, what should one do? One option would be to have a look at the facts about how it affects Britain. But first, a question. By how much do you think record sales fell in Britain last year - by 20%, 10% or 5%?"

Free MP3 of the week Straight outta Hobbiton

Quickbeam and Bombadil are the Lords of the Rhymes. I guess that even Scabby would have to agree that this is a novelty record. A Lord of the Rings rap. Some of it's in Elvish.

The Revenge of Music Phase Two: Cross-Over
Music: Posted: 14/1/03 00:22 Author: Scabrous Birdseed Comments: 40 Comments

Yesterday, "Danger! High Voltage" by Electric 6 reached #2 on the UK Singles chart. Last week, Sean Paul's "Gimme the Light" was chosen as Sara Cox's Record of the Week and moved up to the Radio One B Playlist. Today, "Mundia To Bach Ke" by Panjabi MC was released as major-label single and is hotly tipped for success.

What do all of these tracks have in common? They've all originated from the shapeless and fractured genre ghetto into which the impoverishment of commercial music in the late nineties pushed all creative forces. All of them are consistently too "weird" to have reached major public success in the last 20 years ago. And all of them, with the possible exception of the Electric 6 single, have reached the top through a continual slow buildup over a long period of time, with clubland and radio play forming the commercial base and no major-artist marketting money.

Teeny-bop, commerical dance and boy bands are dying as commercial forces. Instead audiences are waking up to the possibility of singles growing out of the minority genres, the cream of each one's crop reaching the listeners of the mainstream. With the internet having effectively killed off the limiting constraints of major-label access control, we're looking at a bright, diverse future indeed. Look out soon for phase three: the cross-breeding of all the genres.

Free MP3 of the week
Music: Posted: 13/1/03 16:14 Author: Funkodrom Comments: 2 Comments

This one doesn't really fit the rules of free mp3 of the week because it's streaming not downloadable. What the hell. At least it was suggested by someone else, this time PosterBoy. Go here: and click music then play Goodbye Love. It's UK country apparently... Hmmm.

Police find 'Get Back' tapes
Music: Posted: 11/1/03 12:23 Author: Scabrous Birdseed Comments: 3 Comments

Confusing news story this. In a joint operation between british and dutch fuzz, initiated by the IFPI for some reason, the tapes from the legendary mess that was the Beatles' \"Get Back\" session in 1968 have been recovered from somewhere where apparently they'd been held. Details are scant.
