I quite like both. The UK Garage one is well-knownish, though, which is a bit of a plus.

Whenever I've posted reviews of bands no-one's heard of the threads have slowly sunk, commentless, like so many ill-contructed buoys.

And, er, own goal.

Why don't you write a compare and contrast style review.

I'm thinking of usig tracks from one or both for LWP3, so this'll have to wait for now.

People will hate you for that since garage is the second worst form of music after country.

I need to include some cool country tracks as well then. Good country's awesome.

Actually, it's not really a Garage album. It's a dancehall-garage-urban RnB crossover album. I'm sure it'll still annoy the white-rock purists, though.

I got a King Tubby album and a Miles Davis album for 2 each in London yesterday. Normal CD prices here are normally 15 each.

I wish I had some time on the LWP3 thing. Maybe I could get Funko to take something.

I dont DJ at all, I am a drummer. I was drumming for a live d'n'b outfit in the UK. I shared a stage with Ronni Size, Fabio, Grooverider, Andy C etc.

I didn't get paid though so I haven't done it again. I have gone back to my musical roots recently and I am playing in a rock band.

I used to live across the street from Roni Sizes mother, met him a few times too. I'll be signing autographs later:)

"Here"? I do live in england you know. Well, for seven months of the year, probably more once I've finished university.

And it's 14 unless they've raised the prices over the summer.

King Tubby, good choice! Not an enormous Dub fan to be honest (at least not compared to most other jamaican music), but the early period has some kicking stuff... I love a good Deejay record.
