Going through a Posting Videos Only stage at the mo. This seems to happen every now and then, usually when I’m knackered and dealing with Real Life Crap, like work. God I hate work. Someone give me some money and I’ll do blogging for a living…
Another video from Stanton Warriors today. They seem to be throwing out vids every couple of weeks, to promote new album The Warriors, which is out now. I highly recommend getting it, as it’s one of the best things I’ve heard this year and is one of the only things keeping me sane right now.
When I first heard Street Sounds in ’86 I was a long haired metal kid and to say it was a shock to my musical system is an understatement. It kicked all I knew about music firmly in the head. Stu had a copy of it on cassette and he actually did play it to me on his ‘boom box’. Even though I was a rock kid at heart, I still appreciated other music in my head and the shit that was going on with this just blew me away. White English kids didn’t hear this sort of music on Radio One!
Short of making me buy Kangol and sneakers this is probably one of the most influential albums for me. Ok I slipped in and out of rawrk music again, abandoning this sort of stuff for a while, but it shaped my future music taste more than I could know then. Still class after 25 years
You really need to own this album. Most of the stuff you listen to now is either ripped off from, or heavily influenced by the artists here.

Boom! Pictures speak a thousand words, they say (whoever THEY are) and the artwork for Jupiter’s new single ‘Sake’ is a fine example of what THEY mean. ‘Sake’ explodes out at you, in a non lethal pop eruption, while much like the drink itself it takes a little time to grab you, but when it does you’re on the dance floor, flaunting yourself in a red catsuit (or at least that’s what happened to me).
The single is out now, featuring remixes from Para One & Tacteel, In Flagranti, Hannulelauri, Blackjoy and Electricty. There’s also a nice little remix from Anoraak that you can get free below

This is some great stuff right here. Silent H! is Thom Hodkinson from here in the UK and he’s been producing tunes since 2010. Starting out in breaks, he switched his allegiance and started throwing out electro bangers like those on his new EP Monstrumental. It’s out now on THaF Records, so you know that you’re getting some pedal to the metal tuneage that will rip the roof off your house. THaF just don’t do subtle and that’s why I love them more and more with each release.
