K00lnis !

I just picked up a few goodies from Newbury Comics and am listening to a Luaka Bop 2002 promo compilation that came free with another CD (The Only Blip Hop Record You Will Ever Need, Vol. 1) that I got. Anyway, there's a track by the Super Eagles, a Gambian group from the 60s that sounds like garage rock backed by James Brown's drummer. Cool stuff !

Also got the new Meat Beat Manifesto record R.U.O.K., but was thwarted in finding the seasonally appropriate Hallowe'en Dub (under the Tino name, a side-project of Jack Dangers of MBM and video director/DHS guy Ben Stokes). I need to get that and burn a little MP3 CD to loop for Hallowe'en night. Anybody have any other good Halloween effects/party records ?

I want to set an atmosphere, not traumatize the neighborhood ! Besides, we still have S0's candy from last year to give away, so we want to attract kids, not drive them away !

All I've got right now is a short party CD from Rhino, so it would be most appreciated. We can arrange for some sharing to happen...

By coincidence, I've been listening to MBM's "Storm The Studio" a lot in the past few weeks. It still sounds very fresh, especiallly the proto-jungle of "I've Got The Fear (part 1)".

I recall that I hated the album that came out after 99% (was it called Satyricon? All I remember is that he sang and it was less edgy and reminded me of Depeche Mode) and never listened to anything after that. Is the new one any good?

Still listening to it
Well, I think he's never to be that edgy again, it's just something that's hard to sustain. Storm the Studio came out, when, in 1989 ? It's still an amazing album. "Now" from 99% never fails to move me and "Radio Babylon" is a massive dub track from the same era than is the blueprint for "Papua New Guinea" by Future Sound of London and early drum and bass.

I actually didn't mind the vocals on Satyricon, and I think he raps/speaks in a good way, but the last few albums have had almost completely instrumental. I always liked his lyrics and I miss that.

The new one continues in the vein of spacey, long instrumentals with lots of great (real) drum work and more live performance than sampling, with the usual classic electro and dub touches, although it's stripped down and less influenced by fusion than the last album. Alex Paterson of the Orb helps out on one track.
