It was a long, tough slog at work this week, truth being that night & day just seemed to blur into one another and suddenly I realized that I was back mainlining black coffee… So finding out ‘BLUEBIRD BLACKOUT’ was voted song of the week on MashStix was the perfect tonic this melancholic slash caffiend needed… Fast forward a couple of weeks, August 21st to be exact & I’ve just found out that this little track was voted Bootleg of the Month for July 2008 @ SOUND-UNSOUND. Think I’m gonna celebrate, pour myself a giant pot of black Joe….mmmmm……

BLUEBIRD BLACKOUT – Charles Bukowski vs Muse

It has been suggested to me recently…on more than a couple of occasions that my mashes sonically lean towards that of a melancholic disposition…Is that a reflection of me?
Has my heart been broken in the past? Is my glass half empty?
Will I eat a gun someday?… Answers on the back of a postcard please…

Anyhow, I guess this one is all about a writer & muse…

Charles Bukowski – Bluebird

Muse – Blackout
All Angels – Flower Duet
Bob Dylan – Man of Constant Sorrow

Big thanks to The Who Boys for featuring Beatlemania & Nancy gets Banged
on Saturday Night with The Who Boys – Show32.

Their almost ‘Live’ (ish) legendary Podcast, promises an evening of good music (mashup, drum and bass, dub, rock, folk, avant-garde, electronic, easy-listening),
great lager and dodgy conversation… Truth is, it’s better than Porn and almost as good as Michael Landon!… Oh yeah and they’re black belts in Action Smoking

Forget Why? Think Who?
