Big upz x 2

As ever, Audio Shrapnel (aka Lez Adams, aka LezDoctor aka The King) excels himself. For example, years ago & still bugging me to this day, there was this Depth Charge-type record Coldcut used to hammer on their KissFM 'Solid Steel' shows, a TV-themed 'Black Beauty' bootleg which 'scaled' (you could play it at 33 or 45, one reason for keeping your vinyl, as Lez sez, "You can't really do that with CDs!) Couldn't find it on Google, then Lez waved his wand:- Horsepower 'Bolt'. Lez has also just compiled the sickest CD snippets of old skool/archive Mike Allen and C-c-c-c-Capital Radio shows including the FIRST EVER Capital Rap show with Westwood where John Sachs hands over "Live from the Limelight!", all pre-Alan Partridge I'll have you know! The shows are pure 'Starbucks Effect', it's not so much the tunes played, it's all the media around them i.e. the DJ chat, adverts, jingles etc. TEARING!!!

Props as well to Tim for sorting my page on 'Myspace'. Had a great time with Tim the other weekend, DJ-ing together for a firing Guy Fawkes night in Newcastle (pictured left/both bleary eyed the morning after).

Good to catch up, swap toons on the train back home & reminisce - geez, was it really '92 when I gently coaxed Tim (then, in full Utah Saints swing) to present MTV's Party Zone while VJ Simone was on holiday? As I mentioned before, Tim really got me thinking about Serrato and the future of DJ-ing, trashing your vinyl etc. Interesting to read in DJ Mag's 'Top 100 DJs of 2005' issue on the train back how practically everyone, when asked about 'Technology' and their set, nearly all 100 had ditched vinyl, were using CDs and/or fully laptop presshah! I think it was only ATB (in the top 10) who still swore by his vinyl and maintained that digitial technology wasn't doing it for him; respect!
