Shits and Giggles

A real mish-mash of information and shared delights for you today. I think we’ll start with something that is becoming a bit of a legendary occurrence annually (yes, I said annually)…

Remember that time Daphne and Celeste got bottles of piss thrown at them at Reading Festival? What about the time G-Unit got the the same treatment? Well, this year it was the turn of emo band My Chemical Romance! They got what was described as a “heavy bottling”. Be great to hear from any eye witnesses, but supposedly it was a pretty constant torrent of bottles, golf balls, and fruit, through out their set on the main stage. Still, it’s all fun and games till someone loses a bollock.

Let us now forget about My Chemical Romance, and randomly I’ll share with you a track from Dabrye‘s 2001 album One/Three. This chap is a master of the instrumental hip-hop, although his angle leans more towards Prefuse 73 than say Wax Tailor. Enjoy this one on the rizzle…

Uh-oh, seems My Chemical Romance weren’t the only casualties at Reading Festival. Panic! At The Disco front man Brendan Urie got hit smack-bang in the face by a bottle, just seconds into their set. Apparently it knocked him out cold for a few seconds. Seriously, violence isn’t cool, but the immature fart-joke part of me cant help by chuckle a bit at the thought of some guy just getting into a sing-song, then hitting the deck like his bones suddenly gained 500lbs – perhaps like those goats that faint all the time! Anyway, don’t throw bottles at people… if you can help it.

Have you heard of All Good Funk Alliance? No? You’re dearly missing out. Frank Cueto and Russell Belicek formed this downtempo funk group in 97, but it’s their 2006 album Social Comment that has grabbed me by the balls – a brilliant combination of funk, breakbeat, hip-hop, and downtempo sounds. Be sure to check out their MySpace page, and here’s a taster for you now…

    Digging the Dabrye, I like the thick samples. It’s like “how many different frequencies can we put in to one noise?”
