"blankety blank, blankety blank..."

here's something i should have bought earlier in the year, but managed to find it second hand and in mint condition last week for £3. i didn't know whether to post it here or in mouldy disco, ie. it's not new but it's not old either. however, it is a fantastic compilation and i suggest you buy it.

of all the edit(or)s out there i find these releases to be consistently the best. the popular people's front have been putting stuff out in wonderful sleeves since 2004. they're made up of leo zero (who also does the artwork), chris duckenfield and bill brewster. they seem to take the best bits of tracks and weld them into something new, rather than just looping a classic disco record (which a lot of lazy edits do). available at juno and piccadilly. i should have posted this 2 weeks ago because most places have sold out now. piccadilly also had limited quantities of "back to back" from 2005. seems they've gone too. sorry.

double bubble

some of those kids at oki-ni (a constant source of amusement) have jumped ship and opened ln-cc. they sell some crazy looking clothes for big bucks, and also records and books. they've hooked up with international feel to produce a t-shirt that comes with the label's first cd. there are a couple of exclusives amongst the 9 tracks (10, if you include the interlude) and it all comes in a box with some friendship bracelets, but i'm not a hippy so i chucked them away. if you don't want a t-shirt the cd is available on it's own. you can also get it from juno/piccadilly/phonica.
