    So you're in Manchester on Friday then? That's boring. I thought you'd be in some ocean somewhere on a boat.

    Yeah, I know. The ship I'm on is undergoing some major conversion and re-fitting work in......exotic......Birkenhead. It should have been Italy but the pound got recessioned and it became too expensive.

    Next time, I should be going somewhere a bit more exciting though. On the positive side, I'm going to see Den Haan on Friday and Bob Dylan next week.

  • That's a pretty cool idea.
  • ^DFA 1979's loss is MSTRKRFT's gain....
  • me listen to mister Iggy Pop and the Cramps all afternoon-now onto Bob Dylan as I have a ticket to see the man himself next Sat-just hope he's not as pish live as everyone has taken pleasure in telling me... he'd still be a legend tho.
  • Dan Sartain, The Whitest Boy Alive, Mice Parade, The Knife and Green Velvet. Oh and a bit of Bon Iver.
  • Just been listening to a bit of Cramps myself never seems to age. RIP Lux

    i went to berlin to see them a couple of years ago. one of the best gigs i have ever seen. they were on for about1.5 hours, last night of there tour, home gig at a mates club. did some nice covers of daft punk and reel 2 reel. amazin.
  • I've been listening to Thre Whitest Boy Alive's new album and it's really good. For me, they're up there with Bon Iver.

    I've also got a ticket to see Bob Dylan on friday night so I have my fingers crossed. I saw him a few years ago in Osaka and he was pretty good so I expect more of the same.

    Today, seeing as I'm a little hungover, I'm listening to Tom Waits' early albums.

    i've heard that about mstrkrft. hopefully they will not be too smashed.

    zombie nation? still goin, jeez, dude brought out one of the biggest/cheeser techno tracks about 10 years ago. as for DD, crookers playing there in a fortnight. now those two guys can play records.

    as for having no headphones? was he playing off a laptop? its amazin what they can do for you these days.....i dont trust dj's with laptops. saying that mstrkrft will prob be using them.
  • yes they do, and no ZN was playing a mixture of vinyl and MP3 stuff, he was also using one of the biggest midi controllers ive ever seen!

    good, stuff, i like to see a DJ handle the records, CD's even just not piss about with a laptop for an hour. good skills with no headphones like, my mate does it a bit but it takes him ages to get a few mixes down he knows will go. no way a full set could be done.

    hopefully i will be able to make crookers. seen them last year at field day in london but they were not on for long enough. should be a good night.
  • Quite a lot of DJs use Albeton Live now. You set up warp markers for each track and they pretty much mix themselves. Some people think of it as a cheats way to do it but the people who use it, including Sasha, say that it allows them to be more creative and not just mix tracks but make music. I've had a play about with it and it's pretty nifty. It takes a long time to mark out a 6 minute track though. Imagine if your library of thousands of warped tracks got erased without a backup. That would send most DJs back to vinyl for good I think.
  • richie hawtin - king of ableton. fact. he pretty much pioneered it and worked with the mixer company (heath and allen or something) to make a mixer capable of his skills. guy is a legend. one of the only dj's who when using a laptop/abelton you no is actually getting something done. musically tho he has gone far too minimal for my liking over the last few years. although his dex, fx and 909 album still remains a must listen for all techno lovers.

    I've had a couple of Ableton lessons and it's clever stuff. It does take ages to mark out tracks though.

    You can auto-warp and then adjust the warps but if you want to get them at exactly the right point in the wave form you have to find, zoom, adjust, un-zoom, etc, etc, etc.

    I'm really liking the Tortoise/Bonnie Prince Billy and Matt Sweeney/Bonnie Prince Billy albums at the moment. Both are superb.
  • the new one i got is "beware" its pretty good however i am undecided to where it lies on comparison to previous albums.
  • I keep meaning to get some Bonnie Prince Billy and Tortoise, or basically anything Will Oldham has been involved in. But when it comes to buying music I always forget.

    Anyway, I'm currently listening to Loveless but might switch to something David Pajo flavored after this.
