So apologies if you didn’t know my radio show was on this weekend - I didn’t get confirmation of times until Saturday afternoon, and by then it was far too late to update this here blog! It was a good show, I think, really random selection of ace music from ambient to disco to indie to reggae to hip-hop to funk to blues to moombahton, drum & bass and dubstep. It’ll be up on the archives at radio.spiritplants.org/archives shortly, no doubt. Until then, why not stream or download (right click, save as) some previous shows? There’s bound to be something you’ll dig. I’d hope.
Hackney Wicked art festival was this weekend – A strange experience, and not at all what I expected from a Hackney festival (no reggae soundsystems, for one thing, although there was a steel band), but it was jolly good to get drunk in the street with some friends. I also watched a few films – Bomb It, which is an awesome graffiti documentary, 127 Hours, which was very good, and you no doubt know about already, and The Resident, which is one of the new Hammer film productions, and distinctly average, despite the presence of Christopher Lee.
Anyway, keep watching this space, should be some interesting content any day soon
