pure Digweed masterclass!


the BIR version used for the above mix is different to the official release however

For me, still the benchmark. Awesome stuff. And in '95. Can't fault it.

'Slippin' on the spot'?

My vote goes to Chelsea Season Thicket though.

I think you need to check your definition of contiguous because they actually are contiguous, the pin in the map being Fallowfield and Rusholme being the district above it:
https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Fal … a00ef4f56b

contiguous
kənˈtɪɡjʊəs/
adjective
sharing a common border; touching.
"the Southern Ocean is contiguous with the Atlantic"
synonyms:    adjacent, neighbouring, adjoining, bordering, next-door; More
next or together in sequence.
"five hundred contiguous dictionary entries"

Apologies Dave. I stand corrected. Thought you meant that the general shitness was also similar (although it's pretty close).

I beg your pardon, it is actually Fallowfield I am on about, but close enough to Rusholme, the two are contiguous.


Sorry, but no. This statement is way off the mark. I ventured to Fallowfield (south) and the ambience was much more serene. Still a good 8/10 on the 'fucking hell'-O-scale, but better than a 10!

Haha - yeah, forgot Rusholme - turned up there 25 years ago to stay with my mate who was in first year of Uni up there - the tarmac on his road ran out 2/3rds of the way along, just before his house which, in turn, had no front door.  There were more vehicles up on blocks than there were with wheels, bags of glue everywhere and a decapitated cat in the middle of the park over the road.  Just found it on Google maps - streetview suggests not much has changed - still haven't tarmacked the fucking road...

Ossory Street by any chance? Had my first digs there and stayed the summer. Within a month my mate got stabbed in the leg round the corner, and we lived at #2 which had an alley by the side of it, which backed onto the Offie on the corner. Scallies would always set fire to the bins out the back. Which was fun. Moved to Longsight/Levenshulme border after the knife incident. Didn't really increase the standards tbf.

Apologies - just double checked the map - the place I was referring to is LEEDALE STREET which is in Levenshulme - Rusholme's next door isn't it...

Haha... I moved from Ossory St to Hannah St.. which is about 10 yards on from Leedale St!!

Cracking boat. Not heard Shady - 'Pearls' out for..err.... 20 years!

Feel properly broken today mind.

This one always got an airing at the Boardwalk in Manc on Saturday nights in '94.

Read NME and MM from about 92-94. My Indie years. Then Mixmag, Muzik and then the interweb came into being.

Always love those papers though. Looking for Neds gigs etc...

Another season of 'doing quite well' until about March, and then royally fucking it up.



Ok.... I'm in.

I'm not a massive fan of their tunes. In fact I don't think I've bought a single one, but have to say that for those there, and the guys I've seen this week who watched, they nailed it. So what if they 'played all the things they usually do'... erm.. well, when I have seen bands and other acts, bizarrely they play their own tunes. Funny that.

Just because you don't like their music doesn't mean it's bad. Just saying like.....

Bosh!

But.... they do... Carlsberg Export. Would take that over Stella for non-lupiness.

And also alot of very nice reds... the Taragonna Gran reserva is something silly like £4.99. Fucking lovely quaffing stuff which is in the £7 bracket in other places. Had a few Riojas too which are about £5.99 and are also rather noice.

According to his interview tonight... you can audition for a presenter role in the 'new' TG. I think we should maybe have a vote on the board as to who we put forward to maybe do this role.

Minerals needed are:

A liking for cars

A real liking for cars.. otherwise you will easily get 'found out'

That's it......

I still think a good rack will help mind. Just MHO.

where there is footy, there are bets to be had.

I go to the TA boats more often than not. Ticket sorted for Nick Warren next month.

Electronic Sessions do some good ones too, which can have Guy J doing the business. Be wary that on occasion the other floor of these ones can have some god awful noise going on.

Must admit to finding it most distasteful the bullying Edward has had to endure recently.

Karma's a bitch eh? He's spouted plenty on plenty of threads, so needs to be able to suck it up too. IMO. Which I think he does admirably. Although shying away from comment is frowned upon tbh.

Snorky needs to chill I think. Otherwise a big hitter might say he's having a 'Reg'.

Jesus, people gush over old Sasha but what you're seeing in this video is the equivalent of a nightclub today playing David Guetta.  It's chart music - that first track was number 10 or something in the UK single charts.


I think it's called playing good music. If it's in the charts or not, good music is good music.

I was there, cracking night.
