Strudders has been called a thicket before and not by me. Doubtless it will crop up again, but in the best possible taste of course. It's a good-natured remark in the mischevious spirit of the board - you on the other hand, have a foul mouth and an inability to control it. The textbook internet warrior. When was the last time you contributed anything remotely constructive to proceedings? You seem to exist simply to insult and degrade others at every available opportunity.


The only absurd concept is why you continue to post here. It's very troubling indeed.

Apologies for causing confusion lads - after post 117, which happened to be by Loopy, I posted a response to 'nitron' highlighting (yet) another aspect of his moronic hypocrisy.  Ten minutes after having posted it I had a change of heart and decided the cunt wasn't even worth responding to so I deleted it.  As I was doing so 'nitron' happened to add his response and, when my deletion was complete, it looked like he might've been addressing Loopy.

Like I said, apologies for the confusion.

Only riffing off what other posters have said about you before. Pity you didn't get indignant about it then, I guess you simply pick and choose when to act all defensive when it suits your agenda.


Dictionary definition shit-cuntery.

You absolute cock-womble.

Pull your tongue out of his arsehole son, you're embarrassing yourself. He's a Wikitard, nothing more. I've forgotten more than he'll ever know on house music and it's related subjects. He, and you, aren't even on my radar.

Everything I know about the records I bought and battered 30 years ago I only know from reading Wikipedia?!

Listen to yourself you fucking idiot...

House music in it's current incarnation comes from Chicago, Detroit and New York.

It's 'current incarnation' in the broadest and most recognisable sense is EDM, which is as far from straight house as you can get. You haven't been in the least bit specific, except to talk about cities with a particular sound that centred around a handful of labels and DJ's. You're also completely wrong about house influencing the 2nd Summer of Love; at that specific point English culture was beginning a transitional phase which one could argue only really dropped off by the mid-part of the last decade. The genesis of the scene we know today was as much influenced by the balearic idea imported from Ibiza as anything else. It was a melting pot of styles and forms of which the US sound was an element, but not the driving force. For those of us who remember, the Manchester bands were a huge part of setting the scene for the 2nd Summer of Love and that can be traced back to Joy Division, New Order and the birth of Factory.

It's also erroneous to understate the connection between the American scene and disco. House in the US directly sprang from disco, no argument whatsoever. The most famous early house track was Steve Hurley's 'Jack Your Body' which straight lifted the bassline from Let No Man Put Asunder by First Choice, a disco classic. All the legends were disco DJ's: Levan, Knuckles, Farley Jackmaster, all of them.

I also love hearing Yanks bragging about how Chicago were the first to start using drum machines and synths. Kraftwerk were beta-testing the 808 as far back as 1984, before anyone had even heard of it. The Detroit lot even try to take credit for inventing the word 'techno' despite the NME mocking synth bands like Tangerine Dream with that word back in the 70's. Moroder and Cerrone completely owned the US scene by 1977 with the aptly named Eurodisco, clearly defined by the four to the floor layered with pure electronics. The extended play versions of tracks which became the standard 12 inch mix - essentially the birth of the remix - was conceived by Walter Gibbons, a white disco DJ and engineer who was also playing back to back breaks (beatmatched) at the same time as DJ Kool Herc, who often and mistakenly takes the credit for inventing it.


May I suggest that if your interpretation of anyone who offers insightful and well researched arguments which contradict your view is that they're 'trolling', then you stop trying to be clever on here and refrain from discussing anything.

Fuck off mate, that's bollocks. 

I was buying import 12"s from the States in '82/'83 that were based around the use of the 808 - ever heard of this (1982)?!

Or, more blatantly, this... (1984)?

Even Marvin Gaye's 'Sexual Healing' (1982) had a fucking 808 line in it for fuck's sake...

So am i reading correct here, that spoon-fed comment was directed at me?

What a cry-baby, boo-hoo Big Fella hasn't commented on my mix. Maybe you should be worried about Presto's comments. Seeing he is such an oracle on dance music.

Massive lol.

My post addressed 'cunts' in the plural.  I'm happy for you include yourself in their number though for sure.

And you bothered searching it out from 10 weeks ago halfway down page two or wherever it is now?!

I'm guessing something in it must've touched a nerve - can't for the life of me think what - a description of something or someone uncomfortably close to home maybe...

Tell you what Fella - quote it up here on this thread and give everybody the benefit of what you find so amusing...

Got some time to plough through some of the mixes from this forum - umpteen to catch up on - this was my first one and it's a belter - loads of great records all mixed really nicely.

Cheers Hannu - thanks for sharing.
