Two attempts at the Muslim-immigration ban - both beaten down by US Judges.  The repeal of ObamaCare beaten down by his own colleagues.  How's that wall you talked about coming on Donald...?

Tusk is such a gimmick of the times.

Gimmick?  They (and Porn Wax and Tusk Wax) knock out some great tunes.  Could do with more 'gimmicks' like that far as I'm concerned...

Missed this last summer but better late than never - frothy, jangly, guitars and slightly odd lyrics...  smile

How come hardly anybody's jumping in on this...?

always loved the BBC interview when he rated one of his early hardcore tunes next to 'strings of life'.


Fail

Not seeking an argument at all, and I don't think I've heard the BBC clip you refer to, but I would suggest that for a great many people a lot of early hardcore/jungle/d'n'b WAS more influential than Strings Of Life.

Plenty of time elapsed after Strings Of Life before jungle started emerging and loads of the subsequent jungle/d'n'b scene may well never have heard Strings Of Life, let alone revered it for the techno anthem it is...

Out of curiosity, can you remember whether the track he was gushing over was this one...

Out of interest, what was it - sounded vaguely like a remix of something by K-Klass or Sunscream...

It's P-C-L - When You're Moving.

Ah, ok - it's basically Atlantic Ocean's 'Waterfall' with a vocal thrown over the top isn't it?!

I basically know the square root of fuck all about art but, about fifteen years ago, I had a mate, from New York, tell me all about Mark Rothko and his stuff - found it fascinating and took the opportunity to see some of his work for the first time when Tate Modern had a big exhibition six or seven years ago - loved it - big Rothko fan me - 'Black on Maroon' for me (the one in the middle)...
