The Listening Club - 26th November 2017

Greetings folks,

Hope all are fine. Wet and moody here in Amsterdam, so staying in and enjoying @nessiest's finest soup experiments is the order of the day. Neglected last week to discuss the upcoming bits and bobs on twitter, so I'll just repost what I wrote last week to remind myself...

Advance notice warning alert - M'self and that @nessiest are going away for a long trip over Dec / Jan to faraway climes (mainly Japan and New Zealand), which means we could really do with a guest manager (or several) for a few Sundays, at the very least 17th Dec & 7th Jan, as looking at the calendar (god I hate it when it reaches that time of the year), this year Xmas Eve and NYE are Sundays, which is rather inconvenient for #LC-ing, so we could take a couple of weeks off and do the Trad #xmasvortex on 7th Jan? Please voice your opinions. Whatever happens, we'll need some help...

Okaydoke, last week in the land of #LC, that @Saucer was in the chair, going for something rather bleepy with his pick of Smagghe & Cross's "Timothy Dalton", which went down pretty well for the most part. Thanks to him for the pick and for flipping the frisb across to @xpollen8, who is here with this week's intro...

"Presented for your tolerant consideration is a conceptual piece - a meditation on capitalism.  This was an early cassette-only release by a guy who could lay claim to having invented the modern mash-up when he discovered that a popular 60's instrumental track was the same BPM and duration as a particular rap artist's vocal track.

Hilarity ensued and a genre was spawned.

What you are about to hear is not a mash-up, but is indicative of the playfulness and experimentation of this artist. (I also have in my collection his wax-cylinder release)

If you like Negativland or Plunderphonics, then you may enjoy this. If you're here for deep grooves or guitar virtuosity, then you will be disappointed."

See you 8pm GMT.
