Warp have signed a new act recently. Second one this year? Or was Hudson Mohawke last year? Anyway, Pivot are some guitar, drum and electronic action who have supported Battles on their recent Australian tour. Pivot will be over in Europe soon and an album will be out later this year. Check them out on their myspace page.

I went to see Be Kind Rewind this weekend. Its pretty funny. Basically Mos Def works in a video store and his buddy Jack Black comes in and wipes up all the tapes, so they make their own versions of the movies. Its pretty funny, its also quite a sad film as well! If you like the work of Michel Gondry, then go and see it. Above is the sweded version of the trailer by Michel Gondry. Its pretty good.

EDIT: I’ve just been listening to this and its really good! The Trevor Jackson mix is fantastic.
I went to see Dizzee Rascal in Newcastle at the weekend. I thought it was going to be rubbish, but I was wrong. Arrived to find Little Plastic halfway through their set. I didn’t think they were very good. They just seemed to be shouting and not really rapping in time to the beat. Sorry guys. NExt came Newham Generals, who were bloody awesome! Some cracking tunes and their tunes were heavy on the bass! Finally it came to Dizzee and he didn’t disappoint at all. He did all the big tunes from Boy In Da Corner and Maths + English and only a couple of tunes from Showtime. Oldskool was hella dope. The crowd were well into the show as well. All in all I had a really good time and thought it was an excellent gig. Well worth going to see him again. Anyway, enjoy the video for I Luv U.
Here is the tracklisting for Three by Portishead.
We carry on
It seems like Giallos Flame have been dropped from DC Recordings. Oh well, I was looking forward to the album coming out on vinyl, but he has gone and done things himself and you can buy it straight from the man through his Myspace page! Brilliant. Not heard it yet, but the track you can listen to on the page is pretty scary! Awesome. Hoping to get this asap. Its more of the horror soundtrack stuff. All synths and amazing drums!
Oh yeah, its only a tenner as well.
