I love Thriller by Michael Jackson. I think it is the first album that I ever got into. I remember requesting it to be played all the time one family holiday. I think it got banned after a while. Anyway, I think Human Nature is probably one of my favourite tracks from it.

I’m totally excited about this. Sam Rockwell is an excellent actor and one of my favourites too. Clint Mansell has done the score for this. The poster for this movie is amazing. It sounds like it has an amazing story! Roll on! This is probably going to be my movie for the summer.
Edan has returned with another radio show. Expect to hear some hip hop, soul, funk, psych and whatever else he feels like playing. If you are offended by the excessive use of reverb or bad language, then don’t listen in. You can download this through his myspace announcements or by the link below.

Details of the new Lone album have been released via his myspace page. The new album is called ‘Ecstasty And Friends” and will be out on Werkdiscs at the end of July or the beginning of August. Can’t wait to hear this. The Joyreel/Sunset Teens 12″ is out now and is banging. Perfect Summer time music. Anyway, the tracklisting is below.

After a brief conversation with my friend Tian last night. I decided to set up a twitter account for the old blog. Basically it will let you know when I post a new blog and also link to it for you to read. Amazing! Its like RSS never existed!
So follow me at twitter.com/buildanddestroy if you want.
My friend Graeme got me into My Bloody Valentine and it wasn’t even that long ago. He’d sent me over a dvd of mp3s from Japan and he had stuck on Loveless on one of them. I had read that Boards Of Canada were really influenced by Loveless and My Bloody Valentine and listening to the music you can definitely here the big influence. I think it took buying an iPod for me to really get into alot of bands. I am used to just buying lots of vinyl and mainly 12″ singles. I used to sit at my desk with my turntable beside me and listen to records that way. Anyway, I have my ticket for the MBV ATP! I can’t wait.
I recently picked up the first couple of issues of Bonafide magazine. It’s a hip hop magazine of sorts coming out of Leeds and London. The first issue has an interview with Emmet Keane of Answer, EhQuestionMark?, Kool Keith and others. Issue 2 has an interview with Gareth Bayliss, Peanut Butter Wolf, Flying Lotus and a Mo’Wax retrospective. The magazine has got a slick feel to it and is a dinky little size. I hope they keep going and that I see this magazine in the shops. Head on over to their site and order yourself an issue now or head over to Piccadilly Records and order it there.
Couldn’t find a trailer for this, but it is an amazing and imaginative movie.
I’ve really been enjoying this 12″ alot recently. Its all very 80s and moody. I can imagine this being used to soundtrack some tender moments in a film. “I’ll Keep On Loving You” is my favourite on the record. It’s a slow 100bpm number and its great to listen to when the Sun is coming down, especially when the guitar comes in. The b-side, “Living Without Your Love”, is a great 80s electro love tune. The kinda thing you don’t really hear any more. Its a proto house kinda vibe. Anyway, this is out through DFA on 12″ and download now and it has been out for ages too! You can check it over at Walter Jones’ Myspace page.
